SUV sales have surpassed those of traditional cars in North America in recent years, and the trend does not appear to be about to change. Consumers now realize that it is possible to get a spacious and versatile vehicle without compromising on driving enjoyment, fuel consumption and agility.
The 2017 Nissan Rogue and the 2017 Hyundai Tucson are two perfect examples of this reality. Indeed, they offer relatively low fuel consumption ratings, inspired driving and plenty of interior space. That said, if space is your most important criterion, it's hard to do better than the 2017 Nissan Rogue.
A much larger trunk in the 2017 Nissan Rogue than in the Hyundai Tucson
We just have to take a look at the numbers to realize that the Nissan Rogue has a big advantage in the space department. To begin with, the Rogue offers the option of accommodating 7 passengers when needed with an optional third row of seats. This option is not available in the Tucson.
If the Rogue offers this option, it’s because the trunk is one of the largest in its class with 1,112 liters of cargo space with all seats in place, and nearly 2,000 liters with the rear seat down. The Tucson offers 877 liters with all seats in place, and 1,754 liters with the rear seat down. As you can see, the Rogue is clearly the most versatile vehicle in this comparison.
