Honda CR-V

The Honda CR-V and the Nissan Rogue are great everyday vehicles since they each offer a comfortable ride and composed handling. When it comes to performance, you’ll want to have the vehicle that fits your needs best.

Engine Performance

The Honda CR-V and the Nissan Rogue are very similar in terms of power output. The CR-V comes standard with a 1.5L 4-cylinder turbocharged engine, while the Nissan Rogue has a 1.5L 3-cylinder engine.

Both models generate more than 180 horsepower, giving drivers a sporty, peppy vehicle ready to take on the day.

Fuel-Efficient Performance

The CR-V comes out on top when considering fuel efficiency. The Honda CR-V achieves up to an EPA-estimated 28 city/34 highway MPG on all 2-wheel drive (2WD) trims.* The Nissan Rogue has very similar ratings on its 2WD models.

However, only the CR-V comes available with a hybrid powertrain, which will help you save some fuel.

Honda CR-V

It’s time to sit back and relax. Both the Honda CR-V and the Nissan Rogue provide ample space in their cabins for you and your passengers. From legroom to cargo room, you’ll easily be able to stretch out, but which one has the most space?

Room for Your Passengers

The CR-V and the Rogue both seat five people and offer lots of room for you and your friends or family. This is especially the case in the back of the Honda, where it has 41 inches of rear legroom.

In comparison, the Nissan offers just 38.5 inches of rear legroom. As a result, taller riders may feel a bit more cramped in the back of this SUV.

Ample Space for Your Necessities

Whether you’re taking your kids to practice or planning a day of shopping at the outlets, it’s helpful to have a vehicle that can store all your cargo. While both SUVs have plenty of space, you’ll have more room in the CR-V.

This vehicle has 39.3 cubic feet of cargo room behind the rear seats. Fold down the second row of seats and you’re looking at 76.5 cubic feet to store your goodies. In the Nissan, you’ll have 36.5 cubic feet with the seat upright and a maximum cargo capacity of just 74.1 cubic feet with the seats folded flat.

Honda CR-V

From the interior design to the exterior, these SUVs are made to impress. If you want to turn heads on the road and wow your passengers with an elegant interior, which one of these SUVs should you get? Let’s take a look.

Premium Design and Features

The Honda CR-V has a sleek design that features an active shutter grille that brings a bold look and improved aerodynamics to the CR-V. Its wide stance is then accentuated by its Full LED Headlights.

Unfortunately, the Nissan Rogue doesn’t offer the same design features. It doesn’t have the stylish benefits of the active shutter grille.

Interior Cabin Design

Inside, the CR-V offers a more luxurious kind of family SUV from the moment you open the door. When you step in, you’ll be greeted by optional leather-trimmed seats and steering wheel. Plus, a 10-way power-adjustable driver’s seat is available, so you can quickly get comfortable behind the wheel.

While you can opt for leather-appointed seats in the Rogue, this SUV only equips an 8-way power-adjustable driver’s seat.

The Verdict
Honda CR-V

The Nissan Rogue is certainly an impressive SUV. However, it’s the Honda CR-V that offers more efficiency, space, and luxury features.

If this comparison has helped you narrow down the best SUV for getting your family around Indio, La Quinta, Cathedral City, Coachella, or Palm Springs, CA, then come to Unicars Honda to set up a test drive.
