Travel Smart With Style: 2015 Kia Soul Car Review


I was provided the 2015 Kia Soul for four days in exchange for my review. 
All opinions expressed here are my own.

Two weeks ago I took a trip back to my home state of Texas to attend T.D. Jakes Megafest conference in Dallas Aug 19 - 23. While visiting with family and friends, networking and feeding my soul with inspirational messages (video recap here) I was able to be a part of the #DriveKia experience navigating through the "Big D" rolling in the 2015 Kia Soul. The Kia Soul is a sleek, stylish and affordable (only $15K base) crossover vehicle that I was looking forward to testing out during my four day trip around the city. Known for it's unique exterior, advanced technology and fun driving experience it's no wonder the 2015 Kia Soul was ranked highest in class  by J.D. Power. So if you are in the market for a new car this fall, check out my favorite Kia Soul features:

Steering Wheel Technology

Technology - My #1 favorite feature I loved about the Kia Soul was how simple and sleek the interior technology was. I was seriously so caught up in playing with all the features that it took me a minute to pull out the lot and start driving:) Having rented dozens of cars before when I was in corporate sales, it usually takes me forever to figure out how to work stuff in cars, however the Kia Soul technology was very simple to use. I plugged my phone in the USB port, synced my phone with the Bluetooth, programmed my satellite radio stations and plugged my destination into navigation in less than 3 minutes. So quick and easy!

Comfort - Riding in the Kia Soul felt so good! The seats were comfy and cozy. I was originally concerned driving around on leather seats in the triple digit heat of a Texas summer but I quickly discovered the Kia Soul had a fix for that..ventilated seats circulating cool or warm air..HALLELUJAH.

Style - The "Alien" green exterior, bright Xenon headlights, and sleek panoramic sunroof were stylish features that made feel like one of the "cool kids" rolling in the Kia Soul.

Space - As a crossover and multi purpose vehicle the Soul was very spacious. I had a chance to catch up with my bestie, her hubby and my 5 year old goddaughter for breakfast while in Dallas. My goddaughter immediately jumped in the large truck space and made herself comfy. The seats let down so it would be perfect for a road trip, camping trip or drive in movie! There was plenty of leg room to make for a comfortable ride for my besties 6 foot husband and to fit their entire family and some extra luggage.
