To help each driver find a more comfortable driving position, the Outlander has a telescoping steering wheel. Much better than just a tilt steering wheel or adjustable seat, this allows a short driver to sit further from the steering wheel while maintaining contact with the pedals. The Rogue doesn’t offer a telescoping steering wheel.

The Outlander’s power parking brake sets with one touch and releases with one touch or automatically. The Rogue’s parking brake has to released manually.

The Outlander’s front and rear power windows all open or close fully with one touch of the switches, making it more convenient at drive-up windows and toll booths, or when talking with someone outside the car. The Rogue’s passenger windows don’t open or close automatically.

The Outlander ES’ standard speed-sensitive wipers speed up when the vehicle does, so that the driver doesn’t have to continually adjust the speed of the wipers. The Rogue’s manually variable intermittent wipers have to be constantly adjusted. The Outlander SE/LE/SP/SEL/GT’s standard wipers adjust their speed and turn on and off automatically according to the amount of rainfall on the windshield.

The Outlander’s standard outside mirrors include heating elements to clear off the mirrors for better visibility. Nissan charges extra for heated mirrors on the Rogue.

The Outlander has a standard dual zone air conditioning allows the driver and front passenger to choose two completely different temperatures so people with different temperature preferences won’t have to compromise. This makes both the driver and front passenger as comfortable as possible. Dual zone air conditioning is only available on the Rogue SV/SL.
