2018 Hyundai Elantra GT vs. 2018 Kia Soul

Comparisons


If you are looking for a car that has a fun-to-drive feel? Or, one that covers your needs from value sedan to luxury features? The 2018 Hyundai Elantra GT is value oriented, stylish and comes with an excellent warranty. The 2017 Elantra GT has been redesigned and new features have been added to keep it contemporary for 2018. This means that the 2018 Elantra GT is more efficient, offers blending comfort and even some sportiness. However, the Elantra GT has a close rival, the 2018 Kia Soul, which has almost the same features. Still, when you compare the two car models, you will find that the 2018 Hyundai Elantra beats the 2018 Kia Soul easily. Let’s see how.

Design & Style

When it comes to the interior, the 2018 Elantra GT is a size higher than its class. That means that the Elantra GT has slightly longer dimensions than the Kia Soul. Both cars seat the same number of people. However, the Elantra GT has a roomier cargo area than the Kia Soul. You can hold more items and bags in the Elantra GT than in the Kia Soul.

The Elantra GT’s exterior looks more sophisticated than the price tag suggests. Compared to the Kia Soul, the Elantra GT stands out with an integrated rear spoiler built into the trunk lid, front-wheel air curtains and an athletic stance. Other notable features that make the Elantra GT a comfortable ride include power windows and door locks, air conditioning, a 6-way driver’s seat with height adjustment among others.

Technology & Safety

The 2018 Elantra GT popular technology and safety equipment package includes a 7-inch touch screen display, hood insulation for a quitter ride, backup camera, cruise control, Bluetooth and Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility. It is fair to say that the 2018 Kia Soul also has amazing technology and safety features as well. However, most of the features in the Elantra GT that are standard are available in the Kia Soul as an option.

Performance

The 2018 Elantra GT is equipped with a 2.0-litre inline-4 engine, 150 lb-ft of torque @ 4,700, EPA highway/city fuel economy: 32/24 mpg (automatic) and a 162 horsepower @ 6,200. On the other hand, the 2018 Kia Soul has a 118 ft-lb of torque @ 4,850 rpm. The Elantra GT offers more fuel economy over long distances which makes it the best ride for drivers looking to explore. Its powerful engine is able to withstand rough terrains and offers a smooth ride.

The Bottom Line

As you can see, Hyundai has done an exceptional job in hyping its latest Elantra GT model. The 2018 Hyundai Elantra has more to offer drivers than just good looks. It is fair to say that the 2018 Kia Soul is a worthy component but it cannot match the 2018 Hyundai Elantra GT in terms of features and performance.
