2020 Honda CR-V vs 2020 Nissan Rogue

Serving Groton, CT

The 2020 Honda CR-V is one of the most popular compact crossover SUVs today. This is because the Honda CR-V offers exceptional performance and handling, a modern interior, and a tech-centric cabin that brings you the latest in safety amenities and technology. The Honda CR-V is produced in several trims. Each CR-V trim offers something new and exciting, with a long list of amenities on each trim. The Honda CR-V has two rows of seats for a total seating capacity of five. With features such as split-folding rear seats, you know that the CR-V is ready to take you comfortably on any adventure. The Nissan Rogue has a dated interior when compared to the CR-V. Its interior design is more basic, and it has fewer high-quality materials overall.

Performance & Handling

The 2020 Honda CR-V offers a strong engine and reliable performance. The CR-V is powered by a turbo four-cylinder engine. The CR-V's engine creates nearly 190 horsepower, and it comes with 179 lb-ft of torque. The engine is paired with an automatic transmission. The standard drivetrain is front-wheel drive. Although, all-wheel drive is available. The Honda also comes in an electric hybrid version. The 2020 Nissan Rogue gets just one engine, which is a 2.5L four-cylinder that produces 170 horsepower and up to 175 lb-ft of torque. The smaller engine translates to a slower acceleration and less power than you'll get with the Honda CR-V, making the CR-V the better choice if you're looking for driving excitement.

Technology & Safety

The 2020 Honda CR-V is also a leader in the area of technology and safety. Standard on the CR-V for 2020 is a five-inch infotainment display screen, a four-speaker audio system, and automatic climate control. The Honda is also equipped with Honda's own Honda Sensing® package of advanced driver-assist safety aids. With the second trim, you'll get more luxuries including a sunroof, push-button start, heated front seats, and a larger seven-inch infotainment display screen with smartphone integration, Android Auto, and Apple CarPlay. Leather seats are standard on the top trims. The 2020 Nissan Rogue has a relatively dated infotainment display screen. It also has fewer standard driver-assist safety aids. Most safety features are not available until you reach the top trim. The Nissan Rogue also has fewer high-quality materials throughout its cabin.

Cargo Capacity

One of the reasons that the crossover SUV has become so popular is its versatility. The maximum cargo capacity of the CR-V is 75.8 cubic feet, whereas the Rogue can only go up 70 cubic feet. That extra 5.8 feet can make a difference when loading up to go camping or after a big grocery shopping trip. The CR-V also offers automatically folding seats to help make your life easier. This is not an available option for the 2020 Nissan Rogue.
