2014 Kia Soul Hatchback Review

Dual engine: a 126bhp 1.6-litres diesel engine and the other is 130bhp 1.6-litres petrol. The petrol is not turbocharged whereas the diesel has the enormous shove at the medium and low revs.
It provides a good body control even to the taller drivers. It will provide you a jerk-free ride. The steering wheel will be quite uncertain offering you three weight settings that you can put in it.
Although the engines are quite smooth in rev and as soon as it will start working hard it will become noisy. In the diesel version also you may experience the vibration through the pedals the noisy wind sound comes in the motor speed which are generated by the tall windscreen and soul’s large door mirror.
Soul is having an aggressive market price value. But you can surely get the opportunity to enjoy the massive discount offered by the dealers. This car is not an ideal one to be a company car as the CO2 emission is quite high therefore the fuelling is a bit expensive.
Kia soul offers you the 100,000- mile/7 years warranty to raise the confidence of the buyers in its reliability. The cabins are bolted well. You can enjoy the quality touch of the classy material used. Kia was regarded as the most reliable car by the survey done by the JD power customer satisfaction.
Soul offers you good safety equipments with hill start assist, six airbags, isofix child-seat mounting points and a marvelous tyre-pressure monitoring system on every version. To protect the car from the thieves it is provided with the deadlocks and immobilizers.
It will be very reliable for the tall drivers to get adjusted with the steering wheel and occupy the ideal driving position. Although the forward visibility is good but the over the shoulder view is quite restricted. All the buttons are easy to use and quite handy.
Soul offers you the boxy dimensions. The generous headroom is quite awesome. Rear seat legroom can accommodate around 6 footers. The boot is square in shape but offers an average size and you can discover a big step after folding the back seats.
16-inch steel wheels are allotted with the entry-level start version. The other cool equipments are the air conditioning, DAB radio etc.  More improved features will be provided in other versions but that will be a bit pricy.
