Compact crossover SUVs are red-hot. And consumers especially love the Honda
CR-V and Nissan Rogue, two of the best-selling vehicles in the United States.
Honda has been building compact crossovers for a long time, and it shows in the
Honda CR-V's roomy, high-quality interior that's designed to maximize
convenience for small families. You'll also find plenty of space and comfort inside
the Nissan Rogue, and you'll likely prefer its infotainment interface over the
Honda's. The edge goes to the CR-V in the powertrain department, as it offers
both a turbocharged 4-cylinder and a gas-electric hybrid version. The Rogue's
four-cylinder engine provides adequate performance and efficiency on flat
ground, but you'll wish for a turbo version if you drive in the mountains. In the
end, the Honda CR-V's strong reliability record and resale value might tip your
decision in its favor over the Nissan Rogue, but shoppers would be wise to test-
drive both the Honda and Nissan.
