2021 Kia Soul

Most base line cars use cheap materials. Definitely not the case with my Kia Soul. Cherry black, tan interior with leather center console, elbow rest and leather wrapped steering wheel. The vehicle is very peppy and responsive. Good gas mileage. The ignition stop go feature gets annoying at times but it can be deactivated. I’m very impressed with the car! Love it!



This vehicle sucks worse than you can imagine. I made a big mistake buying it. I had a Toyota Matrix during the 2008 Recession and wanted a fuel efficient vehicle for the Chinese Virus Recession to commute long distances to find work. The 2021 Kia Soul is a pathetic useless xxx. Pay the extra money and get a real vehicle. I'll never buy a Kia ever again.


Most comfortable ride

Had a family emergency and had to go to Tennessee. We have been making this trip for over 30 years and this was by far the most comfortable ride we have ever had for this trip. Excellent gas mileage too.


As anticipated the new car feels great

The new car we purchased was exactly what we wanted. It meets what we need in a brand new car. It has everything we ever wanted and then some



I bought 2021 Kia green soul ex. I did a lot of research before buying this vehicle. I absolutely love it. Drives smoothly. loaded with technology and plenty of interior room. I love the green color and my second choice would probably be black. I recommend the ex version. Get most value with it and a lot of safety features. You can buy a similar type vehicle but you will pay a lot more. Gave reliability five stars because of reputation of kia vehicles but I have not owned mine long enough to really know. Purchased on December 2 2020.


Great car for the money

We have owned our new Kia Soul X-line for 2 months now. It is primarily my wife’s car, and she loves it so far! The engine/ transmission are smooth and responsive and we love the styling. The car is averaging right at 31 mpg after just over 2600 miles. The ride is a bit stiff, but overall the car exceeds our expectations! I would highly recommend this car to others.


I've chosen Kia Soul for my last 3 cars. Love them

Kia Soul works great for my needs as My husband is totally disabled. The room for the wheelchair and groceries. I haul everything in my car. And there so comfortable . As I am the one that does ALL the running.


Love my new Kia

The only issue I have is the heat/AC fan makes an awful noise and it affects the output of heat/air intermittently. The a/c stops cooling when the fan speed is adjusted, it just blows warm air. A blog noted this was an issue as early as the 2018 model.


2nd soul I've owned

Car has all the bells i wanted within my price range. Great handling and comfortable quiet car. Couldn't ask for more! Has everything without a big price tag.


Well it's been 2 weeks l got the Kia Soul, so far

It's nice, the only thing I don't like I have to download Sirus radio and contected to the usb . Also don't like the the vehicle turn off on a in stop.
