What are you looking for in your next SUV? Perhaps versatility, space, and power? If so, the Nissan Rogue and Honda CR-V will present as two great choices available to you. Both of these vehicles impress on the Westborough, Northborough, and North Grafton, MA, streets.
Which one of these is the better fit for you? Our team at Route 9 Nissan will look to help you make that determination in this Nissan Rogue vs. Honda CR-V comparison.
The first area you’ll want to evaluate on these two SUVs are their powertrains. Here, these two compare similarly but there are some key differences. The CR-V comes with a 1.5L 4-cylinder engine, while the Rogue is stocked with a 2.5L 4-cylinder engine.
As the Rogue features an engine with more displacement, it is also able to provide more torque to you behind the wheel. The Rogue pumps out 181 lb-ft of torque, while the CR-V produces 179 lb-ft of torque. While this difference may seem slight, it will prove important in your ability to accelerate and pick up speed.
In terms of efficiency, these two again compare very closely thanks to the Continuously Variable Transmissions (CVT) found within both powertrains. The Rogue will prove a little more efficient on the highways, though, earning an EPA-estimated 27 city/35 highway MPG.1 The CR-V earns slightly less with an EPA-estimated 28 city/34 highway MPG.
Inside the cabins of both the Rogue and CR-V, you’ll have the ability to seat up to five passengers. Both will also arm you with plenty of cargo room, allowing you to easily transport your bags, gear, and more.
Aside from great space, these two also come with impressive multimedia features. Behind the wheel of both SUVs, you’ll have the ability to remain constantly connected on the go thanks to standard Bluetooth(R) functionality. Additionally, both offer available Apple CarPlay(R). Aside from these, though, these two multimedia systems will differ.
While the Rogue comes standard with Android AutoTM, the CR-V does not. If you want to have this functionality on the Honda SUV, you’ll need to upgrade to a higher trim. The Rogue also comes with a standard Hands-free Text Messaging Assistant. Using this, you’ll be able to safely and effectively send texts while on the go.
There’s also an important difference when it comes to the user interface of these two respective multimedia systems. The Honda’s base system comes with a 5-inch display. Meanwhile, the Rogue’s standard NissanConnect(R) comes with an 8-inch display. This will make it much easier to interact and use your multimedia functionalities.
