Comparison Review

Comfort
The Hyundai Kona offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Nissan Rogue Sport, with comparable head- and legroom. The Nissan Rogue Sport 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
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Hyundai Kona as you will with the Nissan Rogue Sport, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Hyundai Kona will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Nissan Rogue Sport. 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 Sport.

Dimensions
The Hyundai Kona is a little narrower than the Nissan Rogue Sport, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. If you go with the Hyundai Kona, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Nissan Rogue Sport.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Hyundai Kona doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Nissan Rogue Sport.

Handling
The Hyundai Kona has a smaller turning radius than the Nissan Rogue Sport, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Hyundai Kona has a little more horsepower than the Nissan Rogue Sport.

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

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