The Kia Soul is a subcompact crossover SUV made by Kia that most definitely stands out from its competitors due to its overall quirky and yet appealing design and of course, the practicality that it provides its users.

Initially introduced in 2008 at the Paris Motor Show, the Kia Soul crossover has since gone through three generations and it even has an EV version available since 2014 in Europe, Norther American and even some countries in Central America.

While its looks might be too unique for some, the MPV/SUV blend of the Kia Soul provides a lot of room and a lot of possible application for the vehicle but let us first talk about the thing that enables the Soul to stand out: its looks.

Kia Soul 2019 on the road

Here it is folks, the boxy yet quite sexy Kia Soul

Outside, one’s first impressions of the Kia Soul especially the third-generation 2019 version is that it is boxy. While this might not be to everyone’s liking, it is actually the Soul’s boxiness which gives it this youthful appeal.

Upfront, the Soul has that familiar H shaped grille typical of Kia vehicles. Surrounding the grille is just the right amount of chrome which further adds to its looks. The headlamps that are equipped with daytime running LEDs and projector headlights do not clash with the overlook at all and in fact, complements the design.

While the upper part of the Soul's front fascia is quintessentially Kia, the lower part makes it look more aggressive.

Towards the sides, one’s eyes will immediately behold the overall boxy shape of the car. For the current year model of the Soul, Kia has given it black colored pillars which provides an illusion of a floating roof which is become quite popular among cars today. Up-market cars mind you.

Also of note are the fender flares, the 18-inch wheels, high ground clearance and the lower character lines which drives in the fact that the Soul is indeed an SUV.

While having very interesting front and side profiles, the rear of the  Kia Soul 2019 simply stands out. Here you can find vertically aligned LED taillights and glass, the rectangular panel on the trunk door which does not look like a window at all as it seamlessly integrates the door to the body of the car.

Also of note is the black rear bumper which holds two reflectors. Looks neat overall.

As a sort of MPV/SUV combo, the Kia Soul offers tons of interior room. There’s plenty of headspace and leg space and the trunk can hold a lot. With the rear seats folded, the Kia Soul can even further enlarge that already cavernous trunk.

Aside from being spacious, the Kia Soul’s interior is also a really well-designed space. The way Kia has designed each and every single element of the interior from the steering wheel to the center console are curvy and are of course ergonomically arranged.

The Kia Soul is also equipped with a 2DIN audio with a touchscreen multimedia head unit and a navigation system. The Soul however still has a CD player, USB and Auxiliary ports, a decent sound system, and an AM/FM radio.

Backing up the uniquely attractive looks of the Kia Soul is an equally powerful diesel engine: a 1.6 liter inline-4 CRDi capable of making 128 horsepower and 260 NM of torque. Power is sent to the front wheels with either a 6-speed manual or a 7-speed automatic.

For safety, the Kia Soul 2019 gets two airbags at the front for the driver and front passenger as well as child safety locks, an anti-lock braking system, EBD, stability control and crash sensors.

Currently, the Kia Soul competes in the Philippine car market with the likes of the Honda BR-V and the Ford Ecosport.

It is already known though that Kia will be dropping the Soul in favor of a newer, better crossover and even the Kia Philippine site reflects this as Soul has already been removed from their vehicle lineup on the said site.

Regardless, you can still get a brand new Kia Soul and you can still view models of the aforementioned crossover yourself from one of Kia’s numerous dealerships spread around the Philippines. A new version of the Soul might pop out though at any time so watch out for that.

III. Why would you want to buy a Kia Soul 2019 Philippines?

Despite the aging platform, the Kia Soul by all rights is still a very good choice when you’re in the market for a vehicle capable of providing a good comfortable riding experience for your family as well as the added benefit of having a large cargo space.

Another strange thing to the Soul that you might not find desirable is that the variants only come with a diesel engine. While that in itself has its own advantages, some people for one reason or another actually prefer gasoline engines.

The current diesel engine for the Soul performs well and enables the Soul to pass other vehicles with ease.

And lastly, the overall styling and looks of the Soul might be too loud or too strange for some people. Other than that, it’s a perfectly good vehicle that can fit five adult-sized persons.

IV. About Kia Philippines

Established in 1944 as the Kyungsung Precision Industry, the now 2nd largest automobile manufacturer initially made bicycles. In 1952, they then changed their name to Kia Industries. Later in 1957, they made Honda licensed motorcycles and eventually cars in 1974. In 1995, Kia sold a record 24,740 cars. This of course was the result of their expansion to the United States in the 90’s.

During the Asian Financial crisis in 1997, Kia was hit hard. What saved them though is another Korean car manufacturer by the name of Hyundai. And alas, both of these companies survived by exchanging ownership with Hyundai acquiring around 51% of Kia. In turn, Kia in the present owns around 22 Hyundai Motor subsidiaries.

Kia is now developing with 32 dealerships in the Philippines

In the Philippines, Kia was brought in by the Columbian Autocar Corporation, otherwise known as CAC. In 2018 however, the Ayala Group will be acquiring 60% of the company. Nevertheless, CAC, and by extension Kia made cars, have shown to be selling well in the Philippines.

Today, Kia Philippines’ model line-up consists of the Sportage, the Grand Carnival, Picanto, Sorento, Rio, Soluto, Stinger, Forte, and several commercial purpose vehicles. For more details about every single Kia model, check out our Kia car review section.

Kia started its operation in our country in 1994. Thanks to the support from Columbian Autocar Corporation (CAC) – the exclusive distributor of Kia Motors Philippines, the Korean automaker has quickly become a familiar brand to many Pinoy customers with the sales success of the Kia Pride.
