With its unique style, spacious interior cabin and a long list of standard and available features, the 2018 Kia Soul is a sporty, fun car to drive. The distinct exterior appearance gives way to a sophisticated interior, chock full of features to enjoy.
Drive the roads of Urbandale and Clive like never before in the Kia Soul. To assist you throughout the car buying process, we have put together this 2018 Kia Soul review to discuss some of the important features offered in this compact SUV.
Kia Soul Interior and Cargo Space
The spacious rear and cargo areas let you customize the experience you want to have inside the cabin. You can conveniently transport passengers, carry home longer items from the store, or do both by folding down one or both seats! There’s even hidden storage to explore, as the floor of the cargo area can be flipped up for storing smaller items.
There’s space for five adults in the Kia Soul. The available 10-way power-adjustable driver’s seat with lumbar support allows drivers to adjust everything to their liking. And the 8-way power-adjustable front passenger seat provides anyone traveling along for the ride complete comfort. The available fully automatic temperature control is another convenience found in the Soul. The system cools or heats the cabin automatically, to maintain the selected temperature setting.
Standard and Available Tech Features
The base edition of the Soul comes with Bluetooth™ capability for making calls or listening to music, along with a USB port for device charging. The engaging UVO infotainment interface is available on higher trims, linked with either a 7-inch or 8-inch touchscreen. The UVO system integrates any compatible smartphone to track vehicle diagnostics, monitor driving habits and access roadside assistance technology if necessary.
To help see things you might not be able to pick up on by looking over your shoulder, there’s the rear-camera display. This available feature displays on the touchscreen what’s happening behind the vehicle. No reason to crane your neck. No reason to turn around and bend your body. Just follow the touchscreen as you back out of any driveway or parking space.
Kia Soul Safety
Kia Drive Wise, a full suite of available driver-assistance technologies, is designed to keep you alert and aware of what’s happening around the car. The autonomous emergency braking system monitors other cars and pedestrians in front of you. If the system thinks a crash may be imminent, the brakes will be automatically applied to help avoid a collision or mitigate one.
The available smart cruise control system is another outstanding safety feature, using radar to maintain a preset distance from the car in front. The Kia Soul will slow or accelerate automatically when appropriate.
