For years, the Honda CR-V has been a better compact crossover SUV than the Nissan Rogue. And the 2020 model-year editions are no exception. The CR-V is the recipient of certain changes that make it better than ever before, while the Rogue remains virtually unchanged from the previous year.

For 2020, the Honda CR-V now has a single engine, which is a turbocharged 1.5-liter I4 engine that produces 190 horsepower and 179 lb-ft of torque and is tied to a CVT. Similarly, the Nissan Rogue has an I4 workhorse with a CVT. However, the CR-V engine is turbocharged and produces 20 more horsepower and 4 more lb-ft of torque than the Rogue’s engine.

The drivetrain of the 2020 Honda CR-V is better-performing than that of the 2020 Rogue. Although both drivetrain configurations drone at high speeds, the higher level of output from the CR-V engine means that it has better accelerating ability than that of the Rogue. In addition, the CVT on the Honda vehicle is noted as one of the smoothest-performing ones in the compact crossover SUV market.

Both the 2020 CR-V and the 2020 Rogue have a collection of driver-assistance technologies. This particular model year welcomes the Honda Sensing suite as standard on all trims, with technologies that comprise adaptive cruise control, auto high beams, a blind spot monitoring system with rear cross-traffic alert, forward collision warning, collision mitigation braking, lane departure warning, lane keeping assist, and road departure mitigation. Road departure mitigation, forward collision warning, auto high beams, and adaptive cruise control are missing on the Nissan Rogue.
