2016 Kia Soul vs. 2017 Subaru Outback Review

Comparison Review

Convenience
With the Subaru Outback you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Kia Soul, due to its tank size and 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). Based on MSRP, the Kia Soul is clearly a better financial choice over the Subaru Outback. 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 Subaru Outback have similar Destination Charges.

Performance
The Kia Soul has less horsepower than the Subaru Outback, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

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

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