Both the Kia Sportage and the Honda CR-V have been significantly redesigned in the last 18 months, but what if you are not interested in a new SUV? What if you want a spacious and versatile sport utility vehicle that also delivers great value? A pre-owned Kia Sportage is a great option, but so is a used Honda CR-V. Here we look at both models by comparing 2019-2022 Kia Sportage and Honda CR-V pre-owned models.
A used Kia Sportage offers more performance
The Sportage featured two powertrain options from 2019 to 2022. The base models use an advanced 2.4-litre four-cylinder that outputs 181 horsepower and 175 lb-ft of torque which is similar to the CR-V’s only engine output. The Sportage includes a six-speed automatic transmission with Drive Mode Select adds a little fun to your driving. The CR-V offers a continuously variable transmission, which is notorious for its lack of sportiness.
One of the benefits of buying a pre-owned Sportage is the perfect you get. The base engine gives you plenty of performance, but so does the available turbocharged engine. The 2.0L Turbo GDI 4-cylinder deploys 237 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. This is much more than the CRV’s performance capabilities of only 190 hp and 179 lb-ft of torque. Most pre-owned Sportage models also include all-wheel drive, which adds performance and safety to the mix.
Planning a camping trip or a weekend on the water? The Sportage is there for you with a towing capacity of 2,000 lb. The Honda CR-V is maxed out at 1,500 lb, which can limit your leisure options.
The Kia Sportage offers more amenities and technologies than the CR-V, but its interior design is also more advanced with superior textures and materials and much more comfortable seating for all passengers.
A pre-owned Kia Sportage is more accessible, and backed by a great warranty
The Sportage is more affordable than the CR-V as a new vehicle, and certainly as a pre-owned model as well. You will also find value in the Sportage's 5-year/100,000 km worry-free comprehensive warranty which means your used Sportage will offer better peace of mind.
