5 great small cars for the urban landscape
2014 Kia Soul
Kia took the wraps off the redesigned Kia Soul at the 2013 New York International Auto Show. The boxy little compact that was introduced in 2009 now features styling similar to Kia's Track'ster concept, which was unveiled last year.
The redesign makes the Soul larger and wider overall, which increases both passenger and cargo space, while seating design changes and the car's overall step-in height make entering and exiting the vehicle easier. Chassis and suspension improvements improve handling, while reducing exterior noise and vibration to create a more pleasant driving experience.
Arriving in showrooms in the late spring of this year, all 2014 Kia Soul cars will come standard with power windows and door locks, heated exterior mirrors, telescopic steering wheel and a six-speaker audio system, while available features include leather seats, ventilated driver and front passenger seats, panoramic sunroof, string light-emitting diode mood lighting and a navigation system.
