Horsepower Battle: 2022 Jeep Compass vs 2022 Kia Seltos Near Chilliwack

May 24,2022

If you are searching for a compact crossover that doesn't compromise on power, then you need to turn your attention to the 2022 Jeep Compass. Compared to models such as the 2022 Kia Seltos, it has so much more to offer in terms of strength and capability.   Every Compass model is equipped with the 2.4-litre Tigershark MultiAir Inline-4 engine that delivers 180 hp and 175 lb-ft of torque. Paired with your voice of either a 6- or 9-speed automatic transmission, it can tow up to 907 kgs (2,000 lbs) with ease. That is almost unheard of for this vehicle class. You can also select between 4x2 and 4x4 drivetrains and add Selec-Terrain Traction Management for improved off-roading.   As for the competing Seltos, it can be fitted with one of two motors. The standard is a 1.6-litre 4-cylinder that makes 146 hp and 132 lb-ft of torque. Partnered with AWD and a continuously variable transmission, it is much weaker than the Compass. If you opt for the Night Edition trim level, it will include a turbocharged 2.0-litre 4-cylinder that produces 175 hp - making it the lesser option still.   Contact O'Connor Chrysler today to learn more about the Jeep Compass lineup!
