Comparison Review

Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the Honda Fit than in the Kia Soul, due to the Honda Fit's smaller rear head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Honda Fit and the Kia Soul in the front seats.

With the Kia Soul you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Honda Fit, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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 Honda Fit is clearly a better financial choice over the Kia Soul. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Honda Fit carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Kia Soul.

Since the Honda Fit is much slimmer than the Kia Soul, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The Honda Fit is slightly shorter than the Kia Soul, which may make it easier to park.

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

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

The Honda Fit has less horsepower than the Kia Soul, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Honda Fit and the Kia Soul. The Honda Fit has less cargo capacity than the Kia Soul, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

The basic warranty of the Honda Fit is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Kia Soul.
