Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat may find themselves a little more cramped in the Ford Bronco Sport than the Honda CR-V. The Ford Bronco Sport will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Honda CR-V.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Ford Bronco Sport as you will with the Honda CR-V, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the Ford Bronco Sport will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Honda CR-V.

Dimensions
The Ford Bronco Sport is a little wider than the Honda CR-V, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. If you go with the Ford Bronco Sport, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Honda CR-V.

Handling
The Ford Bronco Sport has the same turning radius as the Honda CR-V, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Ford Bronco Sport is clearly the choice over the Honda CR-V for pulling heavy loads. The Ford Bronco Sport has a little less horsepower than the Honda CR-V.

Powertrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Ford Bronco Sport transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Honda CR-V.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Ford Bronco Sport and the Honda CR-V. The Ford Bronco Sport has less cargo space than the Honda CR-V, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.
