2020 Jeep Compass vs 2020 Kia Sportage

Crossover SUVs are excellent purchases for those that want a larger vehicle with greater crash protection. But not all SUVs offer the same benefits. Looking at the 2020 Jeep Compass and the 2020 Kia Sportage, only one of these two vehicles can offer you the power, towing capacity, and cargo space to fit all of your automotive needs. Read on below to figure out which car is right for you.

2020 Jeep Compass Power & Handling

The 2020 Jeep Compass wields a 2.4L Tigershark 4-cylinder engine and a MultiAir 2 valve train system to offer 180 horsepower, 175 lb-ft of torque, and a towing capacity of up to 2,000 pounds. It comes in two- and four-wheel drive with three available transmissions: class-exclusive nine-speed automatic transmission for 4×4 models, six-speed automatic transmission for 4×2 models, and six-speed manual transmission for 4×2 and 4×4 models. Certain trims offer exceptional off-road capabilities thanks to the Selec-Terrain Traction Management System, and enough suspension travel to soak up big bumps and allow for minimal lean in hard curves. The Jeep Active Drive Low 4×4 System also gives the Compass outstanding on-road traction and dominating off-road performance.

2020 Kia Sportage Power & Handling

The standard trim options of the 2020 Kia Sportage make use of a 2.4L 4-cylinder engine, which is good for 181 horsepower and 175 lb-ft of torque. A 6-speed automatic is the only available transmission, although every trim offers the option of front- or all-wheel drive. Although not designed to be an off-road vehicle, the Kia Sportage offers front and rear suspension to aid in different driving environments.
