See for yourself in this 2017 Honda CR-V vs 2017 Nissan Rogue comparison.
One of the strengths of the 2017 CR-V is on the safety front, especially with its Honda Sensing suite of advanced safety and driver assistance technology, which comes standard in EX and above trims. Features of Honda Sensing includes Collision Mitigation Braking with Forward Collision Warning and pedestrian sensing capability, Road Departure Mitigation with Lane Departure Warning, Adaptive Cruise Control with low-speed follow and Lane Keeping Assist. Additional new driver-assistive technologies include the available Blind Spot Information, Rear Cross Traffic Monitor and Auto High Beam headlights.

Advantages of the 2017 Honda CR-V
The 2017 CR-V also offers the more impressive interior, with a multitude of premium features. The more spacious cabin, with top-in-class interior space and the best rear seat legroom in its class, features upgraded materials throughout, including a new soft-touch instrument panel and more intricately stitched seats. The 2017 CR-V EX comes standard with a 10-Way Adjustable Driver Seat, while the Rogue doesn't offer this feature. Also, the CR-V offers the latest in-vehicle connectivity and audio performance with a new generation of advanced technologies, including the available 7-inch touchscreen Display Audio interface with Android operating system, enabling you to be well-connected and entertained for any of your trips.
The new CR-V easily outmuscles the Rogue. A major improvement for 2017 is the CR-V's first ever turbocharged engine, a more powerful 1.5-liter DOHC, direct-injected and turbocharged in-line 4-cylinder powerplant, which is rated at 190 horsepower and delivers incredibly refined and responsive performance across the engine's full operating range (EX and higher). In comparison, the Rogue only manages 170 horsepower with its 2.5-liter I-4. Further enhancing the CR-V's performance is its smooth shifting and sporty continuously variable transmission (CVT) with Honda G-Shift control logic. Also, the all-new body and chassis design in the 2017 CR-V provides more agile and confident handling, greater refinement, additional ground clearance and superior overall versatility.
