2013 Kia Soul | Review, Price, Interior, Exterior, Engine.The Kia Soul is a trendy five door “urban crossover vehicle” based on the Kia Rio. The styling, standard equipment, value price, and overall usefulness, all contribute to make the Soul very appealing, especially to the youth market.

With its bulldog nose, edgy roofline, and boxy, appliance-like tail, the Kia Soul brought a new attitude to small cars as well as more practicality and small-car spirit to small utility vehicles. Just one look inside and out is all it takes to see and understand why the Kia Soul has been a very popular small vehicle, far outselling other boxes like the Nissan Cube and Scion xB.

Understandably, the Soul has seen very few changes to its design or package. Last year the Soul became a little quicker and a little more fuel-efficient, thanks to revised powertrains, but it’s stuck to its formula in hitting the sweet spot for U.S. commuters looking for a second (or first) car with style, flexibility, and frugality. There’s still nothing else quite like it.

2013 Kia Soul Interior and Exterior :
2013 Kia Soul Interior and Exterior. – The Soul has a standout design and fashionable look inside and out, all for a price that’s about the same as less exciting small cars. So it’s all the more surprising that the Soul’s feature list has what it takes to woo shoppers seeking value as well. The Soul’s extensive equipment list includes the usual safety gear, and it’s been a Top Safety Pick award from the IIHS. Unfortunately a navigation system still can’t be had if you also opt for UVO, Kia’s voice activated control hub for phone and audio. But at about $20,000 for a well equipped Soul, this is still quite the deal for those who want a little wagon-like utility, but with the driving feel and fuel budget of a small car.

When it was first introduced for the 2010 model year, the Soul helped set a new style for Kia, and it remains today (after winning several design awards) a standout for its styling details and cohesive design. The urban-wagon look combines a bullnosed, somewhat rounded front end, wearing Kia’s new corporate theme between big, alert headlamps (LED-lit on the top model). The Soul’s flat roofline is probably its most memorable point, though; it starts high, and boomerangs down toward the rear end in a way that reminds us of European hatchbacks. Blacked-out pillars help give the look some extra snap, while flared wheel wells and a gently rising beltline keep it from looking too slab sided.

2013 Kia Soul Engine :
2013 Kia Soul Engine. – There are three variations of Soul’s to choose from: Base Soul, Soul +, and Soul!… The Base front wheel drive, five passenger Soul is powered by a 138-hp 1.6-liter four cylinder engine with power being delivered through a six-speed manual or optional six speed automatic transmission. All the other trims are powered by a 164-hp 2.0-liter four cylinder engine attached to a six speed manual or six speed automatic transmission. Standard safety features on all models include electronic stability control, traction control, four wheel anti lock disc brakes, six airbags, active front head restraints, and hill assist control, and a tire pressure monitoring system.

Steering does truly live up to that impression; the quick-ratio electric-assist system, combined with a 2800-pound curb weight and front-strut, rear torsion-beam suspension, makes the Soul handle more like a small, rather taut hatchback. The suspension isn’t always as buttoned-down as you might hope, though, and the ride can get a bit bouncy on some surfaces. Source: thecarconnection.com, autocarrelease.com.
