The Kia Soul is a small and fashionable hatchback that’s known, among other things, for its efficient use of space and money, its comfort, and its smooth ride. Sometimes it feels more like a small boxy wagon than a five-door. It doesn’t try to be swoopy on the outside, while it displays a touch of sophistication on the inside, as the connectivity and infotainment systems hold their own against those in more expensive cars. In a nutshell, the Soul finds its own niche, which isn’t easy to do in that class.
The 2016 Soul is the third year of the second generation. There are no major changes for 2016.
The base engine is a 1.6-liter four cylinder making 130 horsepower and 118-pound-feet of torque, and it doesn’t feel like enough power with the optional automatic transmission, while the standard 6-speed manual pulls it better.
