2015 Nissan Rogue vs. 2016 Kia Sorento Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Kia Sorento than in the Nissan Rogue, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Nissan Rogue offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Kia Sorento, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Nissan Rogue as you will with the Kia Sorento, 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). Clearly, the Nissan Rogue is a better financial choice over the Kia Sorento, when considering 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 Nissan Rogue and the Kia Sorento have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Nissan Rogue is much slimmer than the Kia Sorento, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The Nissan Rogue is slightly shorter than the Kia Sorento, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
The Nissan Rogue has much lower torque than the Kia Sorento, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Kia Sorento is clearly the choice over the Nissan Rogue for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Nissan Rogue has a lot less horsepower than the Kia Sorento.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Nissan Rogue and the Kia Sorento. The Nissan Rogue has less cargo space than the Kia Sorento, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Nissan Rogue is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Kia Sorento.
