Car Profiles - Kia Soul

KIA SOUL

For its second generation model, the Soul gets a standard diesel engine without retaining the funky looks it is known for. While the engine is an advantage, price is something wanting.

The Good: Ample interior room
The Bad: Pricey for such a car

Price Range: P1,020,000-P1,090,000
Our Rating: ***
