Powertrain Specs for the Honda CR-V and Nissan Rogue

If you're after efficiency, agility, and all-weather traction control, then you're in good hands with either the Honda CR-V or Nissan Rogue. Both SUVs have an available all-wheel drive (AWD) system that actively adjusts torque distribution between all four wheels to improve traction control. This is ideal for anyone who commutes to work during those snowy New Jersey winters.

They also both come with a continuously variable transmission (CVT). This helps to cut down on pit-stops at the fuel pump by optimizing performance and improving overall efficiency. While these two SUVs have plenty in common, we noticed a key difference when we looked at their engines:


2020 Honda CR-V

2020 Nissan Rogue


1.5L turbocharged I-4

2.5L I-4


190 horsepower

170 horsepower

As you can see above, the CR-V may provide an overall more energetic drive. Not only does it deliver 20 more horsepower than the Rogue, it also has that turbocharged kick. By comparison, drivers in the Nissan may find their performance lacking a bit compared to the Honda.

Interior Dimensions of the CR-V and Rogue

The roomy cabin space is one of the main draws to SUVs like the Honda CR-V and Nissan Rogue. With roughly 105 cubic feet of passenger volume in both vehicles, you'll definitely have plenty of room for anyone who wants to come along for the ride.

How about cargo volume, though? We definitely see a variation here, which you can observe in the table below:


2020 Honda CR-V

2020 Nissan Rogue




Passenger Volume

105.9 cubic feet

105.8 cubic feet

Trunk Volume

39.2 cubic feet

39.3 cubic feet

Total Cargo Volume

75.8 cubic feet

70 cubic feet

The biggest difference we noticed is in the overall cargo volume. While both the CR-V and Rogue give you a little more than 39 cubic feet of cargo space behind the second row, the CR-V offers an extra 5.8 cubic feet of total cargo volume when you fold the rear seat down.

So, you may have to leave more behind if you're driving the Nissan Rogue than you would if you were driving the Honda CR-V.

Smart Safety and Driver-Assistive Features

Understandably, staying safe behind the wheel is a key point for modern car shoppers. That's why we love that both the Honda CR-V and Nissan Rogue come equipped with standard smart safety features that are designed to improve drivers' awareness of their surroundings. Features that come standard in both vehicles include:

  • Lane keeping
  • Rearview camera
  • Forward collision mitigation
  • Auto high beams

The Honda CR-V also comes standard with Adaptive Cruise Control, which is great for anyone who travels long distances on the highway. This automatically adjusts your cruise control speed to go with the flow of slower-moving traffic.

Unfortunately, the Nissan Rogue requires a trim level upgrade before a comparable feature is available.
