The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.4
8.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2014 Nissan Cube is a boxy fashion statement that puts an emphasis on style, but at the expense of some practicality. 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.
