The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
5.2
6.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2020 Jeep Renegade is a compact crossover SUV that’s full of character and off-road prowess, but it makes many important compromises. The 2021 Kia Soul hatchback has style and substance in the same package; few cars can boast the same.
