The 2018 Kia Soul puts style ahead of safety features and turbo power.

Pros
Looks sharp
Good Uvo infotainment
Turbo-4 power
Versatile hatchback body
Still a manual on the order sheet

Cons
Engines can be noisy
6-speed automatic hunts through gears
Mediocre gas mileage
Top safety tech unavailable with turbo

The 2018 Kia Soul ranked #1 in Compact Cars. Currently the Kia Soul has a score of 9.1 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 45 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Comfortable, roomy cabin
Considerable cargo space
Upscale interior
Energetic turbocharged engine available
Outstanding warranty and predicted reliability rating

Cons
Sluggish base engine
Below-average gas mileage

By:

Only a few changes were made to the Soul for 2018. The base Soul’s Convenience package now gets an upgraded UVO3 infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, plus automatic climate control. Midrange Soul Plus models now get the UVO3 system as standard.

Pros
Funkiness on wheels,
powerful and efficient turbo engine,
comfortable cabin.

Cons
Average cargo capacity,
no all-wheel-drive option.

If you want a small car that’s well-equipped, relatively spacious and styled like a chunky SUV then the Renault Captur is in with a shout

Pros
Cheap running costs
Spacious for a small car
Funky looks

Cons
Noisy diesel engines
Not much fun to drive
No four-wheel-drive option

By: 
carwow.co.uk

The updated Renault Captur is still a looker, and is cheaper to own and run than you might imagine. The flagship Zen is an interesting Hyundai Kona/Toyota C-HR/Mazda CX-3 rival.

Pros
Looks great, brimming with character
Agile urban dynamics
None of your friends own one
Cheaper to own/run than you'd think...

Cons
No airbags for rear passengers
Unsettled over sharp bumps
EDC transmission less suitable than a torque-converter-style unit

Pros
