Reliability & Quality 2023 Nissan Rogue The Honda CR-V, a prior-generation model, did not make it into the top three models for the compact SUV category in the J.D. With only one powertrain for the entire line, the Nissan Rogue offers buyers great horsepower and torque at every price point thanks to its Variable Compression Engine.
Unlike the 2023 Honda CR-V and several other crossover SUVs, the 2023 Nissan Rogue does not offer a hybrid. An updated hybrid powertrain is the highest-end model in the crossover SUV class–and it is pricier than what the 2023 Nissan Rogue offers.
The 2023 Honda CR-V offers two hybrid-powered trim levels, both powered by 2.0-liter hybrid engines generating 204 hp at the highway speed limit.
The updated Hybrid Powertrain is the most powerful powertrain available on 2023 Honda CR-V, providing total system outputs of 204 horsepower and 247 pound-feet of torque.
While increased horsepower is a nice perk, the main draw to an upgraded hybrid powertrain is the increased fuel economy. The 2.0-liter turbocharged three-cylinder is a little less powerful than the CR-Vs hybrid powertrain, particularly when it comes to generating torque.
The 2023 Toyota RAV4 also offers a hybrid variant, with both powered by 2.5-liter engines, which produce 219 combined system net horsepower.
The 2023 Nissan Rogue comes standard with a 1.5L 4-cylinder that produces 201 horsepower, the 2023 Honda CR-V has a turbocharged 1.5L 4-cylinder that produces 190 horsepower, and the 2023 Toyota RAV4 has a 2.5L 4-cylinder engine that produces 203 horsepower. The Nissan Rogue is nearly 2 inches longer than the BRZ, and the Rogue is a half-inch taller.
Larger than it was, equipped with grittier styling, featuring next-generation infotainment and safety tech, available with a souped-up hybrid powertrain, and promising an even more exciting driving experience, the 2023 Honda CR-V is likely to prove just as popular as it is ever been.
Honda CR-V Sport Touring The Sport Touring trim includes all of the features found on the CR-V EX-L, plus the hybrid powertrain, standard all-wheel drive, Sport drive mode, and 19-inch black alloy wheels. The 2023 Toyota RAV4 offers an 11-speaker JBL(r) surround-sound audio system, configurable via the 10.5″ central touchscreen.
The Nissan Rogue 2023s ADAS package, including Honda Sensing, has lane-departure warning and lane-keeping assist. Also, according to Honda, the optional four-wheel-drive (AWD) system is more effective in snow and dirt, and it now sends as much as half the engines turbocharged output to the rear wheels.
