2016 Kia Soul vs. 2016 Nissan JUKE

2016 Kia Soul interior 101 cubic feet passenger room UVO eServices Tampa FL

Imagine every car on the road looks the same – sedans and SUVs and trucks are all from the same mold, formless and character-free. This isn’t reality, but cars can look similar to one another at times. Which is why we have a side-by-side comparison of the 2016 Kia Soul vs. the 2016 Nissan JUKE, which demonstrates two of the more unique designs out there on the streets today.

The 2016 Kia Soul needs very little introduction, as it combines the fun of a boxy, low-to-the-ground design with the value of high gas mileage – 24 mpg city, 31 mpg highway - and more cargo room than you would have thought possible at 61.3 cubic feet. Forget buying that SUV or minivan to tote your family and belongings with you, the Kia Soul can handle it. The 2016 Nissan JUKE is also unique among vehicles on the road, with a low-riding, curved exterior and plenty of color choices, but its interior size is inferior to the Kia Soul's. If you want to go on a trip of any length, then the JUKE's 86.7 cubic feet of room for passengers will have you feeling cramped, while the Kia Soul's 101 cubic feet is similar to a midsize sedan, giving you room to stretch out and breathe.

In addition to the 2016 Soul's advantage in passenger room, it also has more versatility for your cargo needs, with up to 61.3 cubic feet for your bags and sporting equipment. The 2016 JUKE has about 40 percent less room for you to pack your belongings, at 35.9 cubic feet.  And speaking of discrepancies, the 2016 Kia Soul can be yours with Friendly Kia VIP pricing that is several thousand dollars less than what the 2016 Nissan JUKE will cost you at the competition.
