The Kia Soul sports an arrestingly angular design that demands attention and ensures that it stands out from the rest. It also possesses a roomy interior and comes with fine levels of standard equipment.
The vehicle’s engagingly chunky looks are offset by a discreet ‘tiger nose’ front grille, which is flanked by streamlined headlights. Other notable features include body-coloured door mirrors and height-adjustable headlights, while Connect trim levels and above come with alloy wheels, beginning at 17 inches in size.
Inside the Soul’s five-seat cabin, air conditioning, four power-operated windows and central locking are among a range of features included as standard. A six-speaker sound system comes with all models too, featuring an MP3-compatible CD player, an AM/FM radio and a digital tuner. A 354-litre boot capacity can be increased to 994 litres, simply by folding down the vehicle’s rear seats.
Entry-level Start grades are installed with a 1.6-litre 130bhp petrol engine. Paired with a six-speed manual gearbox, this returns up to 41.5mpg and a 153g/km CO2 emissions figure. EV iterations produce zero emissions – and a driving range of up to 132 miles upon a full battery charge. For optimal pace and power, look for models fitted with a 1.6-litre 201bhp petrol engine, which produces 265Nm of torque and achieves 0-60mph in approximately 7.7 seconds.
The Soul comes with numerous safety features as standard. These include Anti-lock Braking System, Electronic Stability Control, Hill-hold Assist, several airbags, seatbelt pre-tensioners and force-limiters and seatbelt reminders.
