Love My Lil Soul

by Kari889 from Chino Hills, CA | February 17, 2021

Just bought this vehicle brand new. I’ve upgraded from a 2017 Kia Forte LX, which was a great car regardless of being the base trim. What the Forte really did was completely change my perceptions about the Kia brand. It was embarrassing to even think of owning a Kia car twenty years ago. Fast forward to present day, Kia is hashing out some really great car outside of the hiccups they’ve had with some engines (cough, cough, the Optima). While there is no perfect car brand, Kia is making significant progress. In regards to the 2021 Kia Soul GT-Line, they’ve once again made these boxy car stylish and desirable. Not only is the car comfortable and roomy on the inside, it also provides a smooth ride. It also has some great safety features alongside great versatile utility that some competitors just aren’t offering. I’m extremely happy with my purchase and look forward to the expected reliability from this kindred Soul.

My 4th soul ,tells it all.

Love This Car!

by MaryK from Brunswick | February 01, 2021

I love this car. It handles well, is beautiful in design and is priced affordably. The windows provide good visibility and the bottm of the car doesn't scrape on curbs when you park. I would have liked some extra tech features but am pretty satisfied with what I chose.
