Advantages of the 2019 Kia Soul

As you can see in the table above, these 2 vehicles are extremely close when it comes to price, power, fuel capacity, and cargo space. Even with this narrow competition, the 2019 Kia Soul still pulls ahead. As you can see, the Soul has slightly more power than the Fit. It may not be enough for you to directly notice, but that little extra power fuels this vehicle with more oomph than the LX has.

Speaking of fuel, the Soul also has a larger fuel tank than the Fit, so depending on your driving and the road conditions, you might find yourself going farther in the Soul.

You can also fit more in the Soul than you can in the Fit, due to the 18.8 cubic feet the Soul offers, which is more than the 16.6 cu. ft. of the Fit.

We’ve saved the starting MRSP for last, because at the end of it all, pricing is an important factor in any buying decision. Because of this, it can be a relief to know that, while the Soul does have slightly more power and fuel and cargo capacities, you can still find yourself paying less for the Soul than you would with the Fit. The Starting MRSP on the Soul is about $600 less than the Fit. This means that you can use that extra money to either get some of the fun available features of the Soul, or just put it in your savings for a rainy day.
