Correction... there are at least 3 kinds of people (in the united states at least). You have the people from Iowa and that area of the states who say "Pop." And then most everywhere else people call it "soda"... EXCEPT IN THE SOUTH. Where it is called "Coke" and where people ask you what kind of coke you want when the options are Dr. Pepper, Sprite, or Orange Crush. Coke is the southern version of "soda," and it doesn't mean coca cola.

Neither. These are both Americanisms.
I'd be more likely to just refer to something as a soft drink, a fizzy drink, or just directly name the drink, such as Coke or Pepsi.
