Kia Soul compared to the Toyota RAV4

If you are concerned about price when shopping for a crossover, then the Soul shows you how big the price differences are out there. Not only is the base price of the Soul over $8,000 cheaper than the RAV4’s base price, but you can get a top trim Soul ! with a $22,800 MSRP, which is still less than the base price on the RAV4.

When it comes to power, the Kia Soul has a big surprise at the ! trim level. With a turbo engine, it can push above 200 horsepower, which far surpasses the horsepower capabilities of thee RAV4 even at the top trim level.

For those that still cling to the idea of Toyota reliability, we can put some of that to bed with the powertrain warranty. If you built the more reliable car, wouldn’t you want to back the up with the longer powertrain warranty to give your customers the peace of mind they deserve? That’s what Kia does, and with the Soul you have 10 years or 100,000 miles of powertrain warranty protection to look forward to.

Lastly, we bring up passenger room to further demonstrate that even though the Kia Soul seems to inexplicably have affordability, warranty, and horsepower on its side, these cars are still geared towards the same segment. Of course, the Soul still wins.
