Hyundai Tucson vs. The Nissan Rogue

The Hyundai Tucson is the Clear Compact SUV Choice Over the Nissan Rogue for Car Shoppers Near Austin


The compact SUV class has gotten much more competitive in recent years as the category has grown in popularity for drivers from Round Rock to San Marcos, TX and beyond. With space and capable engines, these SUVs make convenience sporty again, so parents can handle their duties then have some fun on the road. If you're considering cars in this class, you've probably read about the Hyundai Tucson and the Nissan Rogue, which are two of the most popular compact SUVs, but how do you choose between them?

Below, customers will find a comparison of the two models that covers all of the qualities that make the class so popular, so be sure to see which of them comes out on top!

Price and Warranty

Getting the best value when car shopping is something that all drivers can get behind, and the Hyundai Tucson has it in spades. Its starting price, $22,550, falls more than $2,000 under that of the Nissan Rogue, $24,800, and the Tucson comes standard with higher quality materials, like YES Essentials® stain-resistant cloth seats, than the Rogue.

That value pales in comparison to the value of the warranties that come with each new Hyundai Tucson. Its basic warranty covers smaller problems you may experience, and it runs for 5 years or 60,000 miles, which easily bests the 3-year/36,000 mile basic warranty of the Rogue, and for any powertrain problems, like your transmission and engine, the Tucson has a 10-year/100,000 mile warranty, which again beats the 5-year/60,000 mile powertrain warranty of the Nissan Rogue.


Cars have gotten much safer over the years, and recently those improvements have come in the form of driver-assistance features, which includes everything from pre-collision braking to adaptive cruise control to blind spot monitoring. While these features are available on both models for those who want an extra set of eyes looking out for them, the Hyundai Tucson is also available with a Dynamic Bending Lighting System, which lets you see more when driving around corners, while the Nissan Rogue does not.

While these features may prevent you from getting in most accidents, there are sometimes where collisions are unavoidable, and the Hyundai Tucson has design aspects, like crumple zones, which are built to help in these instances. It's part of why the Hyundai Tucson earned a 5-Star Overall Safety Rating from the NHTSA, a metric that the Nissan Rogue only earned four stars in.



We mentioned that sportiness is what separates compact SUVs from other SUVs, and the nimble Hyundai Tucson is certainly able to captivate. It has two engine options, one of which has more horsepower than the only engine that the Nissan Rogue offers, and it's lighter than the Rogue so that extra power goes further regarding how sporty your drive feels. Plus, the Hyundai Tucson is available with a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission that delivers a better driving feel than the continuously variable transmission of the Nissan Rogue.


We covered some of the features, like the stain-resistant seats and bending light system, that the Hyundai Tucson offers that the Nissan Rogue does not, but it doesn't stop there. From ventilated seats that make dealing with Austin summers a breeze to an 8-inch touchscreen that is easier to navigate than the smaller touchscreen of the Nissan Rogue, the Hyundai Tucson has everything you could need to enjoy each and every ride.
