We already know the Kia Soul is an outstanding vehicle, but if you still need some convincing, you can ask the judges of the Active Lifestyle Vehicle of the Year awards. They recently named the Kia Soul the winner of the Urban category for the fifth consecutive year! Want to know more? Keep reading for additional information!

The founder of the Active Lifestyle Vehicle program, Nina Russin, specifically cited the affordability of the vehicle, as well as it’s spacious interior and the small footprint it has. She says buyers are looking for a vehicle that fits their active lifestyle, but is also affordable.

The 2016 Kia Soul has a variety of standard features like full power accessories, driver-selectable steering settings, Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity, and a six-speaker sound system with satellite radio. It has 19 cubic feet of cargo room behind the rear seatbacks and when you fold down the 60/40 split rear seatbacks, you add 61 cubic feet of space.

“Winning the Active Lifestyle Vehicle award for the fifth consecutive year is a clear indication that the Soul makes a great companion for urbanites who are constantly on the go,” said Orth Hedrick, vice president of product planning, KMA. “Its unique combination of style, fun-to-drive attitude, extensive feature content, and practicality make the Soul a crowd favorite, while the Cadenza’s upscale design, ample interior, and advanced convenience features make it a fierce competitor in the full-size sedan segment.”
