Read on the discover which of these three SUVs provides everything that you need.

Nissan Rogue Sport vs. Hyundai Santa Fe

  • Right off, you'll see that your cost for the Rogue Sport is lower than the Santa Fe, so you'll imagine what savings you can enjoy in Suttons Bay when you shop the Nissan brand over Hyundai.
  • For fuel economy, the Rogue Sport offers better numbers than the Santa Fe can, and that translates into more savings in your pocket with Nissan than with Hyundai.
  • On the Base Rogue Sport, you'll get the Siri Eyes Free feature, but you won't get that on the Hyundai Santa Fe SE.
  • If the commute in Frankfort requires all-wheel drive, you'll spend nearly $3,000 more for the Hyundai Santa Fe with this option than you would for a Nissan Rogue Sport with AWD.
  • The Rogue Sport can offer you a SiriusXM Satellite Radio Trial Subscription, while the Hyundai Santa Fe cannot offer that on the base trim.
  • The highest trim of the Nissan Rogue Sport offers Distance Pacing Cruise Control with Traffic Stop and Go for less, while the Hyundai Santa Fe's comparable feature, Smart Cruise Control with Stop-Go, will still cost you nearly $10,000 more.
  • The Santa Fe can offer an engine that delivers exciting power, but it only further depletes your fuel economy, which already fell under the specs of the Rogue Sport.
  • On the Rogue Sport SV, you'll get parking sensors to help you get in and out of tough spots, while the Santa Fe SEL doesn't offer this feature, despite costing more than the Nissan model.
  • Blind Spot Warning helps your commute in Interlochen feel a bit less stressful, which is why the Nissan Rogue Sport offers this as a standard feature, while the Hyundai Santa Fe does not.

Nissan Rogue Sport vs. Kia Sportage

  • On the Kia Sportage, your Corrosion warranty will expire after 100,000 miles of driving around Cadillac, while the Nissan Rogue Sport offers an unlimited warranty for Corrosion.
  • In the Nissan Rogue Sport, you'll get more cargo space for your everyday life and everything in between than you would on the Kia Sportage.
  • Not only can the Rogue Sport offer more cargo space than the Sportage, but the Front Legroom and Head Room, and Rear Shoulder Room in the Nissan model are more generous than in the Kia model.
  • Distance Pacing Cruise Control with Stop and Go is a Nissan Rogue Sport special offer, and you'll spend a lot less for the trim level offering this feature than you will for the highest trim level Sportage, which does not offer a comparable feature.
  • Both models offer Blind Spot Warning, but do you really want to spend more than $34,000 to get that feature on the Kia Sportage when you can have it for less on the Nissan Rogue Sport?
  • The available performance specs on the optional engine on the Sportage SX Turbo trim level are impressive, but the fuel economy? Not so much. Not only does the Kia model's fuel economy rating fall below that of the Rogue Sport, but it is only further depleted when adding a more powerful engine into the mix, which also racks up the cost of the vehicle.
  • All-wheel drive costs Houghton Lake drivers nearly $2,000 more on the Kia Sportage than it does on the Nissan Rogue Sport.
  • Brake Assist is an optional feature on the Sportage EX, which means you'd need to spend more to equip it, and you're already spending more for the Kia model than you would be for the Rogue Sport SV, which does have that feature standard.
  • In Kingsley MI, having parking sensors is a good thing, especially when parallel parking your Santa Fe, which is why Nissan offers it on a lower trim level for less than Kia does on the Sportage.
