2020 Soul vs. 2020 Kona

If you’re looking for an efficient vehicle that can handle your daily driving needs for an affordable price, the subcompact SUV class is the perfect place to start your search. Both the Kia Soul and the Hyundai Kona deliver the segment’s signature fuel efficiency and affordability, but the details of each vehicle deserve a closer look. Let’s park these two popular SUVs side by side to compare their standout qualities.

Price and Value

Before making an investment as big as your next vehicle, you have to consider the cost. The subcompact class appeals to many drivers for its low-price options, and the Soul proves that a modest price tag can still come with a high-quality vehicle. The Soul’s starting price is considerably lower than the Kona’s entry-level price, and that difference remains steady even as you climb the trim range. If you weigh the top-of-the-line variations of each model, the Kia Soul still offers premium quality at a lower price than the Kona.

Interior and Cargo

Drivers typically don’t expect much interior space from the subcompact segment, but the Kia Soul surpasses class standards with a surprisingly spacious cabin. Its unique frame optimizes interior room, and up to five adults can ride comfortably in the airy SUV. The Kia promises a refreshing amount of overhead clearance and legroom in both rows, while the Kona falls short with a narrow back row and limited headroom.

The Soul’s abundance of room extends to the cargo area, where you’ll find a generous 24.2 cubic feet for storage. You can also fold the Soul’s rear seats for a total of 62 cubic feet. On the other hand, the Kona only offers 19.2 cubic feet in the back, and 45.8 cubic feet when its passenger seats are folded.

Power and Efficiency

Both SUVs handle well on the open road, and their slim shapes make them particularly maneuverable in tight parking situations. True to the class’ economic sensibilities, they also deliver conservative gas mileage. If you’re looking for optimal energy, however, the Kia has more to offer. Both subcompacts come standard with a 147-horsepower engine, while they can also be equipped with even heartier options. For the Soul, Kia offers a potent 201-horsepower turbocharged 4-cylinder, topping the Kona’s available 4-cylinder with a 175-horsepower output.
