2017 Kia Niro vs. 2017 Nissan Rogue Hybrid

The Nissan Rogue is becoming a sales monster, as the small SUV racked up the most sales for Nissan in 2016, and the line of the popular nameplate is expanding quickly, with new models like the Rogue Sport and the Rogue Hybrid hitting lots in 2017. But what happens if a model's name is worn too thin? The 2017 Rogue Hybrid has a similar design to the standard Rogue but with improved fuel economy and reduced emissions from its combination gas engine and electrical motor. But with all of this fuss you would expect more than a small bump up from the Rogue's fuel economy, with only 33 mpg city, 35 mpg highway with the 2017 Rogue Hybrid. The first-ever 2017 Kia Niro, on the other hand, is out of the blocks in this race and picking up momentum, thanks to its hybrid crossover-leading 52 mpg city, 49 mpg highway in its base FE trim.

We're just getting started, as the 2017 Niro also has a lower asking price than the 2017 Rogue Hybrid, as the 2017 Niro can be yours at Friendly Kia for around $22,300 with our VIP Price, while the 2017 Rogue Hybrid is priced at more than $26,000 for its starting MSRP. With a markup that significant, you'll want a Niro just so you can "go rogue" from the Rogue.

In addition, the 2017 Kia Niro has an SUV-like 54.5 cubic feet for cargo in back, and helpful features like available heated front seats and ventilated front seats, so you can regulate your temperature on the inside, no matter what the temperature is outside your door. The 2017 Rogue Hybrid has available heated seats but not ventilated seats. The 2017 Niro also has regenerative braking, which uses the energy your Niro gives off when you pump the brakes to store energy for later use; the Rogue Hybrid does not have this energy-conserving feature, either.

So, when you've compared fuel economy, price and features, do you want the hybrid crossover that leads the pack and saves you more money, or do you want one of several versions of the same nameplate with inferior fuel economy, features, and even warranty coverage?
