Holding its position for a second year in a row, the 2018 KIA Soul ranks number one in the compact car category at U.S. News and World Report. What’s more, it is ranked number two in both the small car and hatchback car categories. The reviewers write that the car excels in so many areas. Last year the car earned Best Compact for the Money from the same automotive journalists.
The new year brings even more reasons to like the Soul. The 2018 model retains the Soul’s distinctive appearance. You can add an accent roof in black or red on certain models. Leading the segment, the 2018 KIA Soul has cargo space worthy of a crossover. Best of all, budget management is easier with its affordable price points.
The Soul offers three engine starting with its 130-horsepower engine. It has plenty of get-up-and-go. Stepping up, the Plus trim offers a more competitive driving experience with its 2-liter powertrain. This four-cylinder engine delivers 161 horsepower. Stepping up once again, a four-cylinder turbo offers 201 horsepower. Depending on the engine choice, shoppers can get a six-speed manual, six-speed automatic, or a seven-speed dual clutch automated manual transmission. With three modes, Flex Steer helps you match response to your needs. Ride quality and handling are improved by the rear gas shock absorbers.
Like its clever exterior, the Soul interior is innovative and interesting. The build allows for more headroom and legroom. Soft touch surfaces are one highlight of the higher quality materials in every cabin. Black and two-tone tricot fabrics are your first choices, but higher editions let you step up to a woven cloth upholstery or a rich leather. For an elegant touch, the leather-clad Exclaim models wear leatherette on the doors and dash. Piano black accents and satin chrome trim add a premium feel. Plus models offer racy orange accents. Conveniences include heated front seats and a handy cargo tray. The hold measures 24.2 cubic feet, similar to some small crossovers. Furthermore, if you fold the seats, you will find 61 cubic feet of space, more than some small crossovers.
The basic radio system may be all you need, but most models offer an audio screen with Bluetooth streaming audio. You choose from a five-inch, seven-inch, and eight-inch touchscreen. UVO apps are complemented by the many features you can access by using Apple CarPlay or Android Auto. This includes streaming navigation via Google Maps or Apple Maps. Navigation is built into the system with the largest touchscreen.
If you are focused on avoiding trouble, the 2018 Soul wants to help. KIA offers a forward collision warning system and a related autobrake. A reverse traffic alert is part of the blind spot detection system. Auto-leveling headlights provide a better view. Soul’s basic structure is designed to deflect force away from vulnerable occupants. Power heated mirrors and fog lights are among the car’s most important exterior safety aids. Parents will appreciate the LATCH attachments, the most effective way to secure a kid’s carseat. Soul drivers can utilize adaptive cruise control, which regulates speed in busy conditions.
