2018 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. So load up 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. But what’ll you play on it? Available UVO eServices infotainment system brings Apple CarPlay and Android Auto to a seven-inch touchscreen so you can access your favorite playlists. Need directions? Voice-command navigation is available too—with an 8-inch touchscreen. An impressive array of exterior colors interior trims and option packages give your Soul even more personality. The Kia Soul. Uniquely entertaining.
Everybody stays connected in your Kia Soul. Available UVO eServices infotainment system brings Apple CarPlay and Android Auto to a seven-inch touchscreen. Navigation is available and comes with an eight-inch touchscreen. Download the free UVO eServices app and you can use your compatible smartphone to access your Soul’s features. Can’t remember where you parked? Use the UVO Parking Minder. Wondering if you need to make a service appointment? Use UVO Vehicle Diagnostics. The Kia Soul. Connectivity comes standard.
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 anti-lock brakes. 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.
