2022 Kia Sportage vs. 2021 Honda CR-V: More Power, Better Driving Dynamics

2022 Kia Sportage vs. 2021 Honda CR-V

The Kia Sportage pushes the limits in terms of performance and technology. It is extremely stylish and brings uniqueness to the compact SUV segment. But the Sportage also brings great value and reliability with a long-lasting warranty and competitive pricing.

Here, we compare the 2022 Sportage with the 2022 Honda CR-V.

The 2022 Kia Sportage delivers incredible value

Value is an important aspect when purchasing a vehicle. The Sportage's starting MSRP is $25,995, well below the CR-V's entry point of $32,995, gives drivers the opportunity to own a state-of-the-art compact SUV at a much lower price. You will also find value in the Sportage's 5-year/100,000 km worry-free comprehensive warranty covering virtually the entire vehicle.

The 2022 Kia Sportage surpasses the competition in terms of power and tech

The Sportage focusses on performance on every level with two powertrain options. Base Sportage trims feature an advanced 2.4-litre four-cylinder that outputs 181 horsepower and 175 lb-ft of torque. The CR-V has similar output of 190 horsepower and 179 lb-ft of torque.

However, the Sportage includes a six-speed automatic transmission with Drive Mode Select that delivers a more dynamic drive. The Honda CR-V offers a continuously variable transmission (CVT), which can be notoriously unpleasant to operate when the driver is looking for a more thrilling ride. This is the only powertrain option that the CR-V offers. The Kia Sportage includes another engine option that is the best one in this comparison. The 2.0 L Turbo GDI 4-cylinder takes driving to new levels with 237 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque.

Most Sportage models also include all-wheel drive, which is an essential tool to conquer Canadian winters. The CR-V’s available AWD system is much less advanced.

With tons of standard safety features, the Sportage keeps you and your family away from harm’s way. But it is also incredibly stylish inside, thanks to a comfortable cabin crafted using the finest materials and textures. The Sportage supplies the driver with a perfect driving position, and the rear passengers can take advantage of plenty of legroom and headroom.
