If you want one of the best vehicles in the industry, then the 2017 Kia Soul is the car for you. This uniquely designed subcompact was recently named a 2017 Consumer Guide Automotive Best Buy award winner in its segment. This is the third year in a row the Soul has earned this prestigious honor.

“People gravitate toward the Soul because of its head-turning style, extensive feature content, and excellent value. Its practicality makes it a perfect fit for just about every type of lifestyle,” said Orth Hedrick, vice president for product planning Kia Motors America. “Being recognized by Consumer Guide Automotive for a third consecutive year proves the Soul continues to be a crowd favorite, and with the new turbocharged version offered for 2017, we anticipate its popularity will surge to new heights.”

To earn recognition as a Best Buy award winner, the Soul had to beat out the best vehicles in its segment. It surpassed the competition in both price and value, showcasing just how great this Kia model is. The vehicle’s funky personality, peppy new turbocharged engine, and desirable features all helped it come out ahead.

The Soul’s newest 1.6-liter turbocharged engine is primed and ready to make this quirky car an even better buy. With 201 horsepower and 28 miles per gallon combined, the Soul Turbo model will have more power without sacrificing fuel efficiency. The 2017 model also comes available with convenience features like Rear Cross Traffic Alert and Blind Spot Detection. There is also a standard UVO3 infotainment system on the 2017 Soul Exclaim models, which has integrated Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.
