Kia Soul Review

Born-again Soul sets its sights on the sub-compact SUV class.

Kia Soul Review

Still funky and unique as ever, but does the Kia Soul still make sense?

Kia Soul Review

If you’re thinking about buying the Kia Soul, chances are you’ve fallen for its quirky, attention-seeking styling. While certainly not for everyone, the Soul exudes visual attitude few small cars can match. The box-car trend originated in Japan and has more recently taken off in the US where cars like the Kia Soul, Scion xB (Toyota Rukus here) and the Nissan Cube target mostly Gen Y drivers with their combination of chunky, squared dimensions and small-car fuel costs...

Some models do surprisingly well in one country and bomb completely in another.

2017 Kia Soul update revealed in Korea: Australian revisions due by year’s end

A mildly-updated 2017 Kia Soul has been revealed on the company’s Korean website, bringing a lightly refreshed look and new interior options for the boxy hatch. While the differences are subtle, the new Soul sports a revised front bumper for a toughened, SUV-like look with a faux skid plate, and more pronounced fog lights...

Kia tops US J.D. Power quality survey: Soul, Sportage the big winners

Korean car maker Kia has become the first non-premium brand in 27 years to top the Initial Quality Survey conducted by J.D. Power in the United States. Now in its 30th year, the J.D. Power IQS is an annual survey that analyses responses from vehicle owners in 26 segments, evaluating driving experience, engine and transmission performance, and a broad range of quality-related problems within the first 90 days of ownership...

Kia small SUV role likely to be filled by repositioned Soul, Niro unlikely for Oz

Kia is expected to reposition the Soul crossover hatch as its entry-level SUV model within months - but it will mainly come down to price, rather than ride height. Ever since the current-generation Soul arrived on sale in Australia in 2014, it has been considered too dear for what it offered in the market. There has also been a non-existent marketing spend around that model...

Kia Soul, Rondo will avoid the axe

Kia Australia insists two of its slowest-selling models, the Rondo MPV and Soul hatch, are firmly part of its local range for the foreseeable future. The Korean company has been pruning back its line-up of late, ditching the slow-selling Pro_Cee’d GT hot hatch late last year and the Cerato Koup range earlier this month on account of meagre sales, though it says it will launch a 'GTi' version of the next-generation 2018 Cerato five-door to offset this, eventually...
