As a subcompact crossover, the Kia Soul should come with reasonable interior space expectations. One would assume it is more spacious than a sedan, but it also isn’t as bulky as a midsize SUV. The Soul brings versatility to the table, which is one of its biggest strengths. Initially, the Kia Soul has 18.8 cubic feet of interior cargo space. Since the Soul has two rows of seats, just one of them can be folded down to make more room for cargo. When the back row is folded down, that interior space increases to 49.5 cubic feet. As for passenger space, when all seats are upright there are 101 cubic feet available and the occupant capacity is 5.
