View Inventory
The 2016 Honda CR-V and the 2016 Nissan Rogue are competitors in the compact crossover segment. If you’re shopping for a versatile, fuel efficient, family-friendly vehicle here in the Frankfort and Orland Park, IL area, then both of these models should be on your list of crossovers to drive. So which one is the better choice? Find out how they compare below!

Performance and Efficiency

In this segment, shoppers usually value balance under the hood: you want enough power to move your cargo and passengers, but you don’t want to go bankrupt due to high gas bills either.

To that end, the 2016 Nissan Rogue uses a 2.5L four-cylinder engine to generate 170 hp and 175 lb-ft of torque. The EPA rates the Rogue at 26 mpg city/33 mpg highway/28 mpg combined with front-wheel drive and continuously variable transmission.

The 2016 Honda CR-V uses a 2.4L four-cylinder to generate 185 hp and 181 lb-ft of torque. The EPA rates the Honda CR-V at 26 mpg city/33 mpg highway/29 mpg combined* when equipped with continuously variable transmission and front-wheel drive.

It’s clear that the Honda CR-V not only gives you more efficiency, but more horsepower as well. While neither of these vehicles are designed for heavy towing, the CR-V can pull 1,500 pounds – a solid 500 pounds more than the Rogue.


We know that safety is a top priority. In National Highway Traffic Safety Administration testing, the 2016 Honda CR-V received a five-star rating in the front driver crash test, with a four-star rating in the front passenger crash test. The 2016 Nissan Rogue received only a four-star front driver crash test rating and a three-star front passenger crash test rating – sub-par no matter how you look at it.

In Insurance Institute for Highway Safety ratings, the Nissan Rogue earned the Top Safety Pick. That’s good, but the CR-V received the Top Safety Pick+ ranking, which takes into account front crash prevention. The CR-V can be had with the Honda Sensing system that adds front collision warning and automatic braking, lane departure warning and mitigation system, and adaptive cruise control – the Rogue can’t be equipped with those features.
