Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Kia Seltos than in the Nissan Rogue Sport. 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 Kia Seltos.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Kia Seltos 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 Kia Seltos 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. Both the Kia Seltos and the Nissan Rogue Sport have similar Destination Charges.

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

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

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

Performance
The Kia Seltos 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 Kia Seltos and the Nissan Rogue Sport. The Kia Seltos has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Nissan Rogue Sport.

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