The 2018 Kia Soul and the 2018 Chevy Trax are both similar compact crossover SUVs, however upon further inspection you'll find the Soul outperforms the Trax across almost all the most popular categories.

While both the Soul and the Trax feature a 60/40 split-folding rear seat, the Soul offers over 12 additional feet of cargo capacity. The Soul also offers more front hip room, rear shoulder room and second-row headroom.

Both the Kia Soul and the Chevy Trax offer comparable fuel economy, however, the Soul offers a more powerful output (both torque and horsepower).

And while you can build both the Soul and the Trax with similar interior features (including a color touchscreen display with Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay™ connectivity), it will cost you much more with the Trax. A base model Soul - while offering similar, if not better specs - is almost $5,000 less expensive than a new Trax! The choice is easy!
