This car ranges from great to outstanding in most categories that I was looking for in a car.
1. Interior room. This car can seat 5 adults (including driver) comfotably. 4 Is very comfortable. Lots of leg room in back seat, while maintaining plenty of storage space in the hatch.
2. Power. two DC outlets on driver's column, PLUS two in the hatch. Great for keeping those in the back seat separate from the driver area.
3. Media and Sound System. Integrates phone, USB stick, whatever. Sound system is pretty good, but the 2011 is not Bose.
4. Acceleration. It's actually got great acceleration, especially with the larger motor in the + version. Can easily accelerate into traffic in either neighborhood streets or highway.
Great spacious car with great visibility
2012 Kia SoulDavide - 90028, CA02/12/2015
I bought this car with my wife. We were looking for our first drive here in US and this one immediately catch our attention; nice styling, very spacious inside, outstanding turning radius and finally a car with a great visibility:
I can park so close to the curb (or other cars) without the rear camera (which my car is not equipped with).
We like the fact that it has both front and rear defrosts.
Manual gear, great for fuel consumption, it seems like driving an european car, we love it.
Disappointed in this car
2014 Kia SoulAnonymous - Portland, OR03/09/2015
Gas mileage is not that good for a small 4 cylinder vehicle. I average 25 mpg.
Car continuing to pull to the right or left and is made so that mechanics cannot do
a major adjustment so you have to keep bringing it back to have little adjustments made.
Windows very high up on the door. No space to keep things near the driver.
