Nissan Rogue vs. Toyota RAV4 and Honda CR-V: Compare compact crossovers near Greenville, SC.

Embarking on its third generation, Nissan's best-selling SUV rolls into 2021 with a sharp new look, roomier, more versatile accommodations, re-tuned performance, and more amenities than ever. The Nissan Rogue has been a compelling option among compact crossovers since the beginning, but with its most recent reimagining, it's playing to win in the industry's largest class. With upgrades to nearly every aspect of the driving experience, Rogue checks off boxes that competitors can't. To see what we mean, let's take a look at how it stacks up to two of the segment's most prominent nameplates, the Toyota RAV4 and Honda CR-V.

2021 Nissan Rogue vs. Toyota RAV4

2021 Nissan Rogue Anderson SC


When designing the all-new 2021 Rogue, Nissan set out with the goal of making life easier by focusing on functionality, versatility, and comfort. It started by reorganizing the cabin to provide roomier accommodations for both passengers and cargo. Rogue offers more front headroom and legroom than the Toyota RAV4. And when it comes to those bigger weekend errands, Simpsonville drivers will benefit from Rogue's more spacious max cargo capacity.

In terms of ride comfort, Rogue easily out-strides the RAV4. Nissan's astronaut-inspired Zero Gravity seats are well-bolstered and cushioned yet supportive, making them a perfect place to relax on the ride home from work or while passing the miles on a long road trip.

New Toyota RAV4

Standard and Available Features

The 2021 Nissan Rogue offers more standard features, more-accessible available features, plus a few amenities that RAV4 doesn't offer at all.

Rogue's base trim level comes with 17-inch alloy wheels, rear air vents, a USB and USB-C port, and a NissanConnect® 8-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration. The RAV4 comes with a 7-inch touchscreen and doesn't even offer USB-C as an option. The other features require climbing the trim ladder.

Rogue also offers available technologies like a head-up display, tri-zone automatic climate control, quilted upholstery, and wireless Apple CarPlay. These aren't available on any RAV4 trim.

Advanced Safety Technologies

Both Rogue and RAV4 include several advanced driver-assistance technologies on the base trim. However, Rogue's list is a little more robust, offering standard features like Blind Spot Warning, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Rear Sonar, Intelligent Driver Alertness, and Rear Automatic Braking.

And while both models offer adaptive cruise control, only Rogue offers ProPILOT Assist. This semi-autonomous driving system works in stop-and-go traffic and can even negotiate an off-ramp when equipped with available Navi-link.

2021 Nissan Rogue vs. Honda CR-V

New Nissan Rogue Easley

Accommodations and Utility

In addition to providing more front headroom and legroom than CR-V, the Nissan Rogue also delivers a more pleasant driving experience thanks to class-exclusive standard Zero Gravity seats and more intuitive controls. When it comes to max cargo space, Rogue and CR-V are about even, with Honda having a 1.7 cubic-foot edge. But in terms of overall convenience and versatility, Rogue takes the lead. Nissan offers an abundance of clever storage options, including a spacious center console and the two-tiered Divide-N-Hide cargo management system. Rogue's doors open almost a full 90-degrees for easier loading of child car seats, and with remote-folding rear seats, max cargo capacity is available at the pull of a lever.

Standard and Available Features

The Nissan Rogue comes standard with an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration, rear HVAC vents, and a USB and USB-C port. Plus, Anderson SC drivers can upgrade to a larger 9-inch display, additional USB and USB-C ports, and wireless Apple CarPlay connectivity. The Honda HR-V's base trim is comparatively spartan, with just a 5-inch central display. Even moving up the trim levels, HR-V's only infotainment option is a 7-inch touchscreen, and USB-C and wireless smartphone integration aren't available.

New CR-V near Easley, SC

Advanced Features

Other available Rogue amenities not found on CR-V include a head-up display, tri-zone automatic climate control, rear sunshades, Divide-N-Hide® cargo system, a fully digital 12-inch gauge cluster, and a Dual Panel Panoramic Moonroof.

Advanced Safety Technologies

Rogue offers more standard advanced driver aids than the CR-V, including blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, rear-passenger safe exit system, and rear automatic emergency braking. The latter two aren't even available on CR-V.

Stepping up just one trim from the base level, Piedmont shoppers can get a 360-degree Surround View camera system, something unavailable for CR-V. Rogue also offers available Blind Spot Intervention and ProPILOT semi-autonomous driving, also not found on CR-V trim.
