2015 Kia Soul Road Test

Kristin Varela

Editor's note: This review was written in October 2013 about the 2014 Kia Soul. Little of substance has changed with this year's model. To see what's new for 2015, click here, or check out a side-by-side comparison of the two model years.

As of the 2013 model year, the first-generation Kia Soul was more than 4 years old, and in today's fast-moving world of vehicle design, that's quite old (an adjective Kia certainly wouldn't want associated with its brand). It was time for a complete makeover.

Kia delivers with an all-new Soul for 2014, an ever-so-slightly more mature version that still manages to keep its youthful Soul soul.

Just about everything on the 2014 Soul is new — save for the general funky vibe. (Compare the 2013 and 2014 versions side by side here.) The once-trendy segment of square breadboxes on wheels appears to be waning, though the Scion xB and Nissan Cube continue for yet another model year despite continued rumors of their impending demise. Today's Soul competitors might also include the shapelier Fiat 500L and Mini Countryman. Compare them with the Soul here.

The 2014 Soul comes in three trims. The base features a 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine with either a six-speed manual or automatic transmission. The Plus and top-of-the-line Exclaim come with a more powerful 2.0-liter and only with the automatic. I drove both the Plus and the Exclaim. See them all side by side here.

Well-made, functional, economical vehicle

by Allegro con Brio from Chapel Hill, NC on February 10, 2018

The Kia Soul is an excellent compact economy car. It has a lot of interior space for its size, delivers decent engine performance (with the 2.0 liter engine), and provides a good driver position. We... Read full review
