More and more consumers are moving to the compact SUV segment instead of buying another sedan when it is time to change their current vehicle. With all the improvements made to SUVs, you get a vehicle that is often just as nice to drive as a car and almost as fuel-efficient, but much more spacious.
Two examples are the 2017 Nissan Rogue and the 2017 Hyundai Tucson. They require little compromise in driving and performance, but they are more spacious and versatile. This is even truer with the 2017 Nissan Rogue.
Nearly 300 liters more space in the 2017 Nissan Rogue
When we compare the interior space offered by these two models, we realize that the 2017 Nissan Rogue clearly has the advantage in terms of versatility. It is one of the most spacious compact SUVs in its class with 1,112 liters of cargo space with all seats in place, while if you lower the rear seat you get close to 2,000 liters of cargo space.
The 2017 Hyundai Tucson offers 877 liters with all seats in place, and 1,754 liters with the last row of seats lowered. There is so much space in the Rogue that it is possible to add a third row of seats that are there if needed, an option not found in the Hyundai Tucson.
More power with better fuel economy for the 2017 Nissan Rogue
In addition to having more space, the 2017 Nissan Rogue also has the advantage in terms of the power of its entry-level engine as well as fuel economy. It is powered by a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that delivers 170 horsepower and 175 lb.-ft. of torque, with an average fuel consumption of 9.2 liters per 100 kilometers in the city and 7.0 liters per 100 kilometers on the highway in front-wheel models, and 9.6 liters per 100 kilometers in the city and 7.4 liters per 100 kilometers on the highway with all-wheel drive.
The Hyundai Tucson is powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that offers 164 horsepower and 151 pound-feet of torque. This engine has an average fuel consumption rating of 10.1 liters per 100 kilometers in the city and 7.8 liters per 100 kilometers on the highway with FWD, and 11.0 liters per 100 kilometers in the city and 9.1 liters per 100 kilometers on the highway in all-wheel drive models.
