2018 Kia Soul Vs 2018 Honda HR-V Old Saybrook, CT
Seemingly sprouting from out of nowhere, the subcompact crossover SUV class is enjoying a golden era in automotive sales. Drivers are looking for the versatility and efficiency of a smaller vehicle, but with room for stuff and a great exterior design. Among the leading vehicles in this renaissance class are both the 2018 Kia Soul and the 2018 Honda HR-V.
While the physical appearance of the two couldn’t be more different, they serve similar purposes – provide a safe and technologically connected way for drivers to take themselves and stuff from point A to point B. Seemingly designed to appear as a cross between the subcompact Honda Fit and the small crossover CR-V, the 2018 Honda HR-V maintains a staid and conventional design.
