2016 Kia Soul

2016 Kia Soul Review

Fun and funky, with versatility and a compact footprint, urban multipurpose vehicles have become immensely popular in recent years. At the front of the pack is the 2016 Kia Soul Review, a bright, fun, functional five door vehicle that provides great value. The Soul comes in three different trim levels: the LXEX, and SX.

Hip and High-Tech

With a bulldog nose, featuring an upright grille and front-facing Xenon headlights that provide bright, crisp lighting for the road ahead, the 2016 Kia Soul has a face that stands out in the crowd. The unique and creative styling continues throughout, with flared bodywork over the wheels and boxy, upright proportions that are softened by molded sheet metal. In the rear, high taillights make the vertical rear hatch seem even taller. The high hatch is a functional feature too – it allows you to make the most of the available cargo space. For personalizing the Soul, there are plenty of options. Two-tone roof and trim is available for contrast, or choose from any of the fun, bright colours like Alien or Solar Yellow. Various wheel styles and sizes are also available for even more pop. If you need function, an available roof rack allows you to tie cargo onto the Soul that might not fit inside the cargo hold.

Inside the 2016 Kia Soul, the fun and funky personality continues, from the available color-pulsating speakers to the optional panoramic sunroof. There is seating for up to five passengers, with the tall body and low floor providing over 1,000 millimeters of head room in all seating positions. The Soul features cloth upholstery with leather available, and the interior is clad in soft-touch plastics and piano black or satin metal trim. Copious passenger space doesn’t cut into cargo capacity, with the Soul making the most of its footprint by providing ample cargo space with the rear seats up and even more room with the seats folded down. At the center of the infotainment package is the available UVO eServices Infotainment system. This system is powered by Microsoft and allows for the integration of your cellphone to manage music, utilize apps, and control your system using verbal commands so your focus can stay on the road. An 8-inch display on the centre stack is the home for all of this, plus your choice of audio systems.

Easy-Going Performance

Choose from a six-speed manual or a six-speed automatic in the 2016 Kia Soul, although the 2.0-litre engine is only available with the latter. All Souls are front-wheel drive only. Efficiency is the heart of the Soul to make this model the ideal choice for city or highway driving.
