With its spacious and versatile accommodations, rugged character, and compact physical footprint, the new Ford Bronco Sport is perfect for Jacksonville drivers with active lifestyles seeking something adventurous but with convenient maneuverability. While it's not without competition, the Bronco Sport is one of the most appealing and capable crossovers in its class. Here's a quick look at how it stacks up against its most notable rivals, the Jeep Renegade.

Ford Bronco Sport vs. Jeep Renegade: Performance

The base engines of the Bronco Sport (181-horsepower 1.5L turbo-three) and Renegade (177-horsepower 1.3L turbo-four) are closely matched. However, the Bronco Sport also offers an available 2.0L turbo-four making a stout 250 hp and 277 lb-ft, while the Renegade doesn't offer a stronger powertrain. Additionally, the Bronco Sport comes standard with all-wheel-drive on all trim levels. The Renegade only offers standard AWD on its top two tiers (Limited, Trailhawk®).

The Bronco Sport also comes standard with the Terrain Management System™ and G.O.A.T. modes that help you Go Over Any Terrain. Each trim includes five selectable settings (Normal, ECO, Sand, Slippery, and Sport), while the Badlands™ trim adds Mud/Ruts and Rock Crawl modes).

Ford Bronco Sport vs. Jeep Renegade: Versatility

Extra storage capacity is one of the primary advantages of choosing a crossover, and the Ford Bronco Sport has a lot. With all seats in use, you'll still have 32.5 cubic feet to spare for your gear. When your adventures require even more cargo capacity, the rear seats fold easily to reveal 65.2 cubic feet. That's enough space to fit two mountain bikes inside the vehicle. Available options include easy-to-clean rubberized flooring and rear seatbacks, a second-row underseat storage compartment, and a handy cargo management system.

The Renegade can't match the Bronco Sport for Storage, with just 18.5 cubic feet behind the rear seats and a maximum of 50.8 cubes.

Ford Bronco Sport vs. Jeep Renegade: Accommodations

Passengers will find the Ford Bronco more comfortable, too, as it offers more front and rear headroom (41.5/41.7 vs. 41.1/40.5 in.) and legroom (42.4/36.9 vs. 41.2/31.5 in.). The Bronco Sport also offers several standard features that are only optional on the Renegade, including alloy wheels, roof rails, LED headlights, and an 8-inch touchscreen.
