Since 2008, the Kia Soul has been leaving its competition in the dust. 


Let’s get the obvious out of the way. We get it, the word practical–especially when referring to cars–is often used as a polite stand-in for a meaner adjective. 


In an era of flashy promotions and endless superfluous infotainment features, it can be easy to forget all of the benefits that come from having a distinctively practical car. At the end of the day, driving is still fundamentally about getting somewhere, and few other brands understand this quite like Kia. 


The 2021 Kia Soul continues a proud heritage of reliable, affordable, and practical vehicles. First-time drivers love this car for being both accessible AND effortlessly responsive while experienced commuters love its best-of-class mileage. 


To that end, let’s look at the features that make the 2021 Kia Soul such a practical car, along with the difference that makes on your drive. 


Great Mileage + Great Handling = Great Driving


It’s no secret that the Soul has good gas mileage. Despite boasting a roomy interior, drivers can expect to get 29 MPG during city drives, which increases to a whopping 35 MPG on the highway! 


When paired with the Soul’s continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT), the result is a car that can fit an incredible range of highly responsive driving into a single tank of gas. Higher trims can easily go from 0-60 MPH in just 6.4 seconds, showing that there’s a considerable degree of power packed into the vehicle’s nimble body. 


All of this translates to a driving experience that’s just as comfortable on crowded, rainy streets as it is on open highways. It’s hard to put a price on the difference that makes for your commute. After all, having an expensive, lifted vehicle might be empowering while you’re tearing up the backroads, but all of that bulk gets spooky quickly once you’re forced to navigate tight city streets. 


The Soul’s Unique Sense of Comfort Goes a Long Way–Especially During Commutes


That sense of comfort that we just mentioned isn’t a throwaway benefit, it’s one of the main reasons that drivers love the Kia Soul so much. Every inch of the car’s spacious 101 cubic feet of passenger space has been carefully optimized to provide a thoughtful, comfortable experience. 


Some of the 2021 Kia Soul’s unique interior features that really crystalize this sense of stylish comfort include wireless smartphone charging, dynamic ambient LED lighting, push-button ignition, and a heads-up display that broadcasts important information onto the windshield. 


All of these features work together to ensure that every decision that the driver makes is an effortless, responsive experience. For drivers that face a frequent or difficult commute, this is a game-changer. Getting to work in the morning doesn’t have to be a frantic rush of checking your review mirrors and holding your breath when you switch lanes–the Kia Soul transforms it into an effortless, adventurous glide. 


There’s a Difference Between “Affordable” and “Cheap.”


With an MSRP of $20,365 for the standard LX Trim that extends to a $28,965 cost for the high-end Turbo trim, the Soul is one of the most accessibly priced cars on the market. Its reasonable price tag means that it’s the perfect car for first-time or teenage drivers–and also everyone else! 


Don’t be fooled by the fact that the 2021 Kia Soul’s price tag is noticeably lower than the competition. There’s a huge difference between being affordable and being cheap, and the 2021 Kia Soul perfectly illustrates this. 


Whereas a cheap car is just defined by a low price, being affordable means that something offers a good value for a reasonable price, and the Kia Soul absolutely delivers on this. Drivers can expect a full suite of advanced safety features, along with an incredibly generous warranty. Each new 2021 Kia Soul is covered by a 10-year/100,000 mile-powertrain warranty, along with any incentives or additional coverage that your local Kia dealership might offer!
