For used Kia Soul cars, choose Arnold Clark

The Kia Soul is a subcompact, five-door hatchback. Designed in a boxy style with a raised roof, the Kia Soul offers an excellent city driving experience, with its low-to-the-ground style and practical cabin making it suitable for lots of different drivers.

The Soul stands out on the road thanks to its striking shape and bold looks. With low bumpers, moulded headlights and uniquely crafted taillights, the Soul’s adventurous design turns heads wherever it goes.

This is also a very family friendly model too. Its raised roof means even tall passengers can sit upright in comfort. And with a spacious cabin, lots of handy storage options and good boot space, the Soul is an excellent choice for adventures with all the family.

As a reasonably priced, subcompact model, the Soul faces close competition from other models such as the Citroën C4 Cactus and Nissan Juke in offering a combination of practicality and cabin comfort. The Kia Soul is also available in an all-electric model, the Kia e-Soul, which rivals models like the Nissan Leaf and Hyundai Ioniq in adding exceptionally efficient engines to the model’s appeal.

Kia Soul updates and facelifts

The Kia Soul was first launched in 2009, with a facelift in 2011 adding a revised bumper and stylish LED daytime running lights. The Mk2 followed in 2014 and included distinctive new looks, such as wraparound taillights and lower air intakes, as well as growing the dimensions of the model. The Mk2 received a facelift in 2017, with the model undergoing minor changes to its body, new body paints and restyled headlights.

With the release of the Mk3 in 2019, the Soul was restyled once again. This generation added slim headlights and a pronounced front grille to its outer design. The Mk3 was also released as a fully electric model, the Kia e-Soul, which is the only version of the Mk3 sold in Europe. The 2023 e-Soul facelift added new head and rear light styling, a remodelled front bumper and new wheel styles to give it a more striking appearance.

Practicality and style of the car

While a subcompact model by design, the Soul has lots of practicality. Compared to the Mk1, the Mk2 Kia Soul’s width of 1800mm is 15mm wider and 79mm wider than the Citroën C4 Cactus. Its wheelbase of 2570mm is also 20mm longer than the Mk1, offering more legroom in the cabin.

The Soul has plenty to offer families, with its raised roof and roomy cabin meaning there’s ample headroom for even tall passengers. There’s also good leg and knee room across all seats, making the Soul a comfortable cabin for all occupants.

Keeping the cabin tidy is easy thanks to a good-sized glovebox, deep door bins and centre console cubby which also has cup holders. Two ISOFIX points on the rear outer seats mean you can make sure any younger passengers are strapped in safely and securely.

The Kia Soul also has reasonable boot space, offering a standard boot of up to 354 litres. And although the rear seats don’t fold fully flat, adjust them forward and boot space will increase to a total 1,367 litres – 197 litres more than the Citroën C4 Cactus’s 1,170 litres.

Running costs

The Soul is a great choice if you’re looking for a model with reasonable running costs. Its insurance premiums range from groups 9 to 21, with only the Sport trim falling into this top level. Annual road tax for the Soul will be a maximum of £290 for the Maxx trim, while most trims qualify for the £180 band.
