2017 Kia Sportage vs Honda CR-V

There aren't too many vehicles on the market today like the 2017 Kia Sportage and the Honda CR-V.

These two compact SUVs are way ahead of their class when it comes to categories such as passenger room, engine performance, and technology. In other words, they're perfect for a wide variety of drivers in Langhorne, Levittown, and Philadelphia-from the family-man to the outdoors-woman and beyond! That's why our team at McCafferty Kia of Langhorne wrote this Kia Sportage vs. Honda CR-V comparison.

Interior Dimensions: Kia Sportage vs Honda CR-V

All in all, the Sportage gives you and your passengers 98.6 cubic feet of cabin room. That's 37.6 inches of front headroom, 41.5 inches of front legroom, 57.1 inches of front shoulder room, 54.3 inches of front hip room, 37.9 inches of rear headroom, 38.2 inches of rear leg room, more than 55 inches of second shoulder room, and about 51.2 inches of second hip room. Get ready to stretch out and relax, yeah?

While the CR-V offers comparable measurements in terms of headroom, legroom, and shoulder room, its severely lacking in rear hip room-e're talking about merely 49.5 inches, as opposed to Kia's 51.2!

Engine Power: 2017 Sportage vs 2017 CR-V

Standard Kia Sportage trims like the LX and the EX run on a 2.4L engine that delivers up to 181 horsepower as well as some impressive torque ratings; or, you could upgrade to the available 2.0L model for up to 240 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. So, you'd better get ready to rev your engine and hit the highway!

On the other hand, the Honda CR-V's 1.5L engine simply isn't cutting it in our book. Significantly less than 200 horsepower? Merely 179 lb-ft of torque at 2,000 RPM? What is this thing, some sort of sedan?

High-Tech Features: Kia & Honda

Finally, we've arrived at the technology section-this is where the 2017 Kia Sportage really excels, right?

Here's a brief overview of merely a few of its many innovative safety, info, and entertainment systems:

  • Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB)
  • Smart Power Liftgate™
  • Blind-Spot Detection
  • Lane Departure Warning System
  • Lane Change Assist
  • Front Parking Assist
  • Rear Parking Assist
  • Android Auto™
  • Apple CarPlay™
  • Pandora®, Yelp®, Google Search, etc. 

We must say that the 2017 Honda CR-V really steps up to the plate in this category. It gives you plenty of tech innovations that can compete with those listed above: the Blind Spot Information System (BSI), Android Auto™, Apple CarPlay™, etc. This Honda isn't quite as good as its Kia counterpart, but it's certainly close!
