Kia Soul

Is the Kia Soul an SUV?

Folks from Boulder City and Pahrump have had great things to say about the new Kia Soul, but this versatile vehicle still has many drivers wondering, “Is the Kia Soul an SUV?” There’s no mystery here: Although the Kia Soul is sometimes described as a hatchback, it technically qualifies as a subcompact SUV.

That’s right: The Kia Soul is indeed an SUV. It falls within a segment which combines SUV cargo capacity with the convenience and practicality of a compact car, and according to the U.S. News, it’s at the very top of the segment.

Kia Soul Cargo Space

Unlike some other sport utility vehicles, the Kia Soul does not offer all-wheel drive. However, when it comes to cargo capacity, this Kia more than lives up to the high standard set by other models in its segment.

Split-folding seats come standard across the lineup, so it’s easy to adjust your Kia Soul interior dimensions and make more room when you need it. With the seats up or down, the Kia Soul cargo space gives it a big advantage over rivals:

  • Kia Soul Cargo Space Behind Rear Row – 24.2 cubic feet
  • Kia Soul Cargo Space Behind 1st Row – 62 cubic feet

Kia Soul Interior Dimensions

No matter where you find yourself seated, you won’t have any trouble spreading out and enjoying yourself inside this cabin. The Kia Soul interior dimensions allow up to five passengers to sit in total comfort.

Here’s what you can expect in terms of headroom, legroom, and shoulder room:

  • Kia Soul Headroom (Front) – 39.4 inches
  • Kia Soul Headroom (Rear) – 39.5 inches
  • Kia Soul Legroom (Front) – 41.1 inches
  • Kia Soul Legroom (Rear) – 38.8 inches
  • Kia Soul Shoulder Room (Front) – 55.5 inches
  • Kia Soul Shoulder Room (Rear) – 54.7 inches
