Shopping for a new compact vehicle to upgrade your Athens driving experience? Many shoppers end up comparing the 2019 Jeep Renegade vs. 2019 Kia Soul. Both are zippy, fun, and visually striking compact vehicles, but when you explore their differences in-depth, it becomes clear that the new Jeep Renegade is an optimal choice, with its higher power engine and roomier cabin. Compare the Jeep Renegade vs. Kia Soul with Mark Porter Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram, below, to learn more.

Jeep Renegade vs. Kia Soul: Base Engine Power

If you’re shopping for a compact car, you’re probably looking for a fun driving experience in Parkersburg, and what better way to achieve that than with an engine that has plenty of power to get-up-and-go? While the Kia Soul comes with a lower starting price, you’ll be sacrificing when it comes to what’s under the hood. Compare the base engine of the 2019 Jeep Renegade and 2019 Kia Soul, below: 

  • 2019 Jeep Renegade
    • 2.4L I4 zero evaporation multi-air engine
    • 180 hp
    • 175 lb-ft of torque
  • 2019 Kia Soul
    • 1.6L DOHC 16-valve I-4
    • 130 hp
    • 118 lb-ft of torque

As you can see, the Jeep Renegade offers a much more exciting ride with its 180 hp and 175 lb-ft of torque, leaving the Kia Soul in its dust. The standard transmission on the Renegade is a 9-speed automatic, while the Soul offers either a 6-speed automatic or 6-speed manual.

Jeep Renegade vs. Kia Soul: Interior Space

When you’re shopping for compact vehicles, the main concern is often finding one that is easy to drive but doesn’t compromise on a spacious and comfortable cabin. The Renegade and the Soul are really quite similar in this area, both being five-passenger vehicles, but compare their specs in detail and you’ll see that the Renegade does offer a bit more space:

  • 2019 Jeep Renegade
    • Max Cargo Volume –50.8 cubic feet
  • 2019 Kia Soul
    • Max Cargo Volume –49.5 cubic feet
