When it comes to finding a compact SUV, there are many options to choose from. Our team here at Riverside Kia in the Corona area is here to help you find that perfect vehicle. Both the Kia Soul and Nissan Kicks fall in the same category, but how do each compare?

Kia Value

When it comes to value, the Kia Soul comes out at a lower starting cost than the Nissan Kicks. This doesn’t mean that you’re sacrificing on performance or features either. The Soul comes equipped with a better engine and also has technology features such as Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay® built-in standard.

Inside the Soul and Kicks, you’ll find a similar amount of space for you and your passengers, with the Soul edging out the Kicks in terms of cargo space. It even has an adjustable floor to accommodate cargo of different sizes.

Interior Features

For your commute or next road trip, the Soul is better designed for comfort in Moreno Valley and helps to block out engine and road noises to provide you with a quiet ride. The Soul has been built with quality materials that add a layer of luxury to the interior.

In terms of comfort, the Soul is equipped with an automatic dual-zone climate control system compared to the single-zone of the Nissan Kick. For entertainment, the interface for the Soul’s infotainment system not only gives you a larger screen but is also easier to use.

Kia Safety

The Kia Soul has received a five-star NHTSA crash rating and was named the IIHS Top Safety Pick to get ahead of the Nissan Kick in safety. Driver-assist features like lane-keeping assist on the Soul aren’t available on the Kicks but overall have similar safety features in their design.

Performance

The Soul is equipped with a four-cylinder engine that’s paired with a CVT powertrain for a smoother and more powerful ride. In tests, the Soul had better handling when compared to the Kicks.
