Compare to Honda CR-V

Here are some conclusions I gathered when comparing the Nissan Rogue to the Honda CR-V:

  • Honda is a little more expensive than the Rogue
  •  AM/FM is the only stereo option on the CR-V & the CR-V has no CD player
  • Your second row passengers have a little more options when it comes to comfortability in a Rogue (see image)

  • The moonroof in the Rogue is not standard on higher trims, but it is panoramic & gives you the option to not have one rather than paying for a more expensive vehicle when you don’t need that feature
  • The MPG is pretty equal between the two
  • Both have the same warranty
  • Rogue seems to be a little more family friendly in that it offers a 3rd row
  • The CR-V may have a little more tech options
  • The Rogue is a little more stylish

Well, those are the main takeaways I received when doing my research on these two small SUVs! If you have any questions about the two, let us know. One of our Nissan product specialists will be happy to help. You can also check out our Rogue inventory here!
