2019 Kia Soul vs 2019 Honda Fit

While the hatchback segment used to be overrun with a bunch of unappealing looks, automakers have really stepped up their game and turned this class of car into something desirable. Kia has gone a step further and created a unique design in the Kia Soul. Unique in its own right, the Soul compares favorably against other hatchback options. See how it compares against a Honda favorite as we look at the 2019 Kia Soul vs 2019 Honda Fit.

All it takes is a quick look at these two and you’ll see that their designs are quite different.
