2018 Kia Soul

The Kia Soul is a hit with parents and automotive insiders.

Editors from Parents magazine and automotive experts from Edmunds singled out the Kia Soul for the second year in a row when comprising the 2018 roundup of the 10 Best Family Cars. Out of 300 four-wheeled contenders, the Soul snagged a spot in the coveted group as the “Best SUV-Like Wagon” due to its family-friendly features, safety technologies, and value (with a $16,200+ price tag, it’s the cheapest vehicle included in the top 10, notes Parents magazine).

According to Karen Cicero of Parents magazine, “The boxy design allows for more interior space so you won’t have trouble taking boosters or car seats in and out of the back. Front crash-protection and high intensity headlights (available in a package for an extra $4,500) helped it garner the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety’s highest rating.”

The 2018 Kia Soul comes in 11 colors, three trim levels, and features a choice of two engines. It is equipped with Bluetooth® wireless technology hands-free connectivity with steering-wheel mounted controls, an AM/FM/MPS/SiriusXM® audio system, and features available Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ compatibility. Available driver assist technologies include Autonomous Emergency Braking, a Forward Collision Warning System, a Blind-Spot Detection System, and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert.

“Being recognized as a top family car by Parents magazine and Edmunds for the second consecutive year is a tremendous honor for our Soul urban passenger vehicle,” said Orth Hedrick, vice president, product planning, Kia Motors America.  “This is yet another testament to the world-class quality, value, and packaging we deliver to our customers.”
