You know the Kia Soul. Right? Wrong! The Kia Soul in unknowable, ever-changing, and full of surprises. It may be spunky and funky, but that's just scratching the surface of the Kia Soul phenomenon. The Soul is the compact crossover with personality, and the answer to the universal question: with so many vehicles out there, how do I choose the right one? You start by visiting Cumberland Kia at 1560 Interstate Dr. We have been home to the ever-popular Soul since its introduction, and we can tell you we have never met a Soul we didn't like. Its sporty design makes the Soul the perfect small SUV for Cookeville drivers. We serve everyone in Lebanon, Crossville, Mcminville, Franklin, and Chattanooga, TN, so hop on the freeway and stop by for a surprising test-drive of the 2016 Kia Soul.
You may not have noticed yet, but all the other similarly-shaped vehicles have disappeared completely. Years ago, there were all kinds of cube-shaped novelty cars, and a host of wagons with cartoonish features. Yet only the Soul survives in 2016. Is it the Soul's impeccable balance of style, tech features, and affordability? Of course! Is it the Soul's willingness to re-invent itself every time you turn around? Yes! Media writers give much credit to the Kia Soul Hamsters, but we're not so sure. Did you know that the Soul Hamsters were inducted into the Madison Avenue Walk of Fame in 2011, the only carmaker ever to make it in? Those were great TV commercials, but if you think back, it was the music the hamsters moved to that stirred consumers more than anything. The Kia Soul is a vehicle for all ages, and we have one at Cumberland Kia just for you.
The Soul comes in three trim levels - Base, Plus and Exclaim, and all three have been updated for the new model year. The Base model now comes with a 4.3-inch color touchscreen, a rear camera display, satellite radio, and stunning 16-inch alloy wheels. The Kia Soul Plus gets the Designer Collection treatment, which gives you a leather-wrapped steering wheel, two-tone roof treatment, and 18-inch alloy wheels. Also new for 2016 are gloss black bumper tusks, and auto on/off headlights. Finally, the top-of-the-line Exclaim trim is loaded for bear, with these features included as standard:
The cargo space afforded by the Soul's modest size is remarkable - 24.2 cubic feet behind the rear seats (the world's biggest trunk) and a whopping 61.3 cubic feet with the rear seats folded down. This is due to the Soul's distinctive tall profile, and it gives you enough room to transport medium-sized zoo animals, but please spring for the Exclaim trim if you plan to load a giraffe. It has a sunroof.
The Kia Base model has a 1.6-liter 4-cylinder churning out 130 hp and 118 pound-feet of torque, while the Plus and Exclaim trim models provide a kick-butt 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine that gives you a more satisfying 164 hp and 151 pound-feet of torque. The Plus and Exclaim versions come with a six-speed automatic transmission, and the Base model comes standard with a six-speed manual and offers the automatic as an option. Both powertrains give you excellent fuel economy: the Base engine weighs in at 24 city/30 highway/26 combined; the more fearsome 2.0L engine is similarly rated at 24 city/30 highway/26 combined. As always, this year's Kia Soul is again slaying the critics with its agile handling and highly responsive steering. Unlike other small SUVs, the Soul has managed to dampen wind turbulence and road noise to give you a whisper-quiet and elegant ride.
