2016 Honda CR-V

View Inventory

The 2016 Honda CR-V and the 2016 Kia Sportage might both provide Orland Park and Frankfort, IL area families with a versatile platform for all sorts of adventures, but they’re far from equals when it comes down to safety, efficiency, and utility. Take a closer look to see for yourself how they really match up.

Power and Efficiency

Consider how these two models stack up when it comes to efficiency and power:

  • The 2016 Kia Sportage gets a 2.4L four-cylinder engine that produces 182 hp and 177 lb-ft of torque. The Sportage earns an EPA estimated 21 mpg city/28 mpg highway/24 mpg combined with front-wheel drive and six-speed automatic transmission.
  • The 2016 Honda CR-V uses a 2.4L four-cylinder that makes 185 hp and 181 lb-ft of torque. The CR-V earns an EPA estimate of 26 mpg city/33 mpg highway/29 mpg combined* with continuously variable transmission and front-wheel drive.

You can see the Honda CR-V earns better fuel economy estimates and produces more power than the Sportage.

Space and Capacity

So what about cabin space and cargo capacity? This is another clear cut case with the 2016 Honda CR-V offering more front and rear head room, front and rear hip room, front and rear shoulder room, and rear leg room. It also offers 70.9 cubic feet of maximum cargo volume, with 37.2 cubic feet with all seats in place.

The 2016 Kia Sportage not only has less cabin space, it also only has 26.1 cubic feet of cargo space with the seats in place, and 54.6 cubic feet of cargo space total with the rear seats folded down.

The Honda CR-V obviously offers more versatility and utility than the Kia Sportage, and it should offer more comfort for passengers in all rows as well.
