Nissan Rogue Sport vs Hyundai Tucson: Which Is More Fuel-Efficient?

Whether you’re commuting into the city for work or dropping the kids off at soccer practice, it’s important you’re able to rely on a vehicle with the fuel economy to get you there—and back—without the need to stop and refuel.

Luckily, the Nissan Rogue S fits the bill with standard Front-Wheel Drive (FWD) and its EPA-estimated 25 city and 32 highway MPG.* Not only is this rating impressive, but it’s also considerably higher than the MPG of the Tucson. On the Tucson’s standard FWD model, it generates an EPA-estimated 23 city and 28 highway MPG.

Here’s another fuel-efficient perk of the Rogue Sport: it comes standard with an Xtronic CVT® (Continuously Variable Transmission). This transmission adjusts automatically to deliver straightforward acceleration while also generating commendable mileage.

The Tucson comes standard with a 6-speed automatic transmission, but without the technology of a CVT, it won’t be as efficient or smooth of a drive.
