Kia Soul 2010


On March 2, 2018

Maintenance Costs R 3,000.00 / Year

Insurance Premium R 1,000.00 / Month

Fuel Consumption 12 L/100km

One might argue that a bakers car, given the 2010 Kia Soul resembling somewhat of a loaf of bread, is anything but desirable. You would of course, be wrong.

The Kia Soul is a rather underrated vehicle in the South African market- particularly if you have an undying love affair with SUV's but not necessarily the budget or skill set to manoeuvre such a vehicle in a city whose streets seem to narrow year on year- Cape Town here's looking at you.

Although I do have to mention, should you be looking to gain any level of street cred with your new ride, opt for nothing earlier than a 2014 model, thank me later.

On to my personal experience.

Being a Jeep Wrangler fan, I was a little unimpressed that my student budget (at the time) would mean I would have to settle for something a little more in my price range. By pure luck, I had managed to find a really good deal on a second hand 2010 Kia Soul 1.6 High Spec.

Two weeks later, with the paperwork complete, my new used car was in my garage. Side note- did I mention this was during the time I was about to move to Cape Town?

With my new job waiting and my car itching to burn some rubber, I loaded my belongings (the space in this vehicle is incredible with a rough 670-liter storage capacity).

Fast forward to two years of ownership, I have a list of pros and cons on the 2010 Kia Soul.

Pros:

1. The perfect buffer between hatchback and full-size SUV.
2. Comfortable ride- the leg room in the back is also a huge plus.
3. Plenty of storage space (included is a safety net to keep those wayward objects from moving around).
4. Steering wheel controls (if you have never owned a vehicle with these, they will change the way you shop for vehicles).
5. Good build quality, Kia put a lot of attention into this.
6. The automatic version has two low ranges to help with towing or climbing.

Cons:

1. Fuel consumption- the fuel consumption is rather high, I found my real life L/KM where more than advertised. Particularly if you are speeding up a slowing down constantly due to traffic.

2. Styling- prior to the 2014 iteration, the Kia Soul isn't going to win any best-dressed awards. As a student, I found parking a few blocks away from campus saved me any humiliation.

3. Service- a large reason to move to another brand was due to the levels of service I received from Kia. Four years on and I am still waiting for my spare key.

4. Handling- if you live in a windy city, you would be forgiven for thinking you somehow managed to land up in a Tuk Tuk. The car on winding roads (particularly in windy conditions) feels very top heavy. Slow and steady with this one.

5. Transmission- I often felt the transmission on this vehicle wasn't tuned to the best of its capabilities. The vehicle would often shudder when you needed to hit the pedal a little harder under certain driving conditions.

All said and done, a great beginning to the Soul range from Kia.
