2015 Nissan Rogue vs. 2015 Honda CR-V in San Antonio

Checking out crossover options? Crossovers provide the maneuverability of a compact car with the strength of an SUV. You really can’t go wrong! Well, that’s not entirely true-not all crossovers are created equal, so don’t cheat yourself out of the very best option! Today at Benson Honda we’re taking an in-depth look at a couple of crossover options on the market: the 2015 Nissan Rogue and the 2015 Honda CR-V in San Antonio.

 

When it comes to engine performance, the 2015 CR-V has the 2015 Rogue beat. The CR-V’s 2.4 DOHC 4 cylinder produces 15 more horsepower than the Rogue’s 2.5 DOHC 4 cylinder engine. This could contribute to the CR-V going zero to 60 MPG in just 8.5 seconds! (Compared to the Rogue’s 9.1 seconds.) Despite the quicker acceleration, the fuel economy is about the same between the CR-V and Rogue. According to the EPA, the 2015 Honda CR-V in San Antonio gets 27 city/34 hwy* while the 2015 Nissan Rogue in San Antonio gets 26 city/33 hwy*.

 

You shouldn’t buy a car without top-of-the-line safety, so let’s talk about the safety ratings. After the NHTSA front crash test, the CR-V left with an overall 4-star rating, but the Rogue only received 3-stars. In the same test, the CR-V received 5-stars for the driver and 4-stars for the front passenger while the Rogue received 3-stars for the driver and a lowly 2-star rating for the front passenger. In the NHTSA side impact test, both vehicles received a 5-star rating overall. Because of it’s near-perfect safety ratings, the CR-V was granted a “Top Pick Plus” by the IIHS for 2015 while the Rogue was only named a “Top Pick” for 2015.

 

In addition to being a “Top Pick Plus” for safety, the Honda CR-V is known for its reliability standards. Consumer Reports predicts that the CR-V will be 22% more reliable than the Rogue. And, did you know that Honda is ranked 8th in initial quality while Nissan is ranked 19th? That’s a pretty big gap!

 

Lastly, both crossovers are fairly equal when it comes to the fun extras. You’ll enjoy standard Bluetooth wireless, an audio system with color display screen, back-up camera and keyless remote entry/vehicle start in either the CR-V or the Rogue! One cool feature that Honda offers that Nissan doesn’t is Honda HD Digital Traffic that alerts you of current traffic conditions and guides you the quickest and least congested way.

 

Looks like if you want the top crossover today, you’re better off going with the 2015 Honda CR-V in San Antonio. Think so too? Come see us at Benson Honda and we will be more than happy to get you in the driver’s seat!
