My Kia Experience

2013 Kia Soul Nicole - Queens, NY 04/02/2015

It is a nice car that gets you from point A to point B. NY streets are rough on cars so I wouldn't judge my driving experience with anyone not living in NY. But I still love the drive. I like the fact it is an SUV without the enormous size of other SUVs.

Hopefully newer models fixed the issues...

2010 Kia Soul Tina Roberts - Fairfield, CT 05/16/2015

Love: - The quirky body style - The sunroof (optional, obviously) - The lighted speakers that flash with the music - The seat style - The general look of it - The roomy cargo (once you put the seats down, otherwise, you have pretty much none.) Hate: - How LOUD it is on the highway.... wow. - The stupid commercials that everyone who sees the car feels SO ORIGINAL when they bring it up. - She's not very peppy in terms of pickup. But once she gets up to speed she does fine.

Great spacious car with great visibility

2012 Kia Soul Davide - 90028, CA 02/12/2015

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.

Kia Soul Overview

The Kia Soul is a part of Kia's family of compact cars. Its bright personality led it to becoming one Kia's most popular vehicles. It has a boxy shape that actually makes it look a bit like a smaller crossover SUV.

Kia Soul History

The Kia Soul is a fairly young hatchback. When it was introduced, not too many angular, boxy cars were seeing success. Over the years, this compact car capitalized on its unique look and became an icon.

  • The first-generation Kia Soul was introduced in the 2008 model year.
  • It was launched with a marketing campaign that featured dancing hamsters.
  • The Soul received a refresh in 2012 before the end of the first-generation of Kia Soul.
  • The second generation was introduced in 2014 with a new redesign.

How It Drives

The Kia Soul feels composed and easy to drive around tight city corners, but could be more engaging and responsive to drive. The ride can be a little rough, so avoid bumpy roads to keep the drive enjoyable. The interior is at least fairly comfortable and most adults will find that there's plenty of space in the car.

Used Kia Soul Value

There aren't too many boxy compact cars on the market; the Volkswagen Golf and Nissan Juke come to mind. The Kia Soul is more refreshing than anything else - it may be overlooked for its appearance and price tag, but the Soul has a good interior and exterior value. It gets the fundamentals right. The Kia Soul has done a good job of targeting drivers with its stronger style and brand. It hasn't really changed much in terms of looks and yet it still manages to stay attractive.

It's fairly fuel efficient, with a little room for growth. It simply falls short in a lot of areas that matter when comparing strict numbers between cars. It's a good starter car that meets basic A-to-B driving needs.

Design & Performance

The iconic Kia Soul is a compact hatchback with a tall, squared body style. A redesigned version of the Kia Soul emerged in 2014, upgrading performance and interior comfort across trim levels. It looks a bit sharper and dynamic after a redesign. It has three trim levels:

  • Kia Soul
  • Kia Soul + (Plus)
  • Kia Soul ! (Exclaim)

Each has different engine options, feature packages, and transmission types. The top-of-the-line Kia Soul Exclaim has the best features offered and the strongest engine option: a turbocharged four-cylinder. It adds a bit of much-needed excitement to the lineup. Now, it has an engine option that can match its spunky personality. The car can have either front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive, depending on preference.

Powertrain & Engine

The second-generation Kia Soul is equipped with a 1.6L four-cylinder engine standard on all base models. Manual transmission and automatic transmission are both available, depending on the driving preference. Soul Plus and Soul Exclaim trim levels have a 2.0L four-cylinder engine, which offers a bit more horsepower. The 2.0L can only be paired with a six-speed automatic transmission.

Starting with the 2017 model, the Kia Soul Exclaim will also have access to a 1.6L turbocharged four-cylinder engine paired exclusively with a seven-speed automatic transmission. It's a meaningful edition that helps the Kia Soul compete with other compact cars outside of its segment.

Body Style & Interior Comfort

The Kia Soul has an iconic style. It seats four adults comfortably. Though it has enough room for three people in the back seat, it may be a bit cozy. Still, the space in the compact car is used efficiently and the storage compartments are in useful spots. Inside, the car is simple and subdued.

  • The second row can be folded over to allow for more cargo space.
  • There is a small cargo bin below the cargo floor.
  • The seats are comfortable and easy to adjust.
  • It's built with full power accessories and Bluetooth connectivity standard on most models.
  • Optional upgrades include a ventilated front seat, heated steering wheel, and adjustable mood lighting.
