2014 Acura TSX vs. 2015 Kia Soul Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Kia Soul than the Acura TSX, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Acura TSX and the Kia Soul in the front seats.

Convenience
With the Acura TSX you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Kia Soul, due to its larger tank size and better fuel economy.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The Acura TSX will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Kia Soul, which has a much lower MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Acura TSX is much higher than that for the Kia Soul.

Dimensions
Since the Acura TSX is much wider than the Kia Soul, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Acura TSX, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Kia Soul.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Acura TSX transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Kia Soul.

Handling
The Acura TSX has a larger turning radius than the Kia Soul, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Acura TSX is somewhat more powerful than the Kia Soul.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Acura TSX and the Kia Soul. The Acura TSX has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Kia Soul.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Acura TSX is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Kia Soul.
