INTERIOR
Hyundai Santa Fe

SUVs like the Hyundai Santa Fe and the Nissan Rogue are designed to get you, your company, and your cargo wherever you need to go. Both SUVs have spacious cabins to keep your crew calm, cool, and collected. Which model is more accommodating, though?

Commutes With Company

So much more space can be found in the Hyundai Santa Fe. Its standard 3-row seating offers room for up to seven riders to climb aboard. Overall, you’ll get 152 cubic feet of passenger volume, so it feels generously proportioned, no matter where you’re seated. Who can say no to a little more room to stretch out?

With the Nissan Rogue, a 2-row SUV that seats up to five, you’re afforded 105.4 cubic feet of passenger volume, which is spacious albeit limiting. The Santa Fe’s extra space encourages you to invite more friends or family members along without the concerns of bumping elbows or stepping on toes.

Sizing up Your Next SUV

Let’s take a better look at their interior dimensions:

With more wiggle room in the Santa Fe—even when just comparing their first and second rows—both your tallest and smallest passengers will be able to kick back and relax no matter how far away your destination.

TECHNOLOGY
Hyundai Santa Fe

The windshields on the Hyundai Santa Fe and the Nissan Rogue are portals to adventure. Their integrated touchscreen displays and extended instrument clusters are gateways to your vehicle and to your infotainment. Check out how they’ll each aid your travels.

Clear Visuals

Much larger screens populate the Hyundai. Behind the wheel, the digital instrument cluster can be upgraded to 12.3 inches. You can clearly see your car’s speed, fuel, and other information on this display. The Nissan likewise offers an optional 12.3-inch digital cluster. When properly equipped, either model will display your vehicle’s necessary information in stunning quality.

Experience Your Entertainment

The main touchscreen in the center of the Hyundai dashboard standardly measures 12.3 inches . This screen will show your controls for the available 12-speaker Bose® premium audio system. You can use the standard wireless Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ integration to access your apps on the road while keeping the cabin free of cords and clutter!

In the Rogue, the standard NissanConnect® intuitive touchscreen spans eight inches, quite a bit smaller than the one in the Hyundai. It also provides smartphone integration, although you’ll need to remember to pack a cord. Similar to the Santa Fe, the Rogue offers an optional Bose® premium audio system; the difference is that there are just 10 speakers, two fewer than in the Santa Fe. So, if you’re looking for a more convenient setup, enhanced usability, and a live concert listening experience, the Santa Fe is perfect for you.

SAFETY
Hyundai Santa Fe

You’re all set for safety when driving either of these crossovers. Both models are equipped with driver-assistance features designed to keep your vehicle within your intended lane and help protect you and yours from sights unseen. When you’re faced with parking your car, though, will you have enough guidance?

Protected on All Fronts

Both the Hyundai and the Nissan can be equipped with tools that alert you to objects, pedestrians, and other vehicles in your path. They each have similar, brand-specific versions of these features:

  • Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist
  • Blind-Spot Collision Warning
  • Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist

As such, you’ll have a virtual copilot helping look out for you, including in those hard-to-see areas.

Parking Made Easy

Once you’ve arrived safely at your destination, you’ll need to park. When that time comes, the Hyundai offers a high-end device you may be unable to resist. The Santa Fe’s available Remote Smart Parking Assist allows you to use your key fob as a remote, so your car can essentially park itself—even when you’re not seated inside behind the wheel! Just stand back and watch the convenience unfold.
