About Kia Soul

The 2017 Kia Soul finally receives the one thing it's lacked since the first hamster-driven 5-door hatchback appeared on our streets: horsepower. The top-level 2017 Soul Exclaim now boasts a 201-horsepower turbocharged 4-cylinder that delivers the verve the Kia Soul's funky styling and marketing long promised. Beyond the Turbo model's extra power, the entire lineup now offers Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, blind-spot detection, additional USB inputs and more. The all-electric Soul EV touts gas-free driving, but its range is only 93 miles, and availability is limited. The 2017 Soul is a compelling alternative not just to subcompact SUVs like the Fiat 500X or Mini Cooper Countryman, but also the Mazda3, Chevrolet Cruze and Honda Civic hatchbacks, especially when you consider its long warranty and low starting price.

"This car will blow the impression of KIA as a cheap carmaker out of the water. Yes it is affordable, but it doesnt feel cheap at all. higher end materials and touch inside make all the difference. The car has little road noise and is packed with convenience features others in this price range are lacking."

"I am just turning 70 with some physical problems like sciatica and lower back pain. I am about 5'6"tall. I have been looking for a small hatchback for about a year and test drove about 8-9 cars that fit the bill. For ME the priorities were 1. Seat comfort 2. Ability to see over stearing wheel 3. Roominess for errands at home lumber stores, etc 4. Clearance off the ground---ie. some cars hit curb when parking 5. Fun to drive 6. Last but not least: price under $25k There are a number of cars that have better gas mileage and equal roominess, but only one other of them had seats with power assisted drivers seat and lumbar support because they cater to a younger crowd. Kia hit the mark with this car for my age group as well as younger with all the cool technology. It is easy to get in and out of, is peppy enough to pass if needed, has plenty of room, tight enough handling and VERY comfortable. Could have a little better gas milage, but not the make or break feature for me. The warranty is great as well. I love this car every time I get in it!"
