What You Will Like

The affordable Soul remains one of best values on the market, priced in line with compact sedans, and it is very well-equipped and quite fuel-efficient. With the Soul's tiny parking footprint, it's easy to maneuver and park, packing impressive interior space thanks to the boxy profile. Adults can fit comfortably in the back seat, which isn't the case with most other vehicles this size.

Safety features also get a boost in the Soul; the stronger structure has already been proven with Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) Top Safety Pick status plus a federal 5-star overall rating.

Introduction

The boxy Kia Soul hatchback is in the fifth year of its second generation. There are only minor changes for 2019, in advance of a new version coming for 2020.

The Soul packs a remarkable amount of cargo space, as much as some crossovers, into its compact hatchback body. It’s 163.0 inches long, with a 101.2-inch wheelbase.

The base Soul uses a 1.6-liter inline-4 that makes 130 horsepower, mated to a 6-speed manual or 6-speed automatic.

The Soul Plus uses a 2.0-liter inline-4 that makes 161 horsepower, mated to a 6-speed automatic that upshifts often and early. Automatic emergency braking is available on the Plus.

The Soul Exclaim uses a 1.6-liter turbo-4 making 201 horsepower, mated to a smooth 7-speed dual-clutch automatic manual transmission. After it gets past its turbo lag, the acceleration is brisk.

The EPA rates the base Soul at 25 mpg city, 30 highway, 27 combined with the 6-speed automatic, and virtually the same with the 6-speed manual.

The faster Soul Plus gets the same fuel economy, while the fastest Exclaim with the turbocharged engine gets the best mileage, 26/31/28 mpg. (There’s a battery-electric Soul EV, which is only sold in a few states.)

The NHTSA gives the Soul five stars overall in its crash tests, and the IIHS gives it all top Good scores and a Top Safety Pick designation. That’s quite an accomplishment for a compact car, a testament to quality engineering.

More optional safety equipment includes blind-spot monitors with rear cross-traffic alerts, lane-departure warnings, and forward-collision warnings.

Lineup

For about $17,500, the base Soul has power features, air conditioning, Bluetooth, satellite radio, a split-folding rear seat, and a 5.0-inch touchscreen. A convenience package adds the useful Uvo infotainment system, which runs on Android software and uses smartphone data to power its connected apps.

The Soul Plus for about $21,000 adds Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility and a larger 7.0-inch or 8.0-inch touchscreen, fog lights, and 17-inch wheels. Options include heated front and rear seats, cooled front seats, a sunroof, 18-inch wheels, and forward-collision warnings with automatic emergency braking.

The Soul Exclaim for $23,000 adds gloss trim inside and out, leather upholstery, and keyless ignition.

The warranty on the Soul as on all Kias is exceptional: Five years or 60,000 miles, with powertrain for 10 years or 100,000 miles.

Walkaround

The perky Soul still is fun to look at. Meaty sheetmetal is spread over sharp angles, and the roofline has motion to it, suggested by the slightly sweeping windshield pillars. The Plus and Exclaim benefit from their body-color bumpers and trim. You have to give it credit for having a shape and style that’s been around for a decade and still looks new. Kia scored a very tricky ace with the Soul.

Interior

Less outgoing than the exterior, the interior is rendered in nice finishes, pleasant shapes, and high-quality materials, including the soft trim on the dash and door panels. We like the stout steering wheel and racy gauges, and the center stack that’s canted toward the driver.

Packaging might be the Soul’s best aspect. The tall roof creates good head room, making the cabin feel spacious even with dark upholstery.

The comfort of the seats is okay, as the front seats are high and the instrument panel low. They’re firm enough but could use more leg support. There’s excellent head and legroom, although tall drivers might feel squeezed by the optional sunroof.

Two tall passengers fit well in the back, as there’s an amazing 39 inches of rear seat legroom, more than many mid-size crossovers. An armrest can be lowered to separate the two rear positions.

There’s 24.2 cubic feet behind the rear seat, which is also more than some crossovers. And with the rear seat folded, there’s 63 cubic feet of room. These are truly crossover numbers, not the kind of cargo space you usually see in a compact hatchback.

Driving Impressions

With a curb weight of about 3,000 pounds, the base Soul has just average acceleration. Its 1.6-liter engine makes 130 horsepower and 118 pound-feet of torque. With either a 6-speed manual or 6-speed automatic, it’s an engine that needs a constant foot on the gas to keep the pace.

The engine in the Plus is a non-turbo 2.0-liter inline-4 making 161 hp and 150 lb-ft of torque, mated to only a 6-speed automatic. It upshifts and downshifts quickly, and can be locked in manual so it only upshifts at redline. The Plus is the only model that can be optioned with automatic emergency braking.

The Exclaim is the closest thing to a Soul pocket rocket, with its turbocharged 1.6-liter engine making 201 horsepower and 195 pound-feet of torque, enough to create torque steer when you stand on the gas. But most of it goes away in Sport mode, which makes the steering heavier and more able to resist the sideways tug. The transmission in the Exclaim is a smooth 7-speed dual-clutch automatic.

The suspension in every Soul is right, with quality dampers having a lot of travel. The dampers deliver good control, confidence in corners, and isolation from small bumps. For having a short wheelbase, the ride isn’t harsh on choppy pavement.

Handling is responsive on a curvy road, especially in sport mode. It doesn’t feel like a tall box in the twisties, and the ride isn’t too busy.

Four-wheel disc brakes are standard, with brake assist and hill-start assist, even on the base model. They work well, easy to modulate for smooth, controlled braking.

Summary

The very affordable base Kia Soul, with the 6-speed manual, is a great value. It’s cool, zippy enough for town, has top crash scores, and vast cargo space. The Plus is an upgrade, quicker with its 2.0-liter engine and 6-speed automatic. The turbocharged Exclaim is the pocket rocket. All have unexpected rear legroom for passengers and great warranty coverage.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.

Options

This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.

 

Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
