2015 Kia Soul vs. 2015 Volvo V60 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 Volvo V60. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Kia Soul and the Volvo V60 in the front seats.

Convenience
The Volvo V60 requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Kia Soul, 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). Based on MSRP, the Kia Soul is clearly a better financial choice over the Volvo V60. 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 carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Volvo V60.

Dimensions
Since the Kia Soul is much slimmer than the Volvo V60, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Kia Soul, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Volvo V60.

Drivetrain
The Kia Soul has much less torque than the Volvo V60, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Kia Soul has a smaller turning radius than the Volvo V60, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Kia Soul is significantly less powerful than the Volvo V60. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Kia Soul and the Volvo V60. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Kia Soul will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Volvo V60.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Kia Soul than that of the Volvo V60.
