2017 Kia Soul Review

Unique styling exciting performance and precise handling. That’s the Kia Soul. It redefines “fun to drive.” In fact the Soul redefines categories. Is it a hatchback? Is it a compact SUV? Yes and Yes. And that’s not all. Choose from three models: Base Plus and Exclaim. Does the Soul’s form follow function or is it the other way around? Besides turning heads outside the Soul’s unique shape has plenty of room for heads inside. And legs; and shoulders; and hips. And with the 60/40-split rear seat cargo of all shapes and sizes. Going someplace? Don’t be afraid to ask for directions—voice-command navigation and SiriusXM Traffic are available to help you get where you’re going. Bring along four of your friends—they’ll love the available Harman Kardon audio system. With its pulsating multicolored front-door speaker lights you’ll swear you can actually see the sound. You and your friends won’t just be entertained while you travel you’ll travel confidently too knowing Kia’s driver-assist technologies and passive features are there to help. An impressive array of exterior colors interior trims and option packages give your Soul even more personality. The Kia Soul. Uniquely entertaining.
Your Kia Soul’s surprisingly spacious interior has plenty of room for five adults and their gear. Or fold down the 64/40-split rear seat and haul giant boxes. Or just fold down part of the rear seat and haul people and boxes. You get the picture. Then while you and your friends and your boxes are traveling listen to tunes get directions check your Soul’s vehicle diagnostics even call 9-1-1 if you need to with available UVO eServices. Then when you get there park your Kia Soul safely with the Rear-Camera Display.
No matter which Kia Soul model you choose you’ll experience the confidence of advanced safety technology. Standard active safety features include electronic stability control traction control and electronic brake-force distribution. Forward collision warning blind-spot detection rear cross-traffic alert and lane departure warning are just a few of the available active safety technologies. Passive safety features found on all Soul include side-impact door beams front and rear crumple zones and a complete set of safety restraint systems. With a Kia Soul you have the advantage.
Your Kia Soul delivers inspiring performance. Featuring a turbocharged 201-horsepower engine and a seven-speed Dual-Clutch Transmission the Soul Exclaim adds punch to every trip. Soul Plus provides its own impressive performance with a 161-horsepower 2.0-liter engine and Sportmatic transmission. Change your Soul’s performance on the fly with the available Drive Mode Select System. It adjusts the engine and transmission for optimal balance in Normal mode maximizes efficiency in Eco mode and lets you enjoy your Soul’s agile handling in Sport mode. The Kia Soul. It’s funky fun.
