Comparison Review

Comfort
The Kia Niro offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Nissan Rogue, with comparable head- and legroom. The Nissan Rogue will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Kia Niro.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Kia Niro as you will with the Nissan Rogue, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). Whether you pick the Kia Niro or the Nissan Rogue, it's going to cost you about the same. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Kia Niro and the Nissan Rogue have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Kia Niro is a little narrower than the Nissan Rogue, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. If you go with the Kia Niro, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Nissan Rogue.

Drivetrain
The Kia Niro has much lower torque than the Nissan Rogue, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Kia Niro has a lot less horsepower than the Nissan Rogue.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Kia Niro and the Nissan Rogue. The Kia Niro has significantly less cargo capacity than the Nissan Rogue.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Kia Niro than that of the Nissan Rogue.
