Brakes and Stopping Comparison

The Rogue Sport’s standard front and rear disc brakes are vented to help dissipate heat for shorter stops with less fading. The rear discs on the Santa Fe Sport are solid, not vented.

Tires and Wheels Comparison

The Rogue Sport SL’s tires provide better handling because they have a lower 45 series profile (height to width ratio) that provides a stiffer sidewall than the Santa Fe Sport 2.0T Ultimate’s 55 series tires.

The Rogue Sport has a standard easy tire fill system. When inflating the tires, the vehicle’s integrated tire pressure sensors keep track of the pressure as the tires fill and tell the driver when the tires are inflated to the proper pressure. The Santa Fe Sport doesn’t offer vehicle monitored tire inflation.

Chassis Comparison

The Nissan Rogue Sport may be more efficient, handle and accelerate better because it weighs about 400 to 700 pounds less than the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport.

The Rogue Sport is 1 foot shorter than the Santa Fe Sport, making the Rogue Sport easier to handle, maneuver and park in tight spaces.

Ergonomics Comparison

The Rogue Sport’s speed-sensitive wipers speed up when the vehicle does, so that the driver doesn’t have to continually adjust the speed of the wipers. The Santa Fe Sport’s manually variable intermittent wipers have to be constantly adjusted.
