Nissan Rogue vs. Honda CR-V
The 2017 Nissan Rogue and the Honda CR-V are both popular SUVs, offering a number of attractive features. When it’s time to purchase a new vehicle, though, you can choose only one. Which of these SUVs is right for you and your family?
2017 Nissan Rogue: Features and Specs
The Nissan Rogue is rare among SUVs. It is one of only two SUVs that offers an available third row, yet its compact size gives it the maneuverability that you normally only get from a compact SUV. According to U.S. News, the 2017 model is “one of the least expensive 3-row SUVs on the market and packed with value.”
Here are just a few of the specs and features that make this one of the industry’s leading SUVs:
- 26/33 City/Highway MPG
- Seating for 5
- 3-Year / 36,000-Mile Warranty
- Ample Cargo Space with 18 Cargo Configurations
In addition to these standard features, the 2017 Nissan Rogue comes with the latest technology, conveniences, and safety features:
- Remote Keyless Power Door Locks
- Infotainment Interface with Smartphone Integration
- Rearview Camera and Rollover Sensor
- Available Blind Spot Monitoring and Rear Cross Traffic Alert
And, that’s just for starters! If you want an SUV that is versatile, spacious, and light on its feet, the Nissan Rogue is for you.
2017 Honda CR-V: Features and Specs
The 2017 Honda CR-V continues as one of Honda’s more popular SUVs. In 2015, Honda refreshed the SUV’s exterior design, which impressed many but left others disappointed. The 2017 CR-V continues its modernized design tradition.
Though the CR-V is unarguably a quality vehicle, there are a few things to consider:
- Motor Trends independently tested the 2017 CR-V and found that its city gas mileage was “disappointing.” While the reported gas mileage was 25-28, Motor Trends’ analysis revealed a real-world gas mileage of 21.9 city MPG.
- This year’s model presents many of the same features as other competitors, though to access many of them you will need to upgrade your trim.
- Honda’s price tag, more than $24,000, puts it above the Nissan Rogue and towards the upper end of the spectrum compared to other SUVs. Given the results of Motor Trends’ gas mileage tests, it may be worth shopping for an SUV that can deliver a better value for your gas dollar.
Conclusion: Test Drive the Nissan Rogue Today
The 2017 Nissan Rogue and Honda CR-V are very similar across the board. However, given the CR-V’s higher price tag, higher city MPG, and its limited selection of features for lower trims, bear in mind that you’ll be forking out more money for the same features that you’ll find elsewhere.
Whether you’re looking at features or gas money, the Nissan Rogue gives you the best bang for your buck.
