2021 Honda CR-V vs 2021 Nissan Rogue: The champion vs the challenger


There are a lot of compact sport utility vehicles on the market and every year new challengers to the Honda CR-V seem to appear. The Honda CR-V has been one of the best-selling compact SUVs in its segment in the last decade, and it was one of the original sport utility vehicles of its class. The Nissan Rogue on the other hand has been redesigned this year and also offers quite a few features that are interesting to consumers. Ultimately, when Nissan redesigned the Rogue, what they were aiming for was to beat the Honda CR-V. However, when you compare the 2021 Honda CR-V to the Nissan Rogue, you realize that the Nissan is still missing a few features.

More space and better performance in the 2021 Honda CR-V

One of the areas where the 2021 Honda CR-V truly shines is in terms of interior space. Although the Nissan Rogue with over 2,000 L of cargo space is one of the most spacious in the segment, it cannot beat the Honda CR-V in terms of interior space. The CR-V offers more legroom and also has 2,146 L of total cargo space.

Moreover, when we look under the hood, we find that the Honda CR-V offers better performance. Indeed, the 2021 Honda CR-V offers one single turbocharged four-cylinder engine that delivers 190 horsepower along with 179 pound-feet of torque. This makes the CR-V one of the most powerful models and its class and it allows it also to offer exceptional fuel economy with an average fuel consumption rating of 8.7 L per 100 km.

The Nissan Rogue has less power with 181 horsepower, but it also averages 9.2 L per 100 km of fuel consumption with all-wheel drive.

When you look at the overall package in the Honda CR-V, you realize that you get more space, more power, and better fuel economy. You also get slightly higher towing capacity with 1,500 lb of total towing ability in the CR-V. Add to that advanced safety features such as emergency braking with pedestrian detection, lane departure warning system, rear cross-traffic alert, rear intelligent emergency braking, and high beam assist all offered as standard equipment in the 2021 Honda CR-V, and you realize that the overall package is much more appealing compared to the new rogue.
