Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat may find themselves a little more cramped in the Honda CR-V Hybrid than the Kia Sorento. The Kia Sorento will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Honda CR-V Hybrid.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Honda CR-V Hybrid as you will with the Kia Sorento, 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 Honda CR-V Hybrid will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Kia Sorento.

Dimensions
Since the Honda CR-V Hybrid is much slimmer than the Kia Sorento, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The Honda CR-V Hybrid is slightly shorter than the Kia Sorento, which may make it easier to park.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Honda CR-V Hybrid has a lot less horsepower than the Kia Sorento.

Powertrain
The Honda CR-V Hybrid has much lower torque than the Kia Sorento, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Utility
The Honda CR-V Hybrid has less seating than the Kia Sorento, making the Kia Sorento the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Honda CR-V Hybrid has less cargo space than the Kia Sorento, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.
