2015 Kia Soul Features & Design

Kia uses its clever and wildly popular hamster ad campaign to demonstrate the transformation of both the new Soul and the hamsters. The newly refined hamsters have lost quite a bit of weight and have a sleek, modern, hipster boy-band appeal, as does the new Soul. While the Soul retains its iconic square shape with angular side rear windows, the sharp corners have been smoothed out just a tad, as have most of the lines throughout the car.

Conclusions

Lounge models are at the top of the line, and they include power heated leather front seats, driver lumbar adjustment, split-folding rear seat backs with fore-aft adjustment (and recline/tumble), fog lamps, and a dual-zone climate control system. Kia Soul models includes four-wheel antilock disc brakes, stability and traction control, side curtain airbags and active front head restraints. The FIAT 500 can make tight turns, the braking ability is great for this class of vehicle, but the Soul does not brake as well as the 500.
