Roomy, affordable, smart, comfortable, and powerful with all-wheel drive standard, the 2019 Subaru Outback is a five-passenger SUV perfect for just about any of your drives, from a work commute to a family road trip, but it's also part of a vehicle class with a variety of offers.

The 2019 Subaru Outback stands out from the SUV competition in a few different ways, and to highlight why you may find it a better option than others, we compared the Subaru Outback with the 2019 Nissan Rogue. Check out the findings of this SUV comparison when you read on!

Cabin Space

Both the 2019 Subaru Outback and 2019 Nissan Rogue have ample amounts of leg and headroom for the front seat passengers, but if you are carpooling or bringing friends somewhere, they'll be happier in the new Outback. The Subaru SUV has more leg and headroom for the second row while also having a wider back seat, which makes sure those in the rear don't feel squeezed in. The larger cabin space of the Subaru Outback also shows when you fold the back row down to fit more cargo as it has a greater max cargo capacity than the 2019 Nissan Rogue.


The 2019 Subaru Outback has several aspects to thank for its performance, from ground clearance to engine torque, and those items help push it ahead of the 2019 Nissan Rogue. To start, the Subaru Outback comes standard with all-wheel drive for traction on slippery terrain and roads while the Nissan Rogue has you paying extra for all-wheel drive. Want a choice over the engine powering your SUV? The new Outback has two engine options, both with more horsepower than what the lone Rogue engine offers, and the Subaru Outback tows more than the Nissan Rogue when you choose an Outback with V6 engine.


Having traction and power plays a role in passenger safety as you're more in control over your car, but the 2019 Subaru Outback doesn't stop there. The new Subaru SUV comes standard with EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology, which includes systems like adaptive cruise control not standard in the 2019 Nissan Rogue. It's due to features like this, and others like steering responsive headlights, that the 2019 Subaru Outback is a 2019 Top Safety Pick+ of the IIHS while the 2019 Nissan Rogue is without an award from that automotive safety council.

Other Features

Beyond cabin space, the engine, and safety measures, the 2019 Subaru Outback completes its wonderful driving experience with all sorts of other features. Like the Nissan Rogue, the new Subaru Outback comes standard with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, but unlike the Rogue, the Subaru SUV offers an 8-inch touchscreen that's easier to use than the smaller Rogue display. The 2019 Outback also has comfort features, like a 10-way power-adjustable driver's seat and heated seats for the two rows, not in the 2019 Nissan Rogue, so you can expect more enjoyment from the Outback.
