Rogue vs CR-V: Performance

2018 Nissan Rogue Performance

The 2018 Nissan Rogue is standardly powered by a 2.5L 4-cylinder engine. Working alongside this engine is a standard front-wheel drivetrain, Xtronic CVT® (continuously variable transmission), and Eco/Sport Mode Shifter. The latter feature helps boost the fuel economy of the Rogue to an efficient EPA-estimated 33 highway/26 city MPG.1

The 2018 Honda CR-V also offers a standard front-wheel drivetrain and CVT. These features come paired with a smaller 2.4L 4-cylinder engine that lacks any similarity to the Rogue’s Eco/Sport Mode Shifter. As a result, you’ll only get an EPA-estimated 32 highway MPG in this model with this standard equipment.

Rogue vs CR-V: Safety

Safety is always a priority. The 2018 Nissan Rogue delivers a handful of active and passive safety features starting with Class-Exclusive standard Blind Spot Warning2 and Class-Exclusive standard Rear Cross Traffic Alert.3

These features use advanced exterior sensors and cameras to monitor your vehicle’s surroundings. When they detect another vehicle in your blind spots both when you’re moving forward and backward, they’ll warn you immediately so you have enough time to react and prevent a collision.

You’ll have access to these features in the 2018 Honda CR-V as well. However, they aren’t standard, so you’ll have to upgrade several trim levels in order to take advantage of these features in this model.
