A clever combination of compact agility and generous interior space, the Kia Soul is a solid choice for regular commuters or drivers who are after an affordable family vehicle. It’s more fuel-efficient and smaller than standard SUVs and comes in several model options, like the Kia Soul Electric and Kia Soul Turbo. Some drivers have noted the lack of a Kia Soul with all-wheel drive, but this sturdy crossover still stands out compared to most of its competition thanks to its great value and intelligent interior design. Expect to find technology add-ons in recent models for a more entertaining ride.
