2015 Honda CR-V vs. 2015 Nissan Rogue

2015 Honda CR-V vs. 2015 Nissan Rogue

Two vehicles that are among the most popular in the compact SUV segment are the 2015 Honda CR-V and the 2015 Nissan Rogue. Both of these models are coming off recent redesigns that have put them miles ahead of the competition in terms of innovation, style and quality. So we decided to do a 2015 Honda CR-V vs. 2015 Nissan Rouge comparison page to highlight everything that is great about these models.

Both of these vehicles got unique styling upgrades that really makes them stand out in a good way. For 2015 Honda restyled the front and rear of the CR-V to give it a more bold design with flowing lines. To round of the new design changes Honda also added features such as new wheels that are much more stylish, along with chrome accents and HID headlamps.

The Nissan Rogue got a fresh redesign last year and it looks just as stylish as the CR-V. Nissan gave the Rouge a new look that is a little more conservative and modern looking than we have seen in previous model years. From front to back the Rogue has a style that looks and feels more premium than ever before.

One of the major differences between these  two vehicles has to do with the amount of interior space that they have. The 2015 Honda CR-V has considerably more interior space than the Rouge and the dimensions are almost large enough to classify it as a mid-size SUV. The Rouge on the other hand has interior dimensions that are smaller and closer to what a typical compact SUV would have. Overall, both of these vehicles are a solid choice in the midsize SUV segment for the 2015 model year.

This new engine is able to reach its top horsepower 600 RPMs earlier than the previous generation, which really improves performance. The Nissan Rogue features the same 2.5 liter engine as last year, which is paired up to a continuously variable transmission again as well.
