2021 Nissan Rogue Sport | McAllen, TX

Compact crossovers are attractive for young professionals, small families, retirees, and more. If you’re in the market for the best of the best, it’s likely you are considering the 2021 Nissan Rogue Sport and the 2021 Kia Sportage — but which is the right vehicle for you? We took a closer look at the 2021 Rogue Sport and the 2021 Sportage side by side, and in every category, the Nissan Rogue Sport outcompetes the Kia Sportage.

Fuel efficiency (and transmission)

The 2021 Nissan Rogue Sport benefits from the smooth-shifting Xtronic CVT® (Continuously Variable Transmission) while the 2021 Sportage is stuck with a basic, dated six-speed automatic transmission. This difference in transmission creates a large disparity in fuel economy. The 2021 Rogue Sport earns up to 25 mpg in the city and 32 mpg on the highway.* The 2021 Kia Sportage, on the other hand, only manages 23 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway.

Smaller size

The 2021 Nissan Rogue Sport is the true winner when it comes to maneuverability in the city. Its smaller dimensions allow for tighter turns and easier parking.

Safety technology

Safety features should be the number one thing you consider when buying a new vehicle, and here, the 2021 Nissan Rogue Sport soars. The Rogue Sport boasts standard Rear Automatic Braking, but this is not available at all on the Sportage. And while Blind Spot Warning and Rear Cross Traffic Alert cost you nothing extra on the Nissan Rogue Sport, you’ll have to shell out extra for these safety features on the 2021 Kia Sportage.

Storage needs

In the 2021 Nissan Rogue Sport, you will get access to the helpful Divide-N-Hide® Cargo System, which helps organize, store, and secure your essentials and gear. The 2021 Kia Sportage does not offer a comparable system.
