Character, Through and Through
Creative styling, fun colors, and plenty of personal touches make the 2016 Kia Soul stand out in any crowd - you'll never have trouble finding it in a crowded parking lot. It is boxy and upright, but features sheet metal that helps to soften these features. The bulldog-like front end, with an upright fascia and lights that don't blend back much to the sides, gives way to the floating roof with its angled window line. Flared bodywork runs up and over the front and rear wheels and is noticeable along the sides as well. The rear end has tall tail lights that run up nearly the entire height of the vertical hatch. Four different wheels are available, ranging from 16 to 18 inches, while a roof rack is another functional option. The Soul is known for its bright, funky colours, with names like Solar Yellow, Caribbean Blue, and Alien. Select either the Urban or Sport Edition for even more distinct style.
Inside the 2016 Kia Soul, there is seating for up to five passengers, in cloth or leather seats. Heated seating is available in both rows, while air-cooled seats are a special option for the front row. High-quality, soft-touch materials fill the interior, with piano black or satin metal trim available. The layout is ergonomic, with big, rounded cut-outs and chunky controls that are easy to work. Interior features match up to the tech-savvy look of the Soul, with Bluetooth hands-free technology standard and keyless entry and Smart Key with push button start available. A top-of-the-line Infinity Audio system comes with an 8-inch multimedia interface that also features voice-activated navigation. The UVO infotainment system, powered by Microsoft, is available on both the EX and SX trim levels. Measurements inside the Soul are generous for a compact vehicle, with approximately 1,000 millimeters of head room in all seats, as well as nearly 1,400 millimeters of shoulder room throughout. With the rear seats up, there is 532 liters of cargo space, but with them stowed, this expands to 1,402 liters, which ranks it near the top of the segment.
Two power options are available in the 2016 Kia Soul. A six-speed manual is the standard transmission with the 1.6-litre engine, while a six-speed automatic is available with the 1.6-litre and standard on the 2.0-litre engines. The Soul is front-wheel drive with responsive handling.
