The shape of the Soul has a purpose: to offer drivers more cargo and passenger space despite a smaller, lightweight design. It performs well.

Early last month we started looking over everything that Kia introduced at the 2018 LA Auto Show late in November. The highlight was certainly the unveiling of the all-new 2020 Kia Soul, which we’re extremely excited about.

So, today, we thought we’d take a look at the exterior design of the subcompact hatchback sedan. (more…)

We’ve got incredible news… there’s going to be an all-new Kia Soul for the 2020 model year! The Kia lineup has been changing drastically over the past few years, starting out with the introduction of the Kia Niro Hybrid and really getting amped up with the release of the brand’s first sports car, the Kia Stinger.

Sometimes we like to just head over to the social media platform Instagram and browse through their endless images. Our favorite thing to do on Instagram is look up Kia hashtags, like #KiaSoul, and then find the best images we can. A few weeks ago, we did this with the Stinger and put a few of our top picks into a gallery for you, so we thought we’d do that again this week with that very hashtag – #KiaSoul. We hope you enjoy them as much as we did! (more…)

As vehicles become available, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety puts them through their battery of tests to determine just how safe they are. The safety ratings that come as a result of these tests are some of the most highly regarded by consumers on the entire market. If a vehicle gets a bad score from the IIHS, you should probably steer clear. Likewise, if a vehicle achieves an impressive score, that’s a vehicle you should consider. Furthermore, if a specific brand manages to stack up more of these impressive ratings than any other brand, you should simply look at that brand in general. This is why we’re so pleased to inform you that eight, yes eight, Kia models have earned either the 2018 Top Safety Pick or, the only thing that’s higher, a 2018 Top Safety Pick+ rating from the IIHS.

But which models earned the designation? The 2018 Kia Soul & 2018 Kia Sportage. (more…)
