  • When all is said in done about feature and functionality, what it really comes down to is price, and the Rogue boasts a lower starting price than the CR-V.
  • The Rogue sports an integrated lip rear spoiler, which reduces drag and increases fuel efficiency. The CR-V does not have a spoiler.
  • LED daytime running lights project light more uniformly than non-LED lights, maximizing visibility and efficiency. The Rogue comes standard with this high-output lights; the CR-V doesn't.

  • Whether you've concerned about the environment, your wallet or your time spent at the pump, you'll be pleased with the Rogue's superior fuel economy in comparison to the RAV4.
