Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Nissan Rogue than in the Hyundai Kona, due to its greater head- and legroom. 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 Hyundai Kona.

Convenience

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).

Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Hyundai Kona will cost more in terms of transportation costs than the Nissan Rogue.
