Kelley Blue Book's KBB.com has listed the Kia Soul as among the 10 best back-to-school cars this year, a post on the Kiefer Kia website said.
Kelley Blue Book editors studied new car that has a fair purchase price under $20,000, eventually culling the list down to 10 chioces based on safety, style and value, the posting said.
The editors listed the Kia Soul as a "practical, feature-filled, respectable small car," the posting said.
The Kia Soul is available with three different trim levels: Soul Base, Soul Plus and Soul Exclaim. All trim levels offer Bluetooth connectivity, an updated sound system and 16-inch alloy wheels. Other available options include a technology package, a primo package and a convenience package, as well as an audio upgrade.
