With its funky styling and spunky four-cylinder power, the compact Kia Soul is aimed at mainstream economy-car shoppers who want something different. Indeed, the Kia hatchback is avant garde in its approach, boasting a swept-back exterior design with sporty angles and a neat cabin filled with distinctive shapes and vibrant colors. It gives Kia an injection of, well, soul to complement its well-earned reputation for competence and value. The Kia Soul shows that superminis don’t have to all look the same. Its chunky, boxy looks and optional bright paint colours and graphics make it stand out. The interior is impressively spacious and simply laid out, although some of the plastics are a bit scratchy and the seats don’t fold as easily as those in a Honda Jazz. The Soul doesn’t drive as well as it looks, either, with a firm ride making the Kia uncomfortable on longer journeys.
