Rogue vs CR-V: Capable Compact SUVs

Nissan Rogue

As similarly matched compact SUVs, the Nissan Rogue and Honda CR-V do have plenty in common. You’ll find four doors, five seats, and over 70 cubic feet of cargo space-that’s plenty of room for luggage, gear for a weekend trip, and yes, the groceries, too. Split-folding second-row seats allow you to maximize that cargo space or leave the seats in place when there are multiple passengers.

The Rogue and CR-V also have similar configurations should you choose to lift up the hood. The standard 2.5L 4-cylinder in the Rogue is similar to the CR-V, which comes with a slightly smaller 2.4L 4-cylinder engine.

The slightly larger engine found in the Rogue may not seem like a big deal, but it certainly is. After all, you get a bit more in the fuel efficiency department, as the Rogue receives an EPA-estimated 26 MPG city/33 MPG highway.1 The CR-V gets an EPA-estimated 25 MPG city/33 MPG highway.

Safety Features

Both cars have a lot to offer in terms of safety. In fact, there are safety features in common, such as advanced lane departure systems. These systems monitor your movements on the road and warn you when you may be drifting from the lane you’re in.

There are several features found in the Nissan Rogue and Honda CR-V, which come in handy. Standard on the SV trim and above of the Rogue, you’ll find Automatic Emergency Braking, Rear Automatic Braking, and Blind Spot Warning. With the CR-V, the available Honda Sensing® package comes with braking technology, lane keeping functionality, and adaptive cruise control.

Nissan vs Honda Infotainment

Nissan RogueBoth the Rogue and CR-V come standard with an infotainment system and display screen. The standard option in the Rogue is a large 7-inch touchscreen. This system is equipped with a number of features geared towards convenience, with hands-free text messaging, Bluetooth® audio streaming, and Siri® Eyes Free.

The latter feature allows those with an iPhone® to extend Siri® voice command capabilities to the Rogue. When connected, the feature lets you make phone calls, play music, and access maps.

If you want a 7-inch touchscreen in the CR-V, you’ll need to upgrade to a higher trim level. The 5-inch LCD screen in the base trim still provides entertainment features like Bluetooth® and USB connectivity, but the larger screen and more intuitive setup comes in the Rogue.
