Kia Soul vs Kia Sportage

Kia Soul vs Kia Sportage

Choosing between the 2018 Kia Soul and Kia Sportage really comes down to who you are as a driver. The Soul's subcompact dimensions and roomy cabin make it popular among first-time buyers and city-dwelling families. In the Sorento, you'll find additional passenger space and sporty utility. So, what kind of driver are you? Our comparison guide is here to help you find yourself.

Cabin Space & Comfort

In the subcompact crossover segment, the 2018 Kia Soul bests competitors in terms of passenger space. The unique body style of the Kia Soul lends itself to two rows of substantial head and leg room and therefore a comfortable commute. The Soul also provides a wide range of upscale options, including ventilated power-adjustable front seats and leather upholstery, to upgrade your on-road experience.

2018 Kia Soul Interior

As a compact crossover, the 2018 Kia Sportage is the most sizable of the pair. If tall genes run in your family, you'll be happy with the Kia Sportage's extra legroom. Like the Kia Soul, the Kia Sorento gives you the star treatment with a range of luxury options, like heated seats and a premium Harman Kardon sound system.


When it comes to infotainment technology, you'll find a lot of parallels between these crossovers. Both offer Kia's Uvo infotainment interface, which includes a responsive touchscreen and intuitive voice controls. The system is easy to use, even if technology isn't one of your strong points. Also included are Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, connectivity features that display smartphone apps on your touchscreen and let you use your phone's Siri or Google voice controls via the central system. With so much connectivity at your fingertips, you can keep up with friends without ever looking away from the road.

2018 Kia Sportage Tech

Both the Kia Soul and the Kia Sportage offer an appeasing list of convenience features, such as keyless ignition and entry, to help your day go by smoothly. You can add extra USB ports to both models to keep devices fully charged, but only the Kia Sportage offers a rear-seat USB port.

Passenger Safety & Driver Aids

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety named both the Kia Soul and the Kia Sportage as 2018 Top Safety Picks. In government crash tests, the Soul and the Sportage earned perfect five-star ratings for overall safety.

If you suffer through a long winter every year, you should note that only the Kia Sportage offers all-wheel drive to improve your footing on icy roads. Other than that, the two share most safety features. When you add the forward collision warning system with automatic emergency braking, your Kia Sportage crossover actively helps you avoid danger. Blind-spot warning alerts you to any vehicles that might be lurking just outside your view.

Fuel Mileage & Performance

The 2018 Kia Soul is the thriftier option, earning up to 26 city/31 highway mpg. The Soul blends fuel efficiency with proficient power, bringing you up to speed in a timely fashion, even from a dead stop.

For extra utility, check out the 2018 Kia Sportage. Properly equipped, this compact crossover can tow up to 2,000 pounds. It's the right choice for anyone with a small watercraft or Jet Ski at home. On the road, it earns up to 23/30 mpg, balancing sporty capabilities with impressive fuel economy.

Both the 2018 Kia Soul and the Kia Sportage put a lot of comfort and convenience features at your fingertips. Ultimately, though, the Kia Soul appeals to drivers who want a fuel-efficient, parallel-parking-friendly crossover. The Kia Sportage is a better choice for families who require a little extra cabin space and some towing action.
