2014 Kia Soul Review

August 6, 2014

Kia Soul, we had a close look today morning and it looks very stylist, attractive car. Lets discuss about features here.

About Kia Soul

Kia Soul is a compact crossover car designed at Kia’s design centre in California. First generation of Kia Soul was introduced in 2008 at Geneva Paris Motor Show.

The second generation of Kia Soul launched in UK in Spring 2014, the second generation 2014 Kia Soul model design is based on the Track’ster concept with 28.7 percent increase in torsional rigidity with 2,570 mm longer wheelbase, 1800 mm broader and same height of 1600 mm. The second generation model is bolder and more practical than previous one.

Kia Soul Exterior Look

You cannot blink your eyes. Kia Soul looks very classy, bold styling look. The two tone colour gives an impressive look to Soul. Its Black, Titanium, Silver, White, Inferno read, acid green and solar yellow colours gives an premium  look to Soul.

Kia Soul Interior Look

Kia soul looks very bigger and roomy inside. Soul offers plenty of headroom and boot space compare to some of its rivals. It gives very comfort and smooth ride. Soul sounds very premium quality using soft touch materials and black gloss trim offers a modern look and feel. There is a much more storage than we think about.


Kia Soul comes with  8 inch Satellite navigation system coupled with 8 speaker infinity sound system.It comes with DAB/RDS Radio with MP3 Compatibility and steering wheel mounted controls.

Available Kia Soul Models

2014 Kia Soul available in five different trim ranges – Start, Connect,  Connect Plus, Mixx and Maxx. Maxx is the high trim range model. Mix model gives an option of two tone colour where as Maxx model includes panoramic sunroof.

All models will get 60:40 split folding end row seats for extra storage.


We like the Kia Soul to include smart parking features to all models. So there is no compromise of safety in any of the model. The safety features includes Hill Start assist, tyre pressure motoring system, engine immobiliser, flex seater, emergency stop signaling, front and side airbags, speed sensing auto door locking and brake assist system.

Engines, drive and performance

Kia soul is available in 1.6 litre diesel and petrol engines . whereas diesel engine available in both automatic and manual to chose where as petrol engine is available in manual only.

It gives smooth and comfortable driving experience with plenty of power and grip. The steering has three settings, which adjust how much effort is required to turn the wheel.

Practicality and Reliability

As this is five seater and five door crossover car has lots of stroage and space that feels comfortable. It also comes on long warranty which is good. A large windscreen and small A pillars gives an excellent view out for driving.

Kia was a non-mover in the 2014 Driver Power customer satisfaction survey, holding an impressive seventh position out of 33 manufacturers and beating the likes of Audi, Honda and Toyota. As this is very new car, not tested yet for Euro NCAP test but we think it will deserve a good result same as previous Kia Soul model.

Kia Soul is wonderful to drive as it gives comfortable driving experience. The lots of equipment and features make the Soul good value car.
