The Kia Soul is all new for 2014, entering its second generation after being introduced in 2009. The 2014 Soul blends tasteful, but bold design with a functional comfortable interior and an affordable price tag.
The award winning design team at Kia has been working hard to make a good thing even better. Rocker panels to roof, hood to hatch, the Soul is completely redesigned.
Overall the 2014 model is incrementally lower, longer and wider than previous models and the wheelbase has been increased. The overall size increase adds interior space and the lowered hip point makes the seats more comfortable.
Two engines are available underneath the Soul’s hood. The base unit is a 1.6-liter four-cylinder, or you can go up to a 2.—liter unit that puts out 164 horsepower and 151 lb-ft of torque. Both engines feature gasoline direct injection and variable valve timing to increase horsepower and torque without hampering fuel efficiency.
The interior takes huge step ups and features higher quality materials all the way around, making the 2014 Soul a genuinely nice place to spend time. All of the buttons and switches have a premium feel and the piano-black accents inject a healthy dose of sophistication into the passenger realm.
The Soul has an available navigation system that is colorful and extremely responsive. Other available extras include a 10-speaker Infinity audio system with light-up front speakers that pulsate and change colors to the beat of whatever you’re listening to. Heated and ventilated front seats are also on the menu.
Overall the new Soul is efficient and large step up from the already amazing and best-selling generation. You truly have to see the new Soul to believe it.
