Alternatives

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

If you’re buying on a budget, we’d recommend taking a look at the Renault Captur instead. It’s terrific value second-hand and comes with a range of frugal turbocharged powerplants, although it can’t match the Soul’s reliability record.

An even stronger alternative is the Suzuki Vitara, which is good to drive, practical, versatile, comfortable and well equipped, although it usually costs a little more than the Soul to buy.

One of the most popular rivals to the Soul is the Nissan Juke, which has even more distinctive styling and a perky 1.2-litre petrol turbo engine. However, it's inferior to the Soul in most other respects, with a small boot, a firm ride and a plasticky interior.
