2016 Kia Soul Buyer's Guide

If the name is “Soul” it’s got to be funky — right? When Kia brought the high-top tennis shoe-looking runabout to market back in 2008, the company was very coy about assigning a classification to the model. As a result, some people consider it a hatchback, others consider it a wagon, and still others are convinced the 2016 Kia Soul is a compact crossover SUV. Whatever you see when you look at it, one thing is clear—most people really like it. Indeed, the audience for the sporty little Kia ranges in age from 18 to 80 and a few numbers on either side of the two. There’s no question about it, the 2016 Kia Soul has definitely got soul. Even better, it’s also crazy affordable.

What makes it move?

Power for the 2016 Kia Soul Wagon comes from a selection of two different engines. The base Soul is equipped with a 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine capable of producing 130 horsepower and 118 ft-lbs of torque. A six-speed manual transmission with hill start assist is standard, while a six-speed automatic is optional. The Soul’s 2.0-liter inline four is good for 164 horsepower and 151 ft-lbs of torque. The only transmission offering for this engine is the six-speed automatic. All of the Kia Soul’s powertrains use front-wheel drive.

Why buy the 2016 Kia Soul?

Yes, we are definitely talking about a Kia product here, so you know the features list is long, deep, and representative of outstanding value. For the 2016 model year alloy wheels are standard across the entire range. A 4.3-inch touchscreen interface, satellite radio, and a rear view camera have found their way onto the Kia Soul’s standard features list. Two of the latest driver’s aids can be had with the 2016 Kia Souls as well; these are a Forward Collision Warning System and a Lane Departure Warning System—both of which are offered with the Soul for the first time this year. Other potentially unexpected touches: navigation, a panoramic sunroof, heated and ventilated driver and front passenger seats, and seat heaters for the outboard rear positions.
