Nissan Rogue vs Honda CR-V

If you’re on the hunt for a crossover SUV that’s powerful, spacious, and safe, then you’re in the right place. Shoppers in the areas of Richardson, Garland, Addison, and Plano have two such vehicles to choose from: the 2020 Nissan Rogue vs. the 2020 Honda CR-V.

However, with so much to enjoy about both models, how will you choose? We at Courtesy Nissan have put together this detailed comparison to help you do just that. Read ahead to learn more!

Rogue vs CR-V: Performance

The 2020 Nissan Rogue is powered by a 2.5L 4-cylinder. This engine works alongside a standard front-wheel drivetrain and an Xtronic® CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) with Sport Mode Shifter. This Eco/Sport Mode Shifter helps you get the perfect balance of power and efficiency—thanks to this feature, the Rogue achieves an EPA-estimated 26 city/33 highway MPG.1

The 2020 Honda CR-V, on the other hand, is led by a slightly smaller 2.4L 4-cylinder engine that also pairs with a standard front-wheel drive system and CVT. Unfortunately, this powertrain trio lacks a feature like the Rogue’s Eco/Sport Shifter. As a result, your fuel economy will suffer a bit.

Rogue vs CR-V: Interior Comfort

Inside the 2020 Nissan Rogue, you’ll find plenty of space for both your passengers and your cargo. This model provides a whopping 43 inches of front legroom and 41.6 inches of best-in-class front headroom. Additionally, rear passengers will have 52.1 spacious inches of hip room.

The Rogue also offers an EZ Flex® Seating System, which will allow you to utilize every inch of your interior space. Use this system to recline, slide, and tilt the rear seats.

As for the 2020 Honda CR-V, you’ll not only miss out on the capabilities of the EZ Flex® Seating System, but you also won’t have quite as much space for your passengers. This model sports just 41.3 inches of front legroom, 40.1 inches of front headroom, and 49.5 inches of rear hip room. This will make for a tight squeeze in all five seats, especially the three rear ones.

Rogue vs CR-V: Advanced Safety

Safety is always a top priority. That’s why the 2020 Nissan Rogue is equipped with a wide variety of safety features to help you stay confident on the road, no matter where you’re heading. This model is standardly equipped with a Blind Spot Warning System and Rear Cross Traffic Alert.

These features, which do not come standard on the 2020 Honda CR-V, help you avoid collisions by warning you when there’s a vehicle in your blind spots. Moving forward or backing up, you can count on these features to keep you in the loop.

Another feature that you’ll miss out on altogether with the CR-V is the Rogue’s Intelligent Around View® Monitor. This camera gives you a 360-degree bird’s-eye view of your vehicle’s surroundings right on the infotainment screen.
