2017 Nissan Rogue Sport vs. 2017 Honda HR-V: Compare Cars

Small crossover utility vehicles have surged in popularity, and every carmaker is rolling out new entries. The new Nissan Rogue Sport gives the very popular compact crossover Rogue a smaller, more stylish sibling that's visually similar but is shorter, lower, and slightly more nimble. The very popular Honda HR-V is expected to be one of its strongest competitors.

Both are light-duty utility vehicles more suited to urban and suburban duties for couples or young families. Both offer optional all-wheel drive, and neither is among the fastest or sportiest in the growing market for small SUVs (despite the Rogue Sport's name). In character, the Nissan is conventional, while the Honda is more adventurous.

TCC’s Bottom Line
Think of the 2017 Honda HR-V as a Fit with all-wheel drive and a little more headroom. It's not as fun as it could be, but it makes a lot of sense. The 2017 Nissan Rogue Sport looks like a smart entry into the compact crossover segment, giving the automaker a two-prong approach to conquering buyers—even if it's not very sporty.
