When looking for a rough and thrilling SUV, the first factor you’ll want to consider is performance. The right off-road amenities will help you have the thrilling getaway you desire. So, let’s see how the Compass and the Sportage stack up.

Rugged and Ready for Action

When it comes to tackling mud, snow, ice, or rocky conditions, you’ll need to have the proper drivetrain by your side. In the 2023 Jeep Compass, you’ll have the option to add on 4-wheel drive (4WD). It sends power and stability to all four tires to provide more control on rugged terrain.

The Kia Sportage, on the other hand, is only available with all-wheel drive. While this system is helpful for getting through heavy rains and light snow, it’s not as ready for off-road conditions as 4WD.

Curate Traction and Control

In addition to a 4WD drivetrain, the Jeep Compass is also be armed with a Selec-Terrain® Traction Management System that offers the following selectable driving modes:

  • Auto
  • Snow
  • Sand/Mud
  • Rock

Whether you’re staying on the paved path or heading across a beach, this feature is sure to have your back.

In the Sportage, you can choose from three drive modes: Normal, Smart, and Sport. However, as you can see, there aren’t as many options as with the Compass.
