The 2014 Nissan Rogue and 2014 Kia Sorento have proven themselves as reliable vehicles, which is why each has quite a number of fans. But which one is the better SUV? To answer that question, it’s important to look at a few different categories and break down their differences.
The outward appearance of any vehicle will elicit a certain response depending on a person’s preferences. In other words, you’ll need to decide whether the 2014 Nissan Rogue or 2014 Kia Sorento is more up your alley in appearance, though we can say that they are both well-designed and quite stylish.
A big reason why purchasing an SUV is so attractive to certain drivers is due to the amount of space they offer both in the cabin and cargo area. The 2014 Nissan Rogue is definitely impressive in this area thanks to a sizable cargo area and plenty of room for the driver and passengers. The good news is that the 2014 Kia Sorento is impressive in this category as well. Where the Rogue tops its competition is in the quality of the interior materials. The Sorento doesn’t quite match up, so this part of the comparison goes to the Rogue.
Both the 2014 Nissan Rogue and 2014 Kia Sorento come with a base 4-cylinder engine. The Rogue’s engine performs quite well, but some drivers have found that its CVT (continuously variable transmission) can be a bit noisy at times. On the other hand, the Sorento’s engine feels a bit sluggish. It also seems that the Rogue has better handling and a slightly more comfortable ride at times. Which means that the Rogue definitely wins this category.
Fuel efficiency ratings can vary depending on the engine type, so for the sake of argument, we’ll go with the best rating possible. For the 2014 Nissan Rogue, you’re looking at 26 mpg in the city and 33 mpg on the highway. Unfortunately, the 2014 Kia Sorento only gets 20 and 26, respectively, which means that declaring the Rogue the winner of this category is a no-brainer.
SUVs often come with a healthy amount of fun features and the 2014 Nissan Rogue and 2014 Kia Sorento both deliver in this category. Standard features for the Rogue include a four-speaker audio system, rearview camera, Bluetooth connectivity, and more, while you can get additional options like navigation, a nine-speaker premium audio system, dual-zone automatic climate control, and panoramic moonroof. With the Sorento, you receive standard features such as heated mirrors, satellite radio, and Bluetooth connectivity. Available extras include heated and cooled front seats, leather seats, panoramic moonroof, ten-speaker premium audio system, navigation, rearview camera, and more. Since the Rogue and Sorento offer quite a bit of options, the winner of this category will depend on the types of extras you’re most interested in.
