Some little details and special bulky bottom (part of which is hinted in front) suggest early opportunities for off-road vehicle. But Soul’ster remains mainly model with front wheel drive.

And here is a little impression of the Kia Soul

I personally was disappointed by truck. I expected better of the cee’d interior with better materials and better fit. Basic has fewer extras than the cee’d and is more expensive. In the current autobild a comparison between the Kia Soul, Citroen C3 Picaso and the Honda Jazz. They share the same experiences.

Hi, I’m one of the first 12. Probably the first, according to the dealer! Kia Soul 1.6 Petrol, base. For the three months and 3,000 km. I can say that I am extremely pleased with the behavior of the time (we got the last snow day). The interior is more functional than beautiful. After the first 1000 km is more relaxed and there are proper dynamics. Ride a little firm. Urban highest position is perfect also for travel up to 200 kilometers, or tired. Sounda is more than good for basic equipment. The cost is according to specification. It is the car of my dreams, but for the money (14,000 euros discount) is perfect. Plus 5 years warranty unlimited mileage!??? In this crisis … Overall, I recommend!

As the owner of the model (1.6 petrol – basic equipment) I can say that much of the information is correct (of course without commenting diesel). Would be nice opomenat on specific data, max. speed, acceleration, etc. Perhaps information from current owners would be interesting and relevant story in if the authors had included the topic before creating it. About the owner of the car I tested, it was “advertising service” model of BBB.

For such a short ride can not say much about the car, but Kia Soul made me a very nice impression. Modern in concept and design, economical and agile diesel, high seating position and good view in all directions. The materials in the cabin are relatively good quality, the model is clearly aimed at a young audience.
