So continue reading to learn why customers favor the 2023 Mazda CX-50 over the Nissan Rogue.
The 2023 Mazda CX-50 comes with an innovative interior with state-of-the-art technology, powerful performance features that will help dominate the road, and a state-of-the-art safety system. The starting price is $26,800, which is a fantastic deal for those who are looking for more value with their purchase.
The interior cabin of the 2023 Mazda CX-50 consists of a 10.25-inch center-mounted display that provides access to various applications, including Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration, maps, playlists, contacts, and Bluetooth capability. Alongside the touch screen capability is the Bose Premium Audio System, providing a one-of-a-kind listening experience for drivers and passengers throughout the SUV. Besides the technology, there are many comfort features. These include a heated steering wheel, dual-zone climate control with a pollen filter, available heated front seats, a 6-way manual adjustable driver's seat, and a Terracotta leather-trimmed interior.
Next comes safety, and with the i-Activsense safety system, drivers are equipped with both accident-prevention measures and driver-assistive features. The amenities included are adaptive front lighting, automatic high-beam control, adaptive radar cruise control, blind-spot monitoring, lane departure warning, and forward-collision warning. In addition to these features, the SUV comes with an advanced airbag system that keeps drivers in an upright position should an accident occur, and with 911 dialing and roadside assistance, you can stay prepared for what life may throw at you.
Lastly, the SUV comes with two engine options to choose from. The first choice is the SKYACTIV-G 2.5 DOHC 4-cylinder engine that produces 187 horsepower. The alternative SKYACTIV-G 2.5 engine with Twin-scroll Turbo and i-stop technology produces a robust 227 horsepower. Alongside the power, drivers can rest assured they are getting the most out of their drive with an EPA-estimated 27 MPG. The SUV boasts more than just its power, as it is equipped with a drive mode selector. The modes include normal, sport, off-road, and the available towing mode with a max capacity of 3,500 lbs to take on heavy-duty jobs easily. With all the power offered, drivers can experience a ride unlike any other and get the most out of each drive.
The main competitor to the 2023 Mazda CX-50 is the Nissan Rogue, with a starting price of $27,150. This makes the SUV more expensive, but a higher price tag does not necessarily mean more features. As you will soon find out, the Nissan Rogue has less to offer drivers.
The interior of the Nissan Rogue comes with a touch screen infotainment center that provides drivers with applications including Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and navigation. Alongside the touch screen is the available Bose Premium Audio system to deliver high-quality sound throughout the cabin. In addition to the technology are the comfort features. This includes available leather trim seating, dual-zone climate control, and available heated seats. However, even though the Nissan Rogue has similarities with the technology, it does not uphold the standard features within the 2023 Mazda CX-50.
When reviewing the Nissan Rogue's safety features, drivers will soon learn it does not include as much as the 2023 Mazda CX-50. These features include automatic braking, blind-spot warnings, rear cross-traffic alerts, and lane departure warnings. Unfortunately, though the SUV comes with plenty of driver-assistive features, it lacks the overall protection in the event of an accident and does not feature emergency roadside assistance like the 2023 Mazda CX-50, leaving it at a significant disadvantage.
The Nissan Rogue only offers one standard engine option, while its competitor offers two. The 1.5L 3-cylinder engine produces 201 horsepower and has a towing capacity of 1,500 lbs, making it less efficient than the 2023 Mazda CX-50. Additionally, the SUV has multiple driving modes: sport, off-road, snow, auto, and eco. As a result, the performance of the Nissan Rogue is similar to its competitor, but the 2023 Mazda CX-50 excels in dynamic driving technologies that automatically adapt to specific driving conditions providing a smoother ride overall.
After comparing the two SUVs, it is clear either model is capable of providing an extraordinary driving experience. However, when diving deeper into the specifications, the 2023 Mazda CX-50 still reigns superior over the Nissan Rogue. The car is equipped with more innovative technology features that come standard throughout every trim, an incredibly protective safety system, and performance capabilities that take the stress out of unpredictable driving situations.
