U.S. News ranks Kia Soul #1 Across 3 Segments!




                The Kia Soul, one of Kia’s fastest growing vehicles, just got even more recognition! U.S. News just ranked the 2017 Kia Soul #1 in Compact Cars, #1 in Small Cars, and #1 in Hatchbacks. You may already know that Car and Driver ranked the Soul as #1 Subcompact Crossover, KBB had the Soul in their list of the “10 Coolest Cars Under $18,000”, or that J.D Power gave it the IQS Award, so it may come as no surprise that the 2017 Kia Soul is quickly becoming one of the most popular vehicles in America!

                Now that you have heard a little bit about some of the Awards and Recognition that the Kia Soul has received lets take a look at how this innovative Crossover compares to the other vehicles in its segment. The Kia Soul features a spacious cabin with room for up to 5 people, while still maintaining good legroom, something the Mazda CX-3 lacks. Unlike the comparable Nissan Rogue or Toyota C-HR, The Kia Soul offers a Fun, Responsive driving experience thanks to the available Turbo Engine.  If you have been considering the Jeep Renegade but found the Wrangler-like handling and ride performance uncomfortable the smooth and quite Kia Soul should definitely by among the vehicles you consider! With the lowest price range in the segment, best Warranty, and its intuitive layout we can really start understand what makes this Stylish Crossover so popular!

                A step above in style! Even with its affordable price point Kia managed to pack every feature from a Panoramic Sunroof to an available 8” Touchscreen Navigation Unit with Blind Spot Detection and Apple Car Play into the 2017 Kia Soul. LED Fog Lights and Tail Lights, Sharp Lines, and its Low Stance give the Soul a unique appearance that sets it apart from the crowd. When compared to the other vehicles in its segment the Kia Soul stands out from the cookie-cutter style of the other options.

                When it comes to power the Kia Soul really shines. The 1.6l Turbo Engine available on the Exclaim out performs its competitors without exception. With 201 hp and 195 lb-ft of Torque it has an impressive 0-60 of 6.5 seconds. For comparison, the CX-3 comes in at 8.1 seconds, even the Nissan Juke NISMO RS can’t keep up with the Soul with its 6.7 second 0-60 mph. Just like the old saying with more power comes more responsibility, with more speed comes the responsibility for more safety. Once again, another category where the Kia Soul hits it out of the park! The 2017 Kia Soul has a 5 Star Safety Rating from NHTSA.

                With all of these pieces we can start to put the puzzle together. The final piece? Kia has some great financing specials and incentives on this all around winning crossover! That makes the 2017 Kia Soul the right fit for a first car, daily driver, nimble city navigator, road trip cruiser, or all of the above!
