Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Kia Sportage Hybrid than in the Jeep Renegade, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Jeep Renegade offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Kia Sportage Hybrid, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

Convenience
With the Kia Sportage Hybrid, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Jeep Renegade, due to its tank size and fuel economy.
