Rogue VS Tucson VS Sportage
Rogue, Tucson or Sportage, which one to choose?
First of all, Nissan is on the right track with its Rogue. Despite stiff competition, it stands out with its price, quality and innovative features. While the 2020 Tucson compact SUV also boasts innovative features, you should know that its entry-level model is equipped with a 2.0-litre 4-cylinder engine that develops 161 horsepower and 150 lb-ft of torque, a little short for a compact SUV. On the other hand, the 2020 Nissan Rogue can count on a 4-cylinder engine that develops 170 horsepower and 175 lb-ft of torque, equivalent to that of the Kia Sportage.
But what makes the Nissan Rogue even more attractive is its fuel consumption. It easily outperforms its rivals in town and on the road. The data is conclusive: Kia is 10.8 (city) and 9.1 (highway) L/100 km, Tucson 10.8 and 9.2 L/100 km and Rogue 9.5 and 7.4 (AWD) L/100 km.
If we agree that the Hyundai Tucson has a great design and the Kia Sportage has good handling, the Nissan Rogue has its own distinctive silhouette and the comfort of its interior gives it better reviews.
Finally, what makes the Nissan Rogue even more distinct from the 2020 Hyundai Tucson and Kia Sportage is its market position. Twice as many Rogues are sold in Canada as Tucson and Sportage combined. This figure for 2019 shows the market's strength for the Nissan Rogue and its great popularity, which is mainly due to the fact that the price/quality ratio is on the side of the Japanese rather than the Korean manufacturer.
