The staff there are wonderful and really work hard to make sure that they meet your needs. Jay helped us through the whole experience and was always positive and willing to answer all of our questions at any time of the day. My fiance and I had very specific needs for our vehicle and Jay worked with us through everything to make sure we found the car we both wanted and needed that fit our specifications. Unlike certain dealers in the area, never once did we feel pressured to buy immediately, Jay made sure that what we were looking at was exactly what we wanted. He made sure that we were comfortable with the whole car buying experience and were 100% satisfied with what we picked out. Thank you Jay and World Car! You definitely have our business any time we need a new car!

I just went there for an oil change. Reception was fine, service was timely and they offer coffee and WiFi free of charge. I was happy. They also washed my car for free. Can't beat that.

Rudy is the friendliest, kindest guy you could meet when shopping for a car. I could write a whole essay about how nice and thoughtful he is, but the most important thing is that he listens to you. He will listen to you when you tell him what you need and want and he will do his best for you. I met him through my dad when I bought my first car. He knew I was already in love with the Soul, but he made sure I didn't leave without being completely informed on all its features. I referred my fiance Brandon to him a year later when he was replacing his used car. Rudy helped him through the process of buying and familiarizing him with the Optima that Brandon had chosen. A month didn't even pass before we got a referral check from him in the mail. Whether you know what you want already or not - Rudy can help you out. I highly recommend speaking to him if you stop by. And if he's reading this, thank you again for everything!

If you’ve been searching long and hard for a compact car with a performance that doesn’t quit and an incredible interior, then look no further than then 2018 Kia Soul. We’ve done some research here at World Car Kia New Braunfels and are about to show you how it compares to one of its greatest competitors – the 2018 Honda Fit. After you’ve seen why the Soul comes out on top, visit our dealership during our convenient business hours to take it for a test drive!

Performance

Let’s jump right into this comparison with the performance capabilities of these two compact cars. In true Kia fashion, you have more than one engine to choose from when it comes to the Soul. Whether you go with the available 2.0L 4-cylinder engine or available 1.6L 4-cylinder with turbocharger engine, you’ll be getting that power you’ve been wanting each time you press your foot to the pedal. Its available 2.0L 4-cylinder powertrain provides you with 161 horsepower and 150 lb.-ft. of torque. Let’s say you went with the available 1.6L 4-cylinder with turbocharger engine. This powerhouse delivers an awe-inspiring 201 horsepower and 195 lb.-ft of torque, so you know you’ll be getting where you need to be in record time. Unfortunately, the Fit only comes with one engine and even if you went with a higher trim, such as the Sport or EX-L, you’d only have a measly 130 horsepower and 128 lb.-ft of torque through its 1.5L 4-cylinder engine, so you won’t feel that thrill when you step on the accelerator and you might be arriving to your final destination later than anticipated. You also won’t be making constant stops at the gas station with the Soul thanks to its 14.2 gallon fuel tank capacity. Instead, you’ll be doing a lot more cruising down Interstate 35 and saving yourself some mean green too! Sadly, the Fit only comes with a 10.6 gallon fuel capacity, you’ll be paying the pump a visit a lot more than you intend to. The Soul was built for any adventure!

Interior

Now, let’s chat about the interior differences of these spectacular models. It’s no secret that both the 2018 Soul and 2018 Fit will provide you with comfort and allow you to relax as you cruise, but the Soul takes things to another level. When you’re traveling with your best friend or significant other, both of you will get to stretch out just how you want thanks to the 55.5 inches of shoulder room and 53.2 inches of hip room. In the Fit, you might be bumping shoulders and feeling cramped as you drive since you’ll only have 54.8 inches of shoulder room and 51.5 inches of hip room in the front. When you’re planning a camping trip or weekend getaway, you’ll love that you can pack all your bags, clothes, and other needed gear in the Soul since it comes with a total of 61.3 cubic ft. of cargo space. You’ll have to leave items behind in the Fit since it only provides you with 52.7 cubic ft. of maximum cargo space. In the center console of both compact cars is a screen display, so you can access your apps and playlists when you’re on the go. The Soul, however, comes standard with a standard 7-inch touchscreen, while the Fit’s is a 5-inch LCD display. You have the option of having a 7-inch touchscreen in the Fit, but only if you upgrade to its next trim, the Sport, which means spending more money once again. No words will go unheard in the Soul thanks to its 6-speakers system and you’ll be feeling like you’re at a front-row concert each time you’re behind the wheel. Unfortunately, the Fit only comes with 4 speakers, so some words might get muffled out by the traffic noise you deal with during your commutes. Once again, the Soul outshines the Fit and proves it’s ready for all the journeys you plan to set out on!

Now that you’ve seen some of the differences in the 2018 Kia Soul vs 2018 Honda Fit in New Braunfels, TX,  comparison, we hope it’s clear that the Fit is the one and only choice to go with! Come down to World Car Kia New Braunfels to check out all of its other impressive features when you have some free time. See you soon!
