The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.6
7.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2013 Kia Soul is both soulful and sensible--a distinctive, roomy, fun to drive alternative to staid small sedans or utility vehicles. The 2013 Nissan Cube is boxy alright, but in a way that prioritizes style and fashion, not outright practicality.
