I bought the plus model with the technology and primo package. I've only had the car for a few months, but I love the upgrade from my previous car, which was a 2003 Chevrolet Trailblazer. The engine is a lot better, and it's a zippy little car that fits into parking spaces easier. I love the safety features that come with the car. It includes adaptive cruise control, autonomous emergency braking, blind spot monitor, and rear cross check technology. The autonomous emergency braking has already saved us once since buying the car. My husband almost rear ended a car that suddenly stopped in front of us. The car reacted faster than he did.
Story
I get honked at by other Kia Soul drivers. We're kind of like punch buggies now, I think.
Pros
My favorite features of the car would definitely be the panoramic sunroof. The car looks so bright when driving it with the cover open. Makes the space inside the car look so much bigger. There is a ton of space in the front seats. When I sit in the passenger side, my feet do not hit the front of the car. My other favorite feature would include the heated front and back seats and heated steering wheel. Not too many cars come with heated back seats, and my kids love them during these cold, winter days. Also, the safety features that come with the vehicle are amazing. The adaptive cruise con... (more)
Cons
I've had a few problems with the navigation that comes included with the car. Sometimes it's unresponsive or it can't find where I'm located. I've also had a few issues using Waze on Android Auto, but I'm not so sure if that's a software issue on my phone or the car itself. The fuel economy is not as great as expected. I'm consistently getting less than what was quoted when buying the car.

2019 Kia Soul - The Soul kicks it up a notch!

If you asked me a year ago if I would own a Kia, I would have laughed at you. However, I saw the 2019 Kia Soul Turbo a test drive and it was love at first sight. I saw that sleek design and thought it was lovely; it's sleek midnight black with an eye-catching red trim. I knew I had to test drive it, and I am so glad that I did! The 2019 Soul is a huge improvement; this baby is a dream, and when they say turbo, they mean it! To make things even better, it gets amazing gas mileage, so you get to save money and help the environment. What's not to like?! The interior of the 2019 Kia Soul also received a major upgrade. The seats and the steering wheel are heated, the stereo is fantastic, the seats are comfortable and very adjustable, there are lights that adjust with your music, there is Ap... (more)
Story
My fiancŽ and I drove to a field one night. We packed dinner and parked the car. We opened the sun roof and laid the seats back. We ate and listened to music while we looked at the stars. It was such a simply, but lovely night.
Pros
Great gas mileage, comfortable, spacious, Apple Car Play, built-in navigation system, safe.

Overall Score: 7.7/10

Safety Features: 8/10

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) gave the 2019 Kia Soul five out of five stars in crash tests except for the rollover in which it received four out of five stars. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) gave the Soul a Top Safety Pick award in overall testing.

Available driver assistance technology equipment and features include adaptive cruise control, emergency braking, forward collision warning, and blind-spot monitoring, depending on the model.


Value: 8/10

The Kia Soul continues to offer a lot of car for the money among small hatchback and SUV rivals. There are five trim levels for the 2019 Kia Soul. They are the Kia Soul Base, Kia Soul Plus, Kia Soul Exclaim, Soul EV, and Soul EV Plus. Pricing for the Soul Base starts at $16,490 MSRP, with the better equipped Soul Plus starting at $21,430 MSRP. Moving to the top tier Soul Exclaim puts the starting price at $22,990 MSRP. The Soul EV starts at $33,950 MSRP, and the Soul EV Plus is $35,950 MSRP.

The Kia Soul EV is well-priced for an all-electric model, but its relatively short range puts it in competition with the less expensive Hyundai Ioniq Electric. However, the sporty Soul Exclaim, with its turbocharged engine, makes for a more practical alternative to a Ford Fiesta ST or Honda Civic Si, for example. The Nissan Kicks offers the Soul some tough competition on price, and it is slightly larger. But the Kicks lacks some available features and doesn't offer any more powerful engine options other than its 122-horsepower four-cylinder.

The Kia Soul has a long 10-year, 100,000-mile powertrain warranty and five-year, 60,000-mile bumper-to-bumper coverage. Only models from Hyundai and Mitsubishi can match that.


Tech Features: 8/10

Besides the driver assistance features mentioned above, the base Kia Soul gets standard infotainment system equipment like a 5.0-inch touchscreen, Bluetooth connectivity, a USB port, air conditioning, and a 6-speaker audio system. Stepping up to the Plus trim level adds fog lights, cruise control, keyless entry, and automatic climate control. Some available options include a Harman/Kardon sound system, a panoramic sunroof, and a larger 4.3-inch gauge cluster display.

Upgraded infotainment offerings come standard with the EV and EV Plus models of the Soul. They are feature-rich and include the UVO infotainment system with an 8.0-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, a navigation system, a heated steering wheel, and heated front seats.


Practicality: 8/10

The Soul has 24.2 cubic feet with the rear seats up. Rear seats down, the cargo capacity is increased to 61.3 cubic feet of cargo space. That makes the Kia Soul more spacious than some models like the Mazda CX-3 and Toyota C-HR. Interior seating is comfortable, and entry and exit from the vehicle should be easy for anyone thanks to tall doors that open relatively wide. Legroom may be a challenge for larger adults in the rear seats, though.

Unlike most small SUVs, however, all-wheel-drive isn't offered on any Soul model, and its relatively low ground clearance means it won't handle unpaved roads or deep snow as well as a Subaru Crosstrek.


Styling & Design: 7/10

The Soul's exterior is dependent on taste, with more stylish rivals like the Mazda CX-3 and Toyota C-HR that forgo the box shape for more sleek curves and sportier stylings appealing to certain demographics more. An updated Soul arrives for 2020.

The interior of the base Kia Soul gets seats covered in a reasonably nice cloth upholstery. Upper-tier trims get all the extras such as leather seats, with some options and upgrades available. Those cars also get a few more design touches inside to brighten the interior.


Driving Experience: 7/10

The Kia Soul offers some performance with the Exclaims seven-speed transmission coupled with the turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine. It is not breaking any records for sure, but it does pack some punch. The base 1.6-liter is lackluster.

Handling is good, and the suspension provides a decently comfortable ride. At higher speeds, maybe from the design, wind noise becomes noticeable. But even with the turbocharged engine, the Soul isn't as fun to drive as a Mazda CX-3.


Fuel Efficiency: 8/10

Fuel economy for the Soul is on par with the competition, and the Soul EV offers something unusual among its rivals. Rivals like the Honda HR-V will give better gas mileage with similar powertrains, and the Chevy Bolt has a far better range than the Soul EV.

The 1.6-liter 130 horsepower four-cylinder with the manual transmission and FWD drivetrain gets 24/30/27 MPG city/hwy/combined. The same powertrain with the 6-speed automatic transmission gets 26/31/28 MPG city/hwy/combined according to EPA estimates. The 2.0-liter gets 25/30/27 MPG city/hwy/combined according to the EPA. The 1.6-liter turbo gets 26/31/28 MPG city/hwy/combined. The Soul EV is rated at 111 miles of range, and a combined 108 MPGe.
