2017 Kia Soul vs. 2017 Nissan JUKE
The Nissan JUKE is a bit like the "Kia Soul" of the Nissan vehicle line, with a devil-may-care design and plenty of color splashes available in its Nissan Color Studio. However, it does not come close to the comforts, options and value of the 2017 Kia Soul, which is in a class unto itself. Let's compare these multi-purpose crossover vehicles and see which has the best features for your driving style.
The 2017 Kia Soul has a new engine option for the new model year, a turbocharged 4-cylinder beast that cranks out 201 horsepower, which adds a new peak of performance to this fun-loving crossover. It also has a spacious area in back for your shopping bags or other cargo, with 61.3 cubic feet available, or a sizable advantage over the 2017 JUKE's 35.9 cubic feet for cargo. And you can have the 2017 Soul on the Friendly Kia lot for prices that start at less than $12,000, while on the other hand, the 2017 JUKE can run you more than $21,000 on competing lots. Add to that the 2017 Soul's available UVO3 eServices with access to Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, plus streaming music apps, tech options which the JUKE simply does not have.

Out-Juke the JUKE with a Soulful Kia Soul in New Port Richey FL
Cargo space and price alone don't make a vehicle superior, but would it help you if we told you the 2017 Kia Soul has 16 percent more space on the interior for up to five passengers to stretch out and relax in? The 2017 Soul has a nice 101 cubic feet of passenger room, and the 2017 JUKE has a paltry 86.7 cubic feet, making its interior similar to a subcompact car. And only the 2017 Soul passed the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's (NHTSA) impact testing and received a top mark of a 5-star (out of a possible 5) Overall Crash Safety Rating, while the 2017 JUKE has not been tested by the NHTSA. The 2017 Soul also impressed judges at U.S. News & World Report with its family-friendly features, and made the exclusive "2017 Best Cars for Families" list, which the 2017 JUKE did not make. And can you imagine trying to squeeze a family of five into that teeny JUKE interior and hope they stay comfortable on a long trip?
All told, the 2017 Kia Soul is priced to easily own, is spacious, has a fun boxy style and comes with safety and features that the JUKE cannot match.
