So much more space can be found in the Hyundai Santa Fe. Overall, you’ll get 111.5 cubic feet of passenger volume, so it feels generously proportioned. With the Nissan Rogue, you’re afforded 105.4 cubic feet of passenger volume, which is quite a bit less.

Let’s take a better look at the interior dimensions.

Much larger screens populate the Hyundai, too. Behind the wheel, the digital instrument cluster can be upgraded to 12.3 inches. This presents your car’s speed, fuel, and other information on the display. The Nissan comes close by offering an optional 12-inch Advanced Drive-Assist® Display.

Your main screen in the center of the Hyundai dashboard, the touchscreen navigation system, measures 10.25 inches across. This will show your controls for your available 12-speaker Harman Kardon® Premium Audio system. Either Apple CarPlay® or Android Auto™ will allow you to use your apps, and the wireless device charging system keeps your smartphone going.

In the Nissan, the upgraded NissanConnect® intuitive touchscreen spans nine inches. On this screen, you’ll pick the song or station you’d like to listen to on the optional 10-speaker Bose® Premium Audio System. While driving around coastal Connecticut or into the city, the available wireless charging pad will juice up your phone.

Hyundai Santa Fe Driving

Hyundai Santa Fe vs Nissan Rogue Safety

Luckily, you’re all set for safety when driving in either of these crossovers. When you’re faced with parking your car, though, will you get enough guidance?

Both the Hyundai and the Nissan can be equipped with tools that alert you to objects in your path. The available Parking Distance Warning – Forward and Reverse in the Santa Fe and the optional Front and Rear Sonar System in the Rogue both serve this purpose.

Additionally, the Hyundai provides a high-end device that you may be unable to resist. The available Remote Smart Parking Assist feature enables you to use your key fob as the remote, so your car will essentially park itself. Just stand back and watch the convenience unfold.
