Overview of Kia Soul
Multi-purpose vehicles are a trend these days, with drivers looking to own a car that can be an all-in-one machine. There certainly is a downside to that, however, as most MPVs are bulky and eat up too much gas. There’s one of them however, that may beg to differ – introducing the Kia Soul – a mini MPV that’s pretty much like your usual multi-purpose wheeler, only smaller and certainly very classy.
Powered by a 142-horsepower 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine that teams with a 5-speed manual (or 4-speed automatic) transmission, this 4-door wagon is by no means just pure hype. While it may look smaller than its MPV competitors, the Soul has a relatively high power to weight ration. That means this little baby can pack a lot of power without being too heavy.
Stability is also one of the key areas the Soul can boast. Its width enables it to gain more stability and traction. It also has a speed sensitive power rack and pinion steering that helps the driver make maneuver the car with ease in slow speeds while at the same time giving him close control at high speeds.
Just as much as the Soul is classy on the outside, it really is comfortable within as well. There is a lot of room for passengers and cargo room. It is also fitted with a good set of seats coupled with a wonderful entertainment system which should make it a comfortable ride altogether.
The Kia Soul isn’t that expensive too, compared to other mini MPVs. And the deal does not end there. The Kia Soul too is a fuel saver with an average mileage of 27 miles per gallon. If that doesn’t seal the deal, then you have to be kidding yourself, or your soul.
