2015 Honda CR-V vs. 2015 Kia Sportage Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Honda CR-V offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Kia Sportage, with comparable head- and legroom. The Kia Sportage offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Honda CR-V, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

Convenience
The Honda CR-V requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Kia Sportage, making it more convenient to drive.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The Honda CR-V is somewhat more expensive than the Kia Sportage. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the Honda CR-V will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Kia Sportage.

Dimensions
The Honda CR-V is a little narrower than the Kia Sportage, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Honda CR-V, which is slightly longer than the Kia Sportage.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Honda CR-V and the Kia Sportage are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

Handling
The Honda CR-V has a larger turning radius than the Kia Sportage, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Kia Sportage is clearly the choice over the Honda CR-V for pulling heavy loads. In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the Honda CR-V and the Kia Sportage.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Honda CR-V and the Kia Sportage.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Honda CR-V is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Kia Sportage.
