2019 Kia Rio vs 2019 Kia Soul
Those familiar with Kia know that Kia always presents the best value for an incredibly low price. This is present in every Kia model, but far more focused with their 2 most affordable models. Those models are the Kia Rio compact sedan and the Kia Soul CUV. If you’re looking for a new yet affordable model, we’d definitely recommend either. However, which one is the right Kia model for you? Let’s find out! It’s the 2019 Kia Rio vs the 2019 Kia Soul!
2019 Kia Rio Compact vs 2019 Kia Soul CUV
|Model||2019 Kia Rio||2019 Kia Soul|
|Baseline Engine||1.6L Inline 4||1.6L Inline 4|
|Standard Transmission||6-Speed Shiftable Automatic||6-Speed Manual|
|Standard Drivetrain||Front-Wheel Drive||Front-Wheel Drive|
|Combined Fuel Economy (mpg)||32||27|
|Fuel Tank Capacity (gal.)||11.9||14.2|
|Maximum Cargo Capacity (ft3)||13.7||49.5|
So, as we can see, both are good options.
Neither the 2019 Rio nor the 2019 Soul has a ton of power, but their lightweight builds don’t require a lot of engine heft to still provide responsive controls and acceleration on the road.
The main difference, as we can see, is by build.
The 2019 Kia Rio is more affordable and has a greater fuel economy but has less cabin space and cargo capacity.
Meanwhile, the 2019 Kia Soul has more cabin space and cargo room with its CUV build, but its bigger size and weight means it’s a bit pricier and has a lesser fuel economy.
