The APA compared the basic all-wheel drive versions of the 4 models under test, namely the Hyundai Tucson Essential all-wheel drive, the Mitsubishi Outlander ES S-AWC, the Nissan Rogue S AWD and the basic Ford Bronco Sport.
Purchase with financing over 84 months
For the following calculations, the APA has chosen a no-advance payment with a monthly payment, for a vehicle at the manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP) prior to negotiations.
Thanks to its lower purchase price, the Hyundai Tucson is the cheapest of the bunch, with a monthly payment of $ 490 at 2.99%. For 84 months, the Nissan Rogue will cost you $ 924 more (payments of $ 501 at 2.9% interest). The Mitsubishi Outlander charges $ 504 per month at a rate of 2.29%, with a total outlay of $ 1,176 more than the Tucson. Mitsubishi’s warranty, which will be extended after the payment term, more than compensates for the small additional cost compared to the Nissan Rogue. On the other hand, the Rogue’s expected resale value is the lowest of the quartet.
The most expensive is the Ford Bronco Sport at $ 541 per month at a rate of 3.99%, which is an additional cost of $ 4,284 down the road compared to the Tucson. It is difficult to predict whether the additional amount paid for the Bronco Sport will be reflected in its resale value. It all depends on how excited this newcomer is to the market, as well as its long-term reliability.
48 month rental
The monthly payments shown refer to an allotment of 20,000 km per year with no down payment. Prices are based on MSRP before negotiation.
When leasing, the Nissan Rogue has the lowest monthly payment, $ 451. The Hyundai Tucson, at $ 463 per month, will have cost you $ 576 more at the end of 48 months. The Mitsubishi Outlander, at $ 480, represents an additional $ 1,392 outlay over the Rogue. Keep in mind that when it is rented, the Outlander’s more attractive warranty compared to the Rogue does not have a significant advantage. The Ford Bronco Sport remains by far the most expensive at a monthly payment of $ 565, which is $ 5,472 more than the Rogue.
At the time of doing our research, we found an error on the Nissan Canada site that adds up to twice the freight and setup costs; we inform them of the problem. For readers using the calculator on the Nissan site, select only “Taxes” and not “Duties and Taxes” for prices including taxes. However, the $ 100 air conditioning excise tax and the $ 15 tire recycling fee are excluded from the calculations.
