2016 Kia Soul vs. 2016 Chevrolet Trax

The 2016 Kia Soul and the 2016 Chevrolet Trax are two fully-capable crossover vehicles that get nice fuel economy but still have room in back for your bags. We'll break down which has the better design, cargo room, and available features so you can decide which is the right ride for you.

The 2016 Kia Soul is an icon at this point, with hamsters for mascots and a fun-loving exterior just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the fun you can have with this multi-talented vehicle that gets 24 mpg city, 31 mpg highway and still has room for 61.3 cubic feet of cargo. That's 25 percent more space for your groceries, camping gear or musical instruments than you get in the 2016 Chevy Trax, which has 48.4 cubic feet for cargo. Plus, the 2016 Soul can be yours at Friendly Kia for less than $12,000 with our available VIP Price, while the 2016 Trax is more than $18,000 at the competition's lot.

Bring More Soul to Your World in Tampa Clearwater and St. Petersburg FL

If all you looked at was the starting price, you would already have enough reasons – several thousand of them - to "make some tracks" from Chevrolet and head towards a Kia dealership, but we have more for you to consider if you haven't already taken off to test drive a 2016 Kia Soul. For starters, the 2016 Soul has a low-to-the-ground stance, making it easy to get into and out of. And on the inside, you have cool available features like UVO eServices with voice-command navigation and mood lights for your speaker trim to get the party started. The 2016 Soul was also named "Highest Ranked Compact Multi-Purpose Vehicle in Initial Quality" by J.D. Power in its 2016 Initial Quality Study*.

While the 2016 Chevy Trax has a modern crossover design and fine fuel economy, it doesn't stand out from the pack like the unique 2016 Soul does. Nor does it have the industry-leading warranty coverage that the 2016 Soul comes with, 10 years or 100,000 miles of limited powertrain coverage compared to the 2016 Trax' five years or 60,000 miles for limited powertrain. With its spacious interior, style and savings, the time is right to test drive one of our 2016 Kia Soul models at Friendly Kia, 5819 US Highway 19 in New Port Richey, FL. We also serve the Tampa, Clearwater and St. Petersburg area, as well as Brooksville, Trinity, Tarpon Springs and Spring Hill.
