2010 Kia Soul

Designing a box type sport vehicles is usually challenging for car manufacturers. Case in point: Scion xB and Honda Element. The concept of the car is not that bad but the design should make you think twice if you're looking for something that can impress and perform.
Apparently, the 2010 Kia Soul Sport has learned a lot from its competitors. The Korean manufacturer was able to come up with a relatively better designed box sports car. Instead of a strict box idea that did not work for Scion xB and Honda Element, Kia Soul Sport has some curves on the side.
As expected, the interior of the Kia Soul is very impressive. There is enough legroom for the passenger and the driver. The control panel even comes with impressive features such as Bluetooth and USB Docks. Sirius Satellite Radio coupled with 6-speaker system will make everyone inside have an audio experience rarely found in this type of vehicle. The only problem with the interior is the limited cargo space which was sacrificed for the legroom.
The downside of the 2010 Kia Soul Sport is its engine and controls. What you'll get is 2.0Liter 4-cylinder engine. This type of engine only gives you 142 horsepower which means you might have some trouble when you’re dealing with heavy loads. It's only limited to 5-speed (manual) and the higher gears are relatively slower to react. But it's not a car that you wanted to race so you’ll never experience the trouble of losing control while on the road.
In terms of safety, the car comes with the highest rating. For sturdiness, Kia offers 5 year or 60,000-mile warranty. And the price is only $18,000 complete with gadgets mentioned.
