About the Soul
The Soul is a subcompact crossover SUV built by the South Korean company Kia.
Sold onwards from 2008, the Soul was the result of Kia’s design center in California.
Unveiled at the Paris Motor Show, its first generation was boxy in shape with a high roof height and sweeping headlamps.
Internally, there were two bucket seats at the front, with a rear folding bench seat to the rear, the latter could be manipulated to the cargo requirements.
Some premium features included a leather steering wheel, cruise control, 18-inch alloy wheels and LED indicators.
Limited edition models included the Soul Flex, Kia Soul Tiger, Kia Soul Dragon and the Kia Soul Denim.
Following Euro NCAP tests, the Soul received an impressive five stars for overall safety, with side impact, roof strength and head restraints all marked as ‘good.’
Second-generation models were launched in 2013 at the New York Auto Show. These newer models were larger vehicles and stylistically had more angular features.
Assembled at the South Korean Gwangju Plant, the new Soul offered a number of engine variants ranging from 1.6-liter to 2-liter.
By 2019, Kia had released the third generation; retaining its boxy appearance, it was at this point that the electric option joined the lineup, the Kia Soul EV.
There are a number of alternatives for customers wishing to look elsewhere for their SUVs, including the Honda Fit, the similarly looking Jeep Renegade, the Honda HR-V, the Toyota C-HR, the Kia Niro, Hyundai Elantra GT and the Mazda CX-3.
Some common faults codes found With the Kia Soul are:
- P0300 – This code points to a misfiring cylinder, this could be caused by too little fuel being burned, or a damaged spark plug.
- P0420 – Poor efficiency found in the catalyst system, oxygen levels are too low and can create a problem with the vehicle’s exhaust system.
- P0017 – A code that can be triggered by numerous causes, it is recommended that the operator consults a mechanic for a proper diagnosis. Ultimately, there is an issue with the crankshaft position.
