The Top Gear car review: Kia Soul
Running costs and reliability
Despite things like DAB on all, the Soul somehow isn’t quite as affordable as you’d expect, particularly the forthcoming Mixx and Maxx range-toppers. Worth avoiding for their names alone. The Connect Plus is the one to go for, as it has the flash sat nav as standard. Similarly, the engines could be more efficient, especially the thirsty petrol. But it has that huge warranty (and the associated build quality), by which time the styling could have made it a cult car over here as well as the US. Maybe.
