The 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe vs. the 2016 Nissan Rogue


2017 Hyundai Santa Fe

2016 Nissan Rogue

If you're from Savannah, Hilton Head Island, or Beaufort and you're looking for an SUV with power, connectivity, and passenger and cargo room to boot, then look no further than the 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe. Offering a powerful and highly efficient engine, a swathe of technologies to keep you informed and the back seat happy, and enough room for the whole family, the 2017 Santa Fe is simply the best deal around. Just compare it to a competitor, the 2016 Nissan Rogue, to see how the Santa Fe excels. 

Power and Efficiency 
First of all, power: the Santa Fe comes equipped with a ruggedly powerful engine that is as efficient as it is reliable: 

  • The 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe - Each of the Santa Fe trims is powered by a 3.3L V6 engine that generates 290 hp and gathers 252 lb-ft of torque, providing a magnificent 5,000 lbs of towing capacity. A 6-speed automatic transmission system-along with Dual Continuously Variable Valve Timing and Drive Mode Select-helps maximizes fuel economy. 

  • The 2016 Nissan Rogue - There's really no comparison here: the Rogue provides a 2.5L, 4-cylinder engine that produces only 170 hp. 
Technologies to Keep You Connected 
Here, too, drivers from Savannah, Hilton Head, and Beaufort will find that the Santa Fe unambiguously outperforms the 2016 Nissan Rogue. 

  • The 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe - A partial list of the available technologies shows the Santa Fe's superiority clearly: (1) SiriusXM Travel Link lets you identify landmarks, destinations, and gas stations; (2) Android Auto allows you to connect your Android directly to your Santa Fe; (3) AM/FM/CD/MP3, HD Radio Technology and SiriusXM Satellite Radio presents you with a huge array of news and music sources; (4) Clari-Fi Music Restoration Technology ensures that you have access to peak sound quality; and (5) a set of 115-volt power outlets will prevent your mobile devices from ever losing their charge. 

  • The 2016 Nissan Rogue - The Rogue features some of the same or similar systems-Sirius Radio, Nissan Connect, and a Bluetooth phone device-but it doesn't offer Clari-Fi or the 115-volt power outlets. 
Space for Family and Friends  
Finally, the Santa Fe offers a generous abundance of interior space for passengers as well as cargo. 

  • The 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe - Depending on the trim level, the Santa Fe provides room for either 6 or 7 passengers. Meanwhile, it boasts 146.6 cubic feet of passenger volume, as well as 80 cubic feet of cargo volume. 

  • The 2016 Nissan Rogue - Though it offers an EZ Flex Seating System and Divide-N-Hide Cargo System, the Rogue only offers 5 seats for passengers.
