If you decide to become an owner of the Kia Soul, you’ll be able to enjoy driving a vehicle of true distinction. Even auto market experts have trouble classifying the Kia Soul. The Kia Soul’s distinct design makes it like nothing else out on the road. Its interesting design produces a vehicle that’s somehow spacious without being bulky. In the Soul, Kia designers have pulled off the impressive feat of creating a car design that is undeniably boxy yet is still somehow startlingly stylish.
The large body of the Kia Soul means that the vehicle’s center of gravity is high. Although a vehicle with such a body type doesn’t typically offer phenomenal handling, the Kia Soul offers better control and response than one would initially expect. The Kia Soul lets the driver feel secure and in control even around fast corners, and the vehicle’s body is able to minimize discomfort or disturbance caused by an uneven driving surface.
Buyers of the Kia Soul can choose between two possible engine options: the 1.6 liter petrol engine and the 1.6 liter diesel engine. Although the diesel version offers improved fuel economy, the 1.6 liter petrol gets the job done. Other options on the Soul include graphics packs and 18 inch alloys for the vehicle’s wheels. The dashboard and seat trims of the inside of the Soul can be customized; however, the interior design that comes standard is by itself attractively designed.
One of the major attractions of the Kia Soul is the spaciousness offered on the interior. The interior of this vehicle offers an impressive amount of headroom and legroom, and even the tallest passengers should feel comfortable. A highly valued strength of the Soul is the fact that it offers a large body with plenty of room while still achieving an impressive gas mileage of 57 MPG.
As spaciousness is one of the major strong points of the vehicle, those considering the Soul should think about how many people they will need to transport in their vehicle on a regular basis. The vehicle can very comfortably fit four adults, and three children can comfortably fit in the vehicle’s back seats. Those who regularly need to transport groups of people- and wish to transport them in the utmost comfort- will want to strongly consider purchasing the Soul.
Of course, the roominess of the vehicle’s interior is not the only strength of the Kia Soul. This vehicle model has received accolades for its safety features, and it was distinguished by earning a 5-star safety rating from NHTSA and by being declared a top safety pick by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.
Some of the key safety features of the vehicle include dual front, side, and curtain airbags and both front and rear crumple zones. Drivers maintain maximum control of the vehicle thanks to the four-wheel antilock braking system and an electronic stability control system. The Kia Soul can be considered not only a safe car but also a decent choice financially. The ALG gave the Kia Soul its Residual Value Award to recognize the fact that the Soul will be less susceptible to losing value over time than other vehicle models.
