My daughter loves the roominess, strong stereo , back up camera in the rear view mirror(NOT SURE IT IS FACTORY) ,and it got 34.5 mpg on the way home!! For a 2013 it is not really missing any tech compared to other 2013 cars.

Soul — Good Car, Great warranty. Speedy and great handling. Lots of space for hauling with the seat folded down. Great sound system and good features. MPG could be better, but them the price would go up. The perfect family grocer getter.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Cheap and sporty, lots of space.

Cons: No spare tire

Kia Soul, Great Fun Car To Dirve — This care has been a very good car to own/lease. It's low cost and simple operation make it a very nice car. It gets great gas millage and has good visibility for driving. It drives bigger than it is. It has a great turning radius so it's super for getting in and out of small places. It also holds a lot of stuff when the seats are folded down.

Pros: This has been a very good car. Fun to drive and reliable. No major issues with maintenance.

Cons: The stock tires that Kia provided were not good. I replaced one, then replaced the entire set. Also it didn't come with a spare tire. Lame. Otherwise I'm happy with the car.

I was impressed at how well the Soul supported me in the seat. I have a bad back and usually get sciatic nerve pain after 30 minutes or so in the car. Not this time! Yea! I bought it and will do some customizing to it. Got to make it mine, you know.

Value Ranked 2002 Subaru Forester S Premium worse.
"11 years difference in technology for one. The Soul is up-to-date, while the Forester is a bit tired. But for what I used it for, it worked. The Soul just takes driving up a notch or three over the Forester."

The kia soul is the best bang for the buck put there. It is actually fun to drive and handles quite well. The larger 2.0l has plenty of snap and great on gas.
