Not only is the new Honda CR-V more fuel efficient than the Rogue, it offers greater horsepower and more standard safety features, such as rear park assist, a CD anti-theft system, and Advanced Compatibility Engineering body structure. In the Rogue, the latter two features aren't even available as options. As for park assist - Nissan makes you pay for it.
The 2012 Honda CR-V also offers more in the way of standard comfort, convenience and entertainment features. For example, while Bluetooth comes with the CR-V; you have to pay for it in the Rogue.
A couple of other things we think you'll love about the CR-V, which are not available in the Rogue? 60/40 Split folding rear seats, rear power outlet, cargo net and auto on/off headlights.
Something as expected as floor mats? Standard in the CR-V. Optional in the Rogue. How cheap is that?! ... To make someone pay for floor mats.
As far as price is concerned, the Rogue offers a slightly smaller starting M.S.R.P. However, when you look at the big picture, it's not really any less expensive than the Honda CR-V. And, the CR-V more than makes up for the difference with a smaller comparably equipped price and destination charge, not to mention significantly higher ALG 36-month and 60-month residual values and better fuel economy.
