New vehicle shoppers in the crossover segment have a ton of options to choose from, but despite all those options, there isn’t a ton of variety. It can sometimes feel like crossovers from brand to brand are very much the same, leaving drivers like yourself looking for options that stand out. We’ll help you find just that in this comparison of the 2018 Honda CR-V vs the 2018 Nissan Rogue.
To start with, one of the biggest reasons drivers look to choose a crossover over something like a sedan is due to the increased cargo space. So, which model has the edge in this comparison? Well, it’s the Honda CR-V with up to 75.8 cu ft of rear cargo space once the rear seats are folded down. You may be thinking that the Rogue makes up for this with more passenger space, but the truth is, both models have identical passenger room at 106 cu ft.
2018 Honda CR-V LX
2018 Nissan Rogue S
|Up to 75.8 cu ft||Cargo Space||Up to 70 cu ft|
|184 hp||Horsepower||170 hp|
|180 lb-ft||Torque||175 lb-ft|
|Starts at $24,250*||MSRP||Starts at $24,800|
Underneath the hood, the two models are close to being similar as well, but still not the same. Overall, the CR-V's entry level LX model pumps out more power through its engine than the power plant found under the hood of the Rogue’s entry level model, the S trim. Moreover, moving up trim levels on the Rogue does not improve its power output.
The last, but not least, key difference between these vehicles is the starting MSRP, with the 2018 Honda CR-V LX having a starting MSRP just a bit lower than the Rogue at $24,250.* So now that you’ve seen how the 2018 Honda CR-V stands out in the crossover segment, consider experiencing it for yourself here at Hilton Head Honda.
