2017 KIA Soul Turbo Interior, Engine Review

Wednesday, May 17th 2017. | KIA

Now 2017 KIA Soul Turbo have dropped a 1.6 liter turbocharged engine under the bonnet and created a warm hatchback spaceship thing.

whilst the 2017 KIA Soul Turbo or Sport if you live in America is a difficult thing to define the increase in performance certainly isn’t. Said 1.6 litre turbocharged engine produces 201 brake horsepower and 265 NM of torque. That’s enough for a respect will rush to 62 miles per hour in 7.5 seconds ago on to top speed 122 miles per hour.

The looks may be very unique but finished in a more subtle gray team like our test car2017 KIA Soul Turbo with red sporty detailing and 18-inch alloy wheels. I have to say that I think this one looks rather smart. the large headlights and rounded fog lights give it character as do the gloss finishes externally. the overall shape may well be a bit boxy the designers certainly thought outside of the box when putting pen to paper.

The 2017 KIA Soul Turbo interior is just as careful with landmarks such as the coward vents that support the speakers in the center of the dashboard. it sort of unconventional shapes and just about the only conventional things you’ll find in here is this flat bottom steering wheel and the 8-inch touchscreen infotainment display.

Said displayed nice and easy to use and supports Android auto and apple carplay. Sport models also get these nicely bolstered seats finished with orange trim their heated also. this trim level also gets a full-length glass panoramic roof which is nice on summer days because it opens as well.

the rear bench seats three and thanks to the utilitarian shape of the car there’s plenty of head and legroom for all three options. Boot space is 354 liters worthy for the rear seats were it’s 994. Now at low speeds the large alloy wheels and tweaks the suspension means the 2017 KIA Soul Turbo actually write a bit firmer than maybe you’d like it particularly something to potholes and bounces over road imperfections it’s not terrible but it could be better damped.

That says there is a trade-off in the form of actually much keener handling than what I was expecting the 2017 KIA Soul Turbo is particularly resistant to body roll which is impressive considering its height and there’s loads of grip on offer okay the steering’s a little bit like that you can be a bit precise with it and the relay so this car plate is it selectable drive mode so you push this button the dashboard changes we get a nice talk gauge as well as the turbo boost.

The 2017 KIA Soul Turbo comes with a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission that’s very savvy. Knows what it’s doing and it’s quite quick to respond have I would prefer a manual just to boost that driver engagement a little bit further. Switch the 2017 KIA Soul Turbo back over into its eco mode and kia claim that it emits 156 g/km of co2 and candy 40.9 MPG combined.

The new turbocharged 2017 KIA Soul Turbo sport is certainly an interesting car in just about every respect in certain going to be enough to get people talking in the car park if that’s what you’re looking for.

Edgy looks a pleasing drive and warm hatchback credentials things like here have done a pretty good job here at 23,000 250 pounds it injects a bit of soul into.
