Choose the Right Crossover SUV in Danbury: The 2018 Kia Sportage VS 2018 Honda CR-V

If you're in the market for a brand-new SUV and you've got your family in mind, we understand that every factor must be considered. It's an investment that will make a difference in your everyday life, ideally for the better. Fortunately, at Danbury Kia near Dutchess County, Carmel and Patterson, NY, we've compared two of the crossovers in the market today, the 2018 Kia Sportage and the 2018 Honda CR-V.

Compare Power and Performance of Sportage vs CR-V

  • The 2018 Kia Sportage has a towing capacity of 1650 pounds. This feat is impressive for a crossover, and beats out the Honda CR-V which can only tow up to 1500 pounds.
  • Each trim of the Kia Sportage comes in either front-wheel drive or performance all-wheel drive. Meanwhile, the Honda CR-V's front-wheel drive with an optional upgrade to all-wheel drive makes you pay for seamless driving.
  • The Kia Sportage can hold up to 16.4 gallons of fuel, while the Honda CR-V can only manage 14 gallons. A nearly 2.5-gallon difference, indeed, makes all the difference.

Safety and Modernity Comparison

  • Available heated front seats and a multi-adjustable driver's seat in the Kia beat out the Honda CR-V, which doesn't have an option for these features.
  • Keyless ignition is a highly-coveted convenience feature in the modern world. Unlike in the Honda CR-V, this feature comes standard in the Kia Sportage. 
  • Kia focuses on entertainment, with Satellite Radio coming standard. Meanwhile, it's only available in the Honda CR-V.

Warranty Comparison - Sportage vs CR-V

  • Warranties matter, and a good warranty is always a preference. The 2018 Kia Sportage comes with a basic 5-year/60,000-mile warranty and a 10-year/100,000-mile drivetrain warranty, as well as a 5-year/60,000-mile roadside assistance warranty. All of these extend much further than the Honda CR-V warranties. The Honda only comes with 3-year/36,000-mile basic and roadside assistance warranties and a 5-year/60,000-mile drivetrain warranty. That's a notable difference.
  • The Honda CR-V trim options include the LX, EX, EX-L and Touring. With the Kia Sportage, you can choose from EX, LX and SX—each of these can be in either front-wheel or all-wheel drivetrains, unlike the Honda models.

When it comes to performance, technology, safety and more, it's clear that the Kia Sportage is the ideal investment for you and your family.
