Both the Sportage and the Soul offer seating space for up to five passengers and a cargo capacity of just over 60 cubic feet with the rear seats folded down. The Sportage is larger than the Soul, so there is more cargo space behind the second row, meaning that you can pack up for a weekend away without sacrificing seating space for passengers. 

The 2017 Kia Soul has three available engines, a 1.6-liter I-4, a 2.0-liter I-4, and a 1.6-liter turbocharged engine.  There are only two engines available for the 2017 Sportage; a base 2.4-liter I-4 and a 2.0-liter turbocharged I-4. Between the two crossover SUVs, the Sportage offers more horsepower and towing capability, but the 2017 Kia Soul has a higher city fuel economy rating, saving money for urban drivers who spend less time on the highway.
