Company car buyer

KIA SOUL Hatchback 1.6 CRDi 2 5dr

Way too pricey for a Soul. If you must have one, save yourself some money and go for the 1.6 petrol version in 1 trim.

Private car buyer

KIA SOUL Hatchback 1.6 GDi 2 5dr

A decent choice if you must have a Soul, but we’d recommend saving yourself a few quid and making do with the 1 model.

Trim level

EV
This electric version comes with highlights including lightweight 16in alloy wheels with low rolling resistance tyres, an 8.0in touchscreen with sat-nav and a charging point locator, climate control, keyless entry, heated front seats, a heated steering wheel, privacy glass, and a reversing camera. \n\n,
3
β€˜3’ trim is pretty luxurious with keyless entry and go, heated front seats, leather seat trim, front and rear parking sensors, dual-height boot floor, automatic wipers, 18in alloy wheels and a JBL sound system with a subwoofer along with a larger 8.0in touchscreen. It represents a big jump up in price, though, so we wouldn’t bother unless the above are on your β€˜must have’ list.
Sport
The Sport model comes with the extra performance of its more powerful turbocharged petrol engine, but you also get added features on top of the β€˜3’ trim such as a panoramic glass sunroof, heated front and rear seats, xenon headlights with automatic main beams, lane departure warning, blind spot detection and rear cross traffic alert.,
Our pick
2
This adds niceties including a 7.0in touchscreen interface with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, sat-nav with live traffic updates, privacy glass, climate control, automatic headlights, rear parking sensors, a rear-view camera, 17in alloy wheels and cruise control.,
1
Entry-level β€˜1’ trim is relatively modestly kitted out, yet still has air-conditioning, 16in alloy wheels, power-folding and electrically adjustable door mirrors, all-round electric windows, a DAB radio and Bluetooth.
