It's time for your family to find a new SUV, but where do you start? The 2021 Nissan Rogue and Honda CR-V are two top contenders in their class, so we'll show you how they stack up against each other.

If you have any additional questions about the right ride for you, just reach out to our team at Watermark Nissan of Marion. We are happy to assist our Marion, Herrin, and Carbondale, IL, neighbors any way we can.

Space for the Whole Family

When looking for a new family-friendly SUV, one of the most important factors to consider is cabin space. A roomy interior means your kids can sit comfortably in the back without arguing over who's elbowing who.


Seating for five and rear headroom over 39 inches in the 2021 Nissan Rogue and Honda CR-V mean your little ones will be treated to a big space. However, you and your partner may prefer the extra room the Rogue has up front:

Nissan Rogue

Front Headroom: 41.1 inches

Front Legroom: 43.3 inches

Honda CR-V

Front Headroom: 40.1 inches

Front Legroom: 41.3 inches

As you can see, even taller drivers are sure to appreciate the extra inches in the Rogue.

A Safe and Protected Journey

Nothing is more important than keeping your children out of harm's way, so the 2021 Nissan Rogue and Honda CR-V come standard with the following technologies:

  • Intelligent Forward Collision Warning
  • Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection
  • Lane Departure Warning

These systems keep you alert on the unpredictable highway and can even bring you to a complete stop if a frontal collision seems imminent.

Of course, you can never be too safe, so the Rogue also offers Blind Spot Warning and Rear Cross Traffic Alert standard as well. It keeps an eye on your side blind zones on the highway and when in reverse to ensure you're on your way safely.

Unfortunately, if you want these comforts in the CR-V, you'll need to select a higher trim level, since it's not a standard feature.

A Simplified Commute

Whether you're taking the kids to school or jetting off to work, the 2021 Nissan Rogue will make the journey as simple as possible. Through ProPILOT Assist with Navi-link, your SUV will maintain a set speed and following distance between you and the car ahead while also working to keep you centered in your lane.

The best part is this available system pairs to your navigational system to slow you down when your exit ramp or a turn in the road approaches. The result is a relaxing ride every time you're behind the wheel.

The Honda CR-V does come standard with Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC). However, a more advanced system like ProPILOT Assist is not available, so you won't be treated to those amenities.

Nissan Rogue vs Honda CR-V: Which SUV Will You Choose?

Despite the many similarities between the Rogue and CR-V, we think drivers from Marion, Herrin, and Carbondale, Illinois, will prefer what the 2021 Nissan Rogue has to offer.

Don't just take our word for it, though. Stop by Watermark Nissan of Marion today to take a test drive of this family-friendly SUV!
