2015 Kia Soul vs. 2014 Scion xB Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Kia Soul offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Scion xB with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Kia Soul and the Scion xB in the front seats.

Convenience
The Kia Soul will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Scion xB, making it more convenient to drive.

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 Kia Soul is somewhat more expensive than the Scion xB. 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 Scion xB have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Kia Soul is much wider than the Scion xB, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. The Kia Soul is slightly shorter than the Scion xB, which may make it easier to park.

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

Handling
The Kia Soul has about the same turning radius as the Scion xB, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

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

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Kia Soul and the Scion xB.

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