2018 Nissan Rogue vs 2018 Honda CR-V

Serving Gainesville, Atlanta, and Toccoa, GA

Vehicles like the Nissan Rogue and the Honda CR-V provide an alternative to customers who do not need their SUVs to be big, hulking machines. Some SUVs can provide ample cabins without being large and rugged, and they can emphasize fuel efficiency and smooth driving dynamics – and that’s what both vehicles represent. While the CR-V is notable for being one of the first vehicles of its kind when it debuted in the mid-‘90s, the Rogue is a comparatively new vehicle; Nissan started producing it in 2007. For 2018, neither nameplate boasts any major changes, as the CR-V settles into its fifth production cycle and the Rogue continues its second. While both are fine vehicles, the Rogue should be worth considering as the better choice due to the following:

Interior Volume

As smaller, compact-size SUVs, interior space is more treasured than ever. On the 2018 Nissan Rogue, you can expect to get a standard cargo volume – measured between the rear seats and liftgate – of 39.3 cubic feet. On the 2018 Honda CR-V, the standard cargo volume is 39.2 cubic feet. Although both vehicles have two rows to seat up to five people, the Nissan Rogue provides a passenger volume of 105.8 cubic feet across its three trims. On the Honda CR-V, you’d ironically get less passenger volume if you upgrade to the EX and Touring trim levels, which supply 102.9 cubic feet and 101.6 cubic feet, respectively.

Storage System

Unique to the 2018 Nissan Rogue is Divide-N-Hide®, which is a cargo configuration system that involves the cargo floor being made of two solid pieces. These pieces that can be lifted up to elevate the floor height, thereby making it level with second-row seats when they are folded down to create more cargo-carrying space. In addition, you can position the cargo-floor pieces to form cubbies or create an upper shelf. It’s a feature that has no equivalent on the 2018 Honda CR-V.

Infotainment System

Although automotive writers remark that the 2018 Honda CR-V’s infotainment system has simple menus and commands, it somehow does not function as smoothly as it should. The same is not said for the 2018 Nissan Rogue. Indeed, some writers contend that it has one of the most intuitive infotainment systems in the compact SUV class. And Nissan certainly does not skimp on its components; at the base level, the Rogue includes an AM/FM radio tuner, a single-disc CD player with MP3 and WMA playback compatibility, Siri Eyes Free® for voice-command ability, a three-month trial subscription to SiriusXM® satellite radio, a rearview camera, Bluetooth®** connectivity for hands-free phone calling and audio streaming, Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay™ for executing functions with your smartphone, and a 7-inch color screen.
