, Automotive Editor -

At first glance the Kia Soul feels gimmicky, but the funky crossover vehicle has a certain light-hearted approach to function that adds to its appeal. If you’re not one to blend in, color options such as Solar Yellow, Kale Green, and Inferno Red will ensure that never happens. The 2014 Soul takes blatant cues from the concept Kia Track’ster. The Kia Soul is the sort of crossover vehicle that grows on you.

What's New for 2014

The Soul has been significantly revised for the 2014 model year. Noticeable changes include new wheel designs, alterations to the exterior and a longer wheelbase. On the interior, options have been added for an eight-inch touch screen, Pandora radio, and UVO eServices, a second-generation infotainment system.

Choosing Your Kia Soul

The trim level you choose dictates which engine you get, and you'll notice that prices climb quickly.

Soul Base

The base Soul, priced from $14,900, is equipped with a 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 130 horsepower and 24 mpg city and 30 mpg highway. A six-speed manual transmission is standard; the optional six-speed automatic costs a rather hefty $1,800. Bluetooth, USB and auxilary inputs, power windows and door locks, heated outside mirrors and a SiriusXM satellite radio are all standard, though.

CarsDirect Tip

An unqualified improvement on last year's model, the 2014 Soul has a longer wheelbase and, therefore, a more steady and sure ride. Be careful, though, when adding options, as a loaded Exclaim can approach $30,000. For the best value, stick to the Plus and few carefully-chosen options.
