Just before my recent trip to L.A., I was already rocking the Hollywood lifestyle, by test driving the new, transformed 2014 Kia Soul!
Yeah – this one!
The new Kia Soul features a 2.0-liter, 4-cylinder engine, clean hip body lines, shorter height, and tight steering. The model I reviewed was totally tricked out inside, bringing the fun to an all new grown-up level.
The Kia Soul is inspired by music and you can clearly see it by the design. The new one of a kind speaker set up is powerful and kicking. I’m a firm believer that music relieves stress and enhances ones mood. Making this a very fun car to drive!

Just as the Kia vehicles I’ve previously driven, this one was super comfortable, and easy to drive. The drivers seat fit like a glove. I really enjoyed all of the up to-date features, and found myself missing the automatic climate control, double sun roof, and heated seats soon after my review was over. Not to mention the sound system. Having a teenage daughter, this was like a party on the road every-time we left the house. It was actually nice having her want to go out with mom for a change. I guess the Kia Soul made this mom cool. Well, for a week anyway.
Speaking of being a mom, how about trunk space, The Kia Soul has it, and lot’s of it!
The mom in me added the Kia Soul to our short list of vehicles to consider purchasing because of it’s great safety features and amazing gas millage (I went the entire week without filling up). The girl in me added it because it’s fun, and like I said in the beginning of this post – driving the Kia Soul is totally rocking!
The Kia Soul starts at $18,200, contact your local Kia dealer for details.
