The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.6
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The affordable, practical 2016 Kia Soul has a boxy style that fits right into urban environments, yet fits a lot inside. The mildly updated 2015 MINI Countryman is a versatile compact crossover, one of the smallest on the market, that maintains MINI's character and fun-to-drive spirit.
