2015 Nissan Rogue vs. 2015 Subaru Forester

2015 Nissan Rogue SL

Regina and Swift Current drivers who compare the 2015 Nissan Rogue to the 2015 Subaru Forester can’t help but admire the superiority of the former. Offering a greater array of features and impressive efficiency figures – all while starting for less than a Forester – it’s no surprise that the 2015 Rogue has developed such a strong following among Canadian drivers.

Trims and Prices

The 2015 Nissan Rogue starts at just $24,248 when you choose to drive home in a well-equipped S model. For that price, you’ll receive a rearview monitor, remote keyless access system, and an AM/FM/CD audio system with 5-inch color display. In contrast, the 2015 Subaru Forester will set Regina and Swift Current shoppers back at least $25,995 – close to $1800 more than the Rogue.

That trend continues with top-of-the-line trim levels. The premium 2015 Nissan Rogue SL starts at $34,848 – and comes with dual-zone automatic temperature control, leather-trimmed seats, and stunning 18-inch aluminum-alloy wheels. The Forester’s premium 2.0L XT starts at $37,895 – over $3000 more.


The 2015 Nissan Rogue is well-equipped no matter which trim you choose, and comes with standard and optional features which aren’t available with the 2015 Subaru Forester. For example, the EZ Flex seating system in the Rogue is perfect for customizing cargo space, with seats which recline, slide, and tilt forward for easy access to the available 3rd row. You’ll also be able to enjoy a Divide-n-Hide cargo system which is unavailable with the Forester.

More importantly, you’ll miss out on one of the most innovative assistance technologies in recent years when you drive a Forester. The 2015 Rogue’s Round View Monitor uses several cameras to provide a virtual 360º image of your surroundings from a birds-eye perspective. You’ll never have to worry about navigating tight or crowded environments again.


The 2015 Nissan Rogue doesn’t just provide driver assistance technology sourced straight from the cutting edge – it also employs an advanced powertrain. A 2.5L DOHC engine is paired to a continuously variable transmission (CVT), resulting in dependable power and rock-bottom efficiency ratings.

Regina and Swift Current drivers can expected 9.2 L/100km in the city and 7.2 on the highway with FWD, and those numbers only dip slightly with AWD – to 9.5 and 7.4 respectively. In contrast, the 2015 Subaru Forester allows efficiency to peak at 9.6 in the city and 7.5 on the highway with its own CVT system – or 10.6 and 8.4 with a manual transmission. The Forester starts at a higher price – then keeps on eating into your income whenever you pass a gas station.
