2020 Kia Soul vs 2019 Honda HR-V

2020 Kia Soul vs 2019 Honda HR-V

Your next vehicle may be a bit of a maverick. Drivers are shifting their focus more toward the SUV segment as those vehicles allow for greater cargo space and towing options, unlike most sedans. Not everyone has the desire to drive a larger vehicle like that though, so what is a good alternative? Subcompact SUVs. They have more cargo space than a typical sedan, but they are smaller and easier to handle – not to mention having better fuel efficiency than an SUV. So which subcompact SUV is right for you? there are plenty to choose from, but the 2020 Kia Soul seems to be a good option. The signature boxy shape is for more than just aesthetics; it’s a way to store more cargo. Curious to see how it compares against another top option? Check out the 2020 Kia Soul vs 2019 Honda HR-V!

Highlights in the 2020 Soul

The Kia Soul excels ahead of the HR-V for a few reasons. First is that you’ll have two different engine options to choose from. The base 2.0L 4-cylinder engine is a better choice for drivers who want optimal fuel efficiency (27 city/33 hwy mpg), but you can also upgrade to the 1.6L 4-cylinder turbo and get a sporty 201 horsepower. The HR-V only offers one engine, and that one gets less power than the standard engine found in the Soul. One other highlight in the Soul, as with all Kia models, is the lengthy 10 year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty. This warranty covers you in the event of an engine malfunction or damage that occurs due to fault on behalf of the manufacturer. You won’t find many other automakers that put this much trust and confidence in their powertrains (the HR-V only offers a 5 year/60,000 mile powertrain warranty), but this just goes to show how reliable the engine is in the Kia Soul, as well as the other models in the Kia lineup.

If you’re looking to break free from ordinary and experience a whole different dimension of driving, the 2020 Kia Soul may be the right choice for you. Learn more when you get in touch with our team here at Kia of Attleboro or schedule a test drive on our website today!
