Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Subaru Crosstrek than in the Nissan Rogue Sport, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Nissan Rogue Sport and the Subaru Crosstrek.

Convenience
With the Subaru Crosstrek, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Nissan Rogue Sport, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

Cost

Whether you pick the Nissan Rogue Sport or the Subaru Crosstrek, it's going to cost you about the same.

The Nissan Rogue Sport will cost more in terms of transportation costs than the Subaru Crosstrek.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Nissan Rogue Sport doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Subaru Crosstrek.
