2016 Nissan Rogue vs 2016 Honda CR-V

Serving Fort Worth, Cleburne and Arlington, TX

Two of the more popular compact SUVs for 2016 are the Nissan Rogue and the Honda CR-V. These vehicles share a lot of qualities. They both are reliable, offer good fuel economy, peppy performance and excellent resale value. However, there are certain important differences between the two that make it easier to choose between them. For example, only the Rogue offers an optional third-row seat. If you take a test drive of both cars, we think you'll agree with us that the Nissan Rogue beats the competition.


Take a side-by-side look at the 2016 Nissan Rogue and the 2016 Honda CR-V, and you'll quickly notice a vast difference in styling. The Rogue is a real eye-catcher that will appeal to the young and the young at heart. It's available in bold colors and with a number of dealer-installed accessories, such as a tent that fits on the open rear liftgate or external puddle lighting. The Rogue's bright metal trim, V-shaped grille and premium taillights contribute to its allure, and its aerodynamic shape improves fuel economy. By contrast, the Honda CR-V has an undistinguished shape that seems to mirror other SUVs in the segment. Nothing wrong with it, but no feeling of excitement or fun.


The 2016 Rogue is larger and more spacious than the CR-V. Rogue is 2.9 inches longer, 0.8 inches wider and has a wheelbase that is 3.4 inches longer. Occupants will prefer traveling in the Rogue due to the extra front headroom, front legroom and total passenger volume. The Nissan Rogue SL comes with P225/60R18 wheels, larger than the P225/65R17's found on the Honda CR-V EX-L.


As we mentioned above, the 2016 Nissan Rogue is available with a third row, and important plus if you have a big family. The Honda CR-V has only two rows. There are other standard and optional features that favor the Nissan Rogue SL over the Honda CR-V EX-L. The Nissan's cabin is upscale, constructed with soft-touch surfaces, quality materials and attractive illumination. Rogue's “Zero Gravity” leather-clad front seats are more comfortable and supportive, as you would expect from a NASA-inspired seat. Second row passengers can stay cool and comfortable thanks to their own rear air conditioning in the Rogue, but not available in the CR-V. The Rogue SL comes with a premium radio, but alas, the CR-V does not. Also on the Rogue SL are Siri Eyes Free, blind-spot monitoring, lane departure warning, moving object detection, LED headlights and a power liftgate. You would have to buy the more expensive CR-V Touring to get only some of these features.
