Kia was so generous and let me drive one of their cars last weekend when I went to meet actor Shemar Moore of Criminal Minds. Driving around Los Angeles, CA is no joke as there are a lot of cars on the road and I knew I needed a car that not only fit the “LA look,” but one that I would feel safe in and could carry both mine and fellow blogger Jen’s (from The Mom Reviews) luggage.  When I learned that Kia would be sending me their 2013 Kia Soul, I knew we were destined for some fun!

The Kia Soul was unlike any car I have ever driven. The inside has such a sporty and fun look and Kia definitely put so much detail into the Soul. Here is a short video of the interior:

Getting to see the speaker lights in person was something I couldn’t wait to experience. I couldn’t wait for night to hit so I could see it in action. There are two settings to choose from: Music or Mood. You even have the option to turn the speaker lights off all together if that isn’t your thing.

I had mine set to mood. You can see it in action here:

How cool is that? Seriously feels like your own mini club inside the Kia Soul.

Storage space was also a huge selling point for me. While it may not be as fun as changing light colors on a speaker, it is definitely a necessity to most people. This compact Kia Soul will surprise you. We were able to store both Jen and my luggage in the cargo area and still had room. There is also a secret storage area under the floor of the cargo area that is completely impressive.

The secret storage area is perfect for all your valuables, extra clothing, diaper bags, jumper cables and anything you wish to store.

Get ready to roll with the Kia Soul as it starts at just $14,400. You can learn more about the Kia Soul by visiting their website at:


*Huge thank you to Kia for providing me with a Soul to review free of charge while I was in Los Angeles. Opinions are all my own.
