Nissan Rogue vs. Hyundai Santa Fe

July 8th, 2021 by


Shopping for a new SUV can be an exciting process. With all the new, innovative technologies and features being added to our vehicles every year, it can be tough to decide which model is the perfect fit for you! 

We feel confident that you’ll fall in love with the Nissan Rogue. In fact, we at Midway Nissan are so confident in fact we want to show you a direct comparison to some of our competition, the Hyundai Santa Fe.


Equipped with an exceptional 2.5-liter engine. Rogue features the Continuously Variable Valve Timing Control System (CVTCS) and Direct Injection Gasoline™ (DIG). That lets you unleash up to 181 horsepower of stirring performance. Add impressive fuel economy, and you have the best of both power output and efficiency. 

The all-new Rogue puts the world at your fingertips, with five distinct settings on the Drive Mode Selector. With Sport, Off-Road, Snow, Auto, and Eco Modes, there’s virtually no limit to where you can go. 


The all-new 2021 Nissan Rogue has undergone a full, top-to-bottom redesign. Available with a host of family-friendly features, from its Tri-Zone Automatic Temperature Control to its Zero Gravity Seats, the Rogue is made with the whole family in mind. Even rear passengers can enjoy a clear view of the sky and stars, with the available Dual Panel Panoramic Moonroof.

With generous trunk space and flexible seating, load up everything you need for adventure with up to six configurations of flexible shelving with the available Divide-N-Hide® cargo system. Go hands-free

Customize your driving experience with Nissan’s available Intelligent Key®. The Rogue’s available memory system remembers the preset seat and side mirror positions for up to two drivers, adjusting them to each person’s preference before you get in.  We call it your perfect spot.

Safety & Tech

A full suite of safety and driver-assist technologies come standard on every Rogue. 

Rogue offers six standard safety features that look out for you in every direction. These features include; Intelligent Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection, Rear Automatic Braking, Blind Spot Warning, Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, Lane Departure Warning, and High Beam Assist. Known as the Safety Shield 360, this suite of smart technology is all about driving confidence. 

The Rogue stays on top of the drive, sensing what’s ahead. If an off-ramp is coming up, Rogue can smoothly negotiate it. If it detects a speed limit sign, Rogue can automatically adjust your preset speed. With available ProPILOT Assist™ with available Navi-link technology, our all-new crossover can also help you keep pace with stop-and-go traffic and stay centered in your lane.

The Competition

On the other hand, our competition, the Hyundai Santa Fe provides drivers with modest design features at a higher starting price. Under the hood, you will find a similar 2.5-liter engine, but it will not have the same capabilities as the Rogue which utilizes Nissan’s CVTCS and DIG systems. Inside the car, drivers will find a dual-zone cooling system that is not adjustable for passengers in the back seats. Finally, the Santa Fe can come equipped with Hyundai SmartSense™ safety features, however, they do not come standard with the vehicle, and will cost you more for an upgraded trim level.   

Of course, you don’t have to take our word for it. Come into Midway Nissan and test-drive the 2021 Rogue for yourself. We know you’ll love it.
