The new 2020 Kia Sportage and the 2020 Honda CR-V are two rival SUVs that our customers often pit against one another. To help you figure out which model is the better buy, our dealers at Jake Sweeney Kia have provided a side-by-side comparison.


When you check out the high-end engines in both of these vehicles, you’ll find that the Kia Sportage far outperforms the Honda CR-V. The Honda model does come with an available hybrid powertrain, but it only provides a maximum of 212 horsepower.

Meanwhile, our top-end Kia SUV supplies remarkable 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder engine that produces 240 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. If you’re looking for some serious muscle behind the wheel, the Kia Sportage is the way to go.


Connectivity and comfort are important for any driver, and both of these vehicles have plenty to offer. However, baseline models of the Honda CR-V only offer a compact 5.0-inch infotainment screen that is not touchactivated and doesn’t integrate with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™. You can always get a bigger touchscreen as well as smartphone integration in higher trims, but you’ll have to pay extra.

Meanwhile, the Kia Sportage comes standard with a sprawling 8.0-inch infotainment touchscreen that does offer smartphone compatibility and is touch-activated. Couple that with a leather interior and a Harman Kardon audio system, and you’ll clearly see how the interior of the Kia Sportage is crafted for an excellent driving experience.
