2015 Nissan Rogue vs. 2015 Honda CR-V

Before You Drive Home a 2015 Nissan Rogue in West Michigan…

The 2015 Nissan Rogue has come a long way, and while it may seem like an attractive choice to our West Michigan drivers, we think that it still has a little bit further it needs to go. Available features like NissanConnect, Bluetooth connectivity, a touchscreen infotainment system, and more are all available, but the basic Rogue S is lacking some modern features drivers prefer. And while the Rogue’s fuel economy of 33 highway and 26 city mpg isn’t too bad, there are competing models that are more fuel efficient.

One of the crossovers competing with the Rogue is the 2015 Honda CR-V, which just took home Motor Trend’s 2015 Sport/Utility of the Year Award. They only grant that award to one vehicle, and while the Rogue isn’t a bad vehicle, the CR-V got the trophy. The 2015 CR-V 2WD also earns an EPA-estimated 34 mpg on the highway and 27 mpg in the city.* It’s a small change from the Rogue, but it’s one of many small differences that pile up into a big reason to choose the CR-V as your next crossover in West Michigan. Do you want all-wheel drive to be able to conquer the snow? Add it on to any of the CR-V’s trim levels. What about high-tech standard features? The 2015 CR-V LX comes with Bluetooth HandsFreeLink, SMS texting, Pandora radio, Honda’s i-MID infotainment system, steering wheel-mounted controls, and much more.

See how these two crossovers compare in our side-by-side chart below, then let us put you in the driver’s seat of a 2015 CR-V to see it firsthand at a West Michigan Honda Dealer.
