If you’re looking for a small SUV that’s a breeze to navigate through tight spaces in Philadelphia, while also being off-road capable, get the new Jeep Renegade . Other compact SUVs such as the Nissan Kicks and Kia Sportage are also highly maneuverable, but they don’t have the all-terrain skills you get with the Renegade. Gary Barbera's on the Boulevard has new and used Renegade models for sale near Cherry Hill, NJ. We also carry pre-owned Nissan and used Kia vehicles. Read the following comparison to see how the Renegade measures up against its competitors.

All-Terrain Capability

Jeep Renegade

If you’d like an SUV that you can take four-wheeling at Rausch Creek Off-Road Park near Langhorne, PA, the Jeep Renegade is one of the best in its segment. It has up to 8.7 inches of ground clearance and available four-wheel drive to help you power through deep snow and climb over rocks and other obstacles.

Nissan Kicks

The Nissan Kicks only has about 7 inches of ground clearance. It’s only offered with front-wheel drive, so the Kicks isn’t much good for muscling through mud, snow, or rocky terrain.

Kia Sportage

The Kia Sportage has just 6.8 inches of maximum ground clearance. All-wheel drive is available in the Sportage, but even AWD models are not recommended for off-roading.

Engine Power/Acceleration

Jeep Renegade

You’ll want an SUV with quick acceleration for merging into traffic on Highway 130 in Pennsauken, NJ. All new Jeep Renegade models come standard with a turbocharged 177-horsepower four-cylinder engine that makes 210 pound-feet of torque. The Renegade’s high torque helps it take off fast from a stop.

Nissan Kicks

All Nissan Kicks trims come with a 122-horsepower four-cylinder engine that doesn’t provide much zip for passing.

Kia Sportage

The Kia Sportage comes standard with a 181-horsepower four-cylinder engine that only puts out 175 pound-feet of torque. A stronger, 240-horsepower motor is available, but you have to pay more to get it.

Handling/Maneuverability

Jeep Renegade

The Jeep Renegade is only 13.9 feet long, and its responsive steering and a tight turning radius make it a cinch to park in small Jenkintown parking spaces.

Nissan Kicks

The Nissan Kicks is just 14.1 feet long, but its handling is uninspiring, and there isn’t much steering feedback.

Kia Sportage

The Kia Sportage is 14.7 feet long. It isn't the sprightliest vehicle in the class, so it’s not as easy to park and maneuver as the Renegade.

Infotainment System

Jeep Renegade

All Jeep Renegade models come standard with the intuitive Uconnect infotainment interface. This system has an 8.4-inch touch screen with sharp graphics and straightforward menus. It also has chunky, easy-to-reach knobs for audio volume and tuning. Jenkintown drivers will appreciate that the Renegade’s system comes standard with navigation.

Nissan Kicks

The Nissan Kicks’ infotainment system only has a 7-inch standard touch screen, with an 8-inch display available. Its dull graphics and small menu icons make it more difficult to use while driving.

Kia Sportage

The Kia Sportage’s UVO infotainment system is user-friendly, but it’s 8-inch touch screen is smaller than the Renegade’s 8.4-inch display. A navigation system is optional, but you must spend more to add it.
