2012 Kia Soul Review

Overview
Whatever happened to being unique? To having some personality? It’s the 2012 Kia Soul. It looks different because it is different. Think of the Soul as your personal canvas. It’s ready for all kinds of custom touches. Open the hatch and see some serious space. How can it be bigger inside that it is outside? Now flip down the split folding rear seats for all kinds of cargo-carrying variations. A Soul with all the standard equipment you’re looking for. The Soul plus comes with a MP3 Audio system air conditioning power windows and locks and four wheel disc brakes and a whole lot more. The Soul features a two liter 4 cylinder engine that gets thirty miles per gallon on the highway. Soul’s active safety systems are engineered to help you avoid accidents and its passive systems are designed to help minimize injuries when they are unavoidable. The result? A whole lot of peace mind! The 2012 Kia Soul. A new way to Roll.
