Kia Soul Named Coolest Car Under $20,000

2018 Kia Soul White

We’re excited to announce that the hatchback favorite of Shiloh drivers has taken home another award. Kelley Blue Book just announced that the 2018 Kia Soul has arrived on its list of the 10 Coolest Cars Under $20,000 yet again. No wonder we’ve seen so many on the streets of Mascoutah and Smithton.

Fun to Drive, Fun to Own described the Soul as “fun to drive and fun to own,” which over one million drivers agree with — the Soul just crested the 7 figure mark, delivering impressive sales since its 2009 debut.

If you find yourself wondering “didn’t I hear about this last year,” you’re not wrong. This is the 7th consecutive year that the Soul has been on the Kelley Blue Book list, standing out from the crowd with its unique combination of interior versatility, exterior style, and long list of features (see what we mean in our Soul vs. Fit comparison).

Orth Hedrick, the Vice President of Product Planning at Kia Motors America, had this to say about the good news:

“Soul’s fun and funky personality continues to shine as reflected by being named to Kelley Blue Book’s Coolest Cars list for the seventh consecutive year. The versatile hatchback continues to provide consumers with a fun-to-own vehicle equipped with many convenience features.”

Executive Editor for Kelley Blue Book, Michael Harley, said:

“Unmistakable styling, with a youthful demeanor, makes the Kia Soul a standout … This is how you do automotive coolness.”
