Is the 2020 Kia Soul or 2020 Kia Sportage Right for Me?

The 2020 Kia Soul and the 2020 Kia Sportage are both great vehicles but choosing one model over the other is going to depend on your lifestyle as well as your personal style. 

If standout styling is a priority for you, then the 2020 Kia Soul will suit you perfectly thanks to its funky, box-shaped silhouette and several bright color options. While the 2020 Kia Soul is classified as a subcompact crossover (which makes it a great choice for urban singles, couples, or small families who regularly commute and go on occasional road trips), it offers a comparable amount of cargo space as the 2020 Kia Sportage thanks to the boxy shape. 

While boasting a more traditional crossover styling, the 2020 Kia Sportage is still very attractive thanks to its sculpted silhouette and prominent headlights. It can easily be spotted in a crowded parking lot or at the busy school pick-up zone. As a compact crossover, the 2020 Kia Sportage offers plenty of space for everyday living along with road tripping with your favorite people.  

Both models are available with all-wheel drive so you can travel with confidence when the winter season arrives. 

Like we said, we love the 2020 Kia Soul and 2020 Kia Sportage equally. In order to decide which model is right for you, come visit us here at Performance Kia and take them out for a test drive!
