2018 kia soul vs 2018 honda civic

Perhaps the most competitive car segment in the entire automotive industry is the compact car. Over the past decade or so, more and more drivers have chosen to go with the smaller, more efficient compact car models because of their affordability and practicality when it comes to fuel economy. Because of this interest, there's been an influx of available models on the market, with each automaker having their own compact that claims to be the best. But, which really stand out from the pack?

That's where we come in. We create these model comparison pages so that drivers can see how some of the most popular vehicle models stack up directly against one another. We find that looking at key model information side-by-side helps drivers come to a more informed and easier decision. For this comparison, we're going to be looking at two of the most popular compacts, the 2018 Kia Soul and 2018 Honda Civic. Let's see who comes out on top!

As you can see by the specifications and key model information for each compact, both offer tremendous value to drivers and are so popular for a reason! However, when you compare the two directly with one another side-by-side, it's clear that the 2018 Kia Soul holds the edge over the 2018 Honda Civic.

The big attraction for the 2018 Kia Soul is its impressive size when it comes to interior space for cargo and passengers despite it being a compact car. When you compare it to the Honda Civic, drivers can really see how much more space they get with the Kia Soul than other compact cars. Plus, even though you get more space, you don't have to pay more for it thanks to the Kia Soul's incredibly low starting MSRP!

Another advantage for the 2018 Kia Soul is its incredible safety rating. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) was so impressed with the Kia Soul it gave it the prestigious distinction of being a Top Safety Pick+. Plus, the 2018 Kia Soul comes with a wealth of advanced safety features that include:

  • Autonomous Emergency Braking
