2016 Kia Sorento vs. 2015 Nissan Rogue Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Kia Sorento than in the Nissan Rogue. The Nissan Rogue offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Kia Sorento, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Kia Sorento as you will with the Nissan Rogue, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The Kia Sorento will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Nissan Rogue, which has a much lower MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Kia Sorento and the Nissan Rogue have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Kia Sorento is much wider than the Nissan Rogue, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Kia Sorento, which is slightly longer than the Nissan Rogue.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the Kia Sorento does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Nissan Rogue.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Kia Sorento is clearly the choice over the Nissan Rogue for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Kia Sorento greatly out-muscles the Nissan Rogue.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Kia Sorento and the Nissan Rogue. The Kia Sorento has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Nissan Rogue.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Kia Sorento than that of the Nissan Rogue.
