Dependable, comfortable, and fun to drive!

This vehicle is a joy to own. It is comfortable and roomy. I am able to pick up construction items that I need for projects in my home due to the vehicle's adaptability. My vehicle has a standard transmission, which I love! The dashboard is well-organized and easy to use. I love this vehicle!

Fun, cool, and best value for money

I just bought a used 2018 soul + with 23k miles and it is easily the most fun car I’ve ever driven. It just drives so smoothly and feels zippy. I love the interior and carplay is a must. It really is the most comfortable car, like the seats and headrest are soft and cushiony in the best way. Luckily I found one with a spare tire which was a must for me and I know they don’t all have it. I’m hoping for good reliability and will update here as it goes. So far- it is my favorite car yet and I came from Honda.

Favorite car EVER!

I’m 50 years old and I have a habit of trading in cars. I thought I would always be a Honda girl until I test drove and purchased my 2018 silver KIA soul. I can honestly say I don’t have a single complaint! For 18k you can’t buy a more user friendly, feature full, solidly made car. I really don’t care for the new style on the recent model renew. The slitted headlights and hatch changes are ugly, but that’s my opinion. Maybe, hopefully, KIA will return to the older headlight/hatch styling. I drive just to drive because it’s that fun!! I wish I had bought one a long time ago. LOVE MY SOUL!!

Kia Soul Plus is excellent.

Never thought compact vehicle would driver this well with sufficient room for five passengers inside. Excellent 2018 vehicle with top rating from consumer reports on both reliability and customer satisfaction.

Exactly what we needed

Great car for the price. Exactly what we were looking for. Plenty of space for shopping or the dog. Excellent fuel economy. Sits high in traffic but not too big.

Beautiful car

The car is amazing and the sports mode and engine they have in it for a smaller size vehicle is amazing. Form the outside it may look small but the inside is super roomy with fold down seats. The car is also easy to work on and have been running as smooth as butter.
