Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Kia Sorento than in the Honda CR-V Hybrid, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Kia Sorento will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Honda CR-V Hybrid.
