May 13th, 2013 by

2013 Honda CR-VMiddletown Honda dealership has provided its customers with a great selection of new and used Honda vehicles. With the all-new 2013 Honda CR-V, you shouldn’t expect anything less than great performance in an aggressive sleek exterior. The Nissan Rogue is also a great contender in its class, having a stylish exterior and a lightweight but powerful engine.

While you are considering either the CR-V to the Rogue, let us give you some data to compare some important categories when thinking about buying a car.

Honda Offers Drivers More for the Money

There’s a lot to be said about what’s under the hood of your vehicle. The Nissan Rogue has a lightweight 2.5L engine that has 170 hp with a fuel economy of 28 mpg on the highway.* Certainly nothing to sneeze at, but not overly impressive either.

Compared with Nissan, Honda’s new crossover comes out ahead with its 2.4L 16-valve DOHC i-VTEC engine which makes for good fuel economy. The CR-V can get up to 185 hp, and depending on your mileage and how you drive, it has an EPA-estimated 31 mpg on the highway.*
While the Rogue has a few safety features, the CR-V has all of the same and more:

  • Advanced Compatibility Engineering body structure
  • Vehicle Stability Assist with Motion-Adaptive EPS (Electric Power Steering)
  • Anti-Lock Braking System
  • Electronic Brake Distribution

Furthermore, the CR-V has been rated 5-stars overall in NHTSA crash tests, whereas the Rogue only has a 4-star rating overall, with only 3-stars in front passenger crash tests.

While you’ll fit up to five in either vehicle, the Honda features more space, at 104.1 cubic feet to the Rogue’s 97.5 cubic feet of space.

Now, that’s a difference you can feel!

Finally, the following are all included as standard features on the CR-V, while they’re either optional or unavailable on the Nissan:

  • Tailgate power lock
  • Rearview camera
  • Floor mats
  • Telescoping steering column
  • Stereo anti-theft

Let’s face it, you just get more with Honda!
