2017 Honda CR-V vs 2017 Kia Sportage

If you have been thinking about a crossover for your next vehicle, then you may be overwhelmed with options. Well not to worry, because if you were stuck considering offerings from both Kia and Honda, then we may be able to help. Use our 2017 Honda CR-V vs 2017 Kia Sportage comparison to find out which model will be better for you.

To see what these two models look like at the top end, we will be comparing their top-level trims against each other. For the CR-V that means the Touring trim and for the Sportage that means the SX trim. As these are both essentially luxury trims, you can expect to find features like dual-automatic climate control, leather seats, heated front seats, and a rearview camera all standard, but what you don’t find standard may just surprise you.

How does the 2017 CR-V Touring compare to the Sportage SX?

When you are considering a crossover, fuel efficiency should never be far from your mind. According to EPA estimates, the CR-V Touring goes far above and beyond the efficiency promised from the Sportage SX.* The figures above are for the front-wheel drive models, but both crossovers also offer all-wheel drive as an option.

Interior room is also probably important to you, and here the CR-V Touring outshines the Sportage SX once again. Not only does the CR-V offer a few more cubic-feet of passenger room, but it also offers over 15 cubic-feet of extra maximum cargo volume.

Lastly, things like a power liftgate and memory seats, may seem like minor conveniences, but they really do add up. Keep in mind that these are the top trims for both models that we are talking about here, and for that reason, it seems egregious that the Sportage SX excludes these features that have been available on crossovers for many years.

If the CR-V has yet to win your heart, then you should go to your nearest Honda dealer and see one for yourself. If you live in the Lafayette area, then you can head on over to Bob Rohrman Honda, and we’ll take care of you. We can even put you behind the wheel in a test drive so you can see and feel everything that the CR-V has to offer for yourself.
