2015 Nissan Rogue vs. 2015 Honda CR-V

Read This Before Driving Home a 2015 Nissan Rogue in Central Illinois

The 2015 Nissan Rogue has evolved quite a bit since it first hit the streets, yet it’s still a sensible crossover that refuses to get too flashy. NissanConnect, a touchscreen interface, Bluetooth, and a rearview camera can all be added onto the 2015 Rogue, but the basic S trim level is already well-equipped for a small crossover. Then there’s the Rogue’s fuel efficiency, 33 mpg on the highway and 26 mpg in the city, which makes it one of the better options in its class. But is it the best of the available crossovers?

The Rogue has come quite a long way, but it has always had to fight tooth and nail with the CR-V for a spot in the garages of Central Illinois. Considering that the 2015 Honda CR-V just earned Motor Trend’s 2015 Sport/Utility of the Year award. That’s just the start of things, however. Honda meets the expectations of the Nissan crossover when it comes to standard amenities and then drops a more efficient engine under the hood. 2015 CR-V 2WD models are rated at an EPA-estimated 34 highway and 27 city mpg.* It’s a small difference, but we assure you that it will build up over time. Then there’s the new top-of-the-line Touring trim on the CR-V, adding the new Honda Sensing safety technology that includes Lane Departure Warning, Lane Keeping Assist, Adaptive Cruise Control, and a Collision Mitigation Braking system.

Compare the models side-by-side, then see the CR-V in person by visiting a Central Illinois Honda Dealer.
