Kia Soul a Scion xB killer?

talk about turning the game around, the new kia soul is now available on dealer lots in parts of the country and reviews are starting to pour in. the designer of this vehicle also designed the current gen audi tt a few years ago and has once again won the red-dot design award, just as he did with the audi. the award is nothing to sneeze at either because it is a competition from vehicles all around the world, not just america; so that includes models that we cant even get in our borders. the kia soul is now available on kias web site as well and for $16,490 you get some cool standard features like bluetooth, kickin sound system, even 18 inch wheels from the factory! a sunroof is available/standard on the soul, not so on the scion. in kia tradition, the souls equipment package is a little crazy as the soul sport (the top level soul) isn't the fully loaded model, the soul ! (exclaim) is as it features the bluetooth radio and standard sunroof, these options are not available on the sport. when i get back ill be sure to drive a soul but reviews are already lookin' good for this little city ute!

ps: if you do decide to check kia's soul out at kiausa.com and build one, notice toward the bottom it says "Kia Soul 4x2 - Highlighted Features"

could an awd variant be on its way??????????????????????

i heard from a hyundai that kia gets all the parts that arnt good enough to go on a hyundai they also don't do much r&d on them.

funny story my aunt and uncle bought a sedona van from kia. 30,000 Km later while they were 8 hours away from a dealer the power steering hose blew up. they was nobody in the town that they were in to fix it. so my uncle took a bus back to Saskatoon and went to have a "word" with kia here. they said that it has happened before a few times to other ppl but they don't stock the hose and there wasn't one at any dealer in north america so a week later from korea one arrives and gets installed.

Yep, the KIA wins, as being a bigger FAIL then the Scion XB...

We shouldn't leave out the Honda Elephant from this comparison:

i like it alot, but i also liked the old scion xb, ya know, before they camry-ized it. i like the honda element and the upcoming nissan cube. im a big fan of the new kia soul. if the focus wasnt so new it would be gone. there isnt a whole lot for kias as far as aftermarket. teh spectra did get kia on some tuners radar but it didnt get much. maybe the soul will get some luvin... even the rio which it is sort of based on
