Safety Comparison

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 Sport doesn’t offer a driver alert monitor.

Both the CR-V and the Rogue Sport 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.

For its top level performance in all IIHS frontal, side, rear impact and roof-crush tests, with its optional front crash prevention system, and its available headlight’s “Acceptable” rating, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety grants the CR-V the rating of “Top Pick” for 2018, a rating granted to only 87 vehicles tested by the IIHS. The Rogue Sport has not been tested, yet.

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.

From surveys of all its subscribers, Consumer Reports’ April 2017 Auto Issue reports that Honda vehicles are more reliable than Nissan vehicles. Consumer Reports ranks Honda 3 places higher in reliability than Nissan.

Engine Comparison

The CR-V LX’s standard 2.4 DOHC 4 cyl. produces 43 more horsepower (184 vs. 141) and 33 lbs.-ft. more torque (180 vs. 147) than the Rogue Sport’s 2.0 DOHC 4 cyl. The CR-V EX/EX-L/Touring’s standard 1.5 turbo 4 cyl. produces 49 more horsepower (190 vs. 141) and 32 lbs.-ft. more torque (179 vs. 147) than the Rogue Sport’s 2.0 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 Sport doesn’t offer a cap-less fueling system.

Tires and Wheels Comparison

For better traction, the CR-V has larger tires than the Rogue Sport (235/65R17 vs. 215/65R16). The CR-V LX’s tires are larger than the largest tires available on the Rogue Sport (235/65R17 vs. 225/45R19).

For better ride, handling and brake cooling the CR-V LX has standard 17-inch wheels. Smaller 16-inch wheels are standard on the Rogue Sport S.

Suspension and Handling Comparison

For better handling and stability, the average track (width between the wheels) on the CR-V is .6 inches wider in the front and 1.4 inches wider in the rear than the track on the Rogue Sport.

For greater off-road capability the CR-V has a greater minimum ground clearance than the Rogue Sport (8.2 vs. 7.4 inches), allowing the CR-V to travel over rougher terrain without being stopped or damaged.

Chassis Comparison

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 Sport 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 Sport doesn’t offer active noise cancellation.

Passenger Space Comparison

The CR-V has 9.9 cubic feet more passenger volume than the Rogue Sport (105.9 vs. 96).

The CR-V has .5 inches more front headroom, 1.7 inches more front hip room, 1.3 inches more front shoulder room, .9 inches more rear headroom, 7 inches more rear legroom and 2.6 inches more rear hip room than the Rogue Sport.

Cargo Capacity Comparison

The CR-V has a much larger cargo area with its rear seat up than the Rogue Sport with its rear seat up (39.2 vs. 22.9 cubic feet). The CR-V has a much larger cargo area with its rear seat folded than the Rogue Sport with its rear seat folded (75.8 vs. 61.1 cubic feet).

Pressing a switch automatically lowers the CR-V’s rear seats, to make changing between passengers and cargo easier. The Rogue Sport 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 Sport doesn’t offer locking storage for small valuables.

To make loading and unloading groceries and cargo easier, especially for short adults, the CR-V EX-L/Touring has a standard power cargo door, which opens and closes automatically by pressing a button, or on the CR-V Touring, by just kicking your foot under the back bumper, completely leaving your hands free. The Rogue Sport doesn’t offer a power cargo door.

Ergonomics Comparison

When two different drivers share the CR-V EX-L/Touring, the memory seats make it convenient for both. Each setting activates different, customized memories for the driver’s seat position. The Rogue Sport doesn’t offer memory seats.

The CR-V EX/EX-L/Touring’s front power windows open fully with one touch of the switches, and the driver’s window also automatically closes, making it more convenient at drive-up windows and toll booths, or when talking with someone outside the car. The Rogue Sport’s passenger windows don’t open or close automatically.

If the windows are left down on the CR-V the driver can raise them all using the key in the outside lock cylinder; on a hot day the driver can lower the windows. The driver of the Rogue Sport can only operate the windows from inside the vehicle, with the ignition on.

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 Sport’s intermittent wipers change speed with vehicle speed, but can’t turn on and off or change speed based on changing rainfall.

The CR-V EX-L/Touring’s standard rear view mirror has an automatic dimming feature. This mirror can be set to automatically darken quickly when headlights shine on it, keeping following vehicles from blinding or distracting the driver. The Rogue Sport doesn’t offer the luxury of an automatic dimming rear view mirror.

Recommendations Comparison

Consumer Reports® recommends the Honda CR-V, based on reliability, safety and performance.

J.D. Power and Associates rated the CR-V first among compact SUVs in owner reported satisfaction. This includes how well the vehicle performs and satisfies its owner’s expectations. The Rogue Sport isn’t in the top three.

The Honda CR-V outsold the Nissan Rogue by 8% during 2016.
