Hyundai Santa Fe and Nissan Rogue Design

Whether you choose a new Santa Fe Sport or the Rogue for your adventures, you can expect to turn heads wherever you go. Both SUV models offer a spacious and well-appointed interior, with the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport receiving a slight edge over size and cargo capacity, with the second row folded down. In addition to a size advantage, the Santa Fe Sport also offers family-friendly seating surfaces with stain-resistant materials as standard equipment. The Nissan SUV does not offer stain-resistant seats, making it a less desirable option for drivers that want to retain resell value over time. The Hyundai model also offers heated seats and ventilated front seats for improved all-season comfort.

Power and Performance Comparison

The Hyundai Santa Fe Sport doesn't simply offer an attractive shape and high-tech features. This modern marvel of Hyundai engineering also provides Connecticut drivers with a range of performance features that rival its more expensive counterparts. A new Santa Fe Sport comes fitted with a 185 horsepower, 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine to power your excursions. Drivers that crave additional horsepower and capability can choose a 240 horsepower, 2.0-liter turbo engine that will generate plenty of power for transporting passengers and cargo items throughout the Groton, CT region. In comparison with the new Nissan Rogue, the Hyundai generates more horsepower and powertrain options. The Nissan SUV features a 170 horsepower, 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that is much less capable of meeting your various commuting needs.
