2019 Kia Soul vs. 2019 Honda Fit

A strong case can be made for the notion that the Kia Soul is largely responsible for putting the automaker on the map. Not only does the Kia Soul have one of the most recognizable silhouettes in the automotive industry, but the vehicle’s unique design also allows it to compete in both the wagon and small crossover SUV classes. A comparison of the 2019 Kia Soul vs. 2019 Honda Fit will reveal several important pieces of information that should be very useful to people interested in this segment. The current version of the Kia Soul available at Classic Kia Carrollton offers more powertrain options and more cargo storage than its Honda rival. Additionally, the 2019 Soul does all of this while maintaining very competitive fuel economy scores. Customers can schedule a test drive with any vehicle available in the showroom by calling, 972-798-6900.

In order to gain a foothold in the segment of the industry where the 2019 Kia Soul resides, it must be functional. Certainly, the exterior design of the 2019 Soul was meant to stand out from the crowd – which it does easily. However, it’s more than that. The boxy frame allows for a lot of oddly shaped cargo to be transported in the Soul that wouldn’t fit in many of its contemporaries. Both the Soul and the Honda Fit have two rows of seats and five spots for passengers. When there are people in the backseat of the Kia Soul, it will have up to 24.2 cubic-feet to offer.

The Honda Fit offers just 16.6 cubic-feet. Folding the seats down will give owners of the Kia Soul as much as 61.3 cubic-feet of cargo volume. Under the best circumstances, the 2019 Honda Fit offers fewer than 53 cubic-feet.
