    Close enough in price, both 1.6L and both compact cars.

    Which one would you choose and why?

    SOUL. More "fun" to drive in.

    Elantra looks like an accent or even a civic. Looks already like a common car. How much more if you give it two years?

    SOUL has its novelty but also the SOUL has its practicality and comfort which the Elantra cannot equal. You can even carry very large cargo items if you fold down the rear seats... things you cannot do with a sedan like the Elantra.

    Overall the SOUL has more long term value than the Elantra. Plus it is fun to simply drive it.

    agree with you on the practicality of the soul, with the space and all. i just feel that the elantra will be "safer" choice igiven the two options. nothing wrong with being common.

    The "safer" choice would be to buy either a Vios or a Corolla instead of the Elantra. Just saying...

    Soul for me. When i took a closer look at it, its quite a handy car and its bigger than you think it would be.

    I'd get the Soul in manual guise please. Its an instant standout wherever it goes and you get to fit more stuff inside as compared to the Elantra. Though if you want something that looks the sophisticated and elegant sort, get the Elantra.

    definitely Soul. better features and ground clearance for different road conditions. good head room. reminds me of the Toyota BB.
