Norm Reeves Honda Superstore Irvine has decided to put together this comparison of the 2022 Honda CR-V vs. Nissan Rogue to highlight what these SUVs can offer you. Then, you can contact us to learn more and test drive your favorite model.
HYBRID POWERTRAIN AVAILABLE
The 2022 Honda CR-V and Nissan Rogue are great everyday vehicles since they each offer a comfortable ride and composed handling. However, you’ll get more power with the Honda model.
The CR-V comes standard with a 1.5L 4-cylinder turbocharged engine. It generates 190 horsepower, giving drivers a sporty, peppy vehicle that’s ready to take on the day.
The CR-V comes out on top when considering fuel efficiency. The 2022 CR-V achieves up to an EPA-estimated 28 city/34 highway MPG on all 2-wheel drive (2WD) trims.1 The Nissan Rogue has very similar ratings on 2WD models. However, only the CR-V comes available with a hybrid powertrain on the EX, EX-L, and Touring trims, which helps it earn an EPA-estimated 40 city and 35 highway MPG.1
The CR-V and Rogue each seat five people and offer lots of room for you and your friends or family. This is especially the case in the back of the Honda, where it has 40.4 inches of rear legroom.
In comparison, the Nissan offers just 38.5 inches of rear legroom. As a result, taller riders may feel a bit more cramped in the back of this SUV.
Whether you’re taking your kids to practice or planning a day of shopping at the outlet, it’s nice to have a vehicle that can store all your cargo. While both SUVs have plenty of space, you’ll have more in the 2022 CR-V.
This vehicle has 39.2 cubic feet of cargo room behind the rear seats. Fold the second row of seats down and you’re looking at 75.8 cubic feet to store your goodies. In the Nissan, you’ll have 36.5 cubic feet with the seat up and a maximum cargo capacity of just 74.1 cubic feet with the seats folded flat.
The Honda CR-V has a sleek design that features an active shutter grille that brings a bold look and improved aerodynamics to the front of the CR-V. Its wide stance is then accentuated by its available dual chrome exhaust finishers.
Inside, the CR-V offers a more luxurious kind of family SUV from the moment you open the door. When you step in, you’ll can be greeted by optional leather-trimmed seats and steering wheel. Plus, a 12-way power-adjustable driver’s seat is available, so you can quickly get comfortable behind the wheel.
Unfortunately, the Nissan Rogue doesn’t offer these kinds of design features. It doesn’t have the stylish benefits of the active shutter grille or dual-chrome exhaust finishers. While you can opt for leather-appointed seats in the Rogue, this SUV only equips an 8-way power-adjustable driver’s seat.
The 2022 Nissan Rogue is certainly an impressive SUV. However, it’s the 2022 Honda CR-V that offers more efficiency, space, and luxury features.
If this comparison has helped you narrow down the best SUV for getting your family around Santa Ana, Mission Viejo, and Tustin, then come into Norm Reeves Honda Superstore Irvine to set up a test drive.
