Speaking about Kia Soul + 2019 I can say the new version of Kia is much more brutal. I like it more.
First there are very comfortable bucket seats, very comfortable fit for me personally, the steering wheel is high, the seat is lower, it‘s very comfortable. I don’t fall out of my seat anywhere.
The car provides a very good overview, the road is clearly visible, you do not need to stretch anywhere or bend.
The angle of view of the mirrors is excellent, the mirrors are large.
On the steering wheel there are two joysticks that can be used by the onboard computer and not only. I haven’t figured out all the buttons yet.
There is a card play that allows you to listen to music by connecting to your phone.
All the pluses: an armrest, a cup holder, heated seats, climate control, good sound system, good ground clearance, multi-steering, cruise control, heated steering wheel. The car has comfortable rear seats.
The car is definitely worth its money.
The trunk is small but adjustable due to the floor, although it opens high enough. You can install a box on the roof of the car. There is a spare set with tools. There is no electric drive in the trunk unfortunately.
Inside the car there is a nice finish, nothing rattles or makes noise, noise insulation is at a good level. The interior is not fully equipped but it is quite enough for me.
On rough terrain and off-road suspension of the car behaves normally.
Many people said that the car is not beautiful I do not agree with this. The appearance of the car is very interesting, interesting headlights, it is similar to a tiger, the car is powerful aggressive, but at the same time urban and very passable. But I agree that the exterior is for an amateur.
The car has high ceilings, I am tall and this is undoubtedly a plus for me.
My wife likes the car very much. She gets into it and feels as if she has always ridden it. The car is easy to drive, high fit, easy to park, no problems. The car is quite modern, reliable, it is a car for young people for everyday life.
Compared to previous models the car has become larger, the length of the Kia has become longer, and the doorways have become wider.
There are three modes – normal, economy and sport. I often ride on the sport mode, in previous versions this was absent. The machine responds in a completely different way you can feel its power.
If we talk about technology the car is more than reasonable, it has all the systems that premium cars have – the intelligent cruise control, monitoring of driver fatigue (the car signals this), notification of blind spots with sound and light signals.
But the body is tightened as well as the suspension, so even on a good road I feel all the irregularities. This of course I do not like.
