The Kia Soul combines the upmarket looks and elevated driving position of a car in the compact SUV class, with the compact dimensions and value for money of a supermini. Its ample interior space and plentiful equipment makes it a shrewd purchase if you're looking for a combination of space, comfort and safety. A vast array of stylistic options – paint schemes, interior trims and accessories of all kinds – make the Soul an intensely quirky, customisable vehicle.
At 1,610mm (1,660mm with the optional roof rails), the height of the vehicle allows for excellent visibility as well as contributing to its authoritative demeanour.
The tall body of the Soul does not decrease the stability of its platform, however, due to the expertly engineered front-wheel drive. A supple ride and minimal body roll result in a smooth and assured journey on all road surfaces.
In addition to the superior view afforded by the Kia Soul’s height, a plethora of active safety features make it one of the best-protected cars on the market and help ensure that the six airbags cocooning occupants from harm will not be necessary. Naturally, it also offers generous headroom to five large adults, as well as standard comfort and driver convenience features including air conditioning, remote central locking, and an MP3-compatible CD player and audio system.
