The Sleek and Sophisticated 2016 @KIA Soul! #DriveKIA

This was my very first time driving a KIA Soul! and although I had driven numerous other KIA vehicles, I was looking forward to having the Soul available to me for the entire week.


I think we've all seen the television commercials featuring the KIA Soul! with the hamsters, right? I love them...my kids love them...we all love them! As cute and catchy as the commercials may be, that isn't the reason for my KIA Soul! excitement. This car has been completely transformed and is awesome. My KIA was Inferno Red and it was HOT ~ I received so many compliments on the color along during the week I was driving it around town. Although no one outside of my family actually got into the KIA Soul!, it was definitely noticed.

The interior of this vehicle was impressive as well as it was designed with complete comfort in mind. The Automatic Climate Control feature ensured that we were driving in the right climate with heated and ventilated driver and passenger seats. Wow...I love that feature! The steering wheel and backseats were also able to be heated but during the week I was driving the Soul, the weather was hot, humid...typical Texas weather! I'm positive that in the winter months I would have used and greatly appreciated the heated seats and steering wheel. 
This car had a feature that I had never seen before in a vehicle, and that is Speaker Lights! Yes! It's like instant atmosphere in a car. Awesome! The lights respond to the audio, changing color and intensity with every beat. Another feature that set the mood and atmosphere was the panoramic sunroof. My sons absolutely love this one. They can look directly up and see the sky, day or night.
