2019 Jeep Renegade vs. 2020 Kia Soul

Drivers near Oklahoma City and Dallas want a compact SUV that can do it all, but the options in this segment have been endowed with vastly different capabilities. So, why would you choose the Jeep Renegade vs. Kia Soul? Here’s what you need to keep in mind:

  • The Jeep Renegade offers 4×4 in every trim level, while the Soul wins out on fuel economy.
  • The Renegade Trailhawk® offers 8.7 inches of ground clearance. The most you can get with a Soul is 6.7 inches, but the Kia accelerates more quickly.
  • The Renegade comes standard with cruise control, keyless entry, and an automatic transmission with a manual mode.
  • The Kia Soul, on the other hand, comes standard with Apple CarPlay™, Android Auto™, and a 7-inch touchscreen.

You’ve seen some of both models, but before you venture out to any new and used car dealerships near OKC, you’ll still want to compare the Jeep Renegade vs. Kia Soul in-depth!

Performance: Jeep Renegade vs. Kia Soul

If you value off-road confidence and capability, you’ll probably prefer the Renegade. If you want superior fuel economy for your drives through Dallas or OKC, you’ll probably prefer the Soul:

  • Right from the start, the Renegade offers more 180 hp and 175 lb-ft of torque. The Kia Soul only offers 147 hp and 132 lb-ft of torque without upgrades, but its most powerful engine delivers 201 hp.
  • The Kia Soul has an advantage in fuel economy, with 25 mpg city and 31 mpg highway, starting. The Renegade gets 22 mpg city and 30 mpg with front-wheel drive.
  • The Soul doesn’t offer any trim that’s comparable to the Jeep Renegade Trailhawk®, but the Kia accelerates more quickly than the off-road focused Renegade.

  • Cruise control
  • Keyless entry
  • Push-button start
