2015 Kia Soul: Everything You Need To Know
The Kia Soul is one of the snazziest looking vehicles around, and if you like stand-out looks, it should definitely be at the top of your list.
In addition to its appealing, modern styling, the Kia Soul is packed with top-of-the-line features that you won’t find in any other vehicle with comparable pricing. U.S. News ranks it as one of the best, most affordable cars available.
You can design your Soul at one of the Kia dealerships in Miami to get the look and feel you want, putting a fresh, fun spin on everyday driving.
Don’t know a lot about the Soul? No worries. Here’s the low down on all the qualities that make it one of the best values you can get your hands on.
Looks with Attitude
With a smooth flow, defined curves, and thoughtful details, the 2015 Soul is the most refined version yet. For instance, the Soul’s body-colored door handles help to give it a sleek look.
Optional Xenon headlights and LED taillights lend to the vehicle’s striking appearance. And its signature wide-mouth grille and chrome trim also set it apart visually. Don’t be surprised if you see heads turning when you’re behind the wheel.
Plenty of Performance
The base model Kia Soul comes equipped with a 1.6-liter inline-4 that puts out 130 horsepower. It provides a smooth, capable, satisfying ride.
However, if you’re a bit of an enthusiast and you like your ride with some spice in it, you can opt for one of the two higher trim levels to get a 2.0-liter engine with 164 horsepower. Zip around and enjoy.
All trims come equipped with an Active Eco System which controls the engine, transmission, and air condition, helping you get the best fuel economy possible.
The Soul gets up to 31 miles per gallon, making it a smart investment in the long-term because you won’t be flying through tanks of fuel.
Most Inviting Interior Yet
The cabin of the 2015 Kia Soul is comprised of soft, high quality materials, giving it a notably upscale ambience. And if you really like to be spoiled, you can opt for add-ons like ventilated/heated seats with leather trim and an optional heated steering wheel.
All Soul’s come equipped with Remote Keyless Entry, and Push-Button Start is also an available option. Steering-wheel mounted controls with cruise control make this Kia feel incredibly user-friendly.
You can also choose to enhance your driving experience with chic extras like a panoramic sunroof or available LED mood lighting that responds to your audio. That doesn’t make the Soul a party-friendly place on the road, but it’s fun you can’t get on many other vehicles.
You can enjoy the sun shining in by day and LEDs changing color and intensity to match your songs by night. The Soul’s interior is tailored to give you a truly personalized ride.
The Tech You Want
The Soul comes with a number of tech features to make you smile. Bluetooth Hands-Free Connectivity, USB and auxiliary jacks, a 6-speaker audio system, and SiriusXM radio are all part of the package.
But if technology is really your thing, you want it all, you can also get the available Infotainment system with an 8-inch screen and UVO voice commands. In addition, a Rear-Camera Display, premium Infinity sound system, and a supervision meter cluster with a Thin Film Transistor color LCD display are all available as options.
So don’t hold back. You can outfit your Kia Soul’s cabin with all the features you love, and still pay far less than you would for similar models on the market.
Space that Lets You Be Creative
If you’re considering taking the Soul for a test drive, it’s probably because you like the flexibility and freedom you get with larger vehicles.
A cramped sedan can certainly turn a road trip from exciting to sour if there’s not enough room for everyone to get comfortable. And what about transporting cargo?
Luckily the Soul offers the perfect solution. There’s a spacious cabin for you and your friends to kick back in. And rear seat passengers even get a folding armrest with a cup holder.
The next time you need to help your buddy move, just change up the configuration. With a large cargo area and a 60/40 split-folding rear seat, the Soul provides lots of versatility.
Why confine yourself to a small space when you can have a roomy, adaptable vehicle at a reasonable price?
Safety Across the Board
While you can only get the latest in safety for top dollars in some vehicles, all Soul trims come with a comprehensive list of safety features. For starters, they have the latest in airbag protection, including full-length side curtain airbags.
Standard safeguards like Antilock Brakes, Stability Control, and Tire-Pressure Monitoring are all part of the package.
And you’ll find cutting-edge safety technology like Electronic Brake-Force Distribution, Hill Start Assist, Low Anchors an Tethers for Children (LATCH), and Front and Rear Crumple Zones.
The Soul received 5-stars, the highest overall safety rating possible, from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety also rated this Kia “Good” in every crash test category.
So if you’re looking for a vehicle that will give you peace of mind, the 2015 Soul is an excellent choice. It’s well-prepared to help prevent and mitigate collisions so that you and your passengers stay safe.
A Price You Won’t Believe
With all of that packed into one savvy vehicle, you’d expect to pay premium pricing at the dealership. But with the Kia Soul, that’s not the case.
Pricing starts at $15,100 and ranges up to $20,700 for the ! (Exclaim) trim. Consumer Guide calls the Soul _ **“a very compelling mix of personality and practicality.”_ **
Plus, so many of the Soul’s features come standard that you’ll even have money leftover from your budget to add on all the options you want. The great thing about the Kia Soul is that there’s one to match any personality.
