The 2014 Honda CR-V vs. the 2014 Nissan Rogue
Now available at Community Honda of Orland Park, IL is the 2014 Honda CR-V. A popular vehicle with all types of drivers, the CR-V is a compact crossover SUV, offering advantages over traditional SUVs with smoother handling, improved fuel economy, and plenty of extra space. There are other CUVs out there, though, such as the 2014 Nissan Rogue. Let’s take a quick look at how the vehicles compare.
The 2014 Nissan Rogue has a 2.5L four-cylinder while the CR-V has a 2.4L four-cylinder under the hood. At first glance, the win seems to go to the Rogue in this category, but the Honda crossover actually offers more horsepower: 185 hp over 170 hp. To help power that engine, the CR-V also has a larger fuel tank with nearly a gallon more space.
Cargo Space and Towing Capability
These vehicles are about the same size, so it would make sense they have relatively the same cargo space. The CR-V still gets the edge with a maximum 70.9 cubic feet of space, about a foot more than the 2014 Nissan.
In terms of towing, the Honda’s win is clearer as the CR-V can tow 1500 pounds while the Rogue can only do 1000 pounds. If you ever plan on doing any sort of hauling, you may not want to with the Nissan.
Another category the Honda excels in is the amount of passenger space. In the front row, the driver and passenger have more hip room and shoulder room. Things are even better in the back where passengers have more head, hip, leg, and shoulder room. Even adult passengers can ride comfortably in the back; we can’t say the same for the Rogue, though.
