2020 Nissan Rogue vs. 2019 Honda HR-V

KEY ROGUE SPORT ADVANTAGES

  • Intelligent Trace Control1 (I-TC) and Active Ride Control (ARC) – Rogue Sport comes standard with Intelligent Trace Control and Active Ride Control. Intelligent Trace Control helps enhance steering response and corning feel by applying brake pressure, and Active Ride Control automatically adjusts the throttle and applies brake pressure on rough road surfaces to help enhance ride quality. HR-V does not offer these features.
  • Available Intelligent Cruise Control2 (ICC) with Full-Speed Range and Hold (vs. no Full-Speed Range or Hold function) – Rogue Sport’s available Intelligent Cruise Control automatically adjusts the vehicle’s speed according to the flow of traffic, helping the vehicle to maintain a consistent following distance even when the speed of traffic varies.

HR-V’s available version of Intelligent Cruise Control does not offer either Full-Speed Range or Hold function.
  • Available Divide-N-Hide® Cargo System – In some Rogue Sport models, the floor of the cargo area can be raised, lowered, and divided to provide cargo-carrying flexibility and security. This feature is not available on any HR-V.
