Drivers searching for a new vehicle may find themselves deciding between the 2019 Toyota Corolla vs the 2019 Kia Soul. The 2019 Toyota Corolla is an iconic sedan that’s been since its 1966 debut, while the 2019 Kia Soul is a popular option for drivers looking for an SUV. Despite the different body styles, there’s still many points of comparison worth noting between both vehicles.
The 2019 Toyota Corolla is offered in six trim levels, double the amount of available trims for the 2019 Kia Soul. Every 2019 Corolla model comes equipped with a 1.8-liter, four-cylinder engine which produces 132 horsepower and 128 pound-feet of torque. This engine outperforms the 2019 Soul’s 1.6-liter, four-cylinder engine with 130 horsepower and 118 pound-feet of torque.
Modern drivers expect new vehicles to offer plenty of exciting features and helpful technology systems. The 2019 Corolla has an infotainment system which is controlled through a 6.1-inch touchscreen interface. This screen is larger (and as a result, more readable at a distance) than the 2019 Soul’s 5-inch touchscreen display.
All 2019 Corolla models come with features such as adaptive cruise control, a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, a height-adjustable driver seat, Bluetooth connectivity, a USB port and a rearview camera. Drivers interested in the five higher trims of the 2019 Corolla have access to optional features such as heated mirrors, a sunroof and keyless entry and ignition.
Standard 2019 Toyota Corolla safety features include: Stability control, emergency braking assistance, a pre-collision safety system, traction control, tire pressure monitoring, LED headlamps, passenger airbag occupant sensing deactivation, front and rear head airbags, child seat anchors, a lane departure warning accident avoidance system, dual front side-mounted airbags, an engine immobilizer, rear door child safety locks and daytime running lights.
