Specifications, features and disadvantages of Kia Soul 2021

 


The new 2021 Kia Soul is one of our best small SUVs. It comes with a spacious, comfortable cabin, easy-to-use technology, but isn't as sporty as some competitors in its class.


The 2021 Kia Soul is one of the best small SUVs on the market, and inside there are adult-friendly seats in both rows, ample luggage space and a host of optional features.


It's not as fun to drive as the Mazda CX-3, but it's fairly smooth to drive, comes with a long warranty, and the cabin doesn't have many soft-touch surfaces like some competitors.


You should consider buying a Kia Soul if you are looking for a good SUV that will not break your budget and in addition to its below average base price, Soul has plenty of room for a small SUV.


However, competitors such as the Mazda CX-3 handle more corners and have sharper handling than the Soul. Also, the Hyundai Kona has more standard safety features.
