It’s clear that some of the most popular vehicles on the market are compact SUVs. These vehicles are dominating family lineups across numerous automakers, including right here at John Greene Chrysler Dodge Jeep® RAM. We love comparing compact SUVs against one another, so today, we’re pitting our personal favorite, the 2019 Jeep Renegade, against the 2019 Kia Soul and the 2019 Hyundai Tuscon.
2019 Kia Soul Details
The best way to compare these three models is by both performance and cargo capacity, two factors that can truly define a compact SUV. Let’s start with the 2019 Kia Soul, a quirky compact SUV powered by a 1.6-liter four-cylinder that generates 130 horsepower. When upgraded, this Kia SUV achieves about 201 horsepower with the help of a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine. Cargo is pretty standard, offering drivers 49.5 cubic feet with the rear seats down.
2019 Hyundai Tucson Details
The 2019 Hyundai Tuscon starts with a suitable engine option in the form of a 2.0-liter four-cylinder unit that puts out 161 horsepower. This Hyundai SUV has a leg up in terms of cargo capacity, offering 61.9 cubic feet of cargo space, but when upgraded to the more robust 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine, you’ll still only get about 181 horsepower.
2019 Jeep Renegade Details
The 2019 Jeep Renegade, on the other hand, is the best of both worlds. Its base 1.3-liter four-cylinder engine is small but powerful, delivering 177 horsepower. When you upgrade to the 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine, you’ll get to enjoy 180 horsepower and a beefy 4×4 drivetrain in this Jeep SUV. With 50.8 cubic feet of cargo space, the 2019 Jeep Renegade is certainly the adventure-ready compact SUV that offers everything you need.
