2016 Honda CR-V vs 2016 Kia Rondo
The Honda CR-V has been around for a few decades now, establishing its reputation and legacy through the years, ultimately being named the 2016 Motor Trend Sport/Utility of the Year. It is without a doubt our favorite compact crossover on the market, but considering we’re trying to sell you one that might not sound very convincing. So we though instead that we’d dive into a comparison between the 2016 Honda CR-V vs 2016 Kia Rondo – another compact crossover – to show you exactly why it makes for one of the best possible choices in its segment.
Advantages of the 2016 Honda CR-V
Right from the beginning of the table above you can begin to see why the CR-V is such an excellent choice. The very first specification we looked at started to move the meter in favor of the 2016 Honda crossover, as the CR-V offers 21 more horsepower than its Kia Rondo competitor. While that’d not a gigantic advantage, those 21 horses will certainly deliver a more enjoyable driving experience every time you get behind the wheel.
Yet the CR-V doesn’t sacrifice much fuel efficiency to achieve the superior horsepower, as it still utilizes 0.4 l/100km less fuel. Once again, not a big advantage, but in the long run you will save quite a bit of change at the gas station, which is always nice. But horsepower and fuel efficiency aren’t the only two areas that the CR-V excels in, as it also offers quite a bit of extra space for friends or family and anything they need to bring along. In fact, the CR-V provides an extra 5 cubic feet of space for cargo and nearly 2 extra cu. ft. of passenger volume, making it more comfortable for you and your passengers in the cabin.
So as you can see, the 2016 Honda CR-V certainly gives us reasons to brag about it. If you think it’s the right compact crossover for you, then be sure to schedule a test drive right here on our website. Otherwise, feel free to give us a call with any questions that you might have.
