2014 Nissan Rogue vs. 2015 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 will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Kia Sorento.

Convenience
The Nissan Rogue requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Kia Sorento, 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). 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. In this case, the Nissan Rogue will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Kia Sorento.

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. When looking at overall length, the Nissan Rogue takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Kia Sorento.

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. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries in the Nissan Rogue as you will in the Kia Sorento.

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