Competitively priced, this compact crossover is as suited to small families as it is to solo commuters. The Soul seats five passengers with up to 60 cubic feet of interior cargo space. You also have two different engine options:

  • The standard 130-hp 1.6L I-4 engine for an EPA-estimated 30 mpg on the highway near Smithton
  • The optional turbocharged engine for 201 hp on the open road.

If you’re looking for an eco-friendly ride with sleek style, then the Kia Niro is right for you. This hybrid crossover gets an EPA-estimated 50 mpg/combined and nearly 600 miles of range for driving around Trenton. The standard 1.6L engine is built with a Full Parallel Hybrid system, generating 139 combined hp and 195 combined lb-ft of torque in total.

The Niro offers 100.9 cubic feet of passenger space and 54.5 cubic feet of cargo space with seats down.

Choose the standard 2.4L I-4 engine for 181 hp and 181 lb-ft of torque, or upgrade to the turbocharged 2.0L I-4 engine that delivers 240 hp and 237 lb-ft of torque. This spacious SUV offers up to 60.1 cubic feet of cargo space.
