2020 Kia Sportage vs. 2020 Honda CR-V | Mission, TX
Are you shopping for a small to midsize SUV for your family? You likely have safety and affordability at the top of your list. Or perhaps you’re an adventurous young professional or a fan of the outdoors who needs a capable SUV suited to nights out on the town or treks off the beaten path. No matter your walk of life, an SUV like the 2020 Kia Sportage or the 2020 Honda CR-V would likely suit you. But which is the superior vehicle?
When you compare the two side by side, the 2020 Sportage is the clear winner. Here’s why:
Purchasing a new vehicle can be expensive. Saving a couple of thousand dollars on the overall MSRP is crucial when you’re on a budget. The new 2020 Kia Sportage starts nearly $1,200 less than the new Honda CR-V.*
Kia also offers the superior warranty for its new SUV. The 2020 Sportage boasts a 60-month or 60,000-mile basic warranty, compared to just 36 months or 36,000 miles in the 2020 CR-V. The powertrain warranty for the Kia Sportage is also twice as long at 10 years (or 100,000 miles), compared to five years (or 60,000 miles) for the Honda CR-V.
While the standard engine powering the 2020 Kia Sportage is fairly evenly matched with the inline four-cylinder engine with turbocharger powering every trim of the 2020 Honda CR-V, the Sportage has a trick up its sleeve. Its available 2.0-liter turbocharged inline four-cylinder engine cranks out 240 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. That is 50 horsepower above the max for the Honda CR-V and a whopping 81 more lb-ft of torque.
Both the 2020 Kia Sportage and 2020 Honda CR-V are exceptionally safe SUVs. While there’s no clear winner, it’s important to point out that you’re in good hands either way. For its part, the Sportage makes Automatic Emergency Braking and Lane Keeping Assist standard.
