The Kia Soul Is the Best Subcompact SUV – 2017 10Best Trucks and SUVs

Marketing is a powerful tool. It can transform a Marlboro cigarette into a symbol of masculinity, an Apple computer into a futuristic fashion accessory, or, more recently, a small hatchback into a rugged, adventurous crossover. Or at least that’s how it’s perceived by the coldly rational confines of our head. But these sorts of perceptions—whether attached firmly to reality or not—are undeniably influential in terms of how people buy cars, and the crossover surge of the past few years is proof positive of this psychological phenomenon.

Marketing played a role in the initial success of the Kia Soul. too, even though the first-generation Soul wasn’t necessarily portrayed as a crossover. When it first arrived in 2009, it instead seemed late to the party started by boxy hatchbacks such as the Honda Element, the Scion xB, and the Nissan Cube. And yet, an ad campaign featuring the now-recognizable human-sized hamsters went viral and quickly helped put the practical and affordable Soul on the map. The strong-selling Soul now has outlasted that box-car trend, and its second generation arrived for 2014, just ahead of the wave of subcompact crossovers that broke in 2015.

The current Soul has maintained the funky charm of the first-generation model with design—inside and out—that manages to be both fresh and genuinely attractive, attributes that are often at odds. Kia also made some concessions to the crossover aesthetic by adding SUV-like touches such as extra body cladding and faux skid plates on some trim levels, and the automaker indeed now refers to the Soul as a crossover in its own marketing. But compared with the other shrunken SUVs in its class, the mature Soul seems more focused on substance and less desperate to conform to the sorts of superficial tropes thought up by focus groups and marketers.

We suspect that, to most people, a crossover’s true appeal is more deeply rooted in elements such as a raised seating position and increased interior space versus a car than in mostly pointless off-road ambitions. So while the Soul lacks an all-wheel-drive option, the goodness of its overall package more than makes up for that omission. Its cabin is richly trimmed and spacious—for example, its headroom and rear-seat legroom shame most of the competition—and it affords more cargo space than any competitor. As with many Kias, the Soul’s value equation is strong, with a base model starting below $17,000 and the well-equipped Exclaim (denoted as “!”) model starting under $24,000. Equivalent versions of competitors such as the Mazda CX-3 and the Jeep Renegade cost thousands more, and that’s without the added cost and weight of their optional all-wheel-drive systems.

The addition of a 1.6-liter turbocharged engine to the Soul’s top trim level for 2017 also has elevated the Kia’s fun factor. Its 201 horsepower delivers class-leading performance, and a sophisticated dual-clutch automatic and balanced suspension tuning make for a satisfying and energetic driving experience. The naturally aspirated 1.6-liter and 2.0-liter engines are not quite as spunky as the turbo, but they nonetheless deliver high levels of refinement and competitive acceleration numbers.

So while marketing is surely a factor in the Soul’s sales success, it’s the Kia’s purity of mission that impresses us most. Rather than settling for the mere image of capability and adventurous spirit, the Soul takes the small-crossover ideal a step further and backs up its outward appeal with a practical and enjoyable package that hits its target dead-on.

Lexus RX 450h

ack into their plush seats, yet it also flies the green flag at full mast thanks to impressive fuel mileage.

Like other Toyota/Lexus dual-mode hybrid products, the 450h can run on battery power alone during light acceleration, and the V6 gas engine shuts off at low speeds when not required. This results in truly excellent fuel economy for a midsize luxury SUV, and when added to the rest of the RX’s appealing attributes, there is certainly a lot to like. However, the RX hybrid also carries a premium price that will be hard to recoup with fuel savings alone, so count this as more of a sound eco choice rather than a financial one.

Current Lexus RX 450h
The Lexus RX 450h’s 3.5-liter gas V6 engine and battery-pack-driven electric motors/generators yield an impressive total output of 295 hp. All that thrust runs through a specialized continuously variable transmission (CVT), and despite its extra pounds, the hybrid RX is still plenty quick. Fuel economy estimates stand at 30 mpg combined with standard front-wheel drive, or 29 mpg combined with optional all-wheel drive.

Standard luxury features include 18-inch alloy wheels, a power liftgate, keyless ignition/entry, a power tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, dual-zone automatic climate control, a Siri-based control system for iPhone users and a nine-speaker sound system with an iPod/USB interface. A Sport driving mode is also standard, which changes steering effort, throttle response and transmission shifts for a livelier drive. Options (many grouped in packages) include a blind-spot warning system, leather upholstery, heated and cooled front seats, a navigation system, a rear DVD entertainment system and a rearview camera.

The cabin boasts real wood accents as well as a sliding and reclining split rear seat to optimize passenger comfort. With the second row in use, cargo capacity is 40 cubic feet — double that with the seat folded down. No third-row seat is available.

In reviews, we’ve found the Lexus RX 450h to be everything you’d expect from a Lexus. It’s quiet and comfortable but rather uninspiring to drive. The powertrain is enthusiastic, though, particularly given its low emissions and stellar fuel economy. Overall, the RX 450h’s relaxed demeanor and convenient wagon-style body makes it an excellent choice for those in search of a soothing, luxurious and environmentally friendly crossover SUV.

Used Lexus RX 450h Models
The RX 450h debuted for the 2010 model year. There have been only minimal changes since, the most notable ones being a different grille, the Sport drive mode and a few more standard features added for the 2013 model year. The Siri Eyes Free iPhone control became available the year after.

Workers Complete Final Shift at Mitsubishi’s Illinois Plant

Mitsubishi’ s production facility in Normal, Illinois officially closed on Monday, November 30, 2015, even as the search for a potential buyer remains open. The closure comes a little over four months after Mitsubishi made the announcement, saying back in July 2015 that it would sell its only assembly plant in the U.S. While it didn’t come as a shock to the 1,200 employees that were laid off work, Monday’s closure also put a lid on relationships built in the last 27 years.

The closure of the facility in Illinois is likely part of a bigger rebranding effort by the company as it tries to focus its full attention in other markets, specifically its home continent in Asia. As was previously mentioned, Mitsubishi already has a full-scale facility in Thailand. More recently, it purchased another factory, this time in the Philippines from Ford. The decision to end production in the U.S. also doesn’t mean that Mitsubishi is going to stop selling cars in the market. The Japanese automaker made that clear when it said that “both current and upcoming” Mitsubishi models will continue to be sold in the U.S. and North America. That’s good news for the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport, currently the company’s best-selling model in the U.S.

As for the laid off employees, numerous efforts are currently being undertaken to get these people back on their feet. Mitsubishi has already promised severance packages for the employees while the McLean County Chamber of Commerce in Normal is scheduled to hold a job fair in December 2015.

It was a bittersweet day for all parties involved in the closure of Mitsubishi’s production facility in Normal, Illinois. But, as the company deemed it necessary, it was a decision that had to be made. With the plant now closed, the search for a buyer continues, one that Mitsubishi hopes will continue to operate the assembly plant and maintain employment for the local community.

wiseGEEK: What are Crossover Cars?

Crossover cars are vehicles that have the bodies of an SUV or minivan but are set on a car chassis. The benefit of this structure is that they offer an increase in interior space, especially for passengers. Crossover vehicles also have a smoother ride and better handling than other cars with the bodies of SUVs or trucks that are set on a heavier chassis.

One of the main advantages of this type of vehicle may be an increase in operational efficiency, translated as better gas mileage. This is because the chassis is not as heavy and therefore the car, also known as a CUV or XUV, does not have to carry unneeded additional weight. This operational efficiency is highly sought after, especially by those looking to get the best gas mileage they can with higher fuel prices.

While crossover cars are becoming increasingly popular because of the comfort and efficiency, they do have some drawbacks. Trucks and SUVs are often meant to go on road and off road. That is one reason why they have a heavier chassis, which is more durable. Crossover vehicles are not meant to go off road, at least not in a way that could be very rough on the vehicle. For those who have such cars, the rule of thumb is to not take it anywhere they would not take a normal-sized vehicle.

This style of car started coming of age in the US in 2007, when more than dozen models hit the market in the wake of record-high gas prices. The light truck market, which includes both pickups and SUVs, had been on a substantial decline for several years. The crossover vehicle was seen as the answer to Detroit’s woes.

The combination of comfort and efficiency seems to be resonating well with drivers, at least in the United States. While SUVs were declining, sales of crossovers grew 16% in 2007. The trend could continue for years to come as more manufacturers start releasing models with more features and choices.

In fact, that diversification of the crossover vehicle has already started. Hybrid crossovers are already on the market, which makes the vehicles even more fuel efficient. Crossover hydrogen vehicles may make an appearance at local car dealerships as well. While the automobile market remains relatively volatile, its transition to a new type of vehicle may get a big boost with the acceptance of crossover cars.

wiseGEEK: What are Crossover Cars?

Crossover cars are vehicles that have the bodies of an SUV or minivan but are set on a car chassis. The benefit of this structure is that they offer an increase in interior space, especially for passengers. Crossover vehicles also have a smoother ride and better handling than other cars with the bodies of SUVs or trucks that are set on a heavier chassis.

One of the main advantages of this type of vehicle may be an increase in operational efficiency, translated as better gas mileage. This is because the chassis is not as heavy and therefore the car, also known as a CUV or XUV, does not have to carry unneeded additional weight. This operational efficiency is highly sought after, especially by those looking to get the best gas mileage they can with higher fuel prices.

While crossover cars are becoming increasingly popular because of the comfort and efficiency, they do have some drawbacks. Trucks and SUVs are often meant to go on road and off road. That is one reason why they have a heavier chassis, which is more durable. Crossover vehicles are not meant to go off road, at least not in a way that could be very rough on the vehicle. For those who have such cars, the rule of thumb is to not take it anywhere they would not take a normal-sized vehicle.

This style of car started coming of age in the US in 2007, when more than dozen models hit the market in the wake of record-high gas prices. The light truck market, which includes both pickups and SUVs, had been on a substantial decline for several years. The crossover vehicle was seen as the answer to Detroit’s woes.

The combination of comfort and efficiency seems to be resonating well with drivers, at least in the United States. While SUVs were declining, sales of crossovers grew 16% in 2007. The trend could continue for years to come as more manufacturers start releasing models with more features and choices.

In fact, that diversification of the crossover vehicle has already started. Hybrid crossovers are already on the market, which makes the vehicles even more fuel efficient. Crossover hydrogen vehicles may make an appearance at local car dealerships as well. While the automobile market remains relatively volatile, its transition to a new type of vehicle may get a big boost with the acceptance of crossover cars.

Best crossovers 2015

Crossovers are increasingly popular with car buyers, but which are the best ones? Here are our picks

Crossovers are an interesting type of car – they offer plenty of practicality and their SUV-style looks are firmly in fashion at the moment, but thanks to more compact dimensions they are still easy to drive and have fairly low running costs.

Despite the 4×4 looks, most crossovers are front-wheel drive only, so they are much more suited to driving on the road than a traditional SUV. Modern petrol and diesel engines on the latest models help keep running costs low too. When you take all these factors into account, it’s no surprise that crossovers are an extremely popular choice with families.

Many of the bestselling models in this class, like the Nissan Qashqai. Skoda Yeti and Mazda CX-5. have some key points in common: plenty of interior space, a range of efficient engines and a strong record for reliability. The Skoda Yeti, in fact, is a Driver Power winner – it was voted the best car to own for three years in a row.

The success of crossover models like the Nissan Juke. Peugeot 2008 and MINI Countryman has seen a new type of crossover emerge, based on superminis. These smaller models take the formula on another step, with even lower running costs – although there is less space in these cars than the larger alternatives.

As with any type of car, you need to make sure you’re clear on what you need a crossover for before you buy one – certain models excel in different areas.

It’s likely a two-wheel-drive version will suit you just fine and we’d probably avoid a crossover altogether if you’re intending to do any serious off-roading and go for a proper 4×4 instead. Plus, the top-spec 4WD crossover models tend to be expensive to buy and suffer from poorer fuel economy than the front-wheel drive variants.

You might think that a diesel engine is your only voice for top fuel economy figures, but don’t be so hasty – take a look at the petrol engines on offer as well. Modern petrol engines are more efficient than ever, and will cost less to buy than a diesel. So, if you’re unlikely to cover a high mileage, it would be worth considering a petrol. Whatever you choose, though, the style and practical virtues of a crossover are bound to ensure this segment continues to boom.

Volvo

  • When looking at a crossover vehicle, it might be hard to tell exactly what makes it special. Basically, crossovers evolved to bridge the gap between cars and sport utility vehicles, and they exploded in popularity when people finally admitted they weren t using their SUVs to their potential. A crossover is essentially a car-based vehicle that combines some characteristics of sport utility vehicles (like aesthetics and cargo space) with features of passenger vehicles (like station wagon or minivan style seating configurations). Since crossovers have enjoyed such a boom in popularity in recent years, automakers have flooded the market with new and upgraded crossover models. The crossover category has drawn in plenty of converts and new customers: young, active families who aren t thrilled about the perceived stodginess of wagons and vans; former sport utility vehicle drivers who were tired of paying for gas for power they didn t need; and people who might have been drawn to the aesthetics of a sport utility vehicle, but couldn t afford it or didn t need it. Crossovers, in short, meet the needs of a lot of different demographics with their flexibility, versatility, and athletic good looks.

    Workers Complete Final Shift at Mitsubishi’s Illinois Plant

    Mitsubishi’ s production facility in Normal, Illinois officially closed on Monday, November 30, 2015, even as the search for a potential buyer remains open. The closure comes a little over four months after Mitsubishi made the announcement, saying back in July 2015 that it would sell its only assembly plant in the U.S. While it didn’t come as a shock to the 1,200 employees that were laid off work, Monday’s closure also put a lid on relationships built in the last 27 years.

    The closure of the facility in Illinois is likely part of a bigger rebranding effort by the company as it tries to focus its full attention in other markets, specifically its home continent in Asia. As was previously mentioned, Mitsubishi already has a full-scale facility in Thailand. More recently, it purchased another factory, this time in the Philippines from Ford. The decision to end production in the U.S. also doesn’t mean that Mitsubishi is going to stop selling cars in the market. The Japanese automaker made that clear when it said that “both current and upcoming” Mitsubishi models will continue to be sold in the U.S. and North America. That’s good news for the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport, currently the company’s best-selling model in the U.S.

    As for the laid off employees, numerous efforts are currently being undertaken to get these people back on their feet. Mitsubishi has already promised severance packages for the employees while the McLean County Chamber of Commerce in Normal is scheduled to hold a job fair in December 2015.

    It was a bittersweet day for all parties involved in the closure of Mitsubishi’s production facility in Normal, Illinois. But, as the company deemed it necessary, it was a decision that had to be made. With the plant now closed, the search for a buyer continues, one that Mitsubishi hopes will continue to operate the assembly plant and maintain employment for the local community.

    Continue after the jump to read the full story.
