Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat may find themselves a little more cramped in the Ford Bronco Sport than the Honda CR-V Hybrid. The Ford Bronco Sport will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Honda CR-V Hybrid.

Convenience
The Honda CR-V Hybrid requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Ford Bronco Sport, 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 Ford Bronco Sport or the Honda CR-V Hybrid, 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. The Destination Charge for the Ford Bronco Sport is much higher than that for the Honda CR-V Hybrid.

Dimensions
The Ford Bronco Sport is a little wider than the Honda CR-V Hybrid, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. If you go with the Ford Bronco Sport, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Honda CR-V Hybrid.

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

Powertrain
Due to its much higher torque, the Ford Bronco Sport does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Honda CR-V Hybrid.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Ford Bronco Sport and the Honda CR-V Hybrid. The Ford Bronco Sport has less cargo space than the Honda CR-V Hybrid, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The Ford Bronco Sport comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Honda CR-V Hybrid.
