Consumer Reports

Tires and Wheels Comparison

For better traction, the Rogue has larger tires than the CR‑V (225/65R17 vs. 215/70R16).

The Rogue S/SV’s standard tires provide better handling because they have a lower 65 series profile (height to width ratio) that provides a stiffer sidewall than the CR‑V LX’s standard 70 series tires.

For better ride, handling and brake cooling the Rogue S/SV has standard 17-inch wheels. Smaller 16-inch wheels are standard on the CR‑V LX.

The Rogue has a standard easy tire fill system. When inflating the tires, the vehicle’s integrated tire pressure sensors keep track of the pressure as the tires fill and tell the driver when the tires are inflated to the proper pressure. The CR‑V doesn’t offer vehicle monitored tire inflation.

Changing a flat tire near traffic can be dangerous and inconvenient. The run-flat tires available on the Rogue can be driven up to 50 miles without any air pressure, allowing you to drive to a service station for a repair. The CR‑V doesn’t offer run-flat tires.

Suspension and Handling Comparison

For a smoother ride and more stable handling, the Rogue’s wheelbase is 3.4 inches longer than on the CR‑V (106.5 inches vs. 103.1 inches).

For greater off-road capability the Rogue has a greater minimum ground clearance than the CR‑V (7.6 vs. 6.7 inches), allowing the Rogue to travel over rougher terrain without being stopped or damaged.

Passenger Space Comparison

The Rogue offers optional seating for 7 passengers; the CR‑V can only carry 5.

The Rogue has 22.4 cubic feet more passenger volume than the CR‑V (126.5 vs. 104.1).

The Rogue has 1.7 inches more front headroom and 1.7 inches more front legroom than the CR‑V.

Cargo Capacity Comparison

The Rogue’s cargo area provides more volume than the CR‑V.

Ergonomics Comparison

If the windows are left down on the Rogue the driver can raise them all using the key in the outside lock cylinder; on a hot day the driver can lower the windows. The driver of the CR‑V can only operate the windows from inside the vehicle, with the ignition on.

The Rogue’s variable intermittent wipers have an adjustable delay to allow the driver to choose a setting that best clears the windshield during light rain or mist. The CR‑V LX/SE’s standard fixed intermittent wipers only have one fixed delay setting, so the driver will have to manually switch them between slow and intermittent.

Recommendations Comparison

Consumer Reports® recommends both the Nissan Rogue and the Honda CR‑V, based on reliability, safety and performance.
