And like the rest of the Kia range, all new Soul models also come with our pioneering 7-year warranty.

steering wheel. Other unique features on this range topping model also include

As the most important features of any car, the new Soul is well equipped with a host of active and
passive safety technologies to provide the best protection in all driving
ESC is an active safety feature that provides optimised
braking and engine torque control by monitoring individual wheel speed,
steering angle and skidding.
VSM controls brake force, engine torque and steering torque
to provide improved vehicle stability when simultaneously braking and cornering
– especially on wet, slippery and rough road surfaces. As for those sometimes tough hill starts,
Hill-start Assist Control prevents you from rolling
backwards. In the event of the an accident, the Kia Soul has a 6-airbag system, including front, rear, side and curtain airbags, that offers protection for all occupants.
There is also a host of technology so you’ll never be caught unaware with innovative features that assist you on the road. The new Soul is full of ways to keep you informed - and optimise your safety. Available with the Kia Soul Sport, Lane Departure Warning System helps you when tiredness sets in, as this intelligent assistant helps you stay in lane. The instrument cluster alerts you if you begin to move off course unintentionally. High beam assist is also availablbe, which automatically dips the high beams when headlights of oncoming cars and rear lights of vehicles in front are detected. Another clever idea for added night-time safety and convenience.
