2018 Kia Soul vs. 2018 Jeep Renegade

These days, there are so many competing brands and models vying for consumer attention, that it can be difficult to find the vehicle that's right for you. The information from each brand can be muddled and sometimes misleading. That's why we at Serra Kia create these model research and comparison pages so you can see how some of the top brand models stack up against each other. Let's take a closer look at the 2018 Kia Soul and the 2018 Jeep Renegade.

Both are very popular among consumers because of their size, impressive fuel economy, and low starting price. But, which one holds the edge? To better figure out which one is a better value for consumers, let's examine each models' starting MSRP, fuel economy, total passenger volume, and their safety ratings. Note that we're comparing each models' base level trim to be as fair as possible.

As you can see, each model offers a lot on its own and provides a tremendous value to possible consumers. However, by examining the evidence and data, it's clear that the 2018 Kia Soul holds the edge between the two. In some areas, it's a razor-thin difference but when you're investing in a new car, doesn't every little bit count?

For starters, the 2018 Kia Soul's lower starting price by over $2,000 gives it a comfortable edge over the 2018 Jeep Renegade and you couple that with the better fuel economy and not only will the Soul be more affordable in the short-term, but the long-term as well. Plus, you're getting more passenger volume with the Soul (one cubic foot may not seem like a lot, but ask your passengers if they'd like more or less space) and a safer vehicle as the 2018 Kia Soul was named an IIHS TOP SAFETY PICK+, which the 2018 Jeep Renegade did not receive.

So, in all the categories that really matter when you're looking at buying a new car, price, fuel economy, space, and safety, the 2018 Kia Soul outdoes its Jeep competitor, making it a more valuable purchase and a better investment.
