2018 Kia Sportage
vs. 2018 Honda CR-V
Compact SUVs are becoming more popular than ever before as drivers opt for vehicles with comfort, style, and ample passenger and cargo space.
Two vehicles that are at the forefront of this trend are the 2018 Kia Sportage and the Honda CR-V. We’ve put these two SUVs to the test so you can see which the better buy is.
After receiving a full redesign in 2017, the Kia Sportage definitely stands out from the crowd. With the CR-V, you’ll be just another driver on the road. What makes the Sportage even more impressive is its excellent handling and quiet ride, thanks to sound-deadening technology.
The Kia Sportage allows you two engine options, a 2.4-liter four-cylinder with a six-speed manual transmission, or a six-speed automatic with manual-shift capability, depending on which trim level you choose. With the CR-V, you only have one engine option.
The 2018 Kia Sportage is a bit easier on your wallet than the Honda CR-V. The Sportage has a starting MSRP of $23,600 compared to the CR-V’s starting MSRP of $24,150.
If you want a vehicle that’s reliable, choose the 2018 Kia Sportage. The Kia comes with a 10 year/100,000 mile Limited Powertrain Warranty, while the Honda CR-V’s warranty is only good for 5 years/60,000 miles.
