We are always searching for the NON “MOM” vehicle, the Kia Soul definitely caught our interest. The 2012 Kia Soul had a very young and cool feeling that I might buy it for my teenager but trade often….. it’s conveniently compact, the price is right and could totally spend the day driving around with the family!!!
You can feel that the new, more powerful four-cylinder engine in the 2012 model makes this compact car a little quicker on the road and could keep up with some (reasonable) speed on the highway. Maneuvering a SUV can be challenging with parallel parking, twists and short stops but the KIA SOUL helped up well! The Soul comes with a standard 135-horsepower, 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine that gets an EPA-estimated 27/35 mpg city/highway. The Soul’s standard safety features are front-wheel drive, all-disc antilock brakes with brake assist, active front head restraints, an electronic stability system with traction control and six airbags, including side curtains for both rows. A backup camera is standard on the highest trim level, but available on the other trims.
