  2. New Soul Searcher: How are the 2010 122 hp with 5 speed models?

    New Member Introductions
    Hi, I recently went out looking for a new car. Seeking a small 4 door 2017 on clearance. Went by Kia to look at some base LX Rios and then got turned onto a base 1.6 Liter Soul. I liked it well. It felt less peppy than the Rio with the same 6 speed and 1.6 liter, but it was adequate. I loved...

  5. 2017 Soul vs 2016 - feature gains and losses - Canadian models

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    I was curious about the changes over the two models years other than the normal exterior tweaks from and back and to what you have gained on a model and what you have lost (always seems to happen). The info I have is not always the best in details, so do not guarantee that this is 100% accurate...

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    We are looking at Kia Souls for our daughter. She has her heart set on one in Alien. A sales manager told us yesterday that all the 2012s that were going to be made are made, and if we didn't find what we wanted, we'd have to wait. Nosing around on Internet, several sites state that then new...
