The Kia Soul was the best buy, for the money, for us. In fact, we just bought a second one. Build quality, standard options, all you get at base price—made buying the Soul a no-brainer for us.

I love my car. When I get in it, I love it. When I get out of it, I love it. My friends say I drive a mouse car... Well, this mouse car and I are all over the metroplex (it's great on gas)! It suites my personality and is actually really easy to handle as I wanted an suv but not some monster car to

The Soul is a good economy car at an economy price. The 2017 base started at 13k when I was shopping. The soul is a little underpowered but still makes great power for everyday driving (it isn't meant to be a racecar!). The catch is that with the 1.6 litre engine you are averaging 30+ mpg in a wagon
