The Toyota RAV4 is Your Best Bet for an SUV Near Minneapolis & St. Paul

If you're shopping for an SUV, you'll want to choose the new Toyota RAV4, a great ride that dominates the class. When compared to the Ford Escape and Nissan Rogue, you'll find the RAV4 is your best bet. Find your new RAV4 at our Coon Rapids, MN Toyota dealership serving Minneapolis and St. Paul today, but first take a look at five areas the new RAV4 bests the competition.

Toyota RAV4 vs. Ford Escape & Nissan Rogue

  • While earning comparable fuel efficiency ratings, the RAV4 bests the Escape and Rogue in terms of performance, thanks to a base four-cylinder engine producing 176 horsepower, compared to 168 and 170 horsepower outputs form the Escape and Rogue, respectively.
  • The RAV4 offers more cargo room compared to the Escape and Rogue. The RAV4 features 73.4 cu.ft. of cargo space, compared to 68 and 70 cu.ft in the Escape and Rogue, respectively.
  • In the latest edition, the RAV4 offers a wealth of standard safety options, like automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control and a lane departure warning. Similar features in the Escape and Rogue are costly add-ons or only available at more expensive trim levels.
  • If you're looking for better fuel efficiency, consider the available Toyota RAV4 Hybrid, which includes most of the same specs and features as the regular RAV4, all with better fuel economy. Hybrid versions of the Escape and Rogue either don't exist in the Ford's case, or are not yet available in the Nissan SUV's case.
