The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.6
7.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2014 Kia Soul doesn’t stray from its iconic profile, but it dons more sophistication inside and underneath—with fewer compromises and all in the name of city-friendly, tall-wagon goodness. Tall wagons aren't a thing here, yet, but the 2014 Fiat 500L gives us one more reason to ask, why not?
