Ford Escape Vs. Nissan Rogue: Which Compact Crossover Should I Lease In 2023?

Compact crossovers are becoming increasingly popular thanks to their stunning looks, agility, and improved capabilities. It’s normal to see shoppers struggle when choosing which new compact SUV to lease in 2023. This article will compare two exciting choices, the 2023 Ford Escape, and the 2023 Nissan Rogue, to help you make a more informed choice when leasing.

For 2023, the Ford Escape gets a facelift and looks much more gorgeous than last year’s model, while the 2023 Nissan Rogue receives slightly reshuffled trim offerings.

Engine And Transmission

Ford offers a variety of powertrain options for the Escape, including two thrifty hybrid setups. The base engine is a 180-hp 1.5-liter turbocharged three-cylinder, but most buyers will be happy to opt for the optional 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that churns out 250 hp and 280 lb-ft of torque. The hybrid and plug-in models mix a 2.5-liter four-cylinder with two electric motors to make 192 horsepower and 210 horses, respectively. On the other hand, every Nissan Rogue is powered by a 1.5-liter turbocharged three-cylinder that puts out 201 hp and 225 lb-ft of torque. The Nissan Rogue and Escape hybrid models employ a continuously variable automatic transmission to handle gearshifts, while the gas-powered Escape uses an eight-speed automatic transmission. Both vehicles can be had with either front- or all-wheel drive.

Fuel Economy

Thanks to its hybrid powertrains, the Escape boasts outstanding EPA numbers. The most fuel-efficient Ford Escape is rated 42 mpg city and 36 mpg highway, against the Rogue’s 30 mpg city & 37 mpg highway. So buyers looking to save up on gas money will undoubtedly settle for the Ford Escape hybrid.


The newly restyled Escape boasts a spacious, elegant cabin with essential features. Textured cloth seats are standard, while synthetic leather seats are offered on higher trims. The standard 8.0-inch touchscreen display is replaced by a 12.3-inch touchscreen on upper trims. Optional features include a Head-up display, a 10-speaker Bang & Olufsen stereo system, a 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster, etc.

The Rogue sports an interior slightly more upscale than the Escape. Cloth seats are standard, while faux leather upholstery and quilted semi-aniline leather seats are optional on top trims. The Rogue’s largest infotainment display is a 9.0-inch touchscreen which sets it behind the Escape in that category. Optional features include Head-up display, a 12.3-inch reconfigurable digital gauge cluster, a 10-speaker Bose stereo system, wireless charging, etc.

Safety And Driver Assistance

As expected, both crossovers boast a plethora of standard safety features; however, you will need to opt for higher trims to enjoy advanced ones like

  • Nissan’s ProPILOT Assist with Navi-link
  • Lane intervention
  • Traffic sign recognition
  • A 360-degree camera with split view
  • Adaptive cruise control
  • Evasive steering assist, etc.

Review From Ashley Smith: This was my first experience using a leasing company. In the past, I leased my cars directly through the dealership and always felt that I didn’t receive a fair price. I had such a pleasant experience with VIP Auto Lease from the first time I called to when my car was delivered. Michael Jeffries was a pleasure to work with. He was very responsive and able to get me a great deal. He made the leasing process smooth and easy. I was so impressed there were no hidden fees and that the car was delivered right to my house! I will definitely use VIP Auto Lease again in the future! Thank you again!
