Kia with a lot of ‘Soul’
December 04, 2014
The 2014 Kia Soul has it all. It’s economical for its class, while still sporting a stylish streak that any driver can come to appreciate. Here is why.
Your options in the driver’s seat of this five-door showstopper are seemingly endless. Let’s just say that the number six will become your best friend. Six-speed Manual or Automatic Transmission in either the 1.6 or 2.0 litre engine range, six-speaker surround sound stereo, and six airbags. Now that’s impressive. Enjoy the panoramic sunroof as you welcome the South African sunshine this summer, while relishing in the convenience of steering wheel-mounted audio controls – infotainment at your fingertips.
Even though it may seem a bit ‘boxy’ on the outside with its hatchback rear, feeling ‘boxed in’ should be the last of your concerns whether you’re in the front or back seat. It has a gigantic 222 – 700 litre cargo area capacity that can easily carry four grown men with their luggage. If you’re after a car that looks as good on the inside as it does on the outside, then look no further. The Soul sports a variety of eye-catching metallic colours that will captivate. Personally, we found its Green Latte offering absolutely scintillating (yes, that’s what they call it, and you’ll love it too)!
Being soulful in your new set of wheels doesn’t need to come at an exorbitant price. Expect retail to begin from only R221 995*.

This unique crossover car has received accolades left, right and centre across many categories in 2014. They include the prestigious 2014 Kelley Blue Book Brand Image for best overall brand, where the Soul was one of three other Kia cars which scored high points in affordability and fuel efficiency. It was also named Active Lifestyle Vehicle of the Year in the urban segment, showing that it has the ability to meet the hectic demands of both family and single life. And for real peace of mind on the road, it boasts a NHTSA Overall 5-Star Crash Safety rating. Sounds like you’ve got yourself a well-rounded winner.
The Soul has received high praise from experts who know what’s ticking in the automotive industry, from Car and Driver and Automobile Magazine to AutoWeek who called it “cool, connected, and inexpensive”. Has a nice ring to it, don’t you think?
Don’t be startled when people can’t help but say, “Oh my Soul!” to the new Kia Soul. It has that sort of effect on all who come to know the calibre of this car – both inside and out. Go and book a test drive at your nearest Kia dealership today to see for yourself.
