Crossovers are the culmination of the desire to carry people and stuff along with you on your adventures. Tracking their rise, we can see that the 1970s gave us station wagons. The 1980s gave us extra interior space in the minivan. The 1990s had us all riding high in our body-on-frame SUVs and the 2000s saw these SUVs mixed with the construction of a car to form the crossover.
The subcompact crossover has perhaps been the biggest vehicle of the 2010s, seemingly rising out of nowhere to offer drivers the value and parkability of a subcompact car with the extra safety and cargo space of an SUV. The Kia Soul has led this charge. All-new for 2020, the Kia Soul’s third generation seeks to bring drivers all of the fun and functionality for which the model has become famous with some added style and brand-new features. Up against the 2020 Kia Soul today is the Toyota C-HR. Let’s see how they compare!
