What Makes the 2018 Kia Soul the Better Buy Over the 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport?

One of the best things about the 2018 Kia Soul is its funky shape and exciting color options (Clear White, Bright Silver, Titanium Gray, Alien 2, Shadow Black, White/Red, Wild Orange, Inferno Red, Inferno Red/Black, Caribbean Blue, and Mysterious Blue). These attributes make the 2018 Kia Soul very easy to spot in a crowded parking lot – and for your peers to know that you have arrived! The styling for the 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport, to put it politely, is "meh". 

The funky and boxy shape of the 2018 Kia Soul also allows for the most possible cargo space, which measures out to be 24.2 to 61.3 cubic feet when not outfitted with the Cargo Under Tray. 

In addition to the incredible amount of cargo space, you get a lot of bang for your buck with the 2018 Kia Soul thanks to a plethora of awesome interior features. These features include Siri® Eyes Free, Bluetooth® wireless technology with steering wheel-mounted buttons, UVO touchscreen display, USB jacks, and much more!
