The 2013 Honda CR-V vs. the 2013 Nissan Rogue
Drivers searching for a great crossover SUV should look at the 2013 Honda CR-V, available now at your local Highland-area Honda dealership. At Bosak Honda Highland, we’ve known that the CR-V was an amazing auto from the moment the first one rolled onto our lot. With it’s luxurious cabin, smooth design, and powerful engine, the 2013 CR-V is sure to dominate its market segment, especially when competitively priced at a base MSRP $22,695.*
That being said, it’s an awfully competitive segment, and the 2013 Nissan Rogue is still quite a worthy contender. Let’s see how they stack up!
Honda Delivers More with the CR-V
There’s no doubt that the 2013 Rogue is a good vehicle, but why would you want to settle for simply “good?” While Honda’s latest SUV is already an affordable buy, you’ll keep saving money with it every time you hit the pump, thanks to its EPA-estimated fuel economy of 31 mpg on the highway (2WD models).** With the Nissan, you’ll only be getting 28 mpg on the highway, which will certainly add up quickly if you’ve got a daily commute of any size.
You’ve also got more power rumbling under the hood of the Honda, thanks to its 185 hp engine. The Rogue’s only good for 170 hp, which will leave you trailing behind drivers as you try to merge onto the highway.
Honda also has included features that many drivers expect to come standard with modern autos, such as a tailgate power lock, rearview camera, telescoping steering column, and matching floor mats. The camera and the floor mats are an optional upgrade on the Rogue, and you won’t be able to get the power locking tailgate or telescoping steering column at all. It’s clear that Honda thinks you deserve more.
Of course, where Honda really shines is in safety, as always. The 2013 CR-V received a perfect five-star overall government crash-test rating (NHTSA), including five stars for front crash safety, while the Nissan only received four stars overall. Honda also includes an anti-theft device standard with your stereo system, a feature unavailable on the Rogue.
Finally, you’ll enjoy the ride so much more in your CR-V, thanks to nearly 10 more cubic feet of passenger room and 13 cubic feet more of cargo storage space.
