Are you looking for a smaller crossover SUV? The 2022 Nissan Rogue and 2022 Hyundai Tucson are two good options. The specifications of these two vehicles are identical, but as you will see, the Nissan Rogue has a few subtle benefits that set it apart. Continue reading to learn more about the 2022 Nissan Rogue.
Design & Style
The optional heads-up display on the Rogue Platinum projected speed and navigation instruction readouts in front of the driver’s line of sight, allowing drivers to observe information without taking their eyes off the road. The Tucson doesn’t provide a heads-up display.
The driver’s power window on the Rogue opens and closes with a single touch of the window control, making it easier to use at drive-up windows and toll booths. To fully close the regular driver’s power window on the Tucson, the switch must be kept down the entire time.
The Rogue’s speed-sensitive wipers accelerate with the car, eliminating the need for the driver to constantly regulate the wiper speed. The Tucson’s basic manually variable intermittent wipers must be changed on a regular basis.
When you put the Rogue SL/Platinum in reverse, both rearview mirrors tilt away from their original position. This improves the driver’s vision of the curb when parallel parking. When you shift out of reverse, the mirrors return to their previous locations. The mirrors of the Tucson do not automatically switch for backing.
Technology & Safety
The Nissan Rogue’s front and rear seat shoulder belts contain pretensioners to tighten the belts and eliminate harmful slack in the case of a collision, as well as force limiters to limit the pressure the belts will apply on the passengers. The Hyundai Tucson does not have rear seat belt pretensioners.
The Nissan Rogue comes standard with driver and front passenger knee airbags, which are located low on the dashboard. These airbags assist block the driver and front passenger from slipping beneath their seatbelts or the primary frontal airbags during a crash, keeping them better positioned for optimal protection. The Tucson doesn’t offer knee airbags.
The Rogue Platinum comes standard with a front seat center airbag that is deployed between the driver and front passenger to protect them from injuries caused by colliding in severe side collisions. The Tucson lacks front seat center airbags.
The 1.5 turbo 3-cylinder in the Rogue generates 14 more horsepower (201 vs. 187) and 47 pound-feet more torque (225 vs. 178) than the 2.5 DOHC 4-cylinder in the Tucson.
The Rogue is equipped with a standard continuously variable gearbox (CVT). With no “steps” between gears, it may keep the engine at the most efficient speed for fuel efficiency or at its peak horsepower for maximum acceleration indefinitely. The Tucson does not have a CVT transmission.
The Bottom Line
In this comparison of the 2022 Nissan Rogue vs. 2022 Hyundai Tucson, the 2022 Nissan Rogue has the upper hand. Advantages include increased horsepower, hybrid engine efficiency, passenger safety, and reliability.
