The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

8.2
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. The 2014 Hyundai Veloster is more sporty coupe than sports car; but with available turbo power and a standout three-door design it isn't short on excitement and flair.
