Comparison Review

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 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Nissan Kicks, which has a much lower MSRP.

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

Performance
