2013 Kia Soul Review: What Is It
Blending elements of a crossover SUV, a station wagon, and a hatchback into a single vehicle, the unmistakably stylish, practical, and affordable 2013 Kia Soul defies classification but remains fresh and distinctive as it enters its fourth model year. These types of vehicles – inexpensive, roomy, useful, and unusual – are increasingly in demand as Americans focus on what they need in a new vehicle, rather than what they want.
Having driven a Soul only briefly when it first debuted for 2010, I figured it was time to revisit this little-big car, so I borrowed one from Kia for a weeklong test, shuttling kids, running errands, commuting and, of course, driving it on my standard evaluation loop.
This is my Soul story.
