My 2012 base model Kia Soul has very few added "bells and whistles," but I couldn't be happier with it. It handles responsively, it's comfortable, the gas mileage is great, there's plenty of room in back for transporting a bike or other cargo, and I like the slightly higher profile for improved road & traffic visibility. I'd buy another one in a heartbeat.
Spacious and fun to drive!
2012 Kia SoulColleen - Harrisonburg, VA03/08/2015
Bought this car a little over a month ago after reading many reviews about them and fell in love with the look and feel of driving this car. Many may say that it is underpowered, but I find it quite zippy. Fuel economy is actually way better than expected considering my previous car got 40 mpg. Perfect inbetween car that isn't your typical boring sedan and not as high off the ground as most crossovers or SUV's. All in all, my husband and I LOVE IT!
2013 Kia SoulJennifer Hicks - San Antonio, TX06/24/2016
This car has been wonderful so far. It is easy to drive and handles well. I can park it very easily in most spots. The fuel economy has been awesome! My last car was a minivan which used a lot of gas. This car takes about $25 to fill up and I can run on it for about a week or so. Despite its small size it feels very roomy inside both front and back, and I have plenty of space for a trip to the store in the cargo area. The Bluetooth and satellite radio round out my bare bones car pretty well. This car is perfect for me as I just really move around town, but it would not be bad on the occasional road trip.
