The 2013 Honda CR-V vs. the 2013 Kia Sportage

2013 Honda CR-VWhy do both new and pre-owned Honda CR-V’s continue to be popular choices with drivers? CR-V’s are excellent examples of Honda’s dedication to building vehicles that are dependable, perform well, and are comfortable to drive. The 2013 Honda CR-V lives up to Honda’s reputation for quality, as well as sporting an innovative design and a large list of features.

Families interested in a crossover vehicle may also consider the 2013 Kia Sportage. And while the Sportage has similar priced options to the CR-V it misses out on many of the aspects that Honda drivers are enjoying, including ample cargo space. Here’s how the two vehicles match up.

Standard Features

Here are a few of the standard features on the 2013 CR-V that are either non-standard or unavailable on the Sportage LX:

  • An adaptive automatic transmission
  • Rearview Camera
  • A telescoping-steering column
  • Tailgate power lock/unlock
  • Protective floor mats
  • A second row split bench
  • Stereo anti-theft
  • Automatic headlights with auto-off feature

Vehicle Cargo Space

There is also a big difference between the cargo capacities on the two models. Crossovers like the CR-V are meant to be versatile vehicles, so plenty of cargo room is important. While the CR-V has 37.1 cubic feet of cargo space, the Sportage only has 26.1 cubic feet. With the seats folded down, the CR-V’s cargo capacity is increased to 70.9 cubic feet. With a similar cargo configuration, the Sportage still trails behind with 54.6 cubic-feet.
