Lilly Rose says:

my best friend just bought this car, its so cute

Medmann48 says:

Today we bought a 2016 Kia Soul+ for $17,300 (Out the door). We got a two tone White & Red which is pretty sharp. You can get some good deals out there but you will & we had to work at it & be willing to work over the salesman until you get the deal you want. We got the 2.0 Liter engine, 6-speed automatic & rear-backup camera, Etc.

Toni Roberts says:

I just leased a 2016 Caribbean blue soul plus , I really like it but, wish there was a CD player and auto start. I have had 2 optima’s and wanted to change it up, the ride is smooth, great visibility.

Bright Soundz says:

what rims are those?

Jul But says:

Are the previous versions good or a waste of money ?

tiacooper23 says:

I’m renting this car. I like it.

ading adormeo says:

Pamela says:

how much are these cars usually? My 16th birthday is coming up and my dad wants to get me this car? It looks so amazing inside and outside! I love it

janet gray says:

I LOVE MY KIA!!!!!!!

Eliot's Vlog says:

How does she handle in the snow? I know you said snow tires. Is there a video of driving in the snow somewhere?

magnified101 says:

I wonder how they film.. and who is fikming

ACS402010 says:

I love everything about this car except the fact that it doesn’t have an AWD option.

Angel Rivera says:

Not 2015

Cecilia Albano Macatbag says:

very nice!!!!

MeanGino says:

bought a 2015 base model with the manual transmission a couple of months ago. I love it. I only wish it came with a turbo for the 1.6. that would be great!

SpikerdudeProduction says:

what about a mini cooper

J Searcy says:

I am surprised they did not offer the 1.6L turbo in the SX model. Would have been a great fit.


So I’ve got a 2015 Kia Soul…does anyone else have one? If so, I have a question…the fuel economy is 24 city/30 highway. Well my meter is saying I’m getting 37.2 average for this current tank of gas. I’ve consistently had higher fuel economy. Does anyone else experience the same, or is my meter not reading correctly? Thanks!

One Pissed American says:

I have the 2012 base model and love it.

Shawn Kay says:

Red dot ward winner approved by indians ?

2:48 The Yugo system?

Medmann48 says:

Today we went out & bought a 2016 Kia Soul+ in the Caribbean Blue color. Explore all the rebates, incentives & especially the financing rebate ($1500 rebate if you take the 1.9% financing instead of 0% financing & $500). My point is why get the base model when you can get the Plus for only about $1000 more. The deal we swung today is $16,600 price after rebates & incentives & $18,200 out the door after taxes & title. You don’t have to spend $20,000+ to get a Plus model with the 2.0 GDI engine if you have a decent salesman who will work with you to get the best deal.

I think this vehicle is a metaphor for Koreans in general. They sit upright. They have a great commanding view of things and there is a large, wide panaromic sunroof in the interior. They tool around town easily and efficiently and they enter and egress very easily. And they also get around good in the snow. ;-p

Rekn Cycles says:

Ok usually i worry about new cars and how they try to make them “look” sporty but ruin everything. They didn’t with this. They actually went from ~53 sqft of cargo to about ~61 with the seats folder, while only gain 1 inch in length and width. Reliable as all hell and decent styling with passable performance. Cudos to Kia for making such a nice well-rounded car.

swizzler68 says:

A great review thank you!
 They sell the Soul (no pun intended) over here in the UK in petrol and diesel format, the diesel is the biggest seller: a 134bhp 1.6 unit. I currently own a 2011 KIA Sorento, and a Soul would make a great addition for the wife to use. I really like the look of this car especially in white.

kimisdaman says:

There’s two inches more legroom in back than either of Kia’s bigger SUVs.

Luca Dawson says:

How do you dq? It looks interesting. juggle sassy .

ahmed badreldin says:

IT’S the most ugly car ever to win award like that

Marosi Zoltán says:

Kia Soul or Kia Seoul?

Royale with cheese says:

Way too small for taller drivers over 5″10. The seat is so close to the floor, for such a tall car. Even the Versa has more legroom for the driver.

Lisseth M says:

I must have this car.

Ben Chan says:

i will use the grey matter between my ears, i will buy this car

Royale with cheese says:

Why do they offer only grey/dark interior?

ChristianSolder111 says:

I got T-Boned in one of these a few days ago! The reinforced Structure kept the frame from crumpling (Was able to quickly exit Impact side because of that) no glass breakage on my side (Only blown out rear window) and the side airbag worked exactly how it should have; I had a nice pillow to keep my head from hitting the side window (which I needed). the car spun about 84 degrees and took the impact bout 1 foot behind me at 25-35 MPH, and the only injury I got was a nasty bruise. I would recommend this car to anyone.

incawarrior68 says:

I would need you to review the rear interior regarding the seats..fold down??

John K Lindgren says:

BTW. Do you really need a panoramic sunroof in Canada? Bangkok-Johnnie

501st fighter says:

I hate Kia so much!!!!!!

Cinthia 9 says:

The orange one:-)

John Bathe says:

I’ve had a Kia Carnival from new. It’s now 13 years young. Never a problem. (I live in Spain) Time to down size and I fancy this little beauty. I love Kia.

shredfactor7 says:

Question, the height of the vehicle when getting in is it about the same height as an SUV? got bad knees so just curious

a b says:

kia BOX

PalmBeachNative20 says:
