2022 Kia Sportage vs. 2021 Honda CR-V

The Kia Sportage raises the level of competition throughout the 2022 with outstanding value, safety, versatility, fun and so much more. And with a long-lasting warranty, you can have years of driving with more confidence.

Here, we compare the 2022 Sportage with a competitor also found on Canadian roads, the 2021 Honda CR-V.

The 2022 Kia Sportage shows its value

Amazingly, the 2022 Sportage features better price points than the 2021 CR-V despite all the outstanding features. The Sportage's starting MSRP is $27,760, well below the CR-V's entry point of nearly $30,000. This translates to more savings and value down the model lineup.

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 outpaces the competition

The Sportage features two powertrain options. Five out of six 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. The Sportage includes a six-speed automatic transmission, and Sports Mode in Drive Mode Select adds a little fun to your driving. The CR-V offers a CVT, which can be less personalized and more bland on the road.

However, the Sportage includes another powertrain that is the best one in this comparison. The 2.0L Turbo GDI 4-cylinder takes driving to a new level with 237 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. Most Sportage models also include all-wheel drive to help you have more fun and safety.

The Sportage also offers outstanding safety features. It competes strongly against and even surpasses the CR-V in several safety ratings published by the Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), bringing a peace of mind to each drive. Available Rear Cross Traffic Alert uses bumper-based sensors to detect and warn you of any traffic approaching from either left or right. With Forward Collision Avoidance Assist, you will be warned with an audible alert when it detects a potential collision. It will automatically apply the brakes to prevent or reduce the impact.
