Many drivers have been relying on the 2021 Honda CR-V or Nissan Rogue to take their family around the Lubbock area, but which SUV is the right one for you? Our team at Brown Honda of San Angelo is here to break down the differences in our Honda CR-V vs. Nissan Rogue guide, so you can see which one is ultimately the better choice! 

CR-V vs. Rogue: Starting Price

Whether you have a family or not, everything costs, so it is wiser to find the SUV that gives you a better bang for your buck! Take a look at the starting prices for the base trims before deciding if you should go with the Honda CR-V or Nissan Rogue:

  • 2021 Honda CR-V LX 2WD CVT – $25,350 MSRP*
  • 2021 Nissan Rogue S FWD – $25,850 MSRP

The Honda SUV is cheaper than the Rogue and with the new vehicle specials at Brown Honda of San Angelo, you can even save more money on your Midland ride!

CR-V vs. Rogue: Configurations 

On top of being the more affordable choice, the Honda CR-V also has five configurations for you to choose from while the Nissan Rogue only has four. With more choices, you can find the exact trim that matches your needs without having to spend extra money on optional packages! You can also consider higher trim levels since the base LX trim of the Honda SUV is cheaper.

CR-V vs. Rogue: Performance Specs

An SUV has to be extremely reliable, so you and your family or friends can get to all of the places you want to go to! Should you get the Honda CR-V or the Nissan Rogue then? At first glance, drivers might be amazed about the slightly larger engine in the 2021 Nissan Rogue. However, the Honda CR-V has turbo power that produces an outstanding fuel economy and towing capacity that you won’t find in the Rogue. See the performance specs for yourself below.

  • 179 lb-ft of torque
