If you’re looking for a new crossover in the Detroit Metro area, the 2015 Nissan Rogue might be on your mind, but if you’re concerned with horsepower, we suggest you give it some more thought. The 2015 Honda CR-V bests the Rogue on horsepower and fuel economy as well as features. Let’s take a closer look.
Honda Gives Drivers More
We already mentioned that the CR-V boasts better efficiency and power ratings than the Rogue, but what fun would it be if we didn’t give you the numbers for comparison? While the 2015 CR-V 2WD earns an EPA-estimated 34 highway mpg* to the Rogue’s 33 highway mpg, it also offers drivers a superior level of both power and torque. The Rogue manages 170 hp and 175 lb-ft of torque to the CR-V’s 185 hp and 181 lb-ft of torque.
The idea that an engine can either be more efficient or more powerful is an old one, but Honda has proven that that simply isn’t the case here. Honda’s powertrain delivers superior power and efficiency. To round things off with the powertrain, the CR-V can tow as much as 1,500 pounds when you need it to, while the Toyota can only tow 1,000 pounds.
And then there are the features; the 2015 Honda CR-V comes with a suite of great amenities, giving drivers access to Bluetooth HandsFreeLink, a touchscreen infotainment system, a rearview camera, and more. The Rogue, on the other hand, doesn’t even include floor mats as standard.
