The 2018 Honda CR-V: The Top of its Class

What you need in an SUV is entirely dependent on who you're buying it for. If you're shopping for the rest of the family, then you have a lot more to consider: safety features, cargo space, entertainment, the list goes on and on. The Toyota RAV4 and the Nissan Rogue certainly have what it takes when it comes to a powerful SUV with towing capabilities, but for the safest and most convenient-to-use SUV, it doesn't get any better than the 2018 Honda CR-V.

2018 Toyota RAV4

2018 Honda CR-V vs 2018 Toyota RAV4

  • Despite the powerful feel of the Toyota RAV4, the Honda CR-V outperforms this crossover with an impressive 184 horsepower and 172 pound-feet of torque, versus the RAV4's 176 horsepower and 172 pound-feet.
  • When it comes to the roomier SUV for your family, the Honda CR-V makes up for what the RAV4 lacks. The Honda CR-V has 75.8 cubic feet maximum of cargo space in it, which is a full cubic foot more than the space of the RAV4.
  • Add to that an impressive overall passenger volume of 105.9 cubic feet, versus the RAV4's 101 cubic feet and you have yourself an SUV that your kids will feel more at home in as you drive to see the in-laws in Baltimore.
  • In addition to space, you'll want to know that your family is safe and comfortable in your new SUV, which is why the CR-V has a few extra convenience features, unavailable in standard modes of the Toyota RAV4 such as a stereo anti-theft system, power driver's seat with lumbar support, floor mats, automatic climate control, and alloy wheels.
  • The Honda CR-V has a higher score on the front driver and passenger crash tests by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration than that of the RAV4. Whether you're driving to Annapolis or across the country, you want the SUV with the higher safety rating.

2018 Honda CR-V vs. 2018 Nissan Rogue

  • Though the Rogue has more front leg and hip room, the Honda CR-V provides a much roomier experience for your passengers with 40 inches of rear legroom (against the Nissan Rogue's 37 inches) and 39 inches of rear headroom (versus the 38 inches of the Rogue).
  • Automatic climate control comes standard on all trims of the Honda CR-V, but it is unavailable for the basic model of the Nissan Rogue.
  • Whatever essentials you're carrying, the Honda CR-V provides you with ample space with th 75.8 cubic feet of overall cargo volume. The Nissan Rogue has about 70 cubic feet of cargo volume. When you're carrying groceries and passengers, from Laurel to Ellicott City, you'll notice the difference in space.
  • However, sometimes the cargo space doesn't cut it for what you're transporting. That's why the Honda CR-V has a maximum towing capacity of 1,500-pounds, whereas the Nissan Rogue has about a 1,000-pound towing capacity.
  • While both vehicles were rated as Top Safety Picks in 2018, by the Insurance Institute for Highway and Safety*, the Honda CR-V was given a higher rating on the quality of its child safety anchors. If you have a little one, their safety and security are of the utmost importance to you, so why not choose the SUV with the better safety option for them.
