Read ahead to see how these two capable vehicles stack up against each other!

Rogue vs CR-V: Performance

In the 2018 Nissan Rogue, you’ll have a 2.5L 4-cylinder engine, front-wheel drivetrain, and Xtronic CVT® (Continuously Variable Transmission) leading the way. This trio comes standardly paired with an Eco/Sport Mode Shifter, which gives the Rogue its impressive EPA-estimated 33 highway/26 city MPG1. The 2018 Honda CR-V, on the other hand, is standardly powered by a 2.4L 4-cylinder engine. You’ll still have a CVT as well as a front-wheel drivetrain with this model, but the CR-V misses out on a few of the Rogue’s features including the Eco Mode Shifter. As a result, this model gets a bit less per gallon with an EPA-estimated 32 highway MPG.

Rogue vs CR-V: Technology

When it comes to technology, the Nissan Rogue and the Honda CR-V both deliver with standard infotainment systems. These systems bundle a helpful screen as well as hands-free phone calling and wireless audio streaming via standard Bluetooth® connectability. When you go with the Rogue, though, you’ll have quite a bit more to be excited about in terms of standard luxury. This model gives you a 7-inch touchscreen and smartphone integration via Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay™. Right from the large standard screen, you’ll be able to stay connected and safely access all of your favorite apps. Unfortunately, the CR-V only offers a 5-inch screen in its base trim and this screen does not offer touchscreen capabilities. You’ll have to upgrade for a comparable screen as well as smartphone integration because this does not come standard either.

Rogue vs CR-V: Safety

No matter where you’re heading in your crossover, safety is always a priority. That’s why the 2018 Nissan Rogue goes above and beyond to give you a variety of Class-Exclusive standard active safety features. With the Rogue, features like Blind Spot Warning and Rear Cross Traffic Alert will have your back by acting like a second set of eyes on the road. The sensors included in this system will monitor your surroundings and let you know when there’s a vehicle near you that you may not see. To access these smart features in the 2018 Honda CR-V, you’ll have to upgrade a few trim levels from the base.

2018 Nissan Rogue vs 2018 Honda CR-V: Which One?

While the 2018 Honda CR-V offers a few great features, it’s obvious that the 2018 Nissan Rogue takes the cake in every category. Now that you’ve had a taste of what this crossover can do, it’s time to get behind the wheel and get the full experience for yourself.
