2017 Kia Soul Expert Rundown Review

Looking for a great mix of a hatchback, wagon and SUV? The 2017 Kia Soul might be a good match. Here's a quick rundown of what we like, what we don't and the bottom line from the Edmunds editors.

TRAVIS LANGNESS: I'm automotive editor Travis Langness. And this is the Edmunds Expert Rundown of the 2017 Kia Soul. For 2017, the Kia Soul's biggest upgrade is the new turbocharged engine with stronger power and more performance. You can only get the turbo engine on the Soul's top trim level, but we think it's worth the cost. On top of the increased performance, you also get a nicer cabin and more tech features. Unfortunately, the ride quality suffers with the bigger wheels. And overall, the Soul has unimpressive fuel economy for a car in this class. On the inside, the Soul's got an attractive cabin with lots of user-friendly controls and more passenger space than you might expect from a car this size. It's not typical that we recommend the top trim level. But with the Kia Soul, it's definitely worth the extra cost. You get peppier turbo engine. And the price increase over the mid-range model isn't that big. Bottom line is the Kia Soul is a high-quality, , utilitarian and competitively priced car that we definitely recommend.
