Dependable SUVs like the Hyundai Tucson and Nissan Rogue are built to offer a safe and comfortable ride. Which one's right for you, though? To help drivers in Ithaca, Vestal, and Sayre decide, the team at Maguire Hyundai looks at what each one has to offer in this Hyundai Tucson vs. Nissan Rogue comparison. Don't hesitate to contact us today with any questions!

Specs & Capability

The Hyundai Tucson offers two reliable engines. The most capable powertrain is a 2.4L 4-cylinder engine that gets up to 181 horsepower. That kind of production can help you haul some extra cargo. The Tucson has a max towing capacity of 2,000 pounds.

There's only one engine available in the Nissan Rogue. Unfortunately, its 2.5L 4-cylinder engine can only get up to 170 horsepower. That small drop in horsepower has a big impact on its towing capacity. The Nissan Rogue can only tow up to 1,102 pounds.

Interior Dimensions & Amenities

Both the Hyundai Tucson and the Nissan Rogue have seating for up to five people. Each one offers lots of cargo room and a choice between cloth and leather seats. However, the Hyundai Tucson offers a more comfortable ride.

For starters, it gives your passengers more space. The second row features 39.2 inches of headroom and 38.2 inches of legroom. The Nissan is a little more cramped with 38.5 inches of rear headroom and 37.9 inches of legroom.

The Hyundai also offers more amenities. While heated front seats are available in both SUVs, the Tucson also offers heated rear seats and ventilated front seats. You'll also be able to let in some fresh air with a panoramic sunroof.

The Nissan Rogue doesn't offer ventilated seats or heated rear seats. While a panoramic moonroof's available, the Rogue doesn't offer a sunroof.

Safety Features

The Hyundai Tucson is built to keep you and your passengers safe. It has six airbags, including front, front side, and roof-mounted side-curtain airbags that cover both rows of seats. The interior also has standard front seatbelt pretensioners and Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children (LATCH).

To help prevent accidents, the Tucson offers lots of driver-assistance features. Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist and Smart Cruise Control with Stop & Go look out for the front of your SUV, while Blind-Spot Collision Warning and Lane Keeping Assist cover your sides. You can even see what's around your vehicle using the Rear View Monitor and Surround View Monitor.

There's even technology monitoring how you drive. The Driver Attention Warning analyzes your driving patterns. If it detects any signs you're tired or distracted, it will send you a reminder to focus on the road or take a break.

The Nissan Rogue also features six airbags, LATCH, and safety features like Blind Spot Warning. While it looks out for what's around your SUV, it doesn't offer any technology that can monitor how you're driving, like the Driver Attention Warning in the Tucson.
