Kia Soul Car Reviews

The Kia Soul is a medium sized family car. Like many Kias, the Soul is fuel efficient and relatively cheap to run compared with other cars of its size. The Soul is spacious inside and can seat five adults comfortably, even though the length of the car is relatively short. This makes the car a simple one to drive and park, which in turn leads to a positive overall driving experience.

Kia Soul Overview

The Soul is sold with a six-speaker stereo system that includes a CD player, a USB port and Sirius Satellite Radio. Additional features available for upgrade include extra speakers, steering-wheel-mounted audio controls and Bluetooth for hands-free connectivity. The high level of standard equipment that the Soul is equipped with enhances the value for money that buyers receive.

The Kia Soul has a distinctively attractive exterior, and as a complement to the high level of space and comfort inside, there are flat-folding seats in the rear of the car that can be moved in order to increase storage space.


The Kia Soul was unveiled in 2008 at the Paris Motor Show.

The car is available with a range of petrol and diesel engines, and initially with a 5-speed manual transmission or a 4-speed automatic transmission. From 2012 the car has been available with 6-speed automatic and manual transmissions.

The 2012 model year update also sports a revised exterior and interior, with a better level of standard equipment. Features such as automatic climate control and heated leather seats have been implemented.

In 2010 the Kia Soul Flex was introduced, which is the first Korean flexible-fuel vehicle capable of running on any blend from E20-E25 gasoline (mandatory Brazilian blend) to E100 (neat ethanol). This model boasts much greater fuel consumption rates than the standard model.


The Kia Soul makes for a great family car in that it is spacious and comes with a very good level of standard equipment. Moreover, it looks stylish and boasts good fuel consumption rates.
