What to think of the 2020 Kia Soul?

I would like to know your appreciation of the 2020 Kia Soul and how much I should pay if I get it.


Hello Francine,

The Kia Soul is a very nice car and, all in all, was ahead of its time when it was introduced in 2010. Indeed, this car has created a good reputation in a short period, to the point where the competition was inspired by it to launch new products.

Derived from the Kia Rio, it competes very well with the Chevrolet Trax, Hyundai Venue and Nissan Kicks, however having a more attractive value and above-average quality. Efficiently powered, the Soul is fuel efficient, well equipped and covered by a warranty that only Mitsubishi can boast of surpassing. So this is in the segment the best product you can get.

As for the price you should pay, it all depends of course on your equipment needs and wants. Kia offers a lineup of seven versions for 2020, with prices ranging from $ 23,000 to $ 31,500, plus taxes. Now, know that the most luxurious versions have the disadvantage of being fitted with 18-inch tires, which is more or less well suited to the roads of Quebec. In my opinion, an EX or EX + model is arguably the best balance when it comes to equipment / price ratio.

Let us finish by mentioning that the Soul has been equipped since this year with a new transmission called IVT, which had some reliability problems on its arrival. However, it seems that these issues only affected the first series models produced for 2020, so you shouldn’t be concerned.
