Having an SUV to get you around Marion, Herrin, and Carbondale, IL, is an incredible feeling. The experience is only heightened when you have the Nissan Rogue or the Hyundai Tucson at your side.

That being the case, there are differences between these SUVs that could sway you one way or the other.

What are they? Watermark Nissan of Marion is here to point them out in the hope that you'll be able to reach a decision!

Nissan Rogue vs Hyundai Tucson: MPG

You don't want to continuously have to pay attention to your vehicle's fuel level while you drive. It creates unnecessary worry in regards to having to fill up the gas tank. When you have the Nissan Rogue or the Hyundai Tucson at your disposal, though, that's something you'll never have to worry about.

Drivers who get behind the wheel of the Tucson will get an EPA-estimated 26 city/33 highway/29 combined MPG. While that's enough to keep you going for a while, the Nissan Rogue can offer you a little more in this area. In the Nissan, you'll get an EPA-estimated 27 city/35 highway/30 combined MPG.*

So, if you want to maximize your range with a single tank of gas, go with the Nissan Rogue. 

Nissan vs Hyundai: Trim Levels

Having as many options as possible as it pertains to choosing your next vehicle is a good problem to have. You'll find that the Nissan Rogue and the Hyundai Tucson both provide multiple trim levels to choose from. However, there is only one vehicle that gives you the most options-that's the Nissan Rogue.

Choosing the Nissan Rogue means you'll have access to four trim levels, while you'll only have three trims to choose from in the Hyundai Tucson.


Nissan Rogue trim levels:

  • S
  • SV
  • SL
  • Platinum

Hyundai Tucson trim levels:

  • SE
  • SEL
  • Limited

Nissan Rogue & Hyundai Tucson Safety

At any moment, danger can strike. You'll want to have the peace of mind of knowing that you'll be protected at all times. In the Nissan Rogue and the Hyundai Tucson, you'll have access to a wealth of safety features that'll do exactly that.

At their base levels, both vehicles come with similar features, such as Lane Departure Warning (Lane Keeping Assist in the Hyundai) and Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection (Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist with Pedestrian Detection in the Hyundai).

That's where the similarities start to end.

As part of Nissan Safety Shield® 360, you'll get standard safety features across all Nissan Rogue trims, such as a Blind Spot Warning and Rear Cross Traffic Alert-neither of which are standard in the Tucson. To get these features in the Hyundai, you'd have to upgrade to a higher trim level.

This being the case, if you want to get the most out of your car's safety measures, the Nissan Rogue is the better choice. 

Nissan Rogue vs Hyundai Tucson: Who Wins?

Having advantages, such as higher MPG, more trim levels, and enhanced safety features, means that the Nissan Rogue is the better choice for your next automotive companion.
