Beginning with a peek at the interior and exterior features that each of these crossovers offers, you’ll find that the Soul EV overshadows the LEAF in almost every category. Thanks to the dual-zone temperature control that comes standard in the Soul EV, you and your passengers will remain comfortable in your own bubbles of comfort. The Nissan LEAF neglects this feature, and also fails to offer dual-illuminated vanity mirrors, which the Soul EV boasts as a standard amenity. Taking a look at the exterior will surprise you, as the Soul EV integrates lightweight alloy wheels that overcome the heavy steel wheels implemented on the LEAF, providing you with quick maneuvering that you just can’t achieve with the Nissan LEAF

Speaking of performance, the Soul EV still upstages the LEAF with its electric capabilities. Though the LEAF does gain a slightly better fuel rating of 124/101 MPG city/hwy1 over the Soul EV’s 120/92 MPG city/hwy2, there are a few other categories in which the Kia brand triumphs. The Soul pushes out 109 horsepower, while the LEAF lags behind with only 107 horsepower. You’ll find that the major differences lie in the force that each vehicle puts out. The Soul EV reels in 210 lb.-ft. of torque over the LEAF's upsetting 187 lb.-ft. of torque that just can’t compete.

So far in the competition between the 2016 Kia Soul EV vs 2016 Nissan LEAF in Kaneohe, HI, the Soul EV comes out strong, leading in almost every category it has been put up against. Space is also an area where the Soul EV conquers, such as its 97.1 cubic ft. of passenger volume over the LEAF's mere 92.4 cubic ft. of space.

The LEAF only grants you 54.3 inches of front shoulder room and a 52.5-inch back-row shoulder space. Measuring out at 70.9 inches wide and 63 inches tall, the Soul EV still bests the LEAF's mere 69.7-inch wide and 61-inch tall body. Because of all of this extra room, the Soul EV boasts a maximum of 49.5 cubic ft. of cargo room3, while the LEAF falls dreadfully behind with only 30 cubic ft. of space4 as its maximum capacity.
