2017 Kia Sportage vs. 2017 Nissan Rogue
Just what is it that makes a small SUV the ultimate in its class? Is it power? Versatility? Awards? Pick any one of those criteria and you’ll soon realize the 2017 Kia Sportage goes to the head of the small SUV class, while the 2017 Nissan Rogue gets held back and reprimanded for not keeping up with its peer.
What’s so advanced about the 2017 Kia Sportage? It might be the crossover’s available horsepower that begins at 181 HP and moves to a street-cleaving 240 HP in the top-line SX Turbo trim level, which easily overshadows the 2017 Rogue’s 170 HP in all three of its trim levels. Or it could be the 2017 Sportage’s towing power, which is twice that of the 2017 Rogue, as you can hitch up a trailer and move 2,000 pounds of your gear for a trip while the 2017 Rogue peaks at a rather pedestrian 1,000 pounds.
