It no longer has the opinion-dividing looks which it had before and it's now an excellent small MPV which offers space and equipment and makes a great choice for families. The Soul is also a practical vehicle and nice car to drive.
Under the bonnet is the choice of a 1.6 litre diesel or petrol engine with the diesel unit returning 46mpg with emissions of 132g/km. The 1.6 litre petrol unit will return 33 mpg. The engines are coupled to a six speed manual gearbox and there's the option of a six speed automatic transmission too. Others also have the choice of the Kia Soul EV which is a fully electric version with a 130 miles range for the price of charging.
The Soul is an easy car to drive and it's packed with clever ideas and equipment and makes for an enjoyable and practical small MPV for families. There's good visibility from the high driving position and owners can customise their vehicle to suit their personal references.
The car is still distinctive looking with standard equipment including electric windows, air conditioning, hill start assist and a braking assist system which brings confidence. Other models come with alloy wheels, heated leather seats and parking sensors and standard safety equipment includes electronic stability control, air bags and anti-whiplash head restraints. There's plenty of space on board too; three adults can be seated comfortably in the rear seats and the boot is 340litres in size and when the rear seats are folded flat this will expand to 818litres. However, one of the best reasons for opting for the Soul is that Kia is renowned for making reliable cars and every vehicle comes with the firm's seven-year or 100,000 mile warranty which brings additional peace of mind.
