The 2017 Nissan Rogue vs. the 2017 Hyundai Tucson
The SUV segment is definitely a competitive one. The rise of compact SUVs has made it even more competitive, offering up a whole new class of vehicles with the utility drivers need and better fuel economy ratings. The Nissan Rogue and Hyundai Tuscon are two of the most popular compact SUVs, excelling in virtually every area. Both offer not only impressive performance, capability, and efficiency, but also a wide range of safety and tech features. So, which model is the best ones for you and your family? Let’s take an in-depth look at the 2017 Nissan Rogue vs. the 2017 Hyundai Tuscon…
Both the Nissan Rogue and Hyundai Tuscon offer versatile seating for 5 passengers. The rear seats in both vehicles fold down, allowing for a lot of usable, versatile space. The Rogue and Tuscon also have some incredible available features like all-wheel drive, a power liftgate, driver assistance systems, and much more. Both the Rogue and Tuscon also have sleek exterior styling and high-class interiors so they can stand apart from the competition. But there are indeed some key differences:
|2017 Nissan Rogue||2017 Hyundai Tuscon|
|Fuel economy||9.2/7.0 City/Hwy
|Horsepower||170 HP||164 HP|
|Optional third-row seating||Yes, for up to 7 total passengers||No|
|360-degree Around View Monitor with Moving Objects Detection||Available||No|
|Intuitive All-Wheel Drive||Available||Only standard AWD|
|Cargo Capacity||70 cu. ft. with Divide-N-Hide Cargo System||61.9 cu. ft.|
|Intelligent Cruise Control||Available||Only standard cruise control|
|2017 IIHS Top Safety Pick+||Yes, when properly equipped||Top Safety Pick only, when properly equipped|
The Tuscon has a slightly lower MSRP, but you’re getting more value with the Rogue: a considerably better fuel economy, both in and out of the city; more power for tough Canadian winters; greater cargo capacity for the kids’ sporting events; a hybrid option; and more. Perhaps one day you’ll want to seat more than 5 in your vehicle–you can do that with the Rogue. You’ll definitely appreciate having Intelligent Cruise Control, or adaptive cruise control, which automatically adjusts speed to maintain a safe distance behind vehicles ahead. And then there’s Intuitive All-Wheel Drive that senses when one of your wheels starts to slip and reduces torque to that wheel, helping to keep you on the road.
Nissan’s Around View Monitor with Moving Objects Detection feature is there to give you a 360-degree camera view of your surroundings and, as you’re backing up, alert you of any objects too close to your vehicle. This is yet another Nissan safety innovation we believe you’ll benefit greatly from.
