Sedan after sedan. SUV after SUV. Truck after truck. The automotive world can be quite blah at times. Enter the 2016 Kia Soul. Sporting funky styling and a fun-to-drive attitude, the 2016 Soul jazzes up the automotive market. For something new and exciting, you’ll find it with the Soul.
The Kia Soul’s 2016 lineup is a five-passenger wagon that shows off three fully-loaded trim levels to choose from. The Soul’s base model starts out the lineup with 16-inch alloy wheels, full power accessories, driver-selectable steering settings, tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel and height-adjustable driver seat. Rear seats are 60/40-split folding. Electronics feature Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity, six-speaker sound system with satellite radio, auxiliary audio jack and USB port. Opting for the optional Convenience package adds automotive headlights, rearview camera and 4.3-inch touchscreen.
The mid-range Soul + comes with the choice of many optional packages to up the Souls game. The available features, like automotive climate control, leather-wrapped steering wheel and gearshift knob, simulated leather cabin trim and upgraded interior accents. Electronics come with many upgrades, from an eight-inch touchscreen display to navigation system and HD radio and premium eight-speaker Infinity audio system. Also included is Kia’s Uvo eServices infotainment service. Another optional bundle that’s worthwhile is the Designer Collection package. This newly-added package features unique 18-inch wheels, two-tone exterior paint and leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob.
The top-trim Soul ! Is the most luxurious of them all with equipment that boasts power-folding side mirrors with integrated LED turn signals, auto-dimming rearview mirror and eight-way power driver seat with two-way power lumbar support. Upholstery is cozy leather, interior accents are chrome and fascia accents and bumpers are body colors.
Four-cylinder Power with Excellent Fuel Economy: The 2016 Soul offers respectable power and enjoyable quality for rides around town or even high-speed travels on the interstate. Steering is well-weighted and precise, especially around turns. So what gives the 2016 Soul its vroom? Depending on the model, you’ll get one of two different engine choices. The base Soul houses a 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine paired to a six-speed manual transmission ; a six-speed automatic is optional. Opt for the Soul + or Soul ! And you’ll get a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine combined to a six-speed automatic. Fuel economy is excellent for each engine.
An Interior that Explodes with Personality: If there’s one thing the 2016 Soul offers is personality - even on the inside. The interior of the Soul offers a nice combo of modern looks and expressive styling details. There’s also a nice balance of form and function. Materials are of high quality, gauges and controls are logically placed and easy to use and space is abundant no matter where you sit. Behind rear seat backs is 19 cubic feet of cargo room; this number grows to 61 cubic feet with rear seat backs folded down. These numbers are greater than most compact hatchbacks and even matches some SUVs.
