Product Overview

Kia Soul (chassis code AM) is an entry-level subcompact crossover in production from 2009 to 2014. It was available with a range of inline-4 engines that displaced 1.6 to 2.0 liters.
Related to the Hyundai i20, the Kia Soul has a distinct styling that makes it unforgettable. It strands between minivan, hatchback, and crossover, and few vehicles on the market had the same design at the time.
Drivetrain-wise, the Mk1 Soul was somewhat reliable but not exciting. Its torsion beam rear suspension confirms its status as an economy car.
