Arguably, the most iconic Kia vehicle is the 2018 Kia Soul. When you're looking for a compact crossover vehicle, your eyes will likely be drawn to the boxy, modern visage of the Kia Soul. While looks aren't everything, it is always important to be able to pick your vehicle out from a crowd. With a model from Nissan, you'll find that most options offered look fairly similar to the other vehicles on the road. With a Kia, you won't have to sacrifice style for the other benefits you're looking for.
With every passing year, vehicles are getting safer and safer. If you're looking at a new Nissan vehicle, you'll have access to some advanced drivers features on some trim levels on select models. With a Kia model, like the 2018 Kia Optima, you'll have access to standard blind spot detection, lane change assist, and rear cross-traffic alert. Many of the 2018 Kia models have found their way onto the Top Safety Pick Plus list from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.
One of the first things that drivers need to consider is their vehicle's performance. Even those who aren't looking for an SUV model like the 2018 Kia Sorento will want to make sure that they'll have a vehicle that is able to handle anything. The 2018 Kia Sorento offers drivers two different engine options, while drivers who opt for the 2018 Nissan Murano will only have one engine to pick, a 260 horsepower, 3.5L V6. On the 2018 Kia Sorento, the maximum performance is 290 horsepower from the 3.3L v6 engine.
Most drivers do not like being separated from their devices. Most new models provide drivers with technologies that make it easy to connect their devices to the infotainment systems, making it easier and safer to stay connected on the road. Whether you choose a Kia or a Nissan, you'll be able to find Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay™. However, on your Kia vehicle, you'll have the UVO eservices system which provides a variety of services that can make driving even easier.
