Packing Up

When it comes time to load up for your next journey, are you bringing along your friends for an afternoon hike or are you heading into the wilderness for a long camping trip? Either way, the Subaru Forester has more room for both.

Both the Forester and the Rogue offer seating for up to five. Plus, they have a variety of comfort amenities to keep everyone relaxed. Both offer available leather-trimmed seats and a Dual-zone automatic climate control system. The Forester, however, will give your friends more room in the back with 39.6 inches of headroom. The Rogue only has 38.5 inches.

If you choose to bring along more cargo for an extended camping adventure, both models come with folding rear seatbacks so you can maximize your storage. Only the Subaru Forester will give you the space you need to load up an extra tent or some fishing gear. It offers 76.1 cubic feet of space, while the Rogue is maxed out at 70 cubic feet.

Destinations Near and Far

Both SUVs have the fuel efficiency you need to reach the most remote campground. They boast an EPA-estimated 26 city/33 highway MPG.

If you're looking for power to go along with that impressive fuel economy, you'll get it with the Subaru Forester. It comes standard with the 2.5L SUBARU BOXER® engine, which generates 182 horsepower. The standard 2.5L 4-cylinder engine of the Rogue is topped out at 170 horsepower.

When your journey leads you onto an all-terrain path or into adverse weather conditions, both SUVs offer an all-wheel drive system. Only the Subaru Forester offers the available X-MODE®. It optimizes the all-wheel drive system to maximize your traction on slippery surfaces.

Innovative Technology

When it comes to advanced features, both the Rogue and Forester are well equipped. They come with a variety of driver-assistive features that'll work to give you more confidence behind the wheel. EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology comes standard on the Forester, while the Rogue offers the features of the standard Safety Shield® 360.

Both SUVs also offer hands-free phone capability with standard Bluetooth® connectivity. Plus, you'll be able to sync up your smartphone with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ compatibility.

You'll be able to see even more behind the wheel of the Subaru Forester with its available 8-inch touchscreen display. The touchscreen of the Nissan Rogue, on the other hand, is maxed out at only seven inches.
