A good SUV can change the way you approach the road. The problem that many drivers face? Picking just one SUV from the market's multitude of options. In the compact segment, at least, that decision is made a bit easier by award-winning options like the 2018 Subaru Crosstrek. Competitively priced and extremely capable, there's a reason it's become one of the most popular SUVs for a wide swathe of drivers.

It's not without its competitors, however. Other SUVs like the Nissan Rogue target the same vein of drivers with their own value-driven packages. The big question for you is which option delivers the best package for you and your life.

The 2018 Subaru Crosstrek

A roomy five-seat SUV renowned for its long-term value and ability both on and off the road, the Subaru Crosstrek mixes comfort, versatility, and technology to create one of the safest and most capable vehicles in its size class.

The 2018 Nissan Rogue

With a "just-right" design that provides interior comfort and nimble road performance, the Nissan Rogue delivers the agility many drivers want combined with feature packages that pack in a wide range of modern perks.

Performance: 2.5-liter inline-4 (170 horsepower, 175 pounds-feet of torque, 26/33 miles per gallon), 2.0-liter inline-4 + electric motor (176 horsepower, 33/35 miles per gallon)

The Nissan Rogue has a few things going for it. Its engine options are more powerful and more efficient than the Crosstrek's. Its suite of standard features may also be slightly more robust. The Crosstrek makes up for that, though, with a more affordable base model, standard all-wheel drive on all models, and the advanced Subaru EyeSight safety system. As comfortable as the Rogue can be, it also fails to match the rugged grit delivered by the Crosstrek. The Rogue is a comfortable commuter. The Crosstrek can pull that off, and then take you camping on the weekends.
