Happy customer and happy wallet

2018 Kia Soul Base

I have had this vehicle for over a year and half, and I have had no issues with the car. The Kia Soul is a great car, especially for someone who is looking to purchase their first new vehicle. The car is fantastic for the price you pay. I have the base model, automatic, which has all the standard features, nothing special. The car drives smoothly. Brakes are a little sensitive at first, but as you get used to the vehicle, it's not so bad. The car doesn't sit too low to the ground, but it also isn't big and feels like your driving a tank. It's quite spacious inside and has a smaller trunk area, but the back seats lay down so it does provide more room if you need it. My biggest downside on the vehicle is that it doesn't come with a spare tire. However, on amazon, you can find a spare tire kit that comes with everything you may need for like $70-$100. Overall, I love the vehicle and thinks it's definitely a good buy.

- Kathryn D

Family car - accessible, comfortable, and smooth action!

2018 Kia Soul

Hard to replace transmission - took over 6 months to get the replacement to work correctly. Comfortable seats with adjustable headrests. Excellent heating and air conditioning. Heated seats and dual heating and air conditioning controls in the front seat. Separate heating and air conditioning controls in the middle and rear seats. Plenty of room in the cargo area - deep and available areas to hang grocery bag handles. Has great "pick up" on interstate. Easy to handle no matter the condition of roadways. Great vehicle for trips or for around town. Gas mileage is reasonable in town - better on interstate. Audio speakers are well balanced. Side rear doors open flat and can be opened with key fob - wonderful when have an arm load of cargo.

- J C

Kia souls may be plenty but they are not good!

2018 Kia Soul

The car is way too small in the trunk. I can't even put a suitcase or diaper bag in there since there is no depth. When you take off, the car sounds like you are breaking the sound barrier but you are only going 30 mph and it takes forever to get up to speed. I say a few "hail mary's" if I accidentally pull out in front of someone because you may get ran over. There is no cd player so you are almost coerced into paying for sirius. It should get better gas mileage for something that is basically the size of a go cart. I hate the car but can't trade it in because 6 months after buying it new it is half the value of a new car.I give it 2 instead of 1 stars because it does have good head room for the driver and a good warranty.

Kia Soul-Both Fun and Stylish

2018 Kia Soul Base

My car is very comfortable for driving short and long distances. There is plenty of space inside, even though it doesn't look like a big car. I often use it to haul gardening supplies or treasures I find at estate sales. My dogs are constant companions, and it is very comfortable for them. I love the way the car drives both in town and on the highway. It has proven to be very reliable--especially during the winter months. I also think it is a cute car while still being sleek and sporty. The color options were great too! Overall, it gets good gas mileage and has been very easy to care for. While it is a basic Kia Soul, I still feel as though I am driving a very high quality car.

- Tam H

Kia Soul is sporty but practical a balance that fits different lifestyles.

2018 Kia Soul

First of all I really like the gas mileage. The Kia Soul really handles nicely with good power when entering and exiting the highway. I like the "sport" drive mode, which gives you the feel of a sports car and hugs the road and curves. The seats fold down in the back so that you can haul equipment etc. . . I wasn't sure at first about the room but both my children are 5'9 - 6'2 and ride in the back. They do not have any problems with leg room. The only thing I would change is do not sell it as an SUV. I do not like the pressure noise when the windows are open. It makes a loud noise throughout the car no matter if you have the rear or front windows open.

- Jennifer M

Great car for singles and couples without children.

2018 Kia Soul

It is a really great car! I love almost everything about it. I love that I can use the radio to talk on my phone, and that I can connect my phone via Bluetooth to listen to my music. I love the way it looks, the way it drives, the comfort of the seats. There are only two things I dislike. The first is that it does not get very good gas mileage. The tank is filled up at $30, and it only gets about 25 mpg. The other thing I dislike is that it is too small to be a good family car. The trunk is small, so when going on long trips, things also have to be packed into the back seat, making it extremely difficult to travel if you have more than one child.

- Mary M

2018 Kia Soul + safe and affordable!

2018 Kia Soul +

I have owned a Kia Soul before upgrading to the 2018 Kia Soul +, I owned the 2013 Kia Soul, and it ran perfectly for the 3 years that I owned it. Unfortunately I wrecked the car a couple months back but it kept me completely safe. Now I have the 2018 souls plus and it comes with apple carplay which I highly recommend if you are an apple user. Your maps show on the screen along with texts and your music, so you never have to look at your phone while driving. The car drives very smoothly and still carries the classic Kia Soul aesthetic. I highly recommend this car to anyone who is looking for a safe and affordable starter car.

- Emily M

The Kia soul is a10/10 hands down!

2018 Kia Soul

My 2018 Kia soul is wonderful. So far I have had no problems aside for and it has performed wonderfully. It is super reliable and the camera that appears on screen while reversing is actually very clear and useful. I know it speaks more for the driver than the car, but it is also very safe. It rolls right over bumps and hardly jostles any of my passengers. The small area making the vehicle seem more secure. Also, for such a visually compact car it actually holds quite a bit of cargo. The Kia soul is appealing to look at, to drive, and much easier on the checkbooks than it is competitors. 10/10 all the way!

- Pamela W

Small but spacious, cute and tough.

2018 Kia Soul Base

I purchased my Kia soul in December of 2017. It is my first new car and I could not have made a better choice. This compact SUV type vehicle has great head room and space. The rear seats lay flat for maximum cargo space. My large breed dog and his kennel all fit. This vehicle is easy on gas and needs very little maintenance. The seats were a little stiff at first but after a few months and I car seat cover they really are comfortable now. This vehicle has been great in all weather. With its short and stout built it plows through snow even without 4wd. I have and will continue to recommend this vehicle.

- Brandy L

Cute little compact with sass and Soul!

2018 Kia Soul

I love my Kia Soul so much that when my first one got totaled I immediately had to get another one. It is really comfortable and easy to handle. I love the entertainment features- mine is carplay enabled so I have seamless access to everything I need without getting distracted while on the road. Ideally I wish I could gets more gas mileage but I also know this is not a small sedan so overall the fuel performance is satisfactory. I love my car and as long as you take care of it and give it scheduled maintenance then it will love you right back!

- Salgado D

Red and white 2018 Kia soul!

2018 Kia Soul

At first, I didn't think I would like it. I mainly bought it for the color scheme (red on top, with a white body.) But, after driving it for awhile it turns out I love it! So far I haven't had any issues. It drives smoothly, and despite its box like appearance it is actually pretty roomy. The features that my car have are not many. I am sure you can add more if you want, but it came with XM radio, GPS, and a touchscreen system. I drive it daily and it has yet to fail me. 10/10 stars. Would purchase again.

- Sarah T

Very comfortable, reliable and economical!

2018 Kia Soul

I love my Kia Soul. This is the 5th one that I have had since they have come out. I usually keep them between 2 - 3 years. I have never had a problem with them, but I put a lot of miles on my vehicles. There is plenty of room in my vehicle for 3 adults leaving room for suitcases, pillows and other items that we travel with. I usually get between 32 and 35 miles to a gallon so that helps as well. It is a comfortable ride. With Bluetooth added, I do not have to worry about trying to answer my phone either.

- Joanne B

My Kia is super comfortable to drive in. It feels like it was made for me.

2018 Kia Soul Base

My Kia is the best car I have driven. It feels very comfortable to drive while also feeling like a little race car. The base model is good and all especially for the price, however the headlights are manual and the paint job scratches very easily. The car wash scratched my paint the second time being washed. Steering is very good and the sound is amazing. It feel amazing being in my Kia Soul. Very roomie and MANY cup holders upfront. This car is fun and easy to back up in and there is little blind spots.

- Kelly B

Fun no nonsense reliable transportation. Fun to toss around.

2018 Kia Soul

I purchased the Kia Soul base with the six speed manual trans. I wish I had the option to buy the + or! With a manual. The Soul is a very practical car with lots of room for its size. The build and finish are of high quality. I look forward to my drive time in the Soul it's fun to drive with a smooth shift gate. A little underpowered but it was never advertised as pocket rocket. It is basic decent reliable solid transportation. . . For the price you cannot go wrong.

- Antonio B

Driving my Kia Soul has been my best car experience.

2018 Kia Soul Base

It is very comfortable to ride, because it is spacious. I love my dark grey color on the outside, and my black interior. The car rides so smooth great for long distances. The radio is also a great feature. The sound gets pretty loud even when it is just at 20. Plus there is a Bluetooth feature that makes driving with your phone easier than ever. This car will pick up incoming calls for you so you do not even have to be distracted from the road for one second at all.

- Breanna K

Pros and cons of the Kia Soul 2018.

2018 Kia Soul

Problems were that it had to get a tire replaced and there was no back up camera on the car- we got one inserted for around $100. I thought new cars all had back up cameras. The lights do not turn on automatically. I have still to figure out how the lights turn on when you open the doors to the car. I love how smooth it runs. There is hardly any noise. I like that it drives like a smaller car, but you are up higher. Overall love the car.

- Jessica J

The Kia Soul is big on the inside with the small on the outside fuel efficiency.

2018 Kia Soul

The kia soul is compact but has enough space for my husband and I to take our two young kids (CAR SEATS) on small road trips with all of our bags in the back. It is great on gas and sits high enough up that I feel safer than when I'm in other sedans. My specific kia has had glue issues for the molding, but that is my only complaint. I've even synced my phone through the radio system to play music, make calls, and GPS.

- Brooke H

2018 Kia Soul review. Needed tinted windows.

2018 Kia Soul

I have leased my Kia Soul for six months now. I found it to be the best lease option for me at this time. Cheapest lease. Great gas mileage. Highway 30 plus miles to the gallon. In town about 26 miles to the gallon. I find the brakes could be a little faster at stopping. It is very roomy inside has a comfortable ride. Stereo speakers need upgrade. Computer options are many. Carplay etc. . . More than I use.

- Brenda M

The car is very easy to drive and has very good control.

2018 Kia Soul +

The only issue I find with the car is the way in which it is speeds up. I do not like the noise it makes when speeding up. Another issue I have with the vehicle is sometimes it is difficult to use the gear shift. Also it is really touchy so people sitting in the passenger seat need to be careful go to hit it over when the driver in operating the vehicle. Other than those slight issues I love the vehicle.

- Chloe S

The disco lights in the Kia makes you feel like you're at a good party.

2018 Kia Soul Base

The Soul looks like a small vehicle but it's very roomy on the inside. It comfortably seats five people. This vehicle reminds me of a small SUV. When you are in the vehicle you are sitting up high. I live in the rurals and going down dirt roads is usual for me to do. With the Kia I'm comfortable knowing that it's not a low vehicle and it handles well whether I'm on the highway or on a rural road.

- Ingrid S

The bells and whistles Soul.

2018 Kia Soul

The Soul has great gas mileage. It has three different setting for the engine performance: eco. Sport and regular, for use depending on your need. The Soul also has a backup camera and lots of other bells and whistles. The one thing that I do not like about the Soul is the manual. It combines all of the Souls into one book and it is very difficult to figure out what accessories belong to your model.

- Judith R

The 2018 Kia Soul is a great sized family car.

2018 Kia Soul

I absolutely love my Kia Soul! There is plenty of room, definitely a lot more than you would think for the outside. The Kia Souls is a great first car for young drivers, it is easy to park, backup, and drives good in the rain. The base model does not come with a spare tire, but I did get the roadside assistance when I bought the car and it is great! Especially if you lock your keys in the car often!

- Aaron O

It's a TARDIS: bigger on the inside

2018 Kia Soul Base

It's super comfy. Super tech featured that's easy to use. Great gas mileage. Great warranty. Smooth ride. Stands out because it's bright green. Great safety features so I feel supported. The only issue I've had is the navigation UVO. It sometimes just turns off to a dark screen. That can get annoying. If it doesn't shut down it's usually just blank and I can't control from the touch screen

- Gen J

Bang for buck; it's a car and a truck.

2018 Kia Soul +

I like how spacious the interior of the vehicle is. I also appreciate the rear camera function. The vehicle also shifts between three driving modes: Economy, sport, and regular. I change it depending on where I am driving (in city vs highway). The headlights have an auto feature that allows it to adjust to light. The vehicle also has Bluetooth capabilities. That is a major plus.

- Richard S

Great crossover vehicle, very safe.

2018 Kia Soul Base

The vehicle is very safe with multiple airbags and is great on gas. We lay down the back seats so we have more room to put groceries, plants or even let our dogs have more room. The 10 year warranty is awesome and is included in the price. This vehicle from the outside does not look like it has a lot of room but when you are inside you can tell the and see the difference.

- April P

Safe and Reliable Kia Soul

2018 Kia Soul Base

My Kia Soul gets me safely where I need to go for work. Having to drive in a big city, this car does the job and keeps up with the high speed of traffic. It's very reliable for me, and keeps me comfortable. There are several safety features to prevent theft of the vehicle. While it is a smaller car, it sits higher up than other cars and isn't as low to the ground.

- Sarah B

Gas mileage is ridiculously amazing

2018 Kia Soul Base

Steering wheel is comfy, I like the console gear shift. The heads on the seats don't push my neck down so it's very nice, also great back support too. Speakers for both music and Bluetooth functions are also very crisp and clear. I love the underneath trunk storage thingy with separators. It's so nifty when you don't want to have your winter stuff all over.

- Veronica S

No spare tire came with it.

2018 Kia Soul

Cannot clean the windows, even in a car wash. No way to play music except the radio. So far it is dependable. Lots of tire problems. No back window defrost. The hatch back area is too small. The worst is no spare tire in new cars. I have only had it 10 months and am now on my 3rd flat (losing air) the other 2 flats were caused by hole in sides of tires.

- Jan M

The Kia soul is small and easy to parallel park.

2018 Kia Soul EV

Seat is regular allowing comfort and good visibility. Start button is handy. Door locking system is good allowing easy open with a touch of exterior button as well as an override if spare key is in the car. The safety feature of blinking lights and beeps with side view mirrors for safe lane changing is a serious plus. The back up camera is excellent

- Henry P

The perfect car for me! I love the puddle lights.

2018 Kia Soul EV

Love the car! The price was very reasonable and it had all of my required features. It is easy to drive has great visibility and so easy to park in even the most awkward parking lots. It is very easy for my parents to get in and out of. The gas mileage is super. My husband is also enjoying the car so much that he is considered one for himself soon.

- Amy H

Best compact on the market!

2018 Kia Soul Base

I love my soul its compact hut yet so room my big husband and soul can ride and drive very comfortable in it! Gas economy is amazing and it is SO FUN to drive! The different drive modes to choose from are super handy while traveling or commuting. I would DEFINITELY buy another soul no doubt. I'm just not ready to give my current one up yet.

- Jessica P

Small in appearance, but roomy and economical.

2018 Kia Soul

We are enjoying this small car. It is roomy inside and sporty in appearance. The gas mileage is 3 times better than our previous, larger vehicle. We do have full coverage warranty on the vehicle, and that gives us peace of mind, especially in light of my retirement. We have room in the back for groceries, luggage or whatever we need. Love it.

- Judy C

It maneuvers well. It is roomy and has plenty of cargo space.

2018 Kia Soul Base

I haven't had any problems until I left the keys in the ignition in the on position all weekend. The battery was completely drained and it took 3 hours to charge it up. Other than my own foolish mistake, I have had no problems with my vehicle. I would love it if it got better gas mileage. Currently, I am only getting about 25 miles a gallon.

- Sheryl W

The 2018 Kia Soul is cute and sporty.

2018 Kia Soul

I absolutely love my car. Even though it appears to be small it is very spacious inside. I can zoom in and out of spaces with incredible precision. It was reasonably priced and obtaining financing was a breeze. I find it to be cute and trendy. The 2018 Kia Soul was a brilliant choice on my part because it is easy on gas and easy on the eyes.

- Jennifer C

Amazing gas mileage and handles very well

2018 Kia Soul +

I have had no problems at all with my Kia. I love it and it gets amazing gas mileage. I have drove to Disney World twice from Nebraska, which is 24 hours, and the car was great. It was spacious enough for my teen son in the backseat. I really enjoy the backup cam. I also added the sound system package to my car and it is fabulous.

- Samantha J

Performance plus style is what the Kia Soul is all about.

2018 Kia Soul

This is my 2nd Kia Soul and I am impressed with the way it handles the road. The cars performance is surprising based on the fact that it is only 4 cylinders. The 6 speed transmission allows for it to have great takeoff without bogging down. The smaller size makes the car easy to park, but tall enough to see around other vehicles.

- Kathy D

The features of the 2018 Kia Soul is amazing.

2018 Kia Soul

The 2018 Kia Soul is a super fun and very roomy for passengers but not much room in the trunk. It comes with lots of features and has great gas mileage. The down sides are not enough engine options and manual transmission is rare. There could also be a spare included with the price and extra for the tire repair kit in my opinion.

- Charles M

The dashboard is so nice. It is different in a way because it lights up green.

2018 Kia Soul

My car is comfortable. It is small, fits me perfect. It has Bluetooth, navigation. I can play the radio or connect my phone with Pandora. It rides smooth. I like it because it is new and reliable. The color is black but it has sparkles in the paint. I love the way it shines. I also like the mats which has Soul written on them.

- Pamela P

Apple carplay is a great thing to have

2018 Kia Soul Base

I do enjoy my car very much the only issue I've really had is speeding up as I take the highway to work almost every day I find it difficult to speed up. The features in the car are amazing my car includes apple carplay which comes in handy when I am traveling long distances it will display the map on my screen in the middle.

- Madison R

Overall, Kia Soul is a good car for the money.

2018 Kia Soul

Energy efficient, comfortable and easy to drive. Ride is not as smooth as I would like. And, poor pickup. Trunk is not very large. Dashboard is consumer friendly. Many electronic features. Safety devices are plentiful. Fabric quality on the seats is not very good. It is not scotch guarded. Stains on seats are hard to remove.

- Helen V

Spacious with great features.

2018 Kia Soul

I have not experienced any issues since purchasing my vehicle. It is very spacious for my girls and I. The trunk is not means for lots of luggage not a big stroller. The vehicle I had came with a tire repair kit and not a spare. It is very comfortable and has been reliable so far. I get about 409 miles on a full tank of gas.

- Shay S

Kia Soul ROCKS! It is the best vehicle in its class! Highly Satisfied.

2018 Kia Soul

This vehicle is the best in its class and best for the price. It drives smoothly is compact but gives tons of interior space. The trunk is a bit small so you can't load up but there are roof racks available as an option. The Kia Soul also comes with great features in the base model that are usually in more expensive models.

- bryan g

The paint color is called Alien Green.

2018 Kia Soul Base

Have had this car for 10 months and have had one situation. At 2000 miles, during a holiday, my check engine light came on. Stopped at a retail auto store and they believed I would be OK in making the trip. Dealership said there was a 'software update' that needed to be done. Confidence was shaken a little at that point.

- Brenda J

The Kia soul is a fun car to drive!

2018 Kia Soul Base

The Kia soul is a fun car to drive. The gas mileage in both city and on the highway is very good. The air conditioning works great. The stereo system is very good. Cruise control is easy to use. Functions are easy to adjust using the buttons on the steering wheel. Bluetooth works great. I really enjoy driving my Kia soul.

- Julie M

It is very roomy and comfy inside.

2018 Kia Soul

It is a great car. It looks small. The back seat has more space than any other car we tried out. Kia gets great gas mileage. The trunk is a little smaller than I am used to. I even got a great deal on it. don't be afraid to leave when they give you an offer. They usually come back and lower it. If you are willing to wait.

- Elizabeth T

The best most comfortable car

2018 Kia Soul Base

My Kia is extremely comfortable to drive. It's very quiet, cozy, cool looking. Gets great gas mileage. The stereo sounds amazing. I rented one a couple of years ago and knew when I was ready to buy this is the car I wanted. It has an amazing amount of storage space and can hold a lot of purchases by putting the seats down

- Connie S

Kia Soul is a good commuter vehicle,

2018 Kia Soul

I love the great mileage, it gets 33 mpg around town, but it is a small car. It is good for driving around town and maybe for a trip less than 2 hours, but not comfortable enough for long trips. Because it is small there is not a great deal of storage. I am basically happy with it as far as owning an economical vehicle.

- Linda L

This car is perfect for a family wanting to save and have comfort.

2018 Kia Soul EV

I save on gas in the drive to work is very comfortable. The interior of the car is wide enough for me since I'm tall. I can fit my whole family of five in the car without any problem. The car handles very smoothly on the road. I enjoy the modern radio and I'm able to listen my iPhone music and audiobooks, etc.

- Jorge A

Fun, cute, and economical car.

2018 Kia Soul Base

The Kia soul is fun to drive and is a cute looking car. It gets great gas mileage and is so comfortable to ride in. It's easy and quick to get around town, in and out of parking spaces and is not too small inside for 4 average sized adults. There is plenty of room in the back for a weekly grocery shopping trip.

- Angie K

My Kia will go very fast it has a turbo and people are really surprised.

2018 Kia Soul

Rides nice, and it us easy to drive, has plenty of room, tells you when you need to get the oil change and if it needs any type of service, the radio and speakers are great with lots of options the only bad thing is there is no light in the very back when you open the hatchback and the cover is kind of cheap.

- Amy S

Sleek, sportish, and full of Soul!

Family Car- Great Mileage

2018 Kia Soul Base

Car is very reliable and roomy. I love that the music continues to play in the backseat when the GPS is talking in the front. It has excellent gas mileage and is easy to fill up the tank. I haven't had any problems or recalls since purchasing the vehicle and use it to go to work and travel to see family.

- Britney J

Overall, the Kia Soul + is a very reliable car.

2018 Kia Soul +

I love my Kia Soul +. The number one thing I like the most is how well it handles. It's very easy to drive and has good gas mileage. One criticism I have is that the trunk space is extremely small. However, there is the option to lower the back seat to have more room. Other than that, it's a great car.

- Jennifer B

Kia Soul. Better without kids

2018 Kia Soul +

Reliable car with a quiet ride. Limited storage space and the brakes are very sensitive, especially in the rain. Car is definitely only able to accommodate one infant with their car seat and stroller. More than 3 people becomes very cramped. We do love the phone mirroring option for hands free driving.

- Kelsey P

Kia Soul is a sporty car with lots of Soul.

2018 Kia Soul

I think it is great little car with surprisingly lots of seating, 5 comfortable. It is great on gas I get about 375 miles per plus full gas tank. One thing that is bothersome is the tire pressure light came on after 2 months. It drives smooth and can pick up speed. It has optional manual shift avail.

- Debbie W

Kia soul + is a great choice for a compact car that feels much bigger.

2018 Kia Soul +

I love my Kia soul +. It is very roomy on the inside and has some amazing features like the console that connects to my phone so I can use my GPS or listen to podcasts. It is really a great car and has not let me down after driving it up and down the east coast multiple times on different trips.

- Natalie D

Third Kia and loving it!!

2018 Kia Soul Base

I love the room I have. My son is a new driver and he loves how it drives. My only problem is that, when slowing down at 15-10 mph. The car jerks. I am still trying to figure that out. Overall I love my Kia. This is my 3rd one. The trunk is small. But I have an option of a roof rack, if I want.

- Angel S

Great car and features, but not much room

2018 Kia Soul Base

This is a great car! It is fun to drive and it keeps my family safe. It not a very big car and that is only downside that I have with it. I wish the trunk and backseat were bigger. The backseat does not fit car seats very well. Other than that is a great reliable car. I can always count on it.

- Madison P

Everyone should own a Kia Soul

2018 Kia Soul Base

It is a great roundabout car in town. Not really comfortable on long trips. Has lots of leg room in back seat and trunk space. Wonderful on gas. Very reliable. A lot of fun to drive. Have to watch your speed because it seems to be going slow but when you look at the speed its not slow at all

- Charlotte J

Kia Soul+ a small car bursting with BIG design inside and out.

2018 Kia Soul +

Love my Kia soul. Nice roomy and all the features I need. Smooth ride, great mileage. Adore my Kia! Radio sound is great. Compact but spacious enough for me. I highly recommend especially if you like small cars. Oh and the safety rate on these are awesome. Just can't beat it all way around

- Jill T

I am in love my 2018 Kia Soul!

2018 Kia Soul Base

I really love my 2018 Kia Soul. It has just enough space for my family. I always tell people that it looks small on the outside but it is much more roomy on the inside. I will say that the trunk is smaller than I like but the seats do lay down and that is very helpful for me and my family.

- Katie P

Like how I can plug in my iPod to my radio. Seat warmers come in handy.

2018 Kia Soul +

My vehicle is very reliable. It does very well on gas. I often have to fuel maybe twice a week. Great sound system. Wish I had more trunk room. However, vehicle makes up for it in passenger space. Automatic windows. Came with an automatic 5 year protection plan. Sunroof. Tinted windows

- Sal B

Never going to steal my vehicle

2018 Kia Soul Base

The car is very comfortable and roomy. It doesn't have much power to it however since the engine is small. Fits my 2 year olds car seat very well. It gets great gas mileage. Bought new in 2018 and has been very reliable. Features power windows, CarPlay, USB hookups, anti theft system.

- Amber B

The advantages of the 2018 Kia soul.

2018 Kia Soul Base

It is the basic model it gets me where I want to go. My father has a hard time getting in some vehicles but the soul is easy for him to get into. It has an eco speed and sport for the Hwy that works fairly well and a decent sound system. It has phone connection for hands off calling.

- Joseph B

Kia Soul-a great city car.

2018 Kia Soul

Very comfortable car. Suitable for city trips and short travels. Quite large trunk for the type of car. It has very comfortable interiors also for passengers. Good quality finishes. Aesthetically it is not so attractive but it is a good compromise for those looking for a city car.

- Giulia L

The car is not low to the ground easy to get in and out of.

2018 Kia Soul

I have my car I have only had it five months but it gets good gas mileage it is a little car but it is very roomy on the inside it has hidden storage that I love. It is a lot higher off the ground and most cars it is size. It is a lot easier to get in and out of for older people.

- Vicki I

My vehicle is basic and not really anything to get to excited about

2018 Kia Soul Base

The base Kia Soul doesn't have an problems. Performance like the way it drives is great. The soul is also very reliable and super comfortable. The only complaint I have is the base model has no features and no car play. And the base model is only comes in like 5 different colors

- Jacob A

The car is easy to drive and a great family car.

2018 Kia Soul +

I love the way the car is so easy to drive, very few if any blind spots. Great in the city or on the highway. Good gas mileage. Handles really well on curvy roads, just an overall great choice on my part. Can fold seats down and load it up with lots of items, perfect family car.

- Billie C

Very spacious even though it is a compact.

2018 Kia Soul Base

I really enjoy my Kia Soul. It is comfortable and reliable. I really enjoy the sound system and the spaciousness of my little car. I can fit 5 people in it comfortably and I still have enough space in the trunk area for groceries or luggage. It is a great car for the price.

If you're looking to buy this car, then buy it. It's amazing.

2018 Kia Soul Base

It's really fun to drive, the performance it great, and the driving and handling is excellent. The reliability is ever so high if you're looking to buy this vehicle. Only downside is there's not enough storage space, that's my only issue. Other then that it's a great vehicle.

- Christian J

No horse power. Makes a lot of noise when started. Remote key is loose.

2018 Kia Soul EV

I bought the car brand new about three months ago. The car does not run like a brand new car. It makes a lot of noise when you start it. Does not have any horsepower. The key is very loose like it going to come off the remote. I would not recommend this vehicle for purchase.

- Christy B

Cute affordable and stylish car.

2018 Kia Soul

I love how roomy and comfortable it is. It does not have great initial pick up. I love the alien green color. It feels like an SUV vehicle. Great gas mileage. Wonderful free oil changes at dealership. The paint easily chips if bumped slightly. Easy to handle. Runs smoothly.

- Constance O

A fun vehicle to drive with good gas mileage. All at a great price.

2018 Kia Soul

The Kia Soul is a fun car to drive. It handles well and has a great pick up. Cannot complain about the mileage either. I have had this vehicle for 3 months now and on the last tank of gas I got 31 mpg. My friend owns a later model and I liked hers so much I got one myself.

- Debbie G

It's even better than you think in the inside and under the hood

2018 Kia Soul

It's exactly what I wanted, from color, features and style. With the seats down in back it has plenty of storage, it comfy for four adult passengers including driver. The power system if hardy and gas mileage good. Plenty of safety features and an excellent crash rating.

- tSquare S

Cute and small but it does its job.

2018 Kia Soul Base

I have a 2018 Kia Soul. I think my car is average it's a bit small for a party of four and I am thinking of switching cars. I liked it at first but now I think it's small. it's good with parking you are able to park in small spaces were bigger cars aren't able to fit in.

- Mariana S

- Patty N

Kia Soul has Soul. Great style will never be mistaken for other vehicles.

2018 Kia Soul

This is my 2nd Kia Soul and I like their safety ratings. Handles highways quite well and with great pickup. Good cargo space. Mileage is comparable to most other vehicles. Height of the Soul allows me to see around other cars and the smaller size makes it easy to park.

- Kathleen D

High feature, low trim price.

2018 Kia Soul

Has high end features at an affordable price, apple carplay comes standard. I feel like I do not have a blind spot in this vehicle due to the size. I love the safety rating, and features. The backseat is a good size to fit 2 car seats, it has a really good turn radius.

- Haley H

I love the inner glow lights that we can personalized.

2018 Kia Soul

It is a downgrade from our first car so it is not as high tech but it is still nice. I like the rear camera and satellite radio with stations I have never listened to before. It has inner glow lights that changes color which is a nice touch and spacious for it is size.

- Madison T

Great car and easy to use around town

2018 Kia Soul Base

I love driving my 2018 Kia Soul. The engine is very quiet, it accelerates quickly and is easy to use. The navigation system is very helpful when driving around town. When the back seats are folded down, the trunk space is large enough to fit both of my dogs plus more!

- Cassie H

Lovely Vehicle, meets my needs

2018 Kia Soul Base

So far I love the Kia Soul. It's very spacious, a compact car but still gives me the feel of an SUV. Just went camping with my 2 girls, everything fit perfect. Love how spacious the trunk is. Good on gas mileage. I do wish it had a CD radio but I love the Bluetooth.

- Johanna T

I call it the Rising Sun, because it symbolized the best year ever!

This car is good on gas and can race anyone down 290.

This car is fast efficient and good on gas! Basic features are beyond satisfactory. Auxiliary port is available as well as Bluetooth and iPod connections for your music. The back seat is roomy and the rear seats let down in case of traveling. You will love this car

- Ebony H

Kia Soul- sporty even for the older crowd.

2018 Kia Soul

Great gas mileage! Very roomy. With the back seats folded down can haul like a small SUV. Even though a base model, just wish it came standard with daytime running lights and a backup camera. The three different style drive modes are excellent. I would recommend.

- Lara W

Great mpg; average appearance.

2018 Kia Soul Base

I like the gas mileage both on the highway and around town. I do not care for the look off the car exterior. I do not like the boxy appearance. I only bought this because I was desperate to get out from under a lemon of a Sorrento. It needs a bit more power also.

- Erica G

Love my Kia Soul 2018 !!!!

2018 Kia Soul

Kia Soul has become our go to vehicle of choice ever since the purchase of our first one in 2012. The current one has a few nice options like a panoramic sunroof and heated seats and steering wheel. The sound system and backup camera are pretty nice options also.

- Deb K

It is both fun and reliable - with a body style that is cute and easy to drive.

2018 Kia Soul

Love the sportiness, it's cute. The interior is roomy even for a small car. The sound system is just what I need. It drives well - not a lot of power, but handles the L.A. freeways just right. Comfortable interior. Good reputation and reviews for make (Kia)

- Sheryl C

I love my 2018 Kia Soul!!

2018 Kia Soul +

My 2018 Kia Soul is the best. The fuel mileage is around 30 MPG. It is very spacious despite being small SUV. I have plenty of storage and room to haul friends around. I love the screen and use it for GPS all the time. The in car calling system is the best too.

- Jan S

This little car gets between 36 and 38 miles per gallon. I think that is one of the more important things about this vehicle

2018 Kia Soul

First of all it's the neatest little car I've ever driven. Secondly it gets good gas mileage, it's got a lot of things in that little car that come in a big car it's got navigation control power windows. And there is nothing I dislike about this little vehicle.

- Jon B

Satisfied customer. This is the second one we have owned.

2018 Kia Soul

Best buy for the money! Good gas mileage. 4 cyl. Good looking vehicle! Hatchback. Clean and classic styling. Good handling. No vehicle problems. This is the second Kia Soul we have owned. Comfortable seating with middle armrest/storage. Wish it had CD player.

- Juan R

Review of Kia Soul, is it for you or not?

2018 Kia Soul Base

Auto connections mess up frequently. The trunk space is very small. The back seats are a decent size. Can fit a small car seat okay. The Kia Soul is pretty good in gas if you keep it in eco mode. The ride is not too bumpy. For the most part it is a good car

- Kimberly C

Why the Kia Soul is the best car for dogs

2018 Kia Soul Base

Fun car! Tons of cargo space and is one of the best cars for having a dog or two. Sound quality of the speakers is awesome as you can blast music at full volume without needing to scream to the other people inside your vehicle. This car drives like a dream.

- John S

Turbo 4 door sporty Soul.

2018 Kia Soul !

This car is very reliable and extremely comfortable. This is a small car but it has a lot of room inside for everyone in our family to sit comfortably and there is plenty of legroom as well. Also, it is cute and sporty with the turbo it moves very quickly.

- Yolanda A

Awesome little car for grandma.

2018 Kia Soul !

Small vehicle but good for a family.

2018 Kia Soul

The Kia Soul drives very well and I can fit both my children’s car seats and still feel like there is room. I love the Bluetooth features and charging stations. They only thing I am displeased with is the fact that there is not much room in the trunk.

- Thea W

It has great gas mileage.

2018 Kia Soul +

I absolutely love my car because I drive over 100 miles a day for work and it is completely and always reliable. The gas mileage is over the top great and it is so cute! If I could do it all over again, I'd definitely choose the Kia soul. It is perfect.

- Madison A

My Kia Soul 2018 Car Review

2018 Kia Soul

My Kia Soul is easy to get in and out of as it's higher up than most cars. Having arthritis that's essential. The only thing I wish they'd improve is making the seating a bit more cushiony. The seat is not uncomfortable however, it's not plush enough.
