2017 Kia Soul
Part hatchback, part wagon, and part SUV, the 2017 Kia Soul offers a little something for everyone, even as it puts a unique spin on passenger comfort and versatility. The Soul's hip style is unlike anything else on the road and a new turbocharged engine this year debuts for an even peppier performance.

If you're looking for something out of the ordinary, you'll definitely findit in the 2017 Kia Soul. Outside, its distinctive shape is part wagon and part crossover, but it handles like a family sedan, smooth and responsive. Inside, its roomy cabin delivers a wealth of head and leg room, so passengers of all shapes and sizes can kick it in comfort. Front-seat cushioning is supportive, making long highway rides or time spent in the carpool line breeze by. The Soul's cargo hold offers serious space with 19 cubic feet behind the rear seats, from floor to ceiling. Flip those rear seats down for up to 61 cubic feet of maximum space, which gives you enough room for gear-heavy hobbies like skiing and scuba diving.
The 2017 Kia Soul is the most tech-savvy model yet. The Soul's UVO infotainment interface is the perfect place to start. Its crisp central touchscreen is your hub for everything from music to seat heaters. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity display oft-used smartphone apps, like iMessage and Google Maps, directly on your central touchscreen. We love that the Soul doesn't take itself too seriously--multicolored ambient lighting changes color, so you can set the cabin tone according to your current mood. The 2017 Kia Soul steps out in style.
From behind the wheel of the 2017 Kia Soul, you've got plenty of power at your command. That's especially true when you opt for the new turbocharged engine, which kick things up a notch with highway-friendly performance. Congested highways will never again be cause for concern, with the Kia Soul's responsive speed and sharp handling. Switch the powertrain into Sport mode to hold gears longer and take acceleration to new heights.
Finally, the 2017 Kia Soul is packed with safety gear for your on-road protection. The forward collision warning system gives you advanced notice of a possible crash, thereby giving you time to slow down. The Soul's lane departure warning can sense when you've accidentally drifted outside the proper white lines, helping you avoid careless sideswipes. This innovative crossover also earned impressive crash-test scores. In government crash tests, the Kia Soul earned a perfect five-star rating for overall protection. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gave the Soul its top score of "Good" in every single crash test.
An electric version of Kia's bestselling compact crossover, the Soul EV offers you a new option for driving around town. An ultralight lithium battery sits under the car, freeing up your interior to carry passengers and cargo, not a bulky battery. Modern and streamlined, the Soul EV speaks to technological advancement throughout, with three ways to charge (including something as simple as plugging it into the standard wall plug at home to the phenomenally fast DC Fast Charge option at charging stations throughout the U.S.) and LED displays to maximize your driving range. Combine these features with the design, styling, and performance that you've come to expect from a Soul and you have a new model that's worth a second (or a third) look.
The 2017 Kia Soul is truly unique with its own brand of youthful style, inside and out. Its funky exterior is easily recognizable, and, inside, you'll find premium features like the panoramic sunroof and sporty leather upholstery. The Kia Soul is fun to drive, with engine power and tech features to fuel your experience.
