2018 Kia Soul vs Jeep Renegade

2018 Kia Soul vs Jeep Renegade

The 2018 Kia Soul and Jeep Renegade are the kind of small crossover SUVs that strike an exemplary balance between modern comfort and utility. Which of these models is the one for you? Read our buying guide to learn more about how these crossovers compare.

Best Creature Comforts: 2018 Kia Soul

Inside, the Soul makes all the right moves. You'll love its roomy interior and expansive cargo hold. On road trips, there's 19 cubic feet behind the rear seats for passengers' weekend bags. We're also big fans of the seating arrangements; both rows provide enough head- and legroom for tall passengers.

Kia Soul Interior

For a small crossover, the Jeep Renegade also impresses with its roomy interior. The front seats deliver substantial support and a wide range of adjustments, making it easy to get comfortable for the long haul. The back seat is adequate, though we wish there was a bit more legroom. Behind the rear seats, there are 18.5 cubic feet of cargo space. When you fold down the rear seats, the Renegade only offers 50.8 cubes of maximum space. The Kia Soul can haul larger items, thanks to its 61 cubes of max cargo space.

Smartest Tech Features: It's a Tie!

In the infotainment department, the 2018 Kia Soul and Jeep Renegade actually have a lot in common. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto technology is optional on both crossovers' base models and comes standard on higher trims. This technology displays smartphone apps on your central touchscreen, so there's no need to look down at your phone. Both Kia's UVO and Jeep's Uconnect infotainment systems feature crisp touchscreens and easy-to-use menu systems. You'll be able to find the app you need without having to go through superfluous screens or tap relentlessly in a futile effort to get a response.

Kia Soul Features

Safest Performance: 2018 Kia Soul

Here, the Soul really shines. In government crash tests, the Soul earned a perfect five-star rating for overall protection. With the Primo package, you can add all of the latest and greatest safety aids to your Soul. These include forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking. If this technology brings you up short of just one accident, it pays for itself.

Kia Soul Safety

The Renegade also bundles its safety aids, so you can add features like lane departure warning and forward collision warning to top trim models for help avoiding accidents. In government crash tests, the Jeep Renegade earned four out of five stars for overall safety. While this is not as good a showing as the Soul made, it's still pretty good.

Most Rugged Capabilities: 2018 Jeep Renegade

In the compact crossover segment, there's no better off-road companion than the Jeep Renegade. Unlike competitors, Jeep offers four-wheel drive capabilities for every Renegade trim model. The off-road-ready Renegade Trailhawk takes things a step further with a unique four-wheel-drive system that includes low-range gearing to help you tackle difficult terrain.

2018 Jeep Renegade Off-Road

Unfortunately, the Kia Soul was not designed for rugged off-roading. Its suspension is tuned for comfort and the transmission sends power to the front wheels only.

Although it won't take you down any rugged trails, the 2018 Kia Soul is our first choice for comfort and safety. It also makes a competitive showing with all of the latest technology, offering you the most in smartphone integration and driver safety aids. The Kia Soul is perfect for commuters, making you feel safe as you travel the highway.
