Although it just went through a facelift for the 2015 model year, one that was impressive enough to earn it a Motor Trend award, Honda continues to enhance and perfect its popular compact crossover each year. For this model year, Honda has introduced an all-new CR-V as it enters its fifth generation, so we thought we’d see how the newest model measures up to one of its biggest competitors. When it comes to crossovers, few manufacturers have built up a reputation as quickly as Nissan, which is why we thought we’d compare the 2017 Honda CR-V vs 2017 Nissan Rogue.
Advantages of the 2017 Honda CR-V
The table up above gives you a good glance at just how these two compact crossovers compare to one another. We thought the best way to give you the rundown would be to just move right through the table, analyzing each of these important specifications to figure out the advantages of each. But unfortunately for the Rogue, in terms of power and space the CR-V is simply superior. You can see the advantages of the CR-V right away in the first row, as it offers 14 horsepower more than the Rogue. While 14 HP might not be a game-changing advantage, it still gives the CR-V a leg up in terms of enjoyability behind the wheel.
However, the important advantages kick in in the second row, where we start to look at space. For starters, behind the back seat of the CR-V rests a nice 39.2 cubic feet of space to fill with whatever you might need, which happens to be 7.2 cu. ft. more than the Rogue offers. As per usual, dropping the back seat opens up even more space – 75.8 cu. ft. in the Honda CR-V. While the advantage is not quite as steep in this regard, the Rogue is still short 5.8 cu. ft. of space. Furthermore, the Rogue’s cabin is 11.1 cu. ft. less spacious than the CR-V’s, which means you and your passengers will have much more room to stretch out and get comfortable in a Honda.
