Both fun to drive and ready for adventure, in the city or country, these SUVs are designed to adapt to your environment. The 2020 Nissan Rogue is an aerodynamic crossover that presents a larger frame than the RVR, but stays slight thanks to its formed design. A bold front leads the Mitsubishi RVR with an unmistakable grill that frames this smaller SUV, which might do well in the city, but lacks some of the size and utility that the Rogue offers when the terrain gets rough in the country. The two SUVs present luxurious and tasteful interiors that satiate drivers and passengers alike, with top-notch comfort and technology, though the Rogue provides a touch more space.

|Engine||2.5L DOHC 16-valve 4-cylinder||2.0L DOHC MIVEC 4-cylinder|
|Fuel Economy (city/highway) (L/km)||9.1 / 7.1||9.7 / 7.8|
Engine power and fuel efficiency is another area where this Nissan separates itself from other crossover SUVs—the RVR in particular. The Rogue has a 2.5L DOHC 16-valve 4-cylinder engine producing 170 horsepower and 175 lb-ft of torque, while the RVR only has a 2.0L DOHC MIVEC 4-cylinder, only reaching 148 horsepower and 145 lb-ft of torque. While both have CVTs, the Nissan-branded Xtronic provides seamless efficiency and power, in addition to its Sport Mode. The RVR offers Mitsubishi’s All-Wheel Control system to combat unruly Canadian winters, while the Rogue utilizes Nissan’s Intelligent All-Wheel Drive system to deftly handle wet winter roads. While close in some aspects, the Rogue powers ahead as the best performance option between the two.
2020 Nissan Rogue Vs. 2020 Mitsubishi RVR Safety
From Nissan ProPilot ASSIST and Intelligent Mobility technologies, to its driving dynamism features and safe build, the Nissan Rogue is a supremely safe Nissan SUV. Intelligent Cruise Control and Steer Assist keep you steady and centred on the high way, while the Intelligent Around View monitor will help you park better than ever before. Zone body construction creates an impact-absorbing cabin, along with 6 standard airbags making the vehicle’s slick design as functional and safe as it is stylish. The RVR is highlighted by its Traction Control Logic, Anti-Lock Braking, and Forward Collision Mitigation, which are handy, but provide fewer safety utilities than those brought forth in the Rogue.
2020 Nissan Rogue or 2020 Mitsubishi RVR?
While you can be forgiven if you believe the design of these two vehicles remains close to even, both the performance and safety features of the Nissan Rogue place it clearly above the Mitsubishi RVR. The 2020 Nissan Rogue may start at $26,898, higher than the 2020 Mitsubishi RVR at $22,998, but the Nissan clearly makes up that slight price difference with it’s greater capability. The Rogue is the perfect example of Nissan style, performance, and safety, making it an SUV fit for modern life.
