TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2011 Kia Soul is fashion-forward and fun-to-drive—and unlike most of its urban-wagon rivals, it's just as practical as it looks. The 2011 Nissan Cube looks like nothing else, while being surprisingly practical. Whether you see the 2011 Scion xB as trendy or odd, it packs a lot of space and versatility into a compact space.
