2019 Honda Fit vs 2019 Kia Soul

There are a lot of people who think that bigger is always better. That might seem true for cars at first glance, but it’s not always so simple. Sometimes a little restraint is needed with a compact and efficiently sized car. 

A compact car can be a great asset in a bigger city. You will feel more nimble and agile in a smaller car. The size will also let you navigate through the city more easily and open up some parking spots that may not have been available for a bigger car. Some small cars don’t provide enough engagement for the driver, so let’s take a look at two popular cars. We’ll look at the 2019 Honda Fit and the 2019 Kia Soul to see which one is a better value.
