If an adventure in Somerset, Bristol, or Fall River is calling your name, you need a capable SUV that can answer it. With so many top-notch contenders on the market, however, how do you know which one's the right fit for you?

The 2020 Subaru Outback and the 2020 Nissan Rogue are sure to be at the top of your list. To help you decide which one will better suit your lifestyle, our team at Stateline Subaru has put these two in a head-to-head comparison. Gather around, it's the Subaru Outback vs. Nissan Rogue. Let's see which one comes out on top!

Engineered to Explore

The new Rogue comes standard with a 2.5L DOHC engine that produces 170 horsepower. The new Outback, on the other hand, will give you more brawn with its standard 2.5L SUBARU BOXER® engine. It cranks out up to 182 horsepower. To ensure a smooth and efficient drive, both models also come with a Continuously Variable Transmission.

When it comes time to hit the road, you'll need an SUV that's prepared for both the pavement and uncharted paths. You'll get that with the Outback. It comes standard with Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive that's designed for optimal balance and stability. The Rogue has an available all-wheel drive system, but front-wheel driver is standard.

To improve grip and traction further, the Outback is also standardly equipped with X-MODE®. It optimizes the Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system to maximize performance on- and off-road.

A Versatile Venture

The interior of an SUV is important. It keeps you comfortable and stows all the gear you need for your journey, but which one of these models does a better job in this area?

As for keeping you comfortable, you and your companions can sit in the soft touch of leather-trimmed seating that's available in both the 2020 Subaru Outback and the 2020 Nissan Rogue. Plus, both models offer the personalization of available dual-zone automatic climate control and heated front seats.

When it comes time to stow your cargo, the standard flat-folding rear seats will let you maximize cargo space in either SUV. However, you'll have a little bit more room in the Outback interior. The Subaru Outback offers a total of 75.7 cubic feet of cargo room as opposed to the 70 cubic feet of space in the Rogue.

Technology for the Trek

You'll also want to stay connected when you venture out. That's why both SUVs come standard with Android Auto™, Apple CarPlay®, and Bluetooth® phone integration. You'll be able to see more with the available 11.6-inch touchscreen display of the Outback. The touchscreen display of the 2020 Nissan Rogue is maxed out at seven inches.

It's important to have an SUV that keeps you and your traveling companions safe, too. For that, both models come equipped with Pre-Collision Braking and Lane Keep Assist. Plus, there's available Reverse Automatic Braking to help you with parking.

You can rely on the 2020 Subaru Outback to go the extra mile to ensure the safety of your friends and family with the STARLINK® Safety and Security connected services. This available system includes features that include Automatic Collision Notification, SOS Emergency Assistance, vehicle diagnostics, and more!
