Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Honda CR-V than in the Nissan Rogue Sport. The Nissan Rogue Sport 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
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Honda CR-V as you will with the Nissan Rogue Sport, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

Cost

Both the Honda CR-V and the Nissan Rogue Sport have similar Destination Charges.

With somewhat higher torque, the Honda CR-V transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Nissan Rogue Sport.
