2020 Nissan Rogue VS. Hyundai Tucson VS. Kia Sportage
Compact sport utility vehicles (SUVs) are becoming increasingly popular and there are plenty of them on our roads. Customers are spoiled for choice and need to know which model is likely to meet their needs best.
Baie-Comeau Nissan on the North Shore, near Pointe-Lebel, Chute-aux-Outardes and Godbout, presents its 2020 Nissan Rogue by comparing it to two other SUVs, the Kia Sportage and the Hyundai Tucson.
Competition's Getting Tougher, But...
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. The numbers don't lie; the Rogue is frugal and gives you more for your money.
Plus, the Nissan Rogue is equipped with the unique technology of ProPilot Assist. With this available technology from Nissan, your Rogue helps you maintain a safe distance from the vehicle in front, while keeping you in the middle of the lane without ever taking control of the vehicle. It's ideal for heavy traffic and long trips. ProPilot Assist features include electronic parking brake, power steering, intelligent all-speed cruise control and a hold function. In short, ProPilot incorporates more advanced driving assistance technologies than its rivals. In contrast, this technology is not as advanced in the 2020 Sportage or Tucson.
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. With its intelligent all-wheel drive, it will perfectly negotiate curves on twisty roads and will be smooth during your longest trips. With its LED headlights with high-beam assistance, you'll be in full view of other vehicles, but also in safety.
In addition, with its many innovations that protect you (ProPilot Assist, intelligent emergency braking system, blind spot warning system, cross-traffic alert system, intelligent perimeter display with moving object detection, lane departure warning system and prevention systems, etc.), the Nissan Rogue has been named "Best Safety Choice" for 2018 by the prestigious Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). The award attests just how hard the Japanese automaker is working to stand out from the competition and ensure that the right safety measures are in place.
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. Clearly, the Rogue is the best choice among those listed in this blog.
