The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.8
8.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2016 Honda HR-V smartly trades a little of the Fit's fuel economy for exuberant styling, more headroom, and optional all-wheel drive. The affordable, practical 2016 Kia Soul has a boxy style that fits right into urban environments, yet fits a lot inside.
