Nissan Rogue Sport vs Honda CR-V
When it comes to crossover SUVs, Nissan makes some phenomenal models to offer the very best around in terms of performance, fuel economy, and passenger space. Of course, take one look around the Pawtucket, Cranston, and East Providence roadways and you’ll see hundreds of crossovers around, so it’s only natural that just about every driver has their favorite.
Honda is one manufacturer that’s made efforts to compete for the top-dog spot, and its CR-V SUV is respected as a great entry. Does it have the chops, however, to live up to the Nissan Rogue? Let’s compare the Nissan Rogue Sport to the Honda CR-V and discover which one is the king of the Rhode Island roadways!
Nissan Rogue Sport vs Honda CR-V: Specs
When it comes to performance, the Rogue Sport is a standout vehicle. In fact, with a 14.5-gallon fuel tank and an EPA-estimated 32 MPG1on the highway, it can get you where you need to go without you having to worry about constantly stopping for gas. On the other hand, the CR-V’s fuel tank is slightly reduced to 14 gallons; while still respectable, this will likely result in having to stop for gas a tad more frequently.
Rogue Sport vs Honda CR-V: Interior Volume
The Rogue and CR-V are very similar in terms of passenger and cargo space, especially with the room you’ll find behind the back seats. Behind the back rows, you’ll have 39.3 cubic feet of cargo room in the Rogue and 39.2 cubic feet in the CR-V respectively.
The clear distinction can be made, however, in passenger volume. The Rogue maintains its total passenger space of 105.8 cubic feet across all of its various trim levels. In the CR-V, if you want maximum passenger room, you’ll need to sit at the base-level trim—upgrading to more luxurious features and technology means sacrificing passenger space down to 102.9 cubic feet, and then down to 101.6 cubic feet at the highest trim level.
Rogue Sport vs Honda CR-V: Infotainment Systems
While the new CR-V has a solid infotainment system, it doesn’t function with the same smooth, intuitive feel that Nissan’s does. Nissan includes dials and a touchscreen, giving you a choice of how to navigate menus. Additionally, the Rogue’s infotainment system comes with a full selection of features including Bluetooth®, USB ports, smartphone integration via Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay™, a CD player, Siri®Eyes Free voice commands, satellite radio, and AM/FM radio. The best part? All of this is included beginning right at the base level.
The base level of the CR-V does not give you satellite radio, nor a CD player or smartphone integration. In fact, some of the only features you get at the base level of the Honda CR-V are Bluetooth® connectivity and USB ports, and don’t even think about counting on a touchscreen—it’s not standard. If you want to add on other infotainment features, you’re going to have to kick it up a notch and pay extra, whereas in the Rogue, you’ll get them standard right from the start.
