An SUV is designed to be a vehicle for a group, typically for your family, as you get on your way to the places you want to go. You want to know you have a vehicle that is ready when you are to get there and do so safely. So, what do you go with when you want to make a change and upgrade the family vehicle: the Nissan Rogue or the Hyundai Santa Fe?

At St. Charles Nissan, we are helping you make that decision with this comparison of the Nissan Rogue vs. Hyundai Santa Fe. We want to help drivers in St. Charles, St. Louis, O'Fallon, and Saint Peters find the right SUV for your family.

Nissan Rogue vs Hyundai Santa Fe Performance

You want the SUV you choose to be reliable and capable of completing any task. Both vehicles come equipped with the power to do that.

The Nissan Rogue comes with a 2.5L 4-cylinder engine that gets 170 horsepower and 175 lb-ft of torque. The Santa Fe has a 2.4L 4-cylinder engine with 185 horsepower and 178 lb-ft of torque.

The area where these two vehicles differ is in the fuel economy. The Rogue gets an EPA-estimated 26 city/33 highway MPG1 compared to an EPA-estimated 22 city/29 highway MPG for the Santa Fe.
