For superior ride and handling, the Toyota Prius Prime has fully independent front and rear suspensions. An independent suspension allows the wheels to follow the road at the best angle for gripping the pavement, without compromising ride comfort. The Kia Soul EV has a rear torsion beam axle, with a semi-independent rear suspension.

The Prius Prime has standard front and rear stabilizer bars, which help keep the Prius Prime flat and controlled during cornering. The Soul EV’s suspension doesn’t offer a rear stabilizer bar.

For a smoother ride and more stable handling, the Prius Prime’s wheelbase is 5.1 inches longer than on the Soul EV (106.3 inches vs. 101.2 inches).

The Prius Prime LE handles at .79 G’s, while the Soul EV + pulls only .76 G’s of cornering force in a Motor Trend skidpad test.

The Prius Prime Limited has a standard heads-up display that projects speed and navigation instruction readouts in front of the driver’s line of sight, allowing drivers to view information without diverting their eyes from the road. The Soul EV doesn’t offer a heads-up display.

The Prius Prime’s front and rear power windows all open or close fully with one touch of the switches, making it more convenient at drive-up windows and toll booths, or when talking with someone outside the car.

The Prius Prime Limited’s standard wipers adjust their speed and turn on and off automatically according to the amount of rainfall on the windshield. The Soul EV’s manually variable intermittent wipers have to be constantly adjusted.

While driving with high beams on, sensitive light sensors standard on the Prius Prime detect other vehicles which could be blinded and automatically switch to low beams. The Soul EV doesn’t offer automatic dimming high beams.

This allows the driver to use cruise control more safely without constantly having to disengage it when approaching slower traffic. The Soul EV doesn’t offer an adaptive cruise control.

The Prius Prime Limited’s Intelligent Parking Assist can parallel park or back into a parking spot by itself, with the driver only controlling speed with the brake pedal. The Soul EV doesn’t offer an automated parking system.
