2019 CR-V vs 2019 Rogue Performance Specs

Both the 2019 Honda CR-V and 2019 Nissan Rogue are great everyday vehicles since they each offer a comfortable ride quality and composed handling. However, you get more power inside the Honda model.

The CR-V comes standard with a 2.4L 4-cylinder engine that delivers 184 horsepower and 180 lb-ft of torque. Then there’s the available 1.5L 4-cylinder engine with Turbocharger that produces 190 horsepower and 179 lb-ft of torque. No matter what, you get quick acceleration on all your commutes.

Unfortunately, the Rogue has just one engine option: a 2.5L 4-cylinder. That one, then, delivers just 170 horsepower and 175 lb-ft of torque.

The CR-V also comes out on top when it comes to fuel efficiency. It achieves up to an EPA-estimated 28 city/34 highway MPG in its EX, EX-L, and Touring trims.* As a result, you could take a few trips to the beach before running low on fuel.

Meanwhile, the Rogue achieves an EPA-estimated 26 city/33 highway MPG in its non-hybrid model. Therefore, you may need to take more trips to the gas station in this automobile.

Honda CR-V vs Nissan Rogue Interior Space

The 2019 CR-V and 2019 Rogue each seat five people and offer lots of room for yourself and your friends or family.

This is especially the case in the back of the Honda, where it has 39.2 inches of rear headroom and 40.4 inches of rear legroom.

In comparison, the Nissan offers 38.5 inches of rear headroom and 37.9 inches of rear legroom. As a result, your taller riders may feel a bit more cramped in the back of this SUV.

Whether you’re taking your kids to sports practice or planning a day of shopping at the Tanger Outlets, it’s nice to have a vehicle that can store all your cargo. While both SUVs have plenty of space, it’s even more so inside the Honda.

This vehicle has 39.2 cubic feet of cargo room behind the rear seats. Fold that back row down, and you’re looking at 75.8 cubic feet to utilize. In the Nissan, meanwhile, the maximum cargo capacity is just 70 cubic feet.

CR-V vs Rogue Design & Features

Honda CRV

The Honda CR-V has a sleek design that features an Active Shutter Grille that brings a bold look and improved aerodynamics to the front of the CR-V. Its wide stance is then accentuated by its dual chrome exhaust finishers.

Inside, the CR-V offers a more luxurious kind of family SUV from the moment you open the door. An illuminated door sill trim greets you before you step in to find available leather-trimmed seats and steering wheel. Plus, a 12-way power-adjustable driver’s seat is available, so you can quickly get comfortable behind the wheel.

In the CR-V, a useful feature that’s available on the Driver Information Interface is a Driver Attention Monitor. It monitors your driving patterns and sends you alerts when it senses drowsy driving.

Unfortunately, the Nissan Rogue doesn’t offer these kinds of design or features. It doesn’t have the stylish benefits of subtle design features, such as dual chrome exhaust finishers or an illuminated door sill trim. Plus, the highest trim level has an 8-way power-adjustable driver’s seat, so you may not feel as comfy inside.

2019 Honda CR-V vs 2019 Nissan Rogue: Verdict

The 2019 Nissan Rogue is certainly an impressive SUV. However, it’s the 2019 Honda CR-V that offers more power, efficiency, space, and features.
