Head-to-Head: 2015 Nissan Rogue vs. 2015 Honda CR-V – Nicholasville, KY

We know there’s a feud a-brewing, it’s a matter of the 2015 Nissan Rogue vs. the 2015 Honda CR-V.  You may think we here at Nicholasville Nissan are getting ready to play favorites (which we totally are, actually…) but we’re ready to give you a run down between these two so we can show you just how great the Nissan Rogue truly is.

Both these two vehicles have higher than average safety ratings according to J.D. Power Vehicle Dependability studies, so we can call it a draw on the reliability point.

Fuel Economy
The Rogue performs vastly better than the CR-V when it comes to gas mileage. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, 2014 Honda CR-V models are rated at 23 miles per gallon in the city and 31 mpg on the highway with 2-wheel drive, or 22 mpg city/30 mpg hwy with all-wheel drive. The Rogue, however, is rated at 26 mpg city/33 mpg hwy with 2-wheel drive, or 25 mpg city/32 mpg hwy with all-wheel drive. Nissan wins, as it should!

In tests conducted by the nonprofit Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), the Nissan Rogue outperformed the 2014 Honda CR-V. The Rogue also boasts many more safety-related options than the CR-V, such as its Around View Monitor camera system to a blind spot monitoring system, a lane-departure warning system and a forward-collision warning system. Boom! Nissan wins again.

The 2015 Nissan Rogue has a lot of items that the CR-V just doesn’t. Such as the Around View Monitor camera system, which combines four camera angles to provide what looks like a top-down view of the vehicle. The Rogue also offers a long list of high-tech safety equipment that the CR-V doesn’t have, including a blind spot monitoring system, a lane-departure warning system and a forward-collision warning system. The Rogue also has more of the convenience features, like a panoramic sunroof and a power lift gate, that again, the CR-V doesn’t. This is getting embarrassing here…

The Rogue’s base price is $23,350, while the CR-V’s base price is $23,775 It’s not a big difference, but it’s still there.

At Nicholasville Nissan, we usually like to see a fair fight, but we think it’s clear who the winner is, it’s the Nissan Rogue and definitely with a TKO!
