Trying to decide between the 2021 Kia Sportage and the 2021 Honda CR-V? In this detailed comparison, we at Feldman Kia of Novi hope to help you do just that by showing you how these two popular models stack up against each other when it comes to performance, space, comfort, and technology.
Shoppers in the areas of Novi, Livonia, and Southfield, MI, should read this Kia Sportage vs. Honda CR-V comparison to see which model comes out on top!
The 2021 Kia Sportage offers a handful of impressive pieces of performance equipment to choose from, starting with a standard 181-horsepower 2.4L inline 4-cylinder engine. Swap this engine out for an available 2.0L turbocharged engine that pumps out a whopping 240 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque.
Ramp up your capabilities in this model even more with its available Dynamax™ All-Wheel Drive (AWD) system, which uses advanced electronic sensors to monitor road conditions. Using this data, this system automatically adjusts power distribution to give you the best possible grip on the road.
As for the 2021 Honda CR-V, you can also opt for a Real Time AWD system. However, you'll only have one type of gas engine to choose from. It's a turbocharged option, but it's only capable of producing 190 horsepower and 179 lb-ft of torque.
When shopping for a new ride, interior space and comfort are top priorities. Both the 2021 Kia Sportage and the Honda CR-V offer plenty of room for five passengers, but the Sportage gives you a bit more room up front with 41.5 inches of front legroom. The CR-V tops off at 41.3 inches of front legroom.
Both models have more than 60 cubic feet of cargo space when the rear seats are lowered, so you'll have plenty of room for luggage, camping gear, and the haul from your latest shopping spree.
One extra comfort feature that you won't get with the CR-V, though, is front-seat ventilation. In the Sportage, front passengers can keep cool during the hot summer months. In the CR-V, you'll just have to crack a window to let some extra air in.
One of the most exciting features aboard both of these models is their suite of safety features. You’ll find that the Kia Sportage and Honda CR-V are both designed with impressive automatic emergency braking functions. This technology will bring your model to a stop if it detects you’re coming up too quickly to the ride ahead.
If you’re looking for unique safety technology, though, you’re going to want the help of the Kia Sportage. That’s because this Kia vehicle comes equipped with a standard Driver Attention Warning (DAW). This technology will warn you if you’re showing signs of poor attention on the road, so it can warn you to take a break.
As you can see, the 2021 Kia Sportage comes out on top, while the Honda CR-V meets the bare minimum requirements. Now that you've had a taste of what the Sportage has to offer, it's time to get behind the wheel and experience it for yourself.
