The only crossover on the list, the Kia Soul offers boatloads of style and a tall boxy shape that provides generous space for its size and a high seating position. Easy to drive smoothly, it's not ultimate power that makes the Soul so impressive, it's the vehicle's nuance and poise. A six-speed manual is standard; a CVT automatic transmission is a $1,500 option. However, if you want any advanced safety gear, you'll have to opt for the S trim, which costs an additional $1,680 over the LX, but includes an automatic transmission as standard equipment.
