2015 Honda CR-V vs. 2014 Nissan Xterra Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Honda CR-V than in the Nissan Xterra. The Nissan Xterra will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Honda CR-V.

Convenience
The Honda CR-V requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Nissan Xterra, making it more convenient to drive.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The Honda CR-V is somewhat more expensive than the Nissan Xterra. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Honda CR-V and the Nissan Xterra have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Honda CR-V is a little narrower than the Nissan Xterra, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. When looking at overall length, the Honda CR-V takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Nissan Xterra.

Drivetrain
The Honda CR-V has much lower torque than the Nissan Xterra, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Honda CR-V has the same turning radius as the Nissan Xterra, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Nissan Xterra is clearly the choice over the Honda CR-V for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Honda CR-V has a lot less horsepower than the Nissan Xterra.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Honda CR-V and the Nissan Xterra.

Warranty
The Honda CR-V comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Nissan Xterra.
