2019 Kia Soul vs Honda HR-V EX

Kia Motors America had a simple start, selling just one model– the Kia Sephia– from 4 dealerships in Oregon. Kia moved nearly 600,000 cars in 2018 with the Kia Soul being among their most preferred models. Which model outpaces the other: the 2019 Kia Soul or the 2019 Honda HR-V? We put these small, sensible vehicles to the test. With the next generation Kia Soul anticipated to show up in ’20 the list of new features are strong but brief. These brand-new features are:

  • Rear cam now standard
  • Standard features include Auto headlights
  • Inferno Red paint color available on Base trim
2019 kia soul vs honda hrv comparison


PERFORMANCE:

In these Sport Utility Vehicles, performance is ranked by guest comfort and MPGs, not horsepower and 1/4 mile times. Both Sport Utility Vehicles include a smaller sized 4-cylinder, and even with the Kia Soul’s 60 horsepower boost over the Honda HR-V it makes just 201hp. The Soul has a 7-speed dual clutch automatic while the HR-V has a CVT. Speed freaks they are not, but if you require something comfortable, with seating for 5, and solid fuel efficiency then either automobile would certainly be a solid choice. The HR-V being somewhat more miserly on fuel and the Soul being much more fun to drive.


DESIGN:

While the HR-V shares style hints from the rest of the Honda line up, the Soul has a look all its very own. The big available HID headlights coupled with the available LED Fog Lights show off the Soul’s enjoyable character. A few of the other outside features of the Soul are:

  • LED Turn-Signal Indicators that are Mirror-Attached
  • Powered Folding Outside Mirrors are Optional
  • Panoramic Sunroof with Power Sunshade is Available
  • LED Rear Combination Lamps Available

While the Honda is no slouch when it pertains to exterior features such as the Lane Keeping Assistant System, the Soul edges out the HR-V on appearances and fun features.

The Soul provides a functional cabin and from there it adds a storage capability large enough to bring an elephant. Okay, the elephant part is a little bit of an overestimation however you could practically fill up the cargo area with 450 gallons of milk (it’s true). The HR-V is well equipped and has a good storage area, but both are inadequate when contrasted with the Kia.


TECHNOLOGY:

Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay™ are complementary on both Sport Utility Vehicles. You can’t obtain Navigation or an updated audio system in the HR-V, yet both are alternatives in the Soul. If you go with the Harmon/Kardon® Audio System (Part of the Tech Pkg) you’ll likewise obtain the enjoyable Speaker Lights option. These speaker lights are placed on the front doors and can pulse to your music and also change colors. Various other choices include:

  • Heated Front and Rear Seats, 8″ Touch-Screen Display, Blind Spot Detection, Rear Cross Traffic Alert

The Honda does offer some unique features such as Lane Keeping Assist and Lane Departure warning however it is missing crucial options like Blind Spot Detection and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert.
