Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Kia Sportage than in the Nissan Rogue Sport. The Nissan Rogue Sport offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Kia Sportage, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Kia Sportage 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). The Kia Sportage is somewhat more expensive 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 Sportage and the Nissan Rogue Sport have similar Destination Charges.

The Kia Sportage is about the same width as the Nissan Rogue Sport. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Kia Sportage, which is slightly longer than the Nissan Rogue Sport.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Kia Sportage transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Nissan Rogue Sport.

The Kia Sportage 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 Sportage has a little more horsepower than the Nissan Rogue Sport.

Utility
