2020 Kia Soul Vs. 2019 Nissan Rogue Sport

2020 kia soul vs 2019 nissan rogue sport

Driving a subcompact crossover allows you to experience the best of outgoing, capable transportation as well as parkability and urban agility. These vehicles are engineered and designed to be confident travelers from Monday through Friday with the ability to store a ton of gear or equipment in them and live that weekend warrior life.

Having all but kickstarted this segment, the Kia Soul is no stranger to versatility. Since its debut over ten years ago, the Kia Soul has shown drivers everywhere that they can expect more from their daily driver – namely, the ability to enjoy some good, old-fashioned fun on the weekends, courtesy of their small SUV. For 2020, the Kia Soul is better than ever with standard technology like Apple CarPlay/Android Auto, a brand-new architecture that adds precision and confidence and more space than ever before. Today, we’re matching up the 2020 Kia Soul to Nissan’s subcompact SUV, the Rogue Sport.

No Contest Between Advanced Kia Soul and Light-On-Value Nissan Rogue Sport

As the above table illustrates, the 2020 Kia Soul continues the model’s proud heritage of offering more features for less. With the 2020 Kia Soul, you get an advanced powertrain (with available turbocharged engine), better fuel economy and a larger interior for maximum fun.

Amenities are no stranger for the Kia Soul, which sees popular features from the outgoing second-generation model, such as the lighted speaker surrounds, translated to a new era in the form of available, color-changing LED door panels.

On both models, you’ll find Apple CarPlay and Android Auto standard, but only the 2020 Kia Soul gives you the range of exterior styling and colors that have marked the model as one for those who know that there’s no such thing as “one size fits all.”
