Sportage vs. Rogue: Which Is Your Next Mid-Size SUV? 

Both crossovers offer standard technology, two engine options, and plenty of cargo space. But, the Sportage delivers driver-assist features that the Rogue lacks. That is not the only contrast between the two. Depending on your exterior favorites, each offers a different look. The Sportage has an athletic posture, whereas the Rogue mimics other SUVs. Whether you want a unique look or a familiar one, the Sportage and Rogue are your midsize SUV contenders. 

Although there are similarities between the two, that does not mean they are equal. When it comes to performance, safety, and warranty, they differ. Below, we breakdown each category for you to see what each vehicle offers.

Sportage vs. Rogue: Performance

If the power of an engine matters to you, then you will want to consider the Sportage over the Rogue. Let’s take a closer look at how your two options stack up.  

2020 Kia Sportage Engine Options:

  • Sportage 2.4 DOHC 4-cyl. at 181 hp
  • Sportage SX Turbo AWD 2.0 turbo 4-cyl. at 237 hp
  • Sportage SX Turbo FWD 2.0 turbo 4-cyl. at 240 hp 

2020 Nissan Rogue Engine Options:

  • Rogue 2.5 DOHC 4-cyl. at 170 hp 

Sportage vs. Rogue: Safety Features

When we compare the Kia SUV vs. Nissan SUV, we found that the Sportage is superior in safety. Both vehicles come with standard airbags, four-wheel antilock brakes, and more. However, the base Sportage shines in several areas. Take advantage of the available blind spot monitor on the Kia Sportage, a feature that is unavailable on the base Nissan Rogue. The Kia Sportage also scored 4 stars in the Frontal Crash: Driver test by the NHTSA. The Rogue fell short with 3 stars. In Side Pole tests, the Sportage earned an impressive 5 stars, while the Rogue once again fell short with 4 stars.

Sportage vs. Rogue: Warranty

When it comes to vehicle warranty, the Sportage is yet again the champ. The Rogue offers a warranty as, well, but it doesn’t quite match up to what is offered by Kia:

2020 Kia Sportage Warranty

  • 60-month/60,000-mile bumper-to-bumper warranty
  • 120-month/100,000-mile powertrain warranty
  • 60-month/60,000-mile roadside assistance

2020 Nissan Rogue Warranty

  • 36-month/36,000-mile bumper-to-bumper warranty
  • 60-month/60,000-mile powertrain warranty
  • 36-month/36,000-mile roadside assistance
