The Kia Soul and its electric counterpart the Soul EV are classed as subcompact crossover SUVs.
Underneath the car is the platform used by the Hyundai i20 - common practice between these two carmakers since the turn of the century.
Initial models released in 2008 were criticized for the plastic interior and harsh ride, though designers were quick to fix this within the first year of production.
Sales quickly climbed as the car was tweaked during the first 2 years to hit over 100,000 sales per year before peaking at just over 200,000 for the year of 2015.
In 2013 the second-generation Kia Soul was released and saw the styling modernized and the platform ready for the introduction of the EV version in 2015.
Safety tests by Euro NCAP deemed the Soul to be 4 out of 5 stars falling back mainly on safety assist (due to lack of modern driving aids) and also on pedestrian safety.
The latest version of the car released in 2019 introduced the X trim that features a more rugged design and equipment capable of going off-road.
