2019 Kia Soul

2019 Honda HR-V

  • Available 2.0L engine with 161-hp and 150 lb.-ft. of torque
  • Available 1.6L turbo engine with 201-hp and 195 lb.-ft. of torque
  • Available 8-inch touchscreen
  • Standard Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™
  • Single 1.8L engine with 141-hp and 127 lb.-ft. of torque across all trims
  • Available 7-inch touchscreen
  • Upgrade to Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™

It’s easy to think that the 2019 Kia Soul is a niche vehicle, only targeted towards those looking for a modern, unique ride, but it’s far more than that! This SUV actually surpasses many of the other options on the market with its powerful engine options, advanced technology, and comfortable interior. At Weseloh Kia, we want to back up these words by proving it right here. We’re going to compare everything the Soul has to offer with a popular SUV choice this year—the 2019 Honda HR-V.

Performance

The 2019 Honda HR-V is equipped with a 1.8L 4-cylinder engine that delivers 141 horsepower and 127 lb.-ft. of torque. These certainly aren’t terrible specs, but they’re very limiting to the driver. Many will be disappointed that this is the only option for the HR-V, so even if you dish out a lot of extra money to reach its highest trim level, you’ll still be stuck with the same powertrain. The Soul on the other hand has multiple engines to offer! Its first upgrade is to a 2.0L I-4 engine that delivers 161 horsepower and 150 lb.-ft. of torque, already far higher than what the Honda can provide. But you can upgrade even further to a 1.6L I-4 turbo engine that roars out 201 horsepower and 195 lb.-ft. of torque. If you’re looking for the ride with the most power, the Soul is definitely the way to go.

Entertainment

When it comes to entertainment and technology, you shouldn’t be surprised that the 2019 Kia Soul wins out once again. This all starts with the available touchscreen options for these vehicles. Both come standard with a 5-inch display, but the Soul can be upgraded to include UVO1 with an 8-inch touchscreen display, premium navigation, and HD radio. The Honda, on the other hand, is only able to reach a 7-inch diagonal display, substantially smaller than what the Kia can provide. You’ll also find that the Soul continues to have more immediately available technology. For instance, Apple CarPlay™2 and Android Auto™3 are available on the Soul Base trim, while the HR-V will need to be upgraded to a higher trim level to enjoy such simple features. Finally, the Soul has an available sound system complete with speaker lights to pulse and match the beat of your music. The Honda has no such feature.

Comfort

We’ll conclude by looking at how comfortable you’ll be behind the wheels of these vehicles when you settle in for a long road trip. It all starts with the driver’s seat. The HR-V does its best, offering an 8-way power-adjustable chair as its highest upgrade. The Kia, however, still manages to come out ahead with a 10-way power-adjustable chair with Power Lumbar Support. The Soul also features available ventilated front seats, perfect for when temperature start to become scorching hot and you don’t want to sweat and stick to your chair. The HR-V doesn’t have this available on any trim level. Finally, for those days when you need to pack up all your gear, the Soul has 61.3 cubic ft. maximum cargo volume4. The HR-V again comes out the worse with 58.8 cubic ft. maximum cargo volume5. 

We hope it’s now obvious that there’s no contest between the 2019 Kia Soul vs 2019 Honda HR-V near North County, CA. The Soul outclasses Honda’s SUV in nearly every arena! We’d encourage you to see this model for yourself, so stop by Weseloh Kia soon for a test drive.

I had an amazing experience working with Tyler at Weseloh. I drive past the store everyday on my way to the office and often look to see if they received any new cars that would be good to keep at my Park City house. I am always impressed with the quality of inventory and one day found exactly what I was looking for. After I inquired about a new SUV they got in stock, Tyler immediately emailed me back and made himself readily available to address my needs . It was ready for me to test drive when I got there. All of my questions were answered right away. We quickly agreed on a fair price and the paperwork was a breeze. It is refreshing to work with genuinely nice and friendly people. Tyler went above and beyond delivering the car to my office. To top it off, he even helped install the roof racks that came with the car. The customer experience I received was exceptional and rare in today's marketplace. I highly recommend Weseloh for all your car buying needs.

Mike Lambresi does an outstanding job at running this Kia Store! Coupled with his team Robert in sales and Sean in Fiance. This trio made the deal smooth and easy! I called up and pre negeocated my purchase. Nothing but honesty and integrity. My financing was in place within a few hours with multiple options of financing for our situation. Sean in the finance department had us in and out 35 mins! Painless!! I suggest you ask for him the next time your buy a car from Weselol Kia in Carlsbad. You’ll be happy you I did as I am! THANK YOU ALL again for helping my daughter dial in a great deal with creative financing on a Nice car that was fast and easy!! . - Very happy customer!!

I was very happy with my experience in purchasing a car from this dealership. I can recommend Tyler as a sales person that I would work with again in a heartbeat. I reached out to multiple Kia dealers before opting to work with this one. Yeah, there was some price negotiation, but it was all very reasonable and respectful and I drove away happy.

We went in with one specific car in mind. A red Kia Niro hybrid EX we saw on their website. I'd been pining for the niro for months. Since I test drove it back in (March?)! I've had bad experiences at many car dealer ships. My credit isn't perfect and I often find dealers PUSHING me into a car THEY pick for me. Weseloh Kia was the exception. Ryan was good to us. Hearing our concerns. Working with the numbers we were laying out for him. What we expected to pay versus what we were seeing. They worked magic with those numbers. Though we're paying more than expected, it was mistakes on our part, not theirs. I'm vastly happy with the help we received and the vehicle I got. On top of that, the finance department was top notch! Sean G. was extremely transparent and even offered us a deal on our extended coverage. When we need a new car, I will definitely be visiting Weseloh FIRST!!!

Had another great car buying experience yesterday at Weseloh Kia. I normally despise buying cars. Daniel Skerry who helped me was amazing! Very responsive, honest, no nonsense, and gave me a great deal on a new Stinger without all the back and forth. If you are thinking about a Kia you should definitely go to Weseloh and talk to Daniel. :) I LOVE my car!!!

What a great organization...just totaled my suv so walked through every dealership around Weseloh Kia as well as all the dealerships on Escondido auto row. I ended up with a Kia Soul excellent handling, interior and options. My salesman Tyler Gohring was very knowledgeable, personable and just downright a pleasure to work with. I'm an old fart and Tyler was very patient helping me to understand all the whistles and bells. Hope he has enough time to ride around with me for the next month or so till it all sinks in.

my husband and i walked into this dealership with no clue how the process went with buying a new car or what we were even interested in. within minutes of arriving we were greeted by Tommy with his amazing customer service! he took the time to show us what we thought you were interested in and what he thought we could potentially be interested in. we came pretty late that night but tommy was in no rush to get us out of there and even stayed after hours to help us find our dream car. with all our questions and or going back and fourth deciding what car we wanted, tommy never stopped helping up or seemed annoyed that we were asking so many questions like many other care salesmen may be at times. morale of the story is that my husband and i drove our dream car off the lot the next night all because of tommy and his amazing work! he did whatever he could to assure we were satisfied and helped the best we could! thank you so much wesleoh Kia for all your help and for making our first car purchase the best!

Steve Uyeno is the real thing. Got a car there. Tiny bit of negotiating as expected. Everything super smooth. Service like luxury car brands. Steve converted me!!! You can't do better.
