2016 Honda CR-V vs. 2017 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). Whether you pick the Honda CR-V or the Kia Sportage, it's going to cost you about the same. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Honda CR-V and the Kia Sportage have similar Destination Charges.

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. When looking at overall length, the Honda CR-V takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Kia Sportage.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Honda CR-V transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Kia Sportage.

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. The Honda CR-V has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Kia Sportage.

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