SUVs are sporty by nature. They can provide all the pep in your step necessary to embark on an early-morning yoga class or an after-work walk with your pup. With various paths to take in life, these two SUVs wear wheels that suit all types of adventure. When paired with a capable engine, either the Renegade or the Soul can go anywhere.

The 2022 Jeep Renegade and the 2022 Kia Soul are hosts for peppy performance, but which model offers more juice under the hood? Which model delivers the stability you desire on any terrain? Find out below.

Powered Up

Starting off strong, these mighty SUVs come with plenty of power. The Kia Soul has a standard 2.0L 4-cylinder engine, while the Jeep Renegade comes with a 1.3L 4-cylinder Turbo engine.

How do these performance specs compare? Let’s put them side by side to see:

Jeep Renegade
Kia Soul
ENGINE 1.3L 4-cylinder 2.0L 4-cylinder
TORQUE 210 lb-ft 132 lb-ft

While the Kia Soul does have an available turbo engine of its own, it only puts out 195 lb-ft of torque, falling behind the Jeep Renegade. Drivers who crave the most power will want to go with the Jeep. With one engine option, the Jeep shines above.

Got Grip?

While both SUVs have 16-inch wheels, the Jeep can also be outfitted with available 19-inch aluminum wheels on certain trims. While the Kia Soul also has bigger wheels available, they max out at 18 inches.

What’s the benefit of bigger wheels? Along with heightening your ride and delivering a more prominent stance, larger wheels—and thus, bigger tires— increase traction and grip and enhance stopping power.

Are you heading out on a road trip or to the bumpy trails? If so, who says your time off the grid must be without technology? Not the 2022 Jeep Renegade or the 2022 Kia Soul!

These two SUVs make sure all your travels are smooth and convenient thanks to their technology suites. However, if your adventures take you to uncharted territory, it’s the Renegade that will better help you roll with the punches.

Hit the Road With Built-In Entertainment

Getting ready for some off-roading fun? When you want to turn up the music, you’ll be grateful to have an SUV with top-notch technology. Let’s see how the Jeep Renegade and the Kia Soul hold up.

The Jeep Renegade comes standard with the Uconnect® 4C NAV system. This system provides:

  • 8.4-Inch touchscreen display
  • Standard Navigation
  • Apple CarPlay® support
  • Android Auto™ compatibility

This large screen is available even on the base trim! As for audio, you’ll be blasting your playlists through the standard six speakers.

Confident Travels

As for the Soul, you’ll find similar technologies on board. For instance, you can also dive deep into the heart and soul of your favorite artist thanks to six speakers in the Kia. In addition, the Kia Soul offers an 8-inch touchscreen as well as Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ connectivity.

Despite their similarities, the Jeep Renegade stays one step ahead by making its navigation system standard. You’ll only be able to get clear directions from the Kia’s comparable system with an upgrade.

Let’s talk interior features. SUVs are known for their spacious cabins—and these subcompact SUVs continue that tradition. You’ll find plenty of space for your crew or your cargo in either model and even a few seating amenities to make your commutes, carpools, or cruises worthwhile.

However, in terms of passenger space and comfort features availability, the Jeep Renegade proves to be a more comfortable ride experience.

Cozy Cabin

Adventure calls all year-round, which means you need a vehicle that can make chilly morning commutes or brisk night drives easy to handle. To make sure you’re feeling warm and fuzzy on all fronts, both models can be equipped with available heated front seats and an available heated steering wheel.

However, you’ll find these features in more trims in the Renegade, which equips them on all but the base trim. On the Kia, you’ll only find these features on the top trim.

Wiggle Room Included

Let’s look at the interior room available to you and your passengers:

  • Jeep Renegade headroom (front/rear): 41.1 inches/40.5 inches
  • Kia Soul headroom (front/rear): 39.4 inches/39.5 inches

Not only does the Jeep Renegade offer more than 40 inches of headroom throughout the vehicle, but it also has 55.9 inches of shoulder room in the front and 55.1 inches in the rear. In comparison, the Kia Soul only has 55.5 inches of shoulder room in the front and 54.7 inches in the rear.

Whether you’re traveling with family or friends, your passengers will have more room in the Jeep Renegade.
