2013 Honda CR-V vs Nissan Rogue
As your Denver-area Honda dealership, we at Fisher Honda are dedicated to providing drivers with a great selection of new and used Honda vehicles like the all-new 2013 Honda CR-V. The new CR-V delivers great performance in an aggressive sleek exterior to drivers everywhere, easily putting it at the top of its class even against contenders like the Nissan Rogue. Let’s see how they stack up against each other.
Honda Gives Drivers What They Want
The Nissan Rogue has a lightweight 2.5L engine that gets 170 hp and 28 mpg on the highway, which pales in comparison to the 2.4L Honda engine, producing 185 hp and EPA-estimated 31 mpg on the highway.*
And while the Nissan Rogue has various safety features, Honda has a reputation for creating some of the safest vehicles on the market. The CR-V includes:
- Advanced Compatibility Engineering body structure
- Vehicle Stability Assist with Motion-Adaptive Electric Power Steering
- Anti-Lock Braking System
- Electronic Brake Distribution
Beyond this, though, the Honda has received perfect ratings from the NHTSA, earning five stars for front passenger crash testing, overall frontal crash safety, side pole crash safety, and even a five-star overall rating. The Nissan received only a four-star overall safety rating, with only three stars in front passenger crash ratings.
While both vehicles allow you to carry up to 5 passengers, you will have trouble finding room for all of them in the Nissan, featuring only 97.5 cubic feet of passenger space, while the Honda has 104.1 cubic feet, giving everyone room to stretch out and get comfortable.
With the 2WD CR-V LX, you’ll also get tailgate power locks, a rearview camera, a telescopic steering wheel, and floor mats as standard features. In the Rogue, you’ll have to pay for the camera and floor mats, and the locks and telescoping steering wheel are flat-out not available.
