2020 Kia Soul vs 2020 Nissan Kicks

Serving Gainesville, FL

In the realm of smaller crossover SUVs, the Kia Soul has been a leading contender for years. From its impressive capabilities to its standout styling and overall value, it has been tough to beat. However, the Nissan Kicks seemingly gives the Soul a run for its money. Before you finalize your next crossover SUV selection, you need to get a full idea of how these models compare in essential areas.


The 2020 Kia Soul is easy to spot on the road thanks to its distinctive, cube-like façade. Its shape is combined with tall LED headlights, a three-bulb foglamp design and thin LED headlights for added touches of character. In comparison, the Kicks has a traditional crossover look with a smoothly tapered nose and an angled roof. For distinction, it has raised crossbars, a sharp angle through the rear windshield, and chrome-on-black molding.


The Kia Soul’s character and overall superiority are on full display inside the cabin as well. This crossover has standard equipment like smart device integration and a dual-zone auto climate control system. These are only available at higher Kicks trim levels. The Soul’s interior is unique with a large, rounded portal in the center of the dashboard that holds the touch display screen, the air vents, and other features. The 2020 Nissan Kicks has a traditional interior design with layered elements throughout the dashboard. The climate controls, air vents, and display screen are each featured in different layers.


Both of these crossovers are loaded with an I-4 engine as base equipment. A continuously variable transmission and front-wheel drive are also standard in both models. The 2020 Kia Soul produces 147 horsepower. In comparison, the 2020 Nissan Kicks generates 122 horsepower.
