With their commute-friendly performance and savvy in-car technology, the 2020 Chevrolet Trax and Kia Soul are fierce competitors.

Crash-Test Performance: 2020 Chevrolet Trax
Max Comfort: 2020 Chevrolet Trax
Inside the Trax, commuting is more luxurious than usual. This might be a small crossover – perfectly suited for downtown driving and parking – but it makes great use of passenger space. Check out upgraded upholstery options and the optional six-way power driver’s seat for even more in on-road comfort.
The Kia Soul also strives to make the most of its small crossover design, with generous head- and legroom in both rows of seating. The interior does feel a little plain – especially compared to the Trax cabin – but its modern ergonomics offer plenty of long-term comfort.
Tech Features: 2020 Chevrolet Trax
Tech-savvy drivers will gravitate toward the Trax, which comes standard with everything smartphone devotees could want. This includes Wi-Fi connectivity, a 7-inch infotainment touchscreen, and Apple CarPlay/Android Auto integration. The Trax also gives you safety features you won’t find on the Soul, such as Chevy’s OnStar emergency communications system.
When it comes to infotainment, the 2020 Kia Soul competes well. Though it doesn’t include a Wi-Fi hotspot, the base Soul sets you up with a 7-inch touchscreen and Apple CarPlay/Android Auto smartphone integration. Like the Trax, the Soul also comes standard with a rearview camera to maximize parking lot visibility.
Fuel Economy: 2020 Kia Soul
However fuel-efficient the 2020 Soul might be, the 2020 Trax comes out on top. Chevy’s extra-small crossover is a great option for tech-savvy drivers and commuters who crave comfort. Visit us at Coleman Chevrolet to experience the Trax for yourself.
