2021 Hyundai Santa Fe vs 2021 Nissan Rogue

Serving Lexington Park, MD

With fresh looks and exciting features in both the 2021 Hyundai Santa Fe and the 2021 Nissan Rogue, it is easy to feel torn about your options. Because the Santa Fe’s base price is slightly higher than the Rogue’s starting price, you may assume that the Rogue would be a better option. However, after you check out the remarkable differences between these compact crossover SUV models, you will see where the true value lies.


These two-row crossovers both have upright stances with prominent front ends. The Santa Fe stands apart with its chrome accent bar and deep contouring on the sides. The striking grille spans across the width of the nose, and it is accentuated by T-shaped LED lights and crisp air intake ports. The Nissan Rogue’s exterior, on the other hand, has chunky molding on the lower portion of the door panels and an expected V-shaped grille. The separated headlights give the Rogue's nose a fractured style.


The specific features in the 2021 Hyundai Santa Fe and the current version of the Rogue are progressively advanced as you step up to the higher trim levels. However, the Santa Fe is available with some features that you will not find in the Rogue. These include wireless Android Auto and wireless Apple CarPlay. Features that are optional in the Santa Fe and not available in the Rogue are a 10.25-inch touch display screen, a 12.3-inch instrumentation display screen, a hands-free liftgate, a safe exit assist, and others.


For the 2021 Santa Fe, two powertrains are offered across the trim lineup. These are a 191-horsepower, 2.5-liter engine, and a 277-horsepower, turbo 2.5-liter gas engine. The Rogue’s primary engine is a 181-horsepower four-cylinder engine.
