If you’re looking for a reliable compact vehicle then the 2020 Kia Soul and 2019 Honda Fit are both strong options. But we’re here to break down which is the best choice for Leland customers when it comes to performance, interior features, and warranty.

Kia vs. Honda Performance

In terms of engine models, the Kia Soul and Honda Fit offer Carolina Beach customers similar configurations that yield similar performances, but those who opt for the Soul will have slightly greater horsepower.

  • Engines: The Kia Soul is equipped with a 147-hp 2.0L inline-4, and the Honda Fit runs on a 129-hp 1.5L inline-4 engine in the base trim. The top-tier GT-Line Turbo trim has a 201-hp GDI engine for extra performance.
  • Transmissions: With the Soul, you have the option of a six-speed manual transmission, an intelligent variable transmission, and a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission. The Fit comes with a two-speed CVT or six-speed manual.

Kia vs. Honda Interior Features

The Soul and Fit continue to exude many of the same interior features including five-passenger seating along with comparable cargo space, power locks and windows, split-folding rear seats, and steering wheel-mounted controls. However, the Kia Soul manages to outdo the Honda Fit in terms of available comfort and entertainment features that enhance the experience for Jacksonville drivers. See what else lies inside the 2019 Kia Soul:

  • Dual illuminated vanity mirrors
  • Satellite radio
  • Auxiliary jack
  • Six-speaker audio system
  • Overhead console storage
  • Optional automatic climate control

Kia vs. Honda Warranty

Despite the fact that the Soul costs a bit more than the Fit, it enables customers to take advantage of great warranties for even more peace of mind.

  • 2020 Kia Soul: 60-month/60,000-mile bumper-to-bumper warranty, 120-month/100,000-mile powertrain warranty, 60-month/60,000-mile roadside assistance
