Chicagoland drivers know that when they want one of the most versatile and fuel-efficient crossovers on the road, they need to only visit Community Honda for the CR-V. The 2014 Honda CR-V is in stock now at our dealership, and it’s better than ever, continuing to redefine what drivers expect out of their vehicles.
Though started by the CR-V, the crossover class has grown significantly in recent years, and competitors like the 2014 Nissan Rogue might seem appealing to area drivers. Can the Rogue compare to the CR-V?
Honda Makes a Well-Equipped and Safe Crossover
Standard features and safety are two of the traits that have come to regularly define modern Honda models, and they are front and center on the new CR-V. You’ll find standard on each CR-V features like:
- Bluetooth HandsFreeLink for phone and audio
- Honda’s i-MID touchscreen infotainment system
- Built-in rearview camera with guidelines
- Steering wheel-mounted controls
- SMS texting and Pandora radio
In order to outfit the Rogue comparably to the CR-V, you’ll need to upgrade at a considerable cost.
Honda’s vehicle also demolished the Rogue in NHTSA safety tests, earning five stars in front passenger crash tests, overall frontal crash safety, and overall safety ratings. The Rogue only scored two, three, and four stars respectively.
The CR-V is a Smart Investment
If that wasn’t enough to convince you, ALG has estimated residual values of both the Rogue and the CR-V and determined the Honda crossover to keep more of its value over time:
- The ALG residual value at 36 months for the 2014 Honda CR-V 2WD LX is 56% to the Rogue’s 49%.
- ALG’s 60-month residual value on the 2014 Honda CR-V 2WD LX is 40% to the Rogue’s 38%.
