Kia Sportage vs Nissan Rogue:

  • While their starting prices are close, our customers will find a greater amount of wiggle room for their budget with the Kia Sportage and its $23,885 price tag. The base model of the Rogue starts slightly higher at $24,760 and includes all-wheel drive for an additional cost of $1,350 - making it more economical for front- and all-wheel drivers alike to choose the latest Sportage.
  • Customers considering a new Sportage model will have their choice between two powertrains to place under the hood, while the Nissan Rogue only includes a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder that can produce 170-horsepower and 175 pound-feet of torque. The Sportage is not only able to best that with the 181-horsepower and the exact same torque performance of its base level 2.4-liter 4-cylinder, but the added flexibility of the 240-horsepower 2.0-liter turbocharged engine helps make Kia's SUV a winner for many drivers.
  • Of the two models, the Sportage shines with a perfect 5-star overall rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, while the Rogue can only claim a 4-star rating due to sub-par frontal crash and rollover ratings. Not only can you expect your SUV of choice from our dealership to protect you more effectively than the Rogue, but we're also able to provide a greater amount of protection for your vehicle with warranties that last nearly twice as long than those offered by Nissan.
  • The cherry on top of the versatile Sportage for our customers lies with its optional trailer hitch and max trailer weight of 2,000 pounds. In comparison, the Rogue can only tow up to 1,000 additional pounds and doesn't include an available hitch to take advantage of, making our recently redesigned model the better choice for any light towing you may need to handle.

With such a wide array of reasons to stick with the Sportage over one of its primary competitors in the compact SUV market segment, there is truly no better time to explore the options that are waiting for you at our dealership.
