The CR-V EX/EX-L/Touring’s driver alert monitor detects an inattentive driver then sounds a warning and suggests a break. According to the NHTSA, drivers who fall asleep cause about 100,000 crashes and 1500 deaths a year. The Rogue doesn’t offer a driver alert monitor.

Both the CR-V and the Rogue have standard driver and passenger frontal airbags, front side-impact airbags, side-impact head airbags, front seatbelt pretensioners, front wheel drive, height adjustable front shoulder belts, four-wheel antilock brakes, traction control, electronic stability systems to prevent skidding, daytime running lights, rearview cameras, available all wheel drive, crash mitigating brakes, lane departure warning systems, blind spot warning systems and rear cross-path warning.

Reliability Comparison

J.D. Power and Associates’ 2016 survey of the owners of three-year-old vehicles provides the long-term dependability statistics that show that Honda vehicles are more reliable than Nissan vehicles. J.D. Power ranks Honda 7th in reliability, above the industry average. With 47 more problems per 100 vehicles, Nissan is ranked 27th.

The CR-V LX’s standard 2.4 DOHC 4 cyl. produces 14 more horsepower (184 vs. 170) and 5 lbs.-ft. more torque (180 vs. 175) than the Rogue’s standard 2.5 DOHC 4 cyl.

The CR-V has a standard cap-less fueling system. The fuel filler is automatically opened when the fuel nozzle is inserted and automatically closed when it’s removed. This eliminates the need to unscrew and replace the cap and it reduces fuel evaporation, which causes pollution. The Rogue doesn’t offer a cap-less fueling system.

Motor Trend

Tires and Wheels Comparison

For better traction, the CR-V has larger tires than the Rogue (235/65R17 vs. 225/65R17).

Suspension and Handling Comparison

The CR-V Touring AWD handles at .81 G’s, while the Rogue SL AWD pulls only .77 G’s of cornering force in a Motor Trend skidpad test.

The CR-V Touring AWD executes Motor Trend’s “Figure Eight” maneuver 1 seconds quicker than the Rogue SL AWD (27.9 seconds @ .6 average G’s vs. 28.9 seconds @ .58 average G’s).

Chassis Comparison

The CR-V is 3.9 inches shorter than the Rogue, making the CR-V easier to handle, maneuver and park in tight spaces.

The front grille of the CR-V uses electronically controlled shutters to close off airflow and reduce drag when less engine cooling is needed. This helps improve highway fuel economy. The Rogue doesn’t offer active grille shutters.

The CR-V uses computer-generated active noise cancellation to help remove annoying noise and vibration from the passenger compartment, especially at low frequencies. The Rogue doesn’t offer active noise cancellation.

Passenger Space Comparison

The CR-V has 1.1 inches more front hip room, 1.3 inches more front shoulder room, .7 inches more rear headroom and 2.5 inches more rear legroom than the Rogue.

Cargo Capacity Comparison

The CR-V has a much larger cargo area with its rear seat up than the Rogue 5-Passenger with its rear seat up (39.2 vs. 32 cubic feet). The CR-V has a much larger cargo area with its rear seat folded than the Rogue with all its rear seats folded (75.8 vs. 70 cubic feet).

Pressing a switch automatically lowers the CR-V’s rear seats, to make changing between passengers and cargo easier. The Rogue doesn’t offer automatic folding seats.

A standard locking glovebox (which can’t be accessed with the valet key) keeps your small valuables safer in the CR-V. The Rogue doesn’t offer locking storage for small valuables.

Ergonomics Comparison

To help each driver find a more comfortable driving position, the CR-V has a telescoping steering wheel. Much better than just a tilt steering wheel or adjustable seat, this allows a short driver to sit further from the steering wheel while maintaining contact with the pedals. The Rogue doesn’t offer a telescoping steering wheel.

The CR-V’s standard driver’s power window opens or closes fully with one touch of the switch, making it more convenient at drive-up windows and toll booths. The Rogue’s standard driver’s power window switch has to be held the entire time to open or close it. The CR-V EX/EX-L/Touring’s front power windows open fully with one touch of the switches, and its driver’s window also automatically closes. With the Rogue SV/SL’s power windows, only the driver’s window opens or closes automatically.

The CR-V Touring’s standard wipers adjust their speed and turn on and off automatically according to the amount of rainfall on the windshield. The Rogue’s manually variable intermittent wipers have to be constantly adjusted.

Recommendations Comparison

The Honda CR-V outsold the Nissan Rogue by 11% during the 2016 model year.
