Shared features include Bluetooth, advanced cruise control, and folding back seats for expanded cargo space. The Hyundai Tucson brings a bit of extra cargo space, thanks to its larger build.

Hyundai Tucson Vs. Nissan Rogue, Conclusion

While the exterior aesthetic comes down to personal preference, the more aggressive front end of the Rogue has a striking facade. Performance and fuel economy on the Nissan Rogue are far greater than the Tucson, which cannot make up for its deficit despite having a slightly better towing capacity. The smaller engine on the Tucson holds it back from having a satisfying drive, whereas the Nissan Rogue hits the road in stride without holding back. Finally, the interiors are roughly comparable, with the tech in the Rogue slightly edging out the Tucson. Winner: Nissan Rogue
