Nissan Rogue Sport vs Honda HR-V
Compact SUVs like the Nissan Rogue Sport and Honda HR-V are smart choices for getting around Brockton, Randolph, and Stoughton, MA. They’re stylish, capable in rough weather, and deliver a smooth ride. Which one is right for you, though? To help you decide, Nissan 24 had them face off in this 2020 Nissan Rogue Sport vs. Honda HR-V comparison.
“Big things come in small packages” is a great way to sum up compact SUVs. The 2020 Nissan Rogue Sport interior lives up to this saying by offering more room than meets the eye. There’s seating for five and plenty of space to stretch out. When you’re behind the wheel, you’ll be able to kick back and relax with 42.8 inches of legroom. On the other hand, the Honda HR-V can feel like a bit of a tight squeeze. While it also offers seating for five, the front seats don’t have quite as much space with only 41.2 inches of legroom.
Each SUV is also built to carry lots of cargo. They feature lots of trunk space, plus folding second-row seats that can help you load more. The Nissan makes running errands easy by offering up to 62.3 cubic feet of cargo room. The Honda can’t quite carry as much with only 58.8 cubic feet of cargo room.
The 2020 Rogue Sport is also designed to protect your most precious cargo. It features eight airbags, including driver and front passenger knee airbags and side-curtain airbags that cover both rows of seats. There’s also tons of technology that can help prevent accidents. Driver assistance features give you more awareness during your drive by looking out for nearly every angle of your SUV. Some of the features that come standard include:
- Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection
- Blind Spot Warning
- Rear Automatic Braking
- High Beam Assist
- Intelligent Lane Intervention
The Honda HR-V also offers a series of driver assistance features as part of its Honda Sensing® system. However, Honda Sensing® isn’t available on the first few trim levels. The HR-V also may leave some of the interior less protected with only six airbags.
Both SUVs come with a Bluetooth® compatible infotainment system. Just sync your smartphone and you’ll be able to stream your favorite music and make hands-free calls. Each vehicle comes with a 5-inch LCD screen, but also offers a 7-inch touchscreen.
The 2020 Nissan Rogue Sport comes with more smartphone compatibility, though. Every trim level features Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™. It also includes voice recognition and hands-free text message assistant.
The Honda HR-V also offers a text message assistant, Apple CarPlay®, and Android Auto™, but none of them are available on the first few trims. Voice recognition isn’t offered until the top trim.
