Similar to a delicious ice cream sundae that only becomes more crave-worthy with a cherry on top, the 2017 Kia Soul is better enjoyed when paired with its all-new, turbocharged engine. We’ve sung the praises of this class-bending vehicle for years; not quite a hatchback, but much too small to be considered a traditional wagon, the Kia Soul is a great car, no matter what you want to call it.
It ticks all the boxes when it comes to price, personality, and features, but always needed justification when it came to performance. The Turbo now gives us everything we wanted in the Soul, without getting gaudy or ridiculous. As far as we’re concerned, the new Soul Turbo is the Soul to shop for, and we’ve got plenty of reasons why.
