When searching for eye-catching compacts with economical power and comfortable front and rear cabins, the 2019 Kia Soul and 2019 Honda Fit will both make the short list. So, which is the better pick for Jackson shoppers? Based on features and warranty coverage, we’re convinced it’s the new Kia Soul. Compare the Kia Soul vs. Honda Fit below, starting with their base trim levels!

Fit vs. Soul: Performance

A quick look at performance specs shows the Soul provides some more powerful options:

  • Engines: Choose between two engines on the Honda Fit with either a 128-hp 1.5L inline-4 or 130-hp 1.5L inline-4 engine. The Kia Soul is only offered with a single engine: a 130-hp 1.6L inline-4.
  • Transmissions: With the Soul, you have the option of a 6-speed manual or 6-speed automatic transmission. The Fit can be had with a 2-speed CVT or 6-speed manual.
  • Fuel Economy: Of the two, the Fit is more fuel-efficient; it earns 33 mpg city/40 mpg highway. The Soul earns 25 mpg city/30 mpg highway, but the newest 2020 version is even more efficient.

Fit vs. Soul: Interior Features

With similar sizing and price range, the Kia Soul and Honda Fit offer some overlapping interior features. Both seat five passengers and include comparable cargo space, as well as split-folding rear seats, power locks and windows, and steering wheel-mounted controls. The Kia Soul interior, however, offers a few more comfort and technology features for Brandon families to enjoy, which include:

  • Satellite radio
  • 6-speaker audio system
  • Auxiliary jack
  • Overhead console storage
  • Dual illuminated vanity mirrors
  • Optional automatic climate control

Kia vs. Honda: Warranty

While the Soul initially costs a bit more than the Fit, the price is made up for by the extended warranty coverage of the Soul. With the Soul, Ridgeland drivers will get a 60-month/60,000-mile bumper-to-bumper warranty; the Fit’s warranty lasts 36 months/36,000 miles. Additionally, you can expect a 120-month/100,000-mile powertrain warranty vs. 60 months/60,000 miles from the Fit. Roadside assistance is also longer lasting with the Soul: 60-month/60,000-miles vs. 36-month/36,000-miles.
