Kia Soul is the Best Family Car

When you’re trying to buy a new car, it’s hard to know where to start. One great resource is to use trusted lists by sources like Car and Driver or Edmunds to find vehicles that are built to fit your needs. For a decade now, Edmunds has paired with Parents magazine to compose one such list: Best Family Car. And guess who earned an award for “Best Family Cars of 2017?” Why, none other than the Kia Soul, one of our favorite, versatile SUVs.

Kia Soul best family car

But what do Edmunds and Parents magazine use to determine the best family car? According to Parents Editor-in-Chief Liz Vaccariello, the best family car is one that caters to both parents and children in things like safety and comfort. The Kia Soul has both of these things covered, and much more.

The vehicle’s spacious cabin is made even more comfortable knowing that safety features like the standard Hill Start Assist and the available Lane Departure Warning are present to help drivers stay in control and to keep families protected. The Kia Soul is also well-equipped for in-cabin entertainment, an important amenity to have for family trips of any length. The 2017 Kia Soul features things like Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, plus Steering-Wheel-Mounted Controls which make the inevitable multitasking easier.

With a very affordable price tag and an engine that sips gas, the Kia Soul is also family-friendly from a financial standpoint. We’re happy to have our own inventory of Kia Soul SUVs on the lot at Gossett Kia South, so if you’re looking for the best car for your family, stop in and give the Kia Soul a try today.

Reasons to Buy a Kia

If you’re in the market for a new car, you’re probably weighing your options about which car brand you should buy. We hope that brand is Kia, and we’ve put together some reasons why.

Value is the biggest reason you should buy a Kia. Kia vehicles are some of the least expensive on the market and still offer tons of standard and optional technology. Despite their low price, Kias are high-quality and packed with amenities.

Kia also offers a fantastic warranty of 10 years or 100,000 miles for the powertrain as well as 5 years or 60,000 miles of bumper-to-bumper coverage, 5 years of roadside assistance, and more. Every Kia buyer gets access to these awesome benefits.

Another great thing about Kia vehicles is their hybrids. As one of the first brands to hop on the hybrid bandwagon, Kia’s Optima hybrid has already found its footing in the power department with a turbocharged engine.

Unique design is another thing Kia brings to the table. The boxy Kia Soul is one of the most popular cars in America and is one of the biggest cars on the EV market thanks in large part to its interesting styling.
