There are lots of crossovers and SUVs on the market these days, so which is the best choice? In order to find out, consumers must look closely at things like versatile performance options, safety features, and conveniences.
Two of the most popular vehicles in this class are the 2019 Nissan Rogue and the 2019 Honda CRV. But who comes out victorious?
Whether drivers are using their crossover for a solo commute or as a compact family hauler, they will want the best in advanced safety. Both the 2019 Nissan Rogue and the 2019 Honda CR-V come with smart driver-assist features, but when drivers opt for the Honda CR-V they’ll have to pay extra for these tools. The Honda Sensing® suite of safety features is only included in the second trim and higher. The 2019 Nissan Rogue, on the other hand, includes some of the most desired driver-assist features as standard in every trim, including Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection and Intelligent Lane Intervention.
As with safety features, the 2019 Honda CR-V reserves its most wanted tech features for its higher trims. While all models include a 7-inch touchscreen with the HondaLink® system, buyers will have to upgrade to the EX model to receive the convenience of Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™. However, these features are standard on every trim of the 2019 Nissan Rogue, as is a 7-inch color touchscreen with NissanConnect®, which means that in this crossover consumers can pay less for intuitive, versatile smartphone connectivity.
Both the Nissan Rogue and the Honda CR-V boast similar performance numbers, each with a base-level 4-cylinder engine. However, when it comes to modern electric powertrain options, consumers must turn to the 2019 Nissan Rogue. This crossover offers two hybrid trims, the SV Hybrid and the SL Hybrid. Both are equipped with a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine plus an electric motor with an Intelligent Dual Clutch System and a lithium-ion battery. The Honda CR-V does not offer any hybrid model.
Fuel efficiency is important in any car. The 2019 Honda CR-V has impressive numbers, with a base-level EPA-estimated 32 mpg highway.** However, the Nissan Rogue tops that slightly, boasting a standard 33 mpg highway**, and up to 35 mpg highway in hybrid trims.**
The 2019 Nissan Rogue is clearly the winner in this faceoff. Come see it for yourself here at James Ceranti Nissan.
