Kia Soul Car Review

July 08, 2013

The Kia Soul is a quirky vehicle that impresses both on and off the road!


This crossover vehicle delivers on all the levels that you would expect from an SUV, but it comes at a price tag and fuel economy of a normal car. 


When first observed, the Soul looks like a large car with a lot of character and should only be driven by someone young and funky. Once inspected, it is found that the performance, comfort and safety features actually make this vehicle perfect for young drivers and families alike.


The Soul has been created in four different models: 2.0 Auto, 2.0 Manual, 1.6 Auto & 1.6 Manual. Each Soul has a four cylinder engine which is very easily accessible underneath the bonnet. The maximum power of the Soul ranges from 95kW @ 6300rpm to 122kW @ 6500rpm. Standard features on all models include air conditioning, six airbags, cruise control iPod and USB connectivity, an audio auxiliary port, central locking with keyless entry and electric windows. 


The Soul also arrives with steering wheel controls, adding to its sporty character, while its 18 inch alloy wheels with two tone rims give the vehicle that extra bit of edge. Additional features such as power folding, heated mirrors and fog lights make the Soul a wonderful choice for long road trips. 


Book a test drive to take the Soul for a spin and find out why it was the winner of the best compact car in 2011.
