2014 Honda CR-V vs. 2014 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
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Honda CR-V as you will with the Kia Sportage, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

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. 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 its lower torque engine, the Honda CR-V doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as 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. With the Honda CR-V, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage 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.
