Which SUV is better: the 2020 Kia Sportage or the 2019 Jeep Compass?
To start off this comparison, let’s first look at the engines in both vehicles. The standard 2020 Kia Sportage has a 2.4-liter engine that produces 181 horsepower and 175 lb-ft of torque. The higher trim levels increase the horsepower to 237 and torque to 260 lb-ft. The 2019 Jeep Compass also has a 2.4-liter engine that produces 180 horsepower and 175 lb-ft of torque. Although the standard engines are similar, there are more features that set these two vehicles apart.
Next, let’s look at maximum trailer weight. The 2020 Kia Sportage can tow up to 1,653 lbs without trailer brakes and 2,000 lbs with trailer brakes. The 2019 Jeep Compass can only tow up to 1,000 lbs. If you were to increase trim levels on the Jeep Compass, you still would not be able to match the towing capacity of the 2020 Kia Sportage. All of the 2019 Jeep Compass trim levels can only tow up to 1,000 lbs.
The interior cargo volume of the 2020 Kia Sportage is 30.7 cubic feet. The interior cargo volume of the 2019 Jeep Compass is 27.2 cubic feet. This difference might not seem like a lot, but what about when you are trying to fit one more suitcase in the back of your vehicle? You will be happy when that last suitcase fits in the back of your 2020 Kia Sportage.
Finally, the two Bumper to Bumper Warranties greatly differ. The Kia warranty lasts for five years and 60,000 miles and the Jeep warranty only lasts for three years and 36,000 miles. This shows that Kia believes in and backs up their vehicles.
