The appeal of small crossovers like the 2016 Honda CR-V and the 2016 Nissan Rogue is that they give you capabilities beyond what a sedan can offer but are still small enough to be fuel-efficient and agile. Within the small crossover SUV segment, however, there is a significant amount of variety in terms of both capabilities and quality. As you search for a new vehicle, find out how the latest Honda CR-V and Nissan Rogue compare to each other. When you’re ready to learn more, travel from Laurel or Lockwood to Underriner Honda in Billings to check out the 2016 Honda CR-V.


The 2016 Honda CR-V provides a balance of power and fuel economy that the Nissan Rogue can’t match. All trims are powered by a 2.4L four-cylinder engine that puts out 185 hp and 181 lb-ft of torque. That is enough power to sprint from zero to60 mph in only 8.8 seconds. Fuel efficiency for the 2016 Honda CR-V 2WD has been rated at up to an impressive EPA-estimated 26 mpg city and 33 mpg highway.*

All Nissan Rogue trims are powered by a 2.5L four-cylinder that only puts out 170 hp and 175 lb-ft of torque and takes a full 9.3 seconds to reach 60 mph. Despite the lower power output, fuel efficiency ratings do not rise above 26 mpg city and 33 mpg highway, according to the EPA.
