    2017's "mysterious blue"

    Wanted to give other shoppers a heads-up on this color since I was wondering about it while shopping. Dealers had told me that the new color was different from 2016's blue, but none of them could agree on how it was different. It's also scarce in some places, I snagged the only one in the state the day after the dealership received it. And it doesn't help that Kia's own build/inventory pages have the wrong color square, it is not a slate like they show. The vehicle preview is more accurate though. So, mysterious blue actually is....

    A metallic dark blue, very much like the 2016.
    Ta-da!

    Ok, but it's also a little weirder. There's a hint of green that varies depending on lighting. At night under fluorescents, it can look almost sea-green, enough that I wasn't sure about wanting this color. Overall it's good though, and is a nice subtle quirk for those who want a non-monochrome color but think Alien is too overboard. Disappointing that it is only available on the Plus though, base/Exclaim color lineup is kinda lacking this year.

    I can't post photos directly yet, but looks like KSF is ok with photos in profiles for new members, hop in there if you want to take a peek.

    Does it look something like this?



    I love Blue! Blue is just so ethereal. I have had dozens of cars in the past but only one blue car that I really loved.
    It was a Suzuki Forenza, in Cobalt Blue. If I ever had to have my white Soul repainted, that's the color I'd want to paint it.

    Welcome to the forum, you and your Blue Soul.

    Cheers Mate!

    Soul MT/2014/Titanium
    My Titanium Soul does the same thing. Under overcast sky it can appear to be the Mocha color. So much that when I first had the car I almost didn't recognize it as mine.

    In various day & night conditions it's not quite 50 Shades of Gray, but a few shades for sure.

    2016 Kia Soul Base MT
    I saw the blue on Kia's site while I was researching new cars and really wanted to see it in person but the only dealership near me didn't have any on the lot. One of the salesmen told me that those more "exotic" colors are rarely on the lot because they just don't move as quickly as your more basic colors... which makes sense.

    I ended up with a 2016 Black Base MT but they also had a great deal on the Alien Green. I wasn't a fan at first but I keep seeing one at work, and I swear they're everywhere around town now that I own one, and it's really grown on me!
