Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Kia Sorento than in the Nissan Rogue, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Kia Sorento offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Nissan Rogue, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Nissan Rogue as you will with the Kia Sorento, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Nissan Rogue will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Kia Sorento. 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 Nissan Rogue and the Kia Sorento have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Nissan Rogue is much slimmer than the Kia Sorento, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The Nissan Rogue is slightly shorter than the Kia Sorento, which may make it easier to park.

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

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Kia Sorento is clearly the choice over the Nissan Rogue for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Nissan Rogue has a lot less horsepower than the Kia Sorento.

Utility
The Nissan Rogue has less seating than the Kia Sorento, making the Kia Sorento the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries in the Nissan Rogue as you will in the Kia Sorento.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Nissan Rogue is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Kia Sorento.
