The boxy-looking Kia Soul is a tall, front-wheel-drive wagon.
Packing a lot of room into its modest footprint, the KIa affords easy access and a spacious rear seat.
Handling is secure, aided by standard electronic stability control.
The 2.0-liter engine brings average acceleration and 25 mpg overall, which isn't anything special.
Controls are simple but interior fit and finish is basic.
