The 2014 Honda CR-V vs. The 2014 Nissan Rogue
Easton area drivers have probably already seen a fair number of 2014 Honda CR-V models on the roads these days, and we’re always excited to see another driver leave Silko Honda in Raynham behind the wheel of one of these famous crossovers. The fact is that Honda helped to define and shape the crossover segment and continues to do so to this day with the CR-V. Stylish, powerful, and safe, Honda’s new crossover is a great deal, starting at just $22,945 (MSRP)*.
That said, there seem to be more and more crossovers each year, as vehicles like the 2014 Nissan Rogue try to compete with the classic CR-V. Let’s see just how well Nissan’s model stands up.
Honda Simply Outclasses the Nissan
One of the biggest upsides to Honda vehicles has been their ability to give modern drivers what they want, and 2014 looks to bolster that reputation even more, as the CR-V LX includes many amenities you won’t find on the basic Rogue:
- Honda i-MID infotainment system (with touchscreen interface)
- Tailgate power locks
- Stereo anti-theft
- Floor mats
The new CR-V includes a more powerful engine than the Rogue—185 hp to Nissan’s 170 hp—but it’s also more efficient. The EPA-estimated fuel economy of the two-wheel drive CR-V LX with automatic transmission is 31 mpg on the highway, while the Rogue only gets 28 mpg.**
Since many drivers choose crossovers like the CR-V as a family vehicle, you’ll be glad to know that Honda’s model earned Five Star ratings in overall safety—including front passenger, overall frontal safety, and side pole crash tests—and while we don’t expect the Nissan to fail them, their crossover has yet to be evaluated (and you can’t beat five stars…)
As an added benefit, remember that brand-new Honda models from Silko Honda come with SilkoCare, our special customer appreciation package that covers car washes, routine maintenance, and more. You won’t find that on a Nissan.
