The crossover segment of the automotive industry is becoming more popular, which means there are a lot of options to choose from. Our team here at Serra Toyota is working to pair up all of the crossovers available to show drivers how Toyota vehicles stand up against the competition. For this one, we’re coming the base models of the 2015 Toyota RAV4 to the 2015 Nissan Juke. At first glance, prospective drivers will notice the 2015 RAV4 has a higher starting price point at $25,080 compared to the 2015 Juke at $20,250. We’re going to show you what each one has to offer in order to try justifying the price points.
Overall, the Toyota RAV4 is larger than the Nissan Juke. It offers more space for both passengers and cargo, which means drivers can take more along on each trip. The maximum interior cargo volume more than doubles from the Juke at 35.9 cubic feet to the RAV4 at 73.4 cubic feet. Passenger volume follows a similar trend with 87 cubic feet available in the 2015 Nissan Juke and 102 cubic feet available in the 2015 RAV4.

Drivers trying to choose between these two vehicles must decide if they prefer a better fuel economy or more space for passengers and belongings. When it comes to the warranty, the Toyota RAV4 is covered with ToyotaCare, so it has 24 months or 25,000 miles of no cost scheduled maintenance and roadside assistance. This type of warranty is not available with the Nissan Juke.
When it comes to standard features, both are set with air conditioning, keyless entry and and a 60/40 rear bench seat. Steering wheel controls and speed sensitive volume are also standard on both, but the 2015 RAV4 has voice activated audio controls and cargo tie downs which are not available on the 2015 Juke.
