Buying a KIA Soul New vs Used

If you purchase a used KIA Soul that is 2 years old, then you could save $6,232 compared to buying new, and still have a relatively new model with plenty of useful life remaining. If you plan to keep this vehicle for 3 years then your total cost of depreciation would be $2,161. Try other age and ownership length combinations, or different vehicles to see if you can find depreciation sweetspots where this cost is the lowest. Hint: Try vehicles between 2 and 4 years old, as brand new vehicles depreciate quickly. Also, if this is a recently released model and buying a few years old isn't possible, consider another vehicle, or perhaps wait until more used Soul models become available.

What About KIA Soul Insurance Costs?

The average cost to insure a KIA Soul is about $1,634 per year. This adds up to around $8,170 after 5 years of vehicle ownership. Unlike depreciation, this expense can often be lowered by shopping around for lower insurance premiums. Comparing quotes will ensure that you are not overpaying if you already own a KIA Soul.
