2020 Honda CR-V vs 2020 Nissan Rogue

Serving Groton, CT

The compact crossover SUV market is a crowded one. This type of vehicle seems to be perfect for a wide variety of drivers due to the way they blend practicality and an engaging drive. Two of the options that are discussed quite a bit are the Honda CR-V and the Nissan Rogue. Both of these have many positive qualities. Since you likely can only choose one, the team here at Cardinal Honda would like to tell you about a few of the ways that the CR-V outshines the Nissan Rogue.


Both the Honda CR-V and Nissan Rogue have a single-engine option for 2020. The Nissan Rogue's is a 2.5L four-cylinder that will generate 170-horsepower and 175 lb-ft of torque. On the other hand, the Honda CR-V has a turbocharged 1.5L four-cylinder that produces 190-horsepower and 179 lb-ft of torque. That extra 20-horsepower can make a big difference when it comes to your driving experience. The CR-V can go from zero to 60 in just 7.5 seconds, compared to the 9.5 seconds that it takes the Rogue.

Fuel Economy

You may be thinking that the Rogue is more fuel-efficient since it is not as powerful, but this is not the case. Rogue models with front-wheel-drive get 26 mpg in the city and 33 mpg on the highway, compared to the CR-V's 28 mpg city and 34 mpg highway. * Both vehicles are also available with all-wheel-drive. CR-V models once again win here, getting 27 mpg city and 32 mpg highway. The Rogue AWD gets 25 mpg and 32 mpg highway.

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.
