Style and Efficiency on the 2016 Kia Soul

When it comes to design, both the Kia Soul and the Jeep Renegade stand out from the competition. The boxy shape of each vehicle give them a modern appeal, with the Jeep coming across as more rugged and the Kia coming across as more refined. Under the hood, you'll find a base four-cylinder engine at the lowest trim of both the Renegade and the Soul. Both crossovers achieve up to 31 miles per gallon on the highway and almost 25 miles per gallon in the city. That means that even when you are running errands around town, your crossover is saving you money on fuel and offering you the convenient capability you need.
