TrueDelta Reviews the Materials And Workmanship of the 2018 Kia Soul

2018 Kia Soul Materials And Workmanship: Neutral
2017 For a relatively inexpensive car, the Kia Soul has a solid, nicely finished interior. Unusual for a car with a starting price well below $20,000, the instrument panel and the door panels are mostly composed of soft-touch materials. In the past, Minis have seemed much cheaper inside than their semi-premium pricing suggested they ought to have. The interior of the new Countryman, like that of the second-gen Clubman, is a big step up from that of its predecessor. Unlike in the past, the materials and build quality roughly befit the car's price. They're a little better than those in the Kia, as they should be given the price difference between the two. Compared to those in the Kia, the Countryman's knobs and switches in particular have a more upscale look and feel. The Kia's controls don't so much look cheap as boringly pedestrian. They don't do anything to make the driving experience special the way the Mini's do. The Mini might have its largest advantage in the time-honored door-shut test. The Countryman's door latches shut with a fair amount of the solid, reassuring "bank vault" sound and feel that has sold many German-engineered cars. While the Soul's doors don't sound or feel tinny or flimsy when pulled shut, they don't stand out to the positive side in this area the way the Mini's do, either. Overall, while the materials and build quality of the Soul are very good for a car in its price range, those of the more expensive Countryman are better. full 2017 Kia Soul review
