Full Review

The 2016 Kia Soul holds outward style and fuel-efficiency as its biggest assets, meaning it’s an incredibly attractive option for anyone looking for a stand-out hatchback. Though the overall vehicle lacks major updates, the vehicle maintains its boxed style and complements it with great fuel economy and a comfortable interior. The 2016 Kia Soul is thus a worthy competition and absolutely excels in powertrain options and interior comfort.

On the outside, the brand new Kia Soul keeps its boxed, squared edge exterior profile with a few more curves and creases than expected. The Tiger Nose grille is broader and more prevalent at the vehicle’s front end, with LED headlights to complement the redesign. Athletic, flared fenders and LED taillights further provide a modern edge to the revamped hatchback. Kia appreciatively offers this vehicle in a variety of colours, textures and designs for your ultimate satisfaction.

This years upgrade features slight improvements and modifications in order to enhance comfort and space for the modern driver. Evidenced throughout the interior core is a great appreciation for modern furnishings and attention to detail. Cloth or optional leather upholstery lines the interior cabin with soft-touch materials from the elbow up throughout most of the dash area. There’s also a panoramic sunroof, bolder steering wheel and a sportier gauge cluster to complement the new-age vibe. Speakers are elevated and actually take on more of a futuristic feel as Kia describes a “Flying Saucer” design as the main inspiration behind the audio and vent system.

For technology enthusiasts, the hatchback features an 8-inch UVO multi-media interface powered by Microsoft for precise control of navigation and entertainment systems. This system likewise features Bluetooth and smartphone capability, as well as climate and audio controls. There’s also a multi-function heated steering wheel and heated seats for improved comfort and convenience.

Under the hood, the new Kia Soul carries over two engines from the outgoing model, which boast great fuel economy and decent power for everyday driving. The base model runs on the fuel-efficient 1.6-litre four-cylinder engine that produces 130 horsepower and 118 pound-feet of torque on standard six-speed manual transmission. This unit is rated at 11.8 litres per 100 kilometres city and 9.4 litres per 100 kilometres highway. Higher trims run on the more powerful 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine that produces 164 horsepower and 151 pound-feet of torque with standard six-speed automatic transmission. This unit offers a fuel economy of 12.3 litres per 100 kilometres city and 9.1 litres per 100 kilometres highway. Standard safety features include anti-lock brakes, Brake Assist and electronic stability control, while a rear view camera is optional.

As it stands, the 2016 Kia Soul is an affordable hatchback that boasts immense comfort and outward style for the modern driver. If you’re looking to stand out and look great, this vehicle is a great choice.

Standard safety features include anti-lock brakes, Brake Assist and electronic stability control, while a rear view camera is optional.

Interiors and Special Features:

Just as we previously said, the interior of the 2016 Kia Soul will get a bump in terms of material quality and interior equipment level. Thanks to this, the base car will now get Bluetooth as well as USB connectivity which is a major plus for a car aimed at the younger generation. The seats will offer better lateral support while the instrument cluster is going to be a bit cleaner. The higher end models will now get satellite navigation and leather upholstery as standard while the automatic parking system is going to become available on select models.

Safety features:

All models include a total of six airbags, with dual front airbags, seat-mounted side bags, and full-length side curtain bags. It's also worth noting that even the base Soul includes superior four-wheel disc brakes, while many other inexpensive small cars include just drum brakes in back. Anti-lock braking, Brake Assist, and electronic stability control are all included, as is Hill-start Assist.
