2019 Honda CR-V vs Nissan Rogue

Honda CR-V

When it comes time to choose your next compact SUV, you have some great options, such as the 2019 Honda CR-V or Nissan Rogue. However, it’s important to know which is the best fit for your drives around Biloxi, Gulfport, and Long Beach.

To help you determine which is the right pick for you, our team at Pat Peck Honda compared the 2019 Honda CR-V vs. Nissan Rogue on the points of powertrain, safety technology, and interior dimensions.

Honda CR-V vs Nissan Rogue Powertrain

At the heart of the compact SUV is the engine, and both the CR-V and Rogue have a healthy one that offers plenty of power.


Standard Engine



Honda CR-V

2.4L I-4


180 lb-ft

Nissan Rogue

2.5L I-4


175 lb-ft

Both SUVs are highly efficient as well due in part to their continuously variable transmissions (CVT). This kind of transmission does away with the set shift points of a traditional automatic and instead allows for a nearly infinite number of shift points between the upper and lower limit.

In the Rogue, this manifests as a maximum EPA-estimated fuel economy of 26 city/32 highway MPG. The Honda CR-V, on the other hand, maxes out its EPA-estimated fuel economy at 28 city/34 highway MPG.1

The CR-V reaches this level of efficiency with the available 1.5L turbo I-4 engine that has an even higher output at 190 horsepower.

Safety Technology in the CR-V and Rogue

To help you get where you’re going safely, both SUVs offer several available safety technologies that can make you more aware of your surroundings. For example, they each have an available blind spot monitor that alerts you to vehicles in your side blind spots.

They also have an available auto high beam feature that automatically toggles your high beams on and off based on the flow of oncoming traffic. This way, you can focus more of your attention on navigating in low-visibility conditions.

The Honda CR-V also offers a neat feature in the available Driver Attention Monitor. This feature will continuously monitor your driving habits. If it senses out-of-character patterns that imply drowsy or distracted driving, you’ll see a light on your dashboard telling you it’s time for a break.

The Nissan Rogue doesn’t have a comparable feature, so drivers may not be as aware of when they’re too tired to drive.

Interior Dimensions

Honda CR-V

What you’ll find when you climb inside the cabin of the Honda CR-V and Nissan Rogue is that they both have plenty of space for passengers. Both vehicles measure in at approximately 105 cubic feet of total passenger volume.

They also seat five passengers comfortably while still providing around 39 cubic feet of trunk space behind the second row. However, if you need to pack heavy for an upcoming trip or to move to a new apartment, you might be able to fit a bit more in the Honda CR-V.

When you fold the rear seats down in the CR-V, you’ll have a total cargo volume of 75.8 cubic feet. The Nissan Rogue has a total cargo volume of 70 cubic feet.
