The powertrain warranty is a big deal. With the Kia Soul, your engine and transmission are protected against failure for 10 years or 100,000 miles. That’s nearly double what the competition offers, and that’s not all. The Kia Soul also comes with a 60-month or 60,000-mile bumper-to-bumper coverage, which is a big improvement over the Renegade’s 36-month, or 36,000-mile coverage. In other words, with the Kia Soul, you are not just buying a car. You are buying peace of mind.

When it comes time to talk about capability, do not think for a second that the Kia Soul will be left in the dust.
