Buying a new car can be frustrating sometimes because there are many options out there, making it harder for you to find the one that suits your preferences and that you can rely on.
At Eastside Kia, we make this experience smoother for you by using our expertise to help you locate the best-fit vehicle for you.
If you’re looking for a new compact SUV, one that takes you through every weather condition and terrain in Canada, the new Kia Seltos and Kia Soul models are your best shots. The two flagships will never disappoint you, and they’re equipped with all means of safety, technology, and robust performance to make every trip memorable. Here’s how we compare these two.
The 2022 Kia Soul comes with a solar windshield that reflects the sun's rays and maintains that interior temperature. Besides that, the car has tinted windows to make you feel comfortable in your private space. Looking at the front of the car, you’ll see the chrome-coloured front grille.
While the other Seltos SUV gives you extended options for outdoor adventures, with roof rails, splash guards over the 17-inch wheels, and automatic lights. The LED headlights, running lights, and positioning lights give you enough illumination to make your trip smoother.
The sunroof in the Kia Soul makes your interior more lively, which is easy to control because it’s power-adjusted. The spacious interior welcomes up to five passengers on board with a large cargo space, which you can increase with 60/40 folding back seats.
The new 2022 Kia Seltos takes comfortability to another level with leather-wrapped finishes, heated steering wheel and seats. In addition to that, the internal illumination system makes your car shine from within.
The team at Kia powered these two models with technological touches. For example, the 2022 Kia Soul adds a new experience with sound-reactive mood lights, which change the cabin’s lights according to the music you play. On the other hand, the Seltos model offers a convenient wireless charging hub equipped with a 12V outlet socket and a USB port.
Besides that, cutting-edge technology is added to ensure your safety. Both models include Advanced Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist, which detects any object approaching from the front and may apply breaks if needed. Additionally, the rear-view camera gives you an extended vision of your surroundings.
The robust 2.0L MPI engine powers both vehicles, giving horsepower of more than 145 at 6,200 rpm. Even better, the engine is economical, consuming not more than 8.5 L/100km in the city and 7.1 L/100km on the highway.
The excellent features of the 2022 Kia Seltos are available at a starting price of only $23,595 and with five more trims up to $33,195 for the SX Turbo trim.
However, the Kia Soul gives a more pocket-friendly option with a lower starting price of $21,295, which increases as you pick a higher trim up to $29,395.
