Overview: Tucson vs Rogue

 The Hyundai Tucson and Nissan Rogue are extremely alike in many ways; they offer similar tech options and have comparable gas mileage. Both vehicles achieve an EPA-estimated average of at least 29 MPG combined for city and highway driving, which is outstanding for the class.  

Each of the vehicles features a similar suite of driver-assisting safety systems, including a standard rearview camera with a five-inch display.

In terms of power, the 2017 Tucson can reach up to 175 horsepower so you can zip through your commute, while the 2017 Rogue only achieves 170 horsepower.

Customization and Safety

With six different trim levels to choose from and tons of available tech features, the 2017 Tucson is fully customizable to whatever is best suited to your lifestyle. The Rogue is available in only three trims.

It's no surprise that the 2017 Hyundai Tucson has such great safety ratings since it has safety features not available in any other vehicles in the class. For example, Lane Change Assist measures the speed of an approaching vehicle in the adjacent lane and determines if it is safe to change lanes. If it's not safe, the driver is alerted with an audible and visual warning.

Tech Specs: Hyundai vs Nissan

 Available Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ make the 2017 Tucson fully compatible with your smartphone. That way, you can easily access your music and apps right on your dashboard display. Both vehicles offer auxiliary and USB ports as well as standard satellite radio.

Hyundai's Blue Link® mobile app allows you to control many of your car's systems from the palm of your hand. The car-integrated system can even send for help automatically in the event of a collision. The smartphone app can be used for tasks, such as locking and unlocking your vehicle remotely, or pre-heating or cooling the interior so it's comfortable before you even open the door.
