5 reasons to buy the 2015 Kia Soul

1. Spacious cabin

The 2015 Kia Soul boasts a spacious cabin with plenty of room for up to five passengers to travel comfortably. In fact, the boxy design of the Soul allows for plenty of headroom and legroom, even for adults sitting in the rear row. Being in the driver's seat of the 2015 Soul is made even more comfortable with a standard height-adjustable driver's seat, while fold-down front and rear armrests are included on all trims.

2. Surprising storage space

Despite ample space throughout the cabin, the 2015 Kia Soul doesn't lack storage space. Behind the rear row of seats, you'll find 19 cu-ft of dedicated cargo space. If you need more room, the second row folds down nearly flat to extend the cargo area to a full 61 cu-ft.

3. Ample standard equipment

With three trim configurations available, there's sure to be a 2015 Soul that's right for you. Standard equipment on the base trim is generous and includes Bluetooth® connectivity, a six-speaker sound system, full power accessories, selectable drive modes, and a six-speaker sound system.

4. Two engine configurations

The 2015 Soul is offered with two capable engine configurations. The standard engine on the base trim is a 1.6L four-cylinder at 130 hp, which is offered with both manual and automatic transmission pairings. Meanwhile, the other two trims on the 2015 Soul receive an even more powerful 2.0L four-cylinder at 164 hp. This engine is paired exclusively with a six-speed automatic transmission. Regardless of engine configuration, every 2015 Soul comes with front-wheel drive.

5. Respectable fuel economy

For a vehicle of its size, the 2015 Soul gets decent fuel economy. Its base trim with 1.6L four-cylinder engine, automatic transmission, and front-wheel drive gets an EPA-estimated 26 mpg combined for a total range of about 369 miles on a single tank of gas.
