Passenger & boot space

How it copes with people and clutter

In the front, the Kia Soul EV gives you more than enough leg and head room even if you're well over six feet tall, and there’s enough width to prevent you or your passenger from feeling squished. There are loads of storage spaces, including convenient cup holders, a large tray for your mobile in the centre console and a decent-sized glovebox. The door bins aren’t huge, but will each hold a bottle of water, along with other odds and ends.

Two six-footers can sit happily in the back seats behind two equally tall adults without struggling for space. There’s slightly less leg and head room than in the Kia Niro EV and MG ZS EV but the difference is marginal. If three adults sit side by side, they’ll experience some shoulder chafing, but with only a low central floor hump to get in the way, every passenger has plenty of foot space.
