Comparing the 2016 Nissan Rogue and 2016 Honda CR-V

The 2016 Nissan Rogue may have a slightly lower horsepower rating than the 2016 Honda CR-V, but it makes up for that in its versatility, features, and value. The Rogue not only has more passenger space than the CR-V, but it also has a little more cargo room behind the 2nd row; there is 39.3 cubic feet of space behind the 2nd row of the Rogue, but only 37.2 cubic feet of space behind the 2nd row of the CR-V. The 2016 Rogue also has the option to add a 3rd row of seating, which increases the capacity from 5 to 7 passengers. The 2016 CR-V, on the other hand, does not have this option.

Value is another area where the Nissan Rogue really pulls ahead of the Honda CR-V. Though the 2016 Rogue is a couple hundred dollars less than the 2016 CR-V to start, it still offers quite a few features that aren't found in Honda's compact SUV. The Divide-n-Hide Cargo System, Zero Gravity front seats, EZ Flex Seating System, Advanced Drive-Assist Display, and LED headlights are all available for the 2016 Nissan Rogue, but there isn't really anything comparable to these features in the 2016 Honda CR-V.

When it comes down to it, the Nissan Rogue has a little bit of an edge over the Honda CR-V since it ultimately offers more value and versatility, which are important if you're searching for an SUV.
