Kia Has Some Soul
Published June 27, 2012
There are some people who want a basic car that can get them from point A to point B. Then there are some who want personality in their ride. The 2012 Kia Soul is for those who want the best of both. While practical, it is still a car with loads of personality.
The 2012 Kia Soul has been my ride for quite a few months now and I can honestly say I am one happy customer. On the practical side, it gets great gas mileage with about 27-28 mpg in the city and around 30 mpg on the highway. The backseat is larger than other cars in its price range and the storage available is way better than a sedan. For those who love gadgets, there is the Bluetooth, USB port, and Infinity audio system.
On the personality side, there is a lot to love. My car came with the audio upgrade package, which includes a rear camera display, center channel speaker, and speaker lights. The speaker lights make the car fun to drive at night. You can change the colors and color intensity. The word “Soul” on the seat trim is also a glow in the dark material, which is really cool. The design of the car is also much different than other cars with its boxy yet curvy exterior.
Now some are not impressed with the outward appearance of the 2012 Kia Soul. To me personally, that is what makes the car so much fun. I am not interested in driving a car that everyone else has. My car gets noticed and I get a ton of compliments on it.
At a retail price of less than $20,000 the 2012 Kia Soul is hard to beat. The options available, style, and practicality of the vehicle makes it a great choice. I have spent way more on a car before and have not been nearly as impressed as I am with my Kia Soul. You may not agree with me, but then you probably haven’t had the pleasure of riding in one.
