2022 Nissan Rogue vs 2022 Hyundai Tucson

2022 Nissan Rogue vs 2022 Hyundai Tucson


Why settle for a plain, ordinary SUV when you can have a ride that does it all? For 2022, both the Nissan Rogue and Hyundai Tucson have gone through some major upgrades in order to bring you the best version of these popular models thus far. Equipped with the latest technology in both convenience and entertainment (as well as a better drive feel), these two contenders have much to offer. But which one will actually have you saying, "Money well spent!"? The experts at Maus Nissan of North Tampa have all the answers you're looking for.


2022 Nissan Rogue vs 2022 Hyundai Tucson

If you were to do a blind tour of these two SUVs, you may be hard-pressed to find some of the distinct differences. That's because at first glance, they both offer extremely similar interior features and technology. However, it's the features that you don't see that puts the Rogue well ahead of the Tucson.



The drivetrain is where the new 2022 Nissan Rogue really shines. Since an SUV is literally defined as a sport utility vehicle, what's the point of owning one if you can't take it out on fun adventures? The Rogue can handle any terrain and environment that you pass by throughout your journey with a handful of intuitive driving technologies to effortlessly guide you along. And of course, the Rogue has the engine power to pull it all off with a 1.5L VC-Turbo capable of 201 horsepower. Not to mention, this is the world's first variable compression turbo engine which automatically transforms based on your driving habits to bring you unmatched power and efficiency. The most current version of the Xtronic CVT adds to the fuel efficiency of the Rogue's impressive mileage rating of 30 city and 37 highway miles per gallon. That's not even all that this super SUV has to offer in terms of performance.


2022 Nissan Rogue Dynamic Driving Technologies

Intelligent Trace Control

       You never know what lies ahead, but it could be a sharp turn. Avoid tipping over with Intelligent Trace Control which brakes each wheel individually to help you take smoother, more controlled turns.

Active Ride Control

       Back roads and older highways can get a bit bumpy. Active Ride Control adjusts your brakes and torque, so it feels like there aren't any bumps, to begin with.

Hill Start Assist

       For many cars, a steep enough hill could mean the end of the journey. Hill Start Assist lets you scale hills safely and with confidence so you can keep on going.

Automatic Brake Hold

       The longer the road trip, the harder it is on your feet. Automatic Brake Hold will keep pressure on the brakes for you so you can take a short rest as you're waiting at a stoplight or in a traffic jam.


Although the new Tucson comes with a 2.5L GDI/MPI 4-cylinder engine, the specs are still significantly lower than the Rogue. Its horsepower caps out at 187 and it can only get up to 33 highway miles per gallon. You can opt-in for the available HTRAC All-Wheel Drive, but the Rogue's available Intelligent All-Wheel Drive is preferred over HTRAC by many. When it comes to driving technology, the most that the Tucson has to offer is electronic stability control.


Safety Features

Like with many car brands, Nissan has their own suite of standard safety features which they call Safety Shield 360. It includes basic safety features such as Rear Automatic Braking, Blind Spot Warning, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Lane Departure Warning, High Beam Assist, and Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection. But aside from what comes standard in most (if not all) Nissan vehicles, the 2022 Rogue comes with extra safety features such as ProPILOT Assist and the incredibly handy Intelligent Around View Monitor which gives you a bird's-eye view of your surroundings by utilizing four different cameras that can be accessed with split-screen close-up shots on your display. With the intuitive ProPILOT Assist, your Rogue can:

       Identify speed limit signs and adjust your speed accordingly

       Automatically slow down for you when you use an off-ramp

       Keep you centered in your lane

       Maintain a safe speed and distance from vehicles ahead of you


Hyundai also owns a patented collection of safety features called SmartSense which involves the basics, including lane keep and assist guidance along with collision avoidance capability. The new Tucson comes with SmartSense, but you won't find anything too fancy in this category other than that.



Both the Rogue and the Tucson share many similarities when it comes to interior design and features. For instance, they both have a dual-panel moonroof/sunroof, a memory system for both the seats and side mirrors, a Bose premium audio system, and heating for the steering wheel and seats. These are all fine and dandy, but when it comes to a comfortable ride, the seats themselves are incredibly important.


From a single glance, you'll notice that the seats in the Rogue look much more comfortable with the soft quilted design. Made of semi-aniline leather, the Rogue is like a dream come true for those who long for a truly relaxing drive without unnecessary strain on their back. The Tucson may also come with leather seating, but it comes in a more rigid design that'll leave you missing your couch back home. One other noticeable difference between these two SUVs is that the Tucson comes with a basic dual-zone temperature control system while the Rogue kicks things up a notch with tri-zone automatic temperature control.


Bottom Line

You'll be surprised to know that both of these SUVs are quite affordable, with the Rogue starting at $27,150 and the Tucson starting at $25,800. But for such a slim price difference, you'll be getting so much more with the new Nissan Rogue. With a better engine equipped with intuitive technology, plenty of proactive safety features, and an absolutely comfortable driving experience, it's no wonder the Nissan Rogue is as popular as it is!
