It is refreshing when a car company takes a very popular vehicle and made it even better. They changed the fog light positions and gave it a backpack style tailgate. It is a much cleaner shape and the lines are a little softer.
Other improvements include LED lights on most models and chrome door handles. There is also a panoramic sunroof on higher-spec models. More features added inside are a circular ripple design replacing the square touches combined with the soft touch instrument panel and the leather covered steering wheel and gearlever. All of this makes the cabin much more attractive than the previous models.
This model is a little wider than the latest version giving you more room in the cabin and improved stability. The wheelbase and overall length have also been extended giving passengers added legroom. They have reinforced the insulation pad and expansion foam to reduce the road noise in the cabin. Steering is regulated by Kia’s Flex Steer system, which allows the driver to choose between three steering setups to suit the conditions. At high speeds, the ‘Sport’ setting reduces assistance to allow greater stability and feel, while in ‘Comfort’ the steering becomes lighter for parking and low-speed maneuvering. ‘Normal’ mode provides a middle ground.
The new Soul is available in five trims, ranging from the basic ‘Start’ model to the range-topping ‘Maxx’. Standard equipment is generous, and incorporates DAB radio, Flex Steer, a tire pressure monitoring system, keyless entry, air conditioning and steering wheel-mounted controls.
