Now, we’ll look at the performance since that’s an important factor, as well. You want something strong that can get you where you need to go quickly and still be efficient. You will get that and more if you select the Kia Sportage. The Sportage base model comes with a 2.4-Liter I-4 motor that puts out 181 horsepower. If you need something with a bit more bang, you can always go for one of the models that have a larger engine with more power. Kia created a variety of models, and they have varying potency. The strongest one can give you up to 240 horsepower, which is up there in the sports car league. The CR-V was shy of having the same capabilities as the Sportage.

Reliability – Sportage specs in Mississauga

The reliability score is something that JD Power gives vehicles after they do some comparisons on breakdowns, repair cost and longevity. The higher a vehicle’s reliability score is, the longer the buyer can expect it to last. The buyer can also expect to see a high resale value from such a vehicle. The Kia Sportage is the winner in the category of reliability. JD Power gave it four stars out of five, which is a very good above-average score. The Honda CR-V had a 3.5-star score, which is only a hair above being mediocre. We’ll give the crown to the Sportage here and recommend that you go with it rather than its opponent.

Safety – 2020 Kia Sportage dealer

The safety lineup is crucial in an SUV. The more safety features a vehicle has, the safer you can feel on every journey you take. The Kia Sportage has a hefty lineup of safety features in its models. The list is extensive, so we can’t tell you all of the features it carries right now. However, we can give you an idea of what you can expect. Cross-Traffic Alert, Traction Control, Blind Spot Monitor and Lane Keep Assist are some of the key features you can expect to see on a Sportage. The Lane Lane Keep Assist works in conjunction with the Lane Departure Warning to alert you when you travel out of your lane and help you regain composure. The Blind Spot Monitor looks in your blind spot and lets you know if it catches anything in the areas where you can’t see. Traction Control can keep you stuck to the road when in rainy conditions.

The CR-V has its own set of safety features that include features such as Child Safety Locks and Daytime Running Lights. There’s nothing too impressive there to see. Thus, we give the Kia Sportage the winning award for Safety.
