2020 Nissan Rogue vs Ford Escape
In the compact SUV market, both the 2020 Nissan Rogue and Ford Escape are popular models that have a lot to offer drivers around East Providence, RI. However, only one of these vehicles is going to be the right fit for your Cranston and Pawtucket area lifestyle.
To help you decide which one that is, our team at Stateline Nissan compared the Rogue vs. Escape. Keep reading to see what we learned.
Infotainment System: Nissan Rogue vs Ford Escape
It’s hard to deny the importance of the right road trip playlist. That’s why we love that both the new Rogue and Escape have top-notch infotainment systems that let you enjoy your carefully chosen playlist when you hit the road.
Whether you’re commuting to work or leaving town for the weekend, both vehicles allow you to play your tunes directly from your phone via Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay® connectivity. These features integrate your smartphone with your car by optimizing your favorite apps for use with your car’s touchscreen display. Apps you can access include:
- Internet radio streaming
- Audio books
- Phone calls and contacts
One major difference is that the 2020 Ford Escape requires an upgrade before the touchscreen, Apple CarPlay®, and Android Auto™ become available. The 2020 Nissan Rogue, on the other hand, offers these as standard features.
Otherwise, both vehicles come standard with Bluetooth® wireless connectivity. This lets you wirelessly connect your smartphone or other device so that you can answer calls or stream music through your car’s speakers.
Interior Dimensions of the 2020 Rogue and Escape
While we’re inside the cabin checking out the infotainment system, let’s look around a bit. You’ll find that both the Nissan Rogue and Ford Escape offer plenty of interior space. They both seat five passengers in total and have comparable passenger volume measurements:
- 2020 Ford Escape passenger volume: 104 cubic feet
- 2020 Nissan Rogue passenger volume: 105.8 cubic feet
While each SUV can accommodate the same number of people, you’ll find a bit of a disparity when you check out the cargo space.
- 2020 Ford Escape cargo volume: 65.4 cubic feet
- 2020 Nissan Rogue cargo volume: 70 cubic feet
Behind the second row, the Rogue and Escape each offer a trunk space that you can utilize if you have a full car of passengers. This area can carry 37.5 cubic feet of cargo in the Escape and 39.3 cubic feet of cargo in the Rogue.
Both vehicles allow you to fold the second-row seats down as well. They each offer a 40/60 split-folding feature that gives you versatility in terms of how you optimize the space for passengers and cargo.
When you fold the rear seats down completely, you’ll find that you can probably fit more in the Nissan Rogue. The Rogue has a total cargo volume of 70 cubic feet while the Escape comes up short with a total cargo volume of 65.4 cubic feet.
