2016 Nissan Rogue vs. 2016 Honda HR-V

The crossover segment has exploded in recent years, leading many Regina and Swift Current drivers to become unsure of which model is right for them. They often come down to either the 2016 Nissan Rogue or the 2016 Honda HR-V, so we conducted a competitive comparison to make sure that the Rogue still comes out on top.

Interior Space

The 2016 Nissan Rogue is one of the only crossovers on the market that manages to offer both a sleek, agile exterior and a generously-sized cabin. In fact, most of its interior measurements come in at the front of the pack:

  • Best-in-Class Front Headroom: Enjoy up to 1057 mm (41.6 in) in the Rogue vs. just 997 mm (39.2 in) in the 2016 Honda HR-V.
  • Best-in-Class Cargo Room with Rear Seats Up: Even with all seats folded, the 2016 Rogue takes up to 1,112 L of cargo. The HR-V accommodates only 428 L.

The Rogue also boasts an exclusive EZ Flex seating system. Other crossovers allow you to fold the 2nd-row seats flat; the Rogue lets you recline them, slide them, or even tilt them forward for convenient access to the optional third row.


The 2016 Nissan Rogue isn’t just far roomier than the cramped 2016 Honda HR-V – Regina and Swift Current drivers will also find that their interior space is complemented by a whole range of innovative standard and available features, including:

  • Class-Exclusive Divide-n-Hide Cargo System: Keeping all of your belongings organized can be tricky in crossovers like the 2016 HR-V, but the Rogue offers up to 18 different cargo con?gurations, plus the ability to keep everything safely out of sight.
  • Class Exclusive Around View Monitor: Uses several advanced cameras to provide a birds-eye view of your Rogue and the area surrounding it, allowing you to maneuver easily in tight or crowded environments.
  • Zero-Gravity Seats: Inspired by NASA engineering, these exceptionally supportive seats have been designed to simulate out-of-this-world comfort during your regular morning commute.


The 2016 Nissan Rogue might be more spacious and technologically-advanced than the 2016 Honda HR-V, but where does it stand it terms of its powertrain?

  • Power: The Rogue draws upon an impressive 170 horsepower and 175 lb-ft of torque from a 2.5L 4-cylinder engine, while the HR-V falters with a meagre output of just 158 horsepower and 138 lb-ft of torque from its 2.0L 4-cylinder engine.
  • Transmission: The 2016 Rogue comes standard with an Xtronic CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) with Sport mode that offers smooth and fuel-efficient “fun-to-drive” performance. The 2016 HR-V comes standard with a 6-speed manual transmission and has a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) available for an upgraded price.

The 2016 Nissan Rogue Stands Head and Shoulders Above the 2016 Honda HR-V
