Crossover SUVs may just be the perfect vehicle for drivers on the roads of Doylestown, Philadelphia, and Warminster. After all, they offer great performance, solid fuel economy, plenty of room for passengers and gear, solid technology, and best of all, traction for those tough Pennsylvania winters.

Among the best crossovers on the rod today are the 2019 Nissan Rogue and the 2019 Honda CR-V. With so much to enjoy in both, how can you possibly choose between them? Check out the battle of the crossover SUVs in this detailed comparison brought to you by Fred Beans Nissan and see which is better overall!

Rogue vs CR-V:  Performance

The 2019 Nissan Rogue is standardly equipped with a 2.5L 4-cylinder engine, front-wheel drivetrain, and Xtronic CVT® (Continuously Variable Transmission). This power trio gets exceptional mileage with an EPA-estimated 33 highway / 26 city MPG1 due in part to the standard Eco/Sport Mode Shifter.

For even better efficiency, you can opt for the Rogue's available hybrid power train which pairs a 2.0L engine with an electric motor and intelligent dual clutch system. This system achieves a whopping EPA-estimated 35 highway / 33 city MPG.1

As for the 2018 Honda CR-V, you'll have a slightly smaller 2.4L 4-cylinder engine leading the way. This engine, like Rogue's, is also standardly paired with a front-wheel drivetrain and a CVT. However, you won't have a hybrid powertrain to opt for.

Rogue vs CR-V: Safety

Whether you're hauling a cabin full of cargo or have the whole family packed in for a trip, you want to ensure that everything and everyone on board is safe and secure. Luckily, the Nissan Rogue delivers with Class-Exclusive standard advanced features like Blind Spot Warning2 and Rear Cross Traffic Alert3.

The Rogue also offers up a class-exclusive Intelligent Around® View Monitor4 with its intuitive Nissan Intelligent Mobility™ bundle. This feature provides a handy 360-degree view of your vehicle's surroundings right on your infotainment display.

Unfortunately, you'll complete miss out on this feature in the 2019 Honda CR-V. Additionally, you'll have to upgrade trim levels in order to access the other features whereas they just come with Rogue at no extra cost.

Rogue vs CR-V: Technology 

As new models, the Nissan Rogue and the Honda CR-V have plenty to offer when it comes to the newest technology features on the market. Both vehicles come standardly equipped with a smart infotainment that provide a variety of features geared towards convenience including Bluetooth® audio streaming and hands-free phone calling.

The Rogue, however, takes this infotainment system to the next level with a standard 7-inch touchscreen and standard smartphone app integration with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™. Access and enjoy all of your favorite smartphone apps right from the infotainment screen.

The CR-V's standard infotainment screen is only five inches in size and is not controlled by touch. You'll also have to upgrade from the base trim level in order to access Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™.

Nissan Rogue vs Honda CR-V: Which One?

As you can see, we have a clear winner. While the Honda CR-V has a few exciting features, the Nissan Rogue takes the cake when it comes to performance, safety, and technology. This isn't all the Rogue has to offer SUV drivers in Doylestown, Philadelphia, and Warminster, though.
