The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
7.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2016 Honda CR-V has its priorities in the right place, with lots of space and features—but performance takes a back seat. The 2016 Kia Sportage offers good looks, a quality interior, and the fun of available turbocharged power, but it is small inside and it's falling behind in safety ratings.
