5 Pet-Friendly Cars That Will Be Your Budget's Best Friend
No. 1 least-expensive pet-friendly car: Kia Soul
Base price: $14,400
The hip Kia Soul is a tail-wagging choice if you're young or young at heart and don't have a lot of money to spend on transporting yourself or your pet.
The four-door compact wagon gets a thumbs-up primarily because standard side-curtain airbags will protect you and your animal in a crash.Clarke says the model also has tinted rear glass that will help keep your animal cool on sunny days. Additionally, fold-flat rear seats provide 53 cubic feet of cargo space -- not the best in class, but pretty good considering the Soul's size. Beyond pet-friendliness, the vehicle boasts youth-oriented styling, quality interior finishes, lots of standard features and Kia's famous 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty. "The Soul offers good value for the money," Clarke says.
