2016 Honda CRV vs 2016 Nissan Rogue
One of the biggest vehicles of last year was the 2015 Honda CRV. While it wasn’t completely renovated or shifted to a new generation, it did receive a substantial-enough facelift to create the brilliant new compact crossover that’s taking over the segment. If you don’t want to take our word for incredible the CRV was, ask Motor Trend, who named it the 2015 Sport/Utility of the Year.
Fast forward a year, and we’ve got the newest version, the 2016 Honda CRV with all the bells and whistles plus that new car smell. We wanted to look at it in comparison to another popular compact crossover, one that was also recently revamped though in a bigger way, so we stacked up the 2016 Honda CRV vs 2016 Nissan Rogue.
Advantages of the 2016 Honda CRV
The Nissan Rogue, which just entered its second generation in 2014, can certainly hold its own against the Honda CRV, but in taking a look at the table above we think it’s pretty obvious which of the two crossovers takes the advantage. They may be equals in highway fuel efficiency, but the Honda CRV takes the cake in all three other categories that we looked at.
Starting from the top, a 15-horsepower nod isn’t substantial, but it is enough power to deliver a slightly more enjoyable driving experience. As for the capacities, while the numbers might not seem that big, in terms of space they’d be pretty noticeable. An extra 5.2 cu. ft. behind the third row could accommodate a whole extra suitcase or two, and an extra 5.4 cu. ft. of passenger volume gives you that much more space to stretch out and get comfortable, especially nice for your back seat passengers.
If you agree that the Honda CRV is the perfect compact crossover, then be sure to schedule a test drive either right here on the site or by giving us a call at the Wheaton Honda sales desk. We can’t wait to get you behind the wheel of the perfect new car for you.
