    Link to 2012 Kia Soul ! Video Review

    Hi folks,

    I attended the 2012 Rio/Soul press launch in Texas and have finally got around to producing the Soul review. It's a ! model. My wife liked it so much she ended up buying one. Here's the link- 2012 Kia Soul ! HD Video Review drivencarreviews.com

    Hey Tom,
    Great review, very well done.

    A question and a comment: does the additional sound proofing really reduce the highway noise from earlier models? Seems to me that I've heard not. Also, I drove a '10, '11 and '12 all within two days this past week. I was somewhat taken aback by the new electric steering on the '12. As you've mentioned, somewhat "disconnected" and I found it a readily apparent and a disappointment.

    I'm still searching for my Soul and have viewed tons of visual and written online reviews. Without a doubt, Mr. Voelk, yours ranks number 1! Detailed, engaging, splendid! Thank you for such great work!!

    Edited to add: In the video, you stated nearly all of your wife's driving was in the city. Would you please post the MPG's her Soul is averaging? It would be very helpful as I am interested in an Exclaim, too, to use mostly in town. Thank you, Sir!

    GO HEELS!

    if may answer too, I finding it quieter than my Rondo, and no problem with conversations and listening to the UVO at 100-120 kmph. Initially the electric steering can throw you off when you are so used to hydraulic but after a while it's second nature. It is only very light at very low speeds like parking but on the highway I can't tell the difference as it tightens up. Wouldn't go back to "old system".

    ^^ I could'nt agree more conwelpic .... steering and all .... I drove a 2010 Exclaim for 2 1/2 years , and the without a doubt the 2012 is exceptionally quieter .... the six speed also helps with the noise level too

    Sounds nice, it wasn't available here. Only Titanium and Moss. Enjoy!

    Hi Heelsfan,

    I'll ask her to keep track of the MPG, not something she does usually. FYI, she's a little hard on the throttle so it will be lower I'll guess.
