2018 Nissan Rogue vs 2018 Mazda CX-5 in Joliet, IL

We at Thomas Nissan understand that choosing the perfect compact midsize SUV can be a daunting process. It can be difficult to decide when there are just so many options out there. In order to assist you in the decision-making process, we have decided to pit the remarkable 2018 Nissan Rogue against a fierce rival in the 2018 Mazda CX-5. As you will soon see, these two SUVs are almost equal, but the Nissan Rogue rises above the Mazda CX-5. Give us a call at 815-741-5353 to schedule a test drive today!

Let’s begin our competition on the inside, since it’s where you will be spending the majority of your time. While both of these compact midsize SUVs come equipped with a standard 6-way manual-adjustable driver’s seat and an available 8-way power-adjustable seating function, that is where the similarities end. You will have plenty of space for everyone’s belongings inside the Rogue, as you will find 39.3 cubic ft. of room even when all seats are occupied. You may have to leave a couple things behind if you choose the Mazda CX-5 because It only offers 30.9 cubic ft. of space. When you need some more cargo volume for all of your purchases from Louis Joliet mall, the SUV from Rogue gives you a generous 70 cubic ft. of cargo space. Once again, the SUV from Mazda falls short by only providing you with 59.6 cubic ft. of room.

Vehicles today are equipped to keep you connected wherever you go. However, not all vehicles have the same features. For example, the 2018 Rogue has Apple CarPlay™1 and Android Auto™2, two functions that allow you to connect to your favorite music hands-free. They also grant you access to some of your favorite smartphone applications on the go. You won’t find either of these two features on any of the Mazda CX-5’s trim levels. Something else that you won’t find in the SUV from Mazda is Siri® Eyes Free3. It comes standard on the Rogue’s base model and lets you completely integrate your smartphone to the Nissan Rogue without taking your eyes off of the road.

Based on the results from the 2018 Nissan Rogue vs 2018 Mazda CX-5 in Joliet, IL, comparison, the clear winner is the 2018 Rogue. With its superior cargo capacity and host of advanced technologies, the Mazda CX-5 simply cannot keep up. To take a closer look at this compact midsize SUV from Nissan, come into Thomas Nissan today. We have convenient business hours Monday through Saturday, so there is always a good time to stop by. Your next adventure begins at 1427 Larkin Avenue in Joliet, IL. Our friendly staff will be waiting to assist you!
