In the world of performance automotive, hatchbacks have gained a sort of cult following for their prowess as alternatives to two-door performance coupes. These “hot hatches” as their known promise the fun and power of a sports car in a design that is both uniquely styled and somewhat practical for weekday use. It’s like getting the best of all worlds in a single, five-door vehicle. Although the Kia Soul overlaps a lot of segments such as crossover, station wagon and hatchback, the available turbocharged engine puts it well within “hot hatch” territory.
Today, we’re comparing the 2020 Kia Soul GT-Line 2.0 to the 2020 Kia Soul GT-Line 1.6T. Not only do these two models diverge on the powertrains they offer, but there are some features as well you’ll find exclusive to either one.
