Nissan Rogue vs Hyundai Santa Fe Sport

The Nissan Rogue vs. Hyundai Santa Fe Sport: The SUV Showdown

The new Nissan Rogue truly brings it against the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport. Both vehicles are quality SUVs with size, capacity and performance to brag about, but who is the winner? You decide!

The Nissan Rogue: The SUV of Champions

The Nissan Rogue is a compact and efficient cross-over that doesn't sell itself short. The Nissan Rogue's size and capacity can fit everything from your partner's extended family to your new biking hobby. The new Rogue is also loaded with extensive available technology and safety features.

True Size and Capacity:

The Nissan Rogue sports a 106.5-inch wheel base with an overall length totaling 184.5 inches and width of 72.4 inches standard on every trim. This size allows for 41.6 inches of headroom in all models without a moonroof. A moonroof lowers the headspace to 39.5 inches.

With a five-seat seating capacity, the Nissan Rogue has more than enough room for all your friends and family. An interior passenger volume of 105.8 cubic feet without the moonroof creates a roomy environment. Although, when one of your friends is moving or you need to hit the slopes for the weekend, it is good to put the rear seats down. With the rear seats folded down in the Nissan Rogue, you will have 70 cubic feet of space.

Loaded with Tech:

The new Nissan Rogue is loaded with technology. The Nissan Intelligent Mobility feature is a must have for this vehicle as it adds cool technology points to your ride, but also much needed safety features. Browse some of the Rogue's technology features below:

  • Intelligent Around View ® Monitor, uses four cameras to give a virtual 360-degree view of your vehicle to see all your surroundings. This feature also alerts you when there is something in your immediate area that you should watch out for. 
  • Intelligent Cruise Control adjusts your speed with the flow of traffic. This also automatically sets a safe distance between you and other cars to help avoid collisions.
  • Nissan ProPILOT Assist Rogue ® assists with daily driving by keeping you in your lane and assisting with autopilot capabilities. This feature can bring your car to a full stop and then bring it back up to speed to properly drive in traffic conditions.
  • Available Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection automatically applies brakes to help avoid or hinder the effects of a frontal collision. This feature is designed to be able to detect an overlooked pedestrian crossing the street at a crosswalk and stop your vehicle.
  • Blind Spot Warning alerts you of other drivers in your blind spot area and allows you change lanes with confidence.
  • Intelligent Engine Brake helps you avoid stopping short and having your lunch fly into the windshield of your new Nissan Rogue.

Hyundai Santa Fe Sport: A Fierce Competitor

The new Hyundai Santa Fe Sport is a mighty contender against the new 2018 Nissan Rogue. The Santa Fe has a generous size and can seat several people but seems to fall short in its available and standard technology features.

Sport Size and Capacity:

With a length of 185 inches and a width of 74 inches, the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport is slightly larger than the Nissan Rogue, but bigger doesn't always mean better. With only 39.6 inches of headroom, taller guests in your vehicle may experience some discomfort.

All trim levels of the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport have a cargo volume of 71.5 cubic feet when the rear seats are folded down. This is only slightly larger than the Nissan Rogue.

Sporting Modern Technology:

The standard Hyundai Santa Fe Sport doesn't come with many bells and whistles but leaves the option open and some of the available features in the low-level trim Sport come standard. A list of several of the Santa Fe Sport technology features are listed below: 

  • Available Blind Spot Detection (BSD)
  • Standard Rearview Camera 
  • Available Multi-View Camera System 
  • Standard Hillstart Assist Control (HAC)
