The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.6
7.3
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. There's a RAV4 for just about everyone, and while we applaud Toyota for adding more safety technology for 2017, the competition is worth a good look, too.
