2009 Kia Soul
Reviewed 22 Oct 2009

I was very impressed when I took the Kia Soul for a test drive. It was the top of the range demonstration model I drove. Alll Kia soul cars have a 1.6 diesel engine and give over 50mpg. I eventually purchased this particular car. It has an electric sun roof and a colour reversing camera which activates when the car is put into reverse gear. There are also reversing sensors which bleep intermittently at first and as the object at the rear gets nearer they bleep continously. This particular model is fitted with 18inch alloy wheels and low profile tyres. It also comes in 16inch and 17 inch wheels. I find that the 18inch wheel is a little bit bumpy on a rough surface but this normal with a large wheel. The driving position is very high and provides a good view. The extra height makes it easy to get in and out of. This car responds very quickly with lots of power when you ask it to pick up and cruises along. This particular model is priced at €23400. I found it to be excellent value for money and it can comfortably carry 4/5 people. The other impressive fact about this car is that it comes with a 5 year unlimited mileage warrenty. The passengers with modern gadgets can plug in their laptop and ipod. The occupants safety is well catered for with muliti air bags and spot lights. This car has also been awarded the highest safety rating in the European crash test . The comfort is looked after with air conditioning and up grade radio and cd player. There are also disco effect lights which may be operated in conjunction with the music being played. Its easy on the pocket as well with road tax at just €156. Overall I am very satisfied with my metalic painted Kia Soul which I now have for seven trouble free months .
