The small SUV market is more crowded than ever. With exceptional choices among the Nissan lineup like the Kicks and Rogue, you might find it overwhelming to determine which one best suits your needs.
To help, the resident Nissan experts at our dealership near Los Angeles have touched on both models.
The 2020 Nissan Kicks vs. the 2020 Nissan Rogue: What’s the Difference?
The 2020 Nissan Kicks
Although it’s the smallest SUV in the Nissan lineup, the 2020 Nissan Kicks packs impressive value for Los Angeles area drivers.
Starting at just $18,870, the Kicks boasts a formidable 122 horsepower through its 1.6L engine. In the absence of rip-roaring speed, the Kicks delivers excellent fuel economy with 31 CITY and 36 HWY MPG.
The standard Nissan Safety Shield® 360 substantiates value even further with advanced safety technology like automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, rear automatic braking, and rear cross-traffic alert.
As for practicality, the 2020 Nissan Kicks possesses plenty of cargo volume behind the rear seats – 25.3 cu. ft. to be exact. Fold the rear seats down for a remarkable 32.3 cu. ft. feet of storage. Unlike the textbook SUV, however, the Kicks does not offer all-wheel drive.
All-in-all, the 2020 Nissan Kicks is a highly affordable and feature-rich compact SUV.
The 2020 Nissan Rogue
For $25,300, Los Angeles drivers can score much more SUV in the 2020 Nissan Rogue. The first difference of note, when compared to the Kicks, is the 170 horsepower, 2.5L engine, which offers true to form all-wheel drive capability.
Arguably more noticeable is the sheer size of the 2020 Nissan Rogue over the Kicks. With the second-row seats folded down, you open up 70 cu. ft. of storage – more than double of how much can fit in the Kicks. Although you settle on reduced fuel economy, the disparity is rather slight with strong 26 CITY and 33 HWY MPG.
Like the Kicks, the 2020 Nissan Rogue offers Safety Shield® 360 as a standard.
At the end of the day, the 2020 Nissan Rogue lives up to its brawnier price tag with more power, cargo space, and all-wheel drive. Which SUV is right for you depends on both your budget and the need for traditional SUV versatility.
