|62.1 cu.-ft.||Cargo volume
The 2021 Kia Soul has two engine options, but the 2021 Nissan Kicks comes with a single engine option across all three trim levels. The Soul comes standard with a 2.0-liter 16-valve I-4 gas engine. This engine has a power output of 147 horsepower and a torque of 132 lb.-ft. It has a multi-port gasoline injection system and dual continuously variable valve timing (CVVT) to boost engine efficiency. The alternative engine is a 1.6-liter turbocharged I-4 with 16 valves that comes standard on all Soul Turbo versions. This engine produces up to 201 horsepower and 195 lb.-ft of torque using CVVT and gasoline direct injection.
The Soul will generally give you better acceleration than the Kicks if you're seeking something with a faster acceleration rate. The Soul can go from 0-60 MPH in 8.2 seconds, especially if you opt for the Turbo model, which comes with a more powerful engine. The Kicks, on the other hand, will take 9.7 seconds to accelerate from 0-60 MPH.
With the rear seat folded down, the cargo space in the trunk of the 2021 Kia Soul and the 2021 Nissan Kicks is comparable. The Soul will give you 24.2 cubic feet of storage capacity, while the Kicks will provide you with 25.3 cubic feet. On the other hand, the Soul has a lot more space when the back seat is folded down. While folding down the rear seat in your Kicks will only provide you 32.3 cubic feet of cargo capacity, the Soul will give you a generous 62.1 cubic feet. This is nearly twice as much space as the Nissan Kicks.
