2015 Kia Sorento vs. 2014 Honda CR-V Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Kia Sorento offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Honda CR-V. The Kia Sorento offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Honda CR-V, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Kia Sorento as you will with the Honda CR-V, 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 Kia Sorento will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Honda CR-V, which has a much lower MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Kia Sorento will cost more in terms of transportation costs than the Honda CR-V.

Dimensions
Since the Kia Sorento is much wider than the Honda CR-V, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Kia Sorento, which is slightly longer than the Honda CR-V.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the Kia Sorento does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Honda CR-V.

Handling
The Kia Sorento has a smaller turning radius than the Honda CR-V, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Kia Sorento is clearly the choice over the Honda CR-V for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Kia Sorento greatly out-muscles the Honda CR-V.

Utility
The Kia Sorento offers greater seating capacity than the Honda CR-V, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries in the Kia Sorento as you will in the Honda CR-V.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Kia Sorento than that of the Honda CR-V.
