Kia Soul Overview
The Soul brings more to the table than quirky styling. There's abundant interior space, with the chair-like seats and big windows providing an excellent view out. Though fundamentally a budget hatchback, the Soul looks and feels like a low-riding SUV. The driving experience isn't special: the ride is stiff, and handling is sound, but unexceptional. Power delivery from the 2.0-liter four-cylinder feels just adequate, and its 26 mpg overall is not outstanding. An impressive options list includes heated seats, touch-screen navigation, and a backup camera. An electric version is available in California. First year reliability of the redesign has been above average.
