2020 Kia Soul GT-Line Review & Drive

The Kia Soul may have been late to the box car party a decade ago, but for 2020 Kia has given the Soul a very extensive overhaul. While the original competition has left the market years ago, Kia continues to sell over 100,000 units every year making the Soul one of the best-selling vehicles in their lineup. The 2020 model has big improvements in ride and handling, interior design, technology, and fuel economy. The new GT-Line also takes some style cues from the Kia Stinger and while AWD is still not available, most Soul buyers didn’t seem to mind.

Would the Soul be your pick over the Nissan Kicks, Jeep Renegade, Honda HR-V, Toyota C-HR, Kia Niro, Fiat 500X, Chevrolet Trax or even a Mazda CX-3? Let us know in the comments below
