2018 Kia Sportage vs. 2018 Nissan Rogue Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Kia Sportage offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Nissan Rogue. The Nissan Rogue will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Kia Sportage.

Convenience
The Nissan Rogue requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Kia Sportage, making it more convenient to drive.

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). Whether you pick the Kia Sportage or the Nissan Rogue, it's going to cost you about the same.

Both the Kia Sportage and the Nissan Rogue have similar Destination Charges.
