Nissan Rogue vs Honda CR-V

So, you want to go on an adventure? Whether you’re hopping around the corner to Folly Beach or Francis Marion National Forest, or you’re exploring a galaxy far, far away, you’ll need an SUV that can get you there and back. The 2017 Nissan Rogue and the Honda CR-V are both SUVs that can do that, and more. Our Charleston Nissan team wrote this Nissan Rogue vs Honda CR-V comparison so that drivers in Summerville, North Charleston, and Mount Pleasant can discover these vehicles for themselves.

Interior Dimensions: Nissan Rogue vs Honda CR-V

Just because an SUV is designated as compact doesn’t mean it should skimp on passenger space. In the 2017 Nissan Rogue, the driver and front seat passenger will have 41.6 inches of headroom. The CR-V only offers 39.9 inches of front headroom. In the Rogue, the driver and front seat passenger will have a full 43 inches of legroom. The Honda CR-V only offers 41.3 inches of front legroom.

Innovative Cargo Space: Nissan Rogue vs Honda CR-V

Spaciousness isn’t the only component to a great cabin. Convenience boosting amenities are also extremely important. The 2017 Rogue’s Divide-N-Hide® Cargo System is the perfect complement to its 70 cubic feet maximum cargo capacity. This set of adjustable dividers and shelves allows you to create several unique storage layouts:

  • Box Configuration: Stow your valuables away from prying eyes, and even stack things on top.
  • Shelf Configuration: Two wide-open storage areas, one below and one above.
  • Regular Configuration: Store large items above the standard-height floor, and store secret items in the under-floor compartment.
  • Lowered Configuration: Drop the floor down to transport especially tall cargo.

Although the Honda CR-V also has a spacious cargo capacity, it can’t match the Nissan Rogue’s potential for customization that’s created by its Divide-N-Hide® Cargo System.

LED Technology: Nissan Rogue vs Honda CR-V

State-of-the-art LED technology provides several advantages over standard halogen lights. LED lights consume less energy, they last longer, they’re smaller, and they switch on and off more quickly. The 2017 Nissan Rogue and the Honda CR-V each feature available LED headlights. After that similarity, their lighting packages start to diverge. While the CR-V has an optional LED tail light upgrade, the Rogue comes standard with them. The Rogue also comes standard with signature LED Daytime Running Lights. On the Nissan Rogue, you can upgrade to available LED turn signals, which will give you improved visibility; this is very helpful in inclement weather. Unfortunately, this cool, safety-conscious feature isn’t available on the Honda CR-V.
