It's what's on the inside that counts, and when you get right down to it there aren't many models that do a better job of keeping your security, comfort, and convenience as top priorities than the 2018 Soul, especially when compared to its HR-V counterpart. Though the 2018 HR-V can offer better base efficiency and interior space, the Soul holds an upper hand in what that interior holds. It provides available leather-stitched seating, ambient mood lighting, Kia UVO infotainment and a panoramic sunroof, all which help to maximize your comfort inside while keeping you connected to the world outside. Combine this with the Soul's 5 Star overall NHTSA safety rating (largely as a result of the below driver assistance features) and it's obvious that this is a sleeker, more sophisticated model than most other model brands can offer. Some of the Kia Soul's safety highlights include:

  • Blind Spot Detection
  • Traction Control System
  • Vehicle Stability Management
  • Tire Pressure Monitoring System
  • Brake Assist System
  • Many more!
