Updated Kia Soul Steams Ahead of C-HR

Shoppers around Tampa Bay who are looking for a spacious crossover need to look no further than the 2021 Kia Soul. The Soul offers plenty of space for front- and back-row passengers, with 38.8 inches of legroom for those in the rear row. The 24.2 cubic feet of cargo space in the back of the Soul makes daily commutes easy, and with up to 62.1 cubic feet of maximum cargo space, the Soul can be a perfect match for your next camping trip. The competing 2020 Toyota C-HR offers far less space for its passengers and cargo. Rear-seat passengers get just 31.7 inches of legroom in the C-HR and drivers can use just 19.1 cubic feet of standard cargo space for their everyday essentials.

The 2021 Soul offers a variety of updates over last year’s model, such as a 10-way power driver’s seat and a power sunroof in select models. Kia Soul models are equipped with a lineup of driver assistance and safety features to keep drivers feeling confident behind the wheel. Some of the standout safety features available in the 2021 Soul include Driver Attention Warning, Blind Spot Collision Warning, Lane Change Assist, and Lane Keeping Assist.

When shoppers choose the 2021 Soul they will receive the Kia brand’s 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty. The C-HR, on the other hand, can only offer drivers a 5-year/60,000-mile warranty.
