Overview

The fuel efficiency of a vehicle is the determining factor of how much money you spend to run your car on a daily basis. If you are operating on a budget, you probably need to go for a vehicle that gives you more miles for the gallon. In this regard, the 2019 Nissan Rogue appears to stand out because the efficiency is high on both FWD and AWD. With the 2019 Nissan Rogue FWD, expect to achieve 33 mpg in the city and 35 mpg on the highway. If the same vehicle type whole ride on AWD, the estimated mpg would be 31 in the city and 34 on the highway.

   

The downside of the Honda CR-V is that even with a larger engine capacity of 2.4 liters vs. 2.0 liters of the Nissan Rogue, the mileage is considerably low. The FWD, in this case, delivers 26 city mpg and 32 highway mpg while the AWD delivers 25 city mpg and 31 highway mpg.

   
       

Fuel efficiency

A simple action such as the application of brakes is easy to take for granted but the Rogue system causes you to pay attention. With regenerative brakes in place, energy used for braking is redirected back into the car to be used for other functions. Since the CR-V does not have a regenerative braking system, it uses up a lot of energy and this weighs down on one's pockets.

   

You do not have to use up energy when you are not moving and the Nissan Rogue's intelligent system makes sure that it does not happen. When the car comes to a halt like in heavy traffic or at a stop sign, this car's engine will automatically switch off. This is the 2019 Nissan Rogue's contribution to fuel saving and pollution reduction. The vehicle automatically jolts to life if the sensors pick up from the driver that they are ready to drive on. The 2019 Honda CR-V lacks in its ability to start and stop as a fuel-saving process.

       

Interiors

    Interior   

When you enter both of these cars, there is nothing outstanding in either one of them. In fact, the 2019 Nissan Rogue and 2019 Honda CRV are best classified as conservative makes because of the low-key interiors. The Nissan Rogue is quite plain on the inside but you will not miss the unique orange hue of the attractive looking leather; this is, however, available for the Platinum Reserve interior package buyers. Leave aside the trims and let us focus on the inbuilt infotainment system of the 2019 Nissan Rogue; A 7-inch screen that offers both Apple and Android auto CarPlay compatibility.  Also on offer to keep you busy when you ride on the Nissan Rogue is a 4G LTE that is Wi-Fi compatible. You will not find all this on the CV-R's interior. Instead, brace yourself for a sight of fake wood trims that appear rather outdated for a 2019 model.

   

Safety

The last twenty years or so have recorded a high number of children and infants who died after they were left in the car. These deaths are usually by accident and the 2019 Nissan Rogue now have systems to ensure that it does not happen. Have you come to a place where you must leave the children in the car to run an errand? Well, before you step out of the car, the Rogue's sensors will pick up the ignition switch off and sound an alarm. With this action, you are reminded to open the rear door so that there is enough air circulating in and out of the vehicle. The CR-V is limited in these rear door alarms and it is up to the driver to remember to open the rear door.

   

The 2019 Nissan Rogue has an automatic rear braking system that monitors activity behind the car and engages the brakes if an obstacle is identified. The Honda CR-V, on the other hand, relies on driver alertness when parking because it is not fitted with any sensors that aid rear motion.

Like the 2019 Honda CR-V, the 2019 Nissan Rogue has front and side airbags for the driver and front passenger, knee airbags for the driver, side airbags to arrest head impact, traction control, blind spot monitoring, and rear cross path sensors to reduce the probability of accidents.

The Verdict


Judging from the features we have highlighted above, plus studies on new cars, JD Power concludes that Nissan car models are generally better performers than Honda vehicles (JD Power). In a news feature by the Chicago Tribune, it has been established that the more vehicles there are on the road and most of them driven by distracted drivers, the more accidents there will be (Chicago Tribune). Go for the 2019 Nissan Rogue and stay out of the statistics!
