Fuel consumption < 8.5 L/100km
The Car Guide rating 84%(view ratings)
Despite looking like a cool little truck, the Kia Soul is still not available with all-wheel drive. On the bright side, it offers a fun drive and makes outstanding use of interior space. The base engine is a 2.0-litre four-cylinder that produces 147 horsepower. The Soul can also be had with a fully electric system that delivers 291 pound-feet of torque and a range of nearly 400 kilometres, making it one of the best green cars on the market.
