The 2018 Kia Soul vs the Competition

Everyone has different standards when it comes to finding a new car. Some people enjoy all the best in safety features, others enjoy lots of fun and hi-tech entertainment gadgets. You might be looking for a more affordable ride that still has the right amount of safety and flair for a lower price. Well, we here at Koons Kia Woodbridge have just the hatchback SUV for you: the 2018 Kia Soul. Now, we can describe all of this hatchback's impressive features to you, but a better option would be for us to show them to you by comparing it with another well-known SUV in its class, the 2018 Toyota RAV4.
