7 roomy cars for Black Friday shopping

Kia Soul+
Kia Soul+
  • Price: $18,200
  • Maximum cargo space: 61.3 cubic feet
  • Gas mileage:
    • City - 23 mpg
    • Highway - 31 mpg
    • Combined - 26 mpg

The "plus" symbol following "Soul" is actually the mid-range model option. It doesn't come loaded with bells and whistles, but it's nicely equipped with hill-start assist control, a 60/40 split/folding rear seat, a six-speaker audio system and Kia's FlexSteer driver-selectable steering assist.

Kia completely redesigned Soul for 2014, retaining its spunky, fun-to-drive qualities while updating its cabin and enhancing its handling. Bankrate chose it for this list because of its peppy 164-horsepower, 2-liter, four-cylinder engine and urban-friendly dimensions. It also offers scads of cargo space for that determined Black Friday shopper: 24.2 cubic feet behind the second-row seat and 61.3 cubic feet with the rear seat down.

A six-speed, driver-shiftable automatic transmission hustles the engine's ponies to the front wheels.
