If you want to make road trip with 4-adult, then you must opt a subcompact crossover Kia Soul as it has specious cabin space due to its boxy shape and larger boot space to fit your all cargo. It is offered with two engine options such as 147 HP four-cylinder and 201 HP turbocharged four-cylinder engine. But this drivetrain doesn’t deliver good fuel efficiency due to Soul’s boxy design and even all-wheel drivetrain is also missing. You have to opt a top-end variant for some basic driver assistance features.
