Advantages of the Kia Sportage over the Honda CR-V

When it comes to affordable vehicles that come loaded with standard amenities, everyone knows that Kia is a name to remember. The 2020 Sportage LX offers a lower starting MSRP than the similarly-equipped 2019 Honda CR-V LX model, but comes with plenty of advantages, too!

For one, the new Sportage offers a more sleek and sporty stance, as it boasts a lower height along with a wider front and rear track. This wider stance also helps provide the Kia with more rear hip room for passengers than in the Honda.

While there are many points where the Sportage LX boasts standard features that are only optional on the CR-V LX, there are also plenty of areas where the Kia's optional features are not even available on the same level of Honda CR-V trim. Features like dual-illuminated vanity mirrors, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, power heated exterior mirrors, dual-zone climate control and a windshield de-icer are Sportage LX options that are not offered on the CR-V LX.

The team here at Premier Kia of Kenner has compiled a comparison table for you to peruse during your new SUV search. Here, you'll see in which ways the 2020 Sportage and Honda's CR-V are similar and different, and you can find your own answer to which is the better vehicle and greater deal.
