2017 Honda CR-V vs 2017 Nissan Rogue
If you desire a stylish, highly functional and fun-to-drive compact SUV, then you'd be hard-pressed to find a better choice than the 2017 Honda CR-V. It's been leading the way for the segment since its debut nearly two decades ago, and for 2017, it gets even better with a complete redesign — featuring sleek new styling, the model's first turbocharged engine and a wide array of advanced technology and premium amenities. See how the new CR-V favorably stacks up against the competition in this 2017 Honda CR-V vs 2017 Nissan Rogue comparison.
If you place a premium on a vehicle's safety, then you'll find the CR-V to be a better choice, especially with its Honda Sensing suite of advanced safety and driver assistance technology, which comes standard in EX and above trims. Features of Honda Sensing includes Collision Mitigation Braking with Forward Collision Warning and pedestrian sensing capability, Road Departure Mitigation with Lane Departure Warning, Adaptive Cruise Control with low-speed follow and Lane Keeping Assist. Additional new driver-assistive technologies include the available Blind Spot Information, Rear Cross Traffic Monitor and Auto High Beam headlights. While you can get some of these technologies in the Rogue, most of them are only offered as an optional feature in the highest level SL trim.

Advantages and Benefits of the 2017 Honda CR-V
Another advantage of the 2017 CR-V is its comfortable, spacious and sophisticated interior. The more roomy cabin, with top-in-class interior space and the best rear seat legroom in its class, features upgraded materials throughout, including a new soft-touch instrument panel and more intricately stitched seats. The 2017 CR-V EX comes standard with a 10-Way Adjustable Driver Seat, while the Rogue doesn't offer this feature. Also, the CR-V offers the latest in-vehicle connectivity and audio performance with a new generation of advanced technologies, including the available 7-inch touchscreen Display Audio interface with Android operating system, enabling you to be well-connected and entertained for any of your trips.
On the performance front, the 2017 CR-V EX easily outmuscles the 2017 Rogue SV. A major improvement for 2017 is the CR-V's first ever turbocharged engine, a more powerful 1.5-liter DOHC, direct-injected and turbocharged in-line 4-cylinder powerplant, which is rated at 190 horsepower and delivers incredibly refined and responsive performance across the engine's full operating range (EX and higher). In comparison, the Rogue only manages 170 horsepower with its 2.5-liter I-4. Further enhancing the CR-V's performance is its smooth shifting and sporty continuously variable transmission (CVT) with Honda G-Shift control logic. Also, the all-new body and chassis design in the 2017 CR-V provides more agile and confident handling, greater refinement, additional ground clearance and superior overall versatility.
