Passenger and Cargo Space Specs

The largest difference between the 2019 Kia Soul and 2019 Nissan Sentra is size. Drivers might assume that because the 2019 Kia Soul is a crossover that it won’t provide as nimble of handling as the 2019 Nissan Sentra. However, even with a larger passenger volume and cargo space area, the 2019 Soul is still significantly shorter in overall length compared to the 2019 Sentra and just about even when it comes to width. Both should be easy-to-maneuver in crowded traffic or on tight city streets.

The 2019 Kia Soul has a length of 163.0 inches and a width of 70.9 inches and the 2019 Nissan Sentra has a length of 182.1 inches and a length of 69.3 inches. Of course, the height on the 2019 Soul is larger thanks to its boxy shape and comes in at 63.5 inches compared to the 58.9-inch height measurement for the 2019 Sentra.

Though most of the exterior measurements of the 2019 Kia Soul are in line with the Nissan Sentra’s offerings, every inch of interior space was designed to provide extra space for passengers and cargo. The 2019 Soul offers over 5 cubic feet of extra passenger volume and over 30 cubic feet of extra cargo space. So, drivers will have no trouble inviting all of their friends along for the ride.
