2020 Kia Sportage vs 2020 Honda CR-V | Harlingen, TX
The midsize SUV market is highly competitive with plenty of options offering leading safety, efficiency, affordability, and comfort for families and solo drivers. Two of the hottest and most capable entrants on the market are the 2020 Kia Sportage and the 2020 Honda CR-V. But when both SUVs offer so much, how can you determine which is the better deal? Compare the two side by side to easily see how the Kia Sportage leaves the Honda CR-V in the dust.
If performance is important to you (maybe for towing a small trailer on your next family trip or simply because you need something reliable as your daily driver), then you will want to go with the 2020 Sportage. While the base engine powering the Sportage is fairly similar in output to the engine in the 2020 CR-V, only the Sportage offers an optional 2.0-liter turbocharged inline four-cylinder engine, which serves up 240 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. Those are both improvements — 50 more horsepower and 81 more lb-ft of torque — over the max output of the CR-V.
Kia stands by its products more confidently than Honda. For example, the Kia Sportage boasts a basic warranty that lasts for 60 months or 60,000 miles while the Honda CR-V comes with just 36 months or 36,000 miles of coverage. Plus, the powertrain in the Sportage is backed for a whopping 10 years or 100,000 miles while the warranty in the CR-V tops out at five years or 60,000 miles.
Despite offering greater performance and a much more extensive warranty, the 2020 Kia Sportage is priced more competitively than the 2020 Honda CR-V. If you are on a tight budget, go with the Sportage; its base model is priced almost $1,200 less than the base CR-V.*
