Honda CR-V vs Kia Sportage & Kia Sorento

We know how impressive that sounds, but the Sportage also took home the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) “Top Safety Pick” in 2016, 2017, and 2018. It’s also a Kelly Blue Book “Top 10 Most Awarded Vehicle,” and an Autotrader “Must Test Drive” vehicle.

The Sorento holds true to the Kia quality standard and slogan “the power to surprise” taking the #1 IQS spot away from the competition in 2017 (moving up from #2 in 2016). It was the IIHS “Top Safety Pick” in 2016 and 2017, and has been accredited with a 5-star Safety Rating from the (NHTSA) National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Red Dot Design Honorable Mention Award in 2016, and Automobile Journalists Association of Canada’s (AJAC) “Best New SUV” in 2016.

Warranty

Kia offers a standard 5-year 100,000 km full comprehensive warranty and 5-year unlimited km Roadside Assistance, giving you peace of mind over and above Kia’s consistently proven quality. That’s a full 2 years and 40,000 km warranty over Honda’s 3 year 60,000 km warranty.

Equipment

No matter what trim you’re looking at, a Kia shines. Let’s meet in the middle (trim), and sink into the Sportage and Sorento’s beautiful interior. It’s all about luxury, with leather seating for 5, and a 7 passenger option available in select Sorento models. Whether you’re using the driver memory seat or power thigh extension, finding your perfect level of comfort is no problem in the Kia Sorento.
Load up your cross bars with all sorts of toys; the Sportage and Sorento AWD trim comes with standard roof rails that add versatility to an already incredible lineup. The Sorento and Sportage both sport available blind spot detection, which warns you of traffic when changing lanes, while the auto dimming rear view mirror senses headlights from rear traffic. Let the fresh air in with the panoramic sunroof; its 1-touch express feature allows you to open/close everything up with a quick touch of a button!

Get the camper ready for the weekend with the Sportage’s 2,000 lbs towing or bump it up by gassing up the Sorento and hitting the road with its jaw dropping 5,000 lbs capability! The Sportage and the Sorento have the Honda CR-V beat, with its max towing limit coming in at 1,500 lbs.
