Kia Soul Kia Soul
Soul is not the first year on our market, but it still attracts increased attention - people stare at the unusual “box”! The dapper, white-painted enamel alloy wheels shod with 225 / 45R18 tires are simply huge for a compact class car!
Their weight is decent. Maybe that's why the car jumps so unevenly on bumps, shaking my soul out of me? The situation is aggravated by the too loud work of the pendants - sometimes you even want to insert ear plugs.
But there are no complaints about controllability: the car is held firmly in corners and, despite its high body, does not annoy with deep banks. The Soul chassis does not resist active driving, which can not be said about the outdated 4-speed automatic. If you move gradually and measuredly, he conquers with soft and smooth work.
If you go with a twinkle, the situation changes: the box thinks for too long before changing gear. Switching to manual mode does not solve the problem - the transmission sometimes even with a modest 2500 rpm for a gasoline engine does not allow to go one step lower. Sorry, the 1.6-liter 124-strong “heart” is worthy of the best.
Updated Soul apparently has not changed. Only new door handles deserve mention. It is possible to identify a restyled car even under emergency braking - then the brake lights begin to blink nervously, reporting the following: attention - there is danger ahead!

All other innovations are concentrated inside. The most striking novelty (literally and figuratively) is clearly intended for young people - I'm talking about the flashing of different colors for the edging of the speakers built into the front doors.
