Kia has been impressing drivers with its excellent value and unique designs for years. Now the manufacturer is finally getting some formal recognition, as Kelley Blue Book ranked the 2013 Kia Soul as one of the coolest cars you can get for under $18,000.
Set apart by its fun design, spacious interior and excellent technological inclusions, the Soul is making waves in the auto industry. It offers plenty of special features for a relatively affordable price, and if that weren't enough, it's also a reliable option that can help lower the accrued costs of auto repair and vehicle maintenance.
"The Soul ... quickly established a reputation as the spunkiest car in the Kia lineup, and now KBB has recognized it as one of the coolest vehicles on the market," said Michael Sprague, a Kia vice president. "Kia has always strived to provide customers with value, style and substance, and the Soul fulfills that promise with an extensive roster of standard features and unique design that has become iconic."
Drivers across the U.S. are starting to take notice of Kia's offerings. It is one of only three brands to see its American sales increase over the past four years, and models like the Soul are a major reason why.
