2017 Nissan Rogue Sport vs Honda HR-V
There’s no doubt that the subcompact crossover SUV market is absolutely flooded these days. They are some of the most popular vehicles on the road all over the nation. It can be really hard, as such, to find one that’s the best for your needs. Some of the most popular models on the market are made by Nissan and Honda. Drivers swear by these brands as some of the most reliable, comfortable, and high-performing sport utility vehicles on the road.
Among the most popular models by these manufacturers are the Nissan Rogue and the Honda HR-V. Drivers in Stoughton, Randolph and Brockton are understandably curious as to which one is the best option to get them around town. Let’s look at a side-by-side comparison of the 2017 Nissan Rogue Sport vs Honda HR-V, as well as discovering where you can go to take a test drive!
Power and Performance
Power, performance and handling are of absolute importance when choosing the sport utility vehicle for you. When it comes down to power alone, the Rogue Sport comes out at the head of the pack. It delivers 141 horsepower and 147 pound-feet of torque, outscoring the HR-V’s base engine, which matches the horsepower but only delivers 127 pound-feet of torque.
Part of this performance is due to the gorgeous 19-inch aluminum wheels that just tear up the roads and give you supreme traction and control. The HR-V, on the other hand, gives you only 17-inch wheels which don’t have as wide a profile or the same kind of grip. You’ll also need fewer trips to the gas station with the Sport — it’s got a 15-gallon fuel tank while the HR-V’s tank is only 13 gallons in size.
Cabin and Convenience
The Rogue Sport really shines when it comes to cabin amenities and convenience features. The base trim level alone gives you hatchback controls right from the key fob, and you also get perimeter and approach lights, an outstanding safety feature when you’re approaching the car in nighttime parking lots. The HR-V doesn’t have these features at the base trim level. An illuminated glove box is also standard on the Sport, which isn’t available at all on the HR-V.
Comfort and Size
The Rogue Sport also has an edge in comfort and interior space. You’ll get 42.8 inches of legroom in the front passenger space, as compared to 41.2 inches of available space in the HR-V. In the back seat, the HR-V’s 54.5 inches of room don’t quite make it to the 55.7 available in the Rogue Sport. It seems like an inch isn’t much, but it’s noticeable, especially on long road trips.
