KIA SOUL

The Kia Soul is one of those ve­hi­cles you can’t be am­biva­lent about.You ei­ther love the way it looks, or you don’t. The new gen­er­a­tion Soul, how­ever, is win­ning crit­ics over with its eye­catch­ing new de­sign. And the over­haul is ev­i­dent in the in­te­rior as well. It com­fort­ably seats four and the cabin is qui­eter than its pre­de­ces­sor’s thanks to im­proved noise vi­bra­tion lev­els.The 17-inch al­loy wheels, ABS brakes, air con­di­tion­ing, six-speaker sound sys­tem, elec­tric win­dows and airbags are stan­dard and the Soul comes in three trim lev­els: the en­try-level Start, the mi­dlevel Street and the top-spec Smart. How­ever, it’s not a car built for per­for­mance, with both the petrol and diesel vari­ants lag­ging a bit.The SUV-look­ing Soul is per­fectly suited to an ur­ban life­style. Price: From R239 995
