What alternatives should I consider to a used Kia Soul hatchback?

The most natural rival to the Kia Soul is the Nissan Juke, which is a little cheaper to run than the Soul, but suffers from a firm ride, cramped rear seats and a small boot.

Or you could go for a Mini Countryman, which features a better-made, more stylish interior, a more fashionable badge, and far cheaper running costs – though you’ll pay an awful lot more for one of these in the first place, and there are some question marks over reliability.

If you’re after a practical small car, the Renault Captur is very clever, though it isn’t all that fast, and can’t quite match the Soul for rear seat space.
