Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Volkswagen Taos than in the Nissan Rogue Sport, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Nissan Rogue Sport offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Volkswagen Taos, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Nissan Rogue Sport as you will with the Volkswagen Taos, 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 Nissan Rogue Sport will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Volkswagen Taos.

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

Handling
The Nissan Rogue Sport has the same turning radius as the Volkswagen Taos, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Nissan Rogue Sport has a little less horsepower than the Volkswagen Taos.

Powertrain
With its lower torque engine, the Nissan Rogue Sport doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Volkswagen Taos.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Nissan Rogue Sport and the Volkswagen Taos. The Nissan Rogue Sport has significantly less cargo capacity than the Volkswagen Taos.
