Though we do admit that the 2019 Nissan Rogue has a longer standard features list, the 2019 Honda CR-V emerges victorious in all the other major categories. Not only does its price start lower, but it gets a superior fuel economy, higher towing capacity, larger maximum cargo volume, and higher horsepower. It’s nothing particularly against the 2019 Nissan Rogue; the 2019 Honda CR-V is simply a hard vehicle for anything in the class to compete with.

Special attention should be given to the impressive performance of the 2019 Honda CR-V. The base engine is more powerful than that of the 2019 Rogue, and its accompanying Continuously Variable Transmission shifts more smoothly. On top of that, the available turbocharged engine can deliver even more oomph for those that desire it.
