2017 Nissan Rogue Sport vs 2017 Honda HR-V

The world of sport utility vehicles has a lot more variety than simply which brands make which models. Within the SUV class, you have different shapes and sizes, all of which can cater to different needs. While full-size SUVs serve a valuable purpose to many people, not everyone has the need to seat more than five people or carry vast loads of cargo. Sometimes, all you need is something that can give you just enough room and capability to make your daily life and any weekend excursions you take easier and more enjoyable. Whether you live in the city or out in the country, small SUVs or crossovers still have a lot to offer. Which one is right for you? Let's look at the 2017 Nissan Rogue Sport vs the 2017 Honda HR-V. We will look at the base model of each vehicle for the sake of this comparison, and while these automakers are both heavyweights in the industry with worldwide reach, the Rogue Sport pulls ahead in certain areas.

More cargo capacity for your adventures in the Rogue Sport

The 2017 Nissan Rogue Sport is a new vehicle that was specifically designed to navigate the hustle and bustle of a crowded city, but that doesn't mean it wasn't made for an adventure. If you want to head off to the great outdoors at a moment's notice, you can fold down the rear seats of the Rogue Sport and open it up to 61.1 cubic feet of cargo space for your gear. The HR-V does not offer quite as much room. If you do choose to scour the world in your Rogue Sport, you will be treated to standard SiriusXM® Satellite Radio, which gives you that much more in the way of entertainment to enjoy. This is not available in the HR-V. The horsepower and fuel economy numbers are comparable, but when it comes down to more space for your items and more entertainment for your ride, the Rogue Sport wins out.
