My friend was interested in the Honda CRV but I convinced him to test drive the Rogue because I have been driving the same Nissan SUV for many years. I also drove the Rogue and I was impressed with how quiet it was even at 80 mph. We test drove the CRV and the interior was noisy when driving 60 mph and the styling was not as slick as the Rogue. Although he was the one looking for a car we ended up each buying one! We bought the S model but upgraded to leather seats and they look very nice.
Quiet drive, tight turning radius, center console for storage, purse hook in the back, good acceleration for a 4 cylinder,
I wish the back seats fold down completely flat. A small drawer (like an ashtray) to put change/keys, etc that is hidden would be nice. Automatic back hatch release and back window that opens without having to open the door. A larger back window for visibility
