This Kia Soul review is meant to offer more insightful information on the car that has only been for two years on the market, but has already made a lot of friends, especially among young folks, those for whom the Kia Soul is their first car.
Launched in 2010, this car breaks the technological barrier that kept away inexperienced drivers from really connecting with their car and being able to fully experience the pleasure of driving.
Not only does this car come with an adorable design, but it also is extremely “user-friendly”, being extremely easy to maneuver and being equipped with straightforward features. These are reasons enough to achieve a spectacular impact on the youth market niche.
Moreover, the Kia Soul commercial, clearly targeting the youth, is unbelievably hilarious and has thousand of views on the internet, giving birth to numerous comments, inspiring, positive, fun and highly appreciative. The commercial introduces “a new way to roll” using hamsters as characters in the video and a catchy musical background. The commercial has inspired owners and people around the world to write their own Kia Soul review, praising their favorite new car.
The advertising concept, along with the inspiring features the car displays have consistently increased the popularity of the Soul, not only among young people, but also among adults with a rich sense of humor, a very good understanding of the driving style this car is trying to promote and of the driving needs it satisfies.
Its sporty design and its well-equipped interior make the Soul a totally cool car. However, even if it has been only two years since Kia Soul was released on the market, the producers have already thought about a new model. The 2012 Kia Soul, as it was displayed at the 2011 auto show in New York, promises increased power, a new design and an even more appealing interior.
Important features that need to be mentioned in any Kia Soul review are the sculpted hood, the side mirrors that benefit from turn signals, the redesigned bumpers (the central vent on the front bumper can be visualized on the Optima Sedan), as well as a new display for the headlights and taillights, which have also been modified, for both aesthetics and a better driving experience.
As for the interior, the 2012 Soul is equipped with a tilt and telescopic steering wheel – which is a standard feature, the Vehicle Stability Management system and the Hill-start Assist Control that solves the often annoying problem of starting the car while on an incline. For an intimate driving experience, the model has additional sound insulation.
Furthermore, so that you may really enjoy the “rolling sensation”, the Kia Soul also adds a polished area around the center console and the gear stick, nice semi-bucket seats for the driver and the passenger in front and a nice stereo system, complete with CD player, six speakers and a USB port. Any Kia Soul review we found on the Internet speaks very highly of these features.
Another cool standard feature is the touch-screen, which can be activated by the sound of your voice.
The power has also been increased – the improved 2.0-liter engine is capable of delivering 164 bhp and 148 lb.-ft. of torque. Along with this comes another important advantage that should be mentioned in any Kia Soul review: fuel consumption optimization – a sensitive subject for all drivers.
The 2012 Kia Soul comes in three versions: Soul, Soul+ and Soul! The price is also convenient and all the additional features this model comes with prove that it is worth every penny.
While you are waiting for the new model to appear, this Kia Soul review should give you some perspective on the characteristics of the Soul and the kind of drivers that will enjoy it.
