We're behind the wheel of the all-new third generation Kia Soul on our full tour and review of this subcompact crossover.
10 years ago Kia launched their first Soul, a square subcompact crossover in a market with the Scion xB and Nissan Cube. Fast-forward 11 model years and the Kia Soul is the only car left in this niche segment. We go in-depth with their 3rd generation 2020 Kia Soul EX Limited.
Our full tour and review of the 2020 Soul EX covers everything you need to know about this vehicle, including the exterior design changes. We go over the features like full LED headlights, heated mirrors, adaptive cruise control, blind spot monitoring, lane keep assist, backup camera, rear cross traffic alert, and smart key access.
Inside we discuss the new 10.25" infotainment system and 8" colour head-up display, along with the leather seating with front heat and ventilation and rear outboard heat. The Soul EX Limited also has a heated steering wheel, 10 speaker Harman/Kardon audio system, dual zone automatic climate control, LED interior lighting, and sound activated mood lighting.
We take the 2.0L Nu engine on a comprehensive road test to talk about how this vehicle performs and handles on the road, including our thoughts on it during daily driving duties. We go over the fuel economy we recorded during our time with the Soul, and what we liked and disliked about this sub-$30,000 car.
