2012 Honda CR-V LX vs. 2013 Nissan Rogue S

2012 Honda CR-V The 2012 Honda CR-V is a hit with Denver drivers, and it’s easy to see why. This crossover vehicle has earned a lot of fans thanks to its impressive interior dimensions, excellent fuel economy, wealth of features and options, and tight handling. You can, of course, try it out when you come to Fisher Honda. That said, we understand that it’s common for drivers to survey their options when seeking their next vehicle, and there are a lot of crossovers on the market. One of the CR-V’s biggest competitors is the 2013 Nissan Rogue — so how do the two models stack up?

The 2012 CR-V is a Top Pick

The 2013 Nissan Rogue rightly has a few fans, but we think that Denver drivers will agree when we say that the 2012 Honda CR-V has it beat. Here are just a few of the things that give Honda’s compact crossover the edge:

  • The first thing that you’re liable to notice is the price: the new CR-V comes with a base MSRP of $22,495,* over $2,000 less than the new Rogue, which goes for $24,525.
  • The savings continue when you’re at the gas pump. When you drive 2WD models of the 2012 CR-V, you’ll be behind the wheel of a crossover that will get you 31 mpg highway,** while the 2013 Rogue comes in at 28 mpg highway. In short, Honda’s crossover could save you a great deal of money over the long haul.
  • This edge doesn’t come at the expense of power, either, as the CR-V will give you 185 hp and a maximum towing capacity of 1,500 pounds. The Rogue will only give you 170 hp and a maximum towing capacity of 1,000 pounds.
  • You want a safe vehicle, right? In tests by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the 2012 CR-V earned five stars (compared to the Nissan’s three) in front passenger crash tests, a five-star rating (compared to four) in frontal crash safety, and a five-star (compared to four) overall safety rating.
