2015 Kia Soul vs. 2014 MINI MINI-Clubman Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Kia Soul than the MINI MINI-Clubman. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Kia Soul and the MINI MINI-Clubman in the front seats.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Kia Soul as you will with the MINI MINI-Clubman, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

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). Based on MSRP, the Kia Soul is clearly a better financial choice over the MINI MINI-Clubman. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Kia Soul and the MINI MINI-Clubman have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Kia Soul is much wider than the MINI MINI-Clubman, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Kia Soul, which is slightly longer than the MINI MINI-Clubman.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Kia Soul doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the MINI MINI-Clubman.

Handling
The Kia Soul has a smaller turning radius than the MINI MINI-Clubman, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Kia Soul has less horsepower than the MINI MINI-Clubman, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
The Kia Soul offers greater seating capacity than the MINI MINI-Clubman, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Kia Soul will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the MINI MINI-Clubman.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Kia Soul than that of the MINI MINI-Clubman.
