Standard equipment includes air conditioning, cruise control, heated front seats, electrically folding and heated mirrors and electric windows. There is also iPod connectivity, Bluetooth, a smart key with start/stop button and rear parking sensors.

It comes with the 1.6 CRDi 126PS engine and a six-speed manual gearbox, averaging a claimed 57.6mpg with emissions of 129g/km meaning a VED band of D - currently £100 a year. Insurance is group 19 while the Soul comes with Kia's seven-year warranty which can be transferred to subsequent owners.
