What is better than a road trip with one of your blogging and real life besties? How about a road trip in a brand new gorgeous, chic, and cool Kia Soul?
Last week much to my enjoyment, Lolo from Crazy about My Baybah and I packed away a weekend worth of belongings and cute clothes into a 2012 Kia Soul and hit the road to Park City, Utah to attend the Evolution of Women in Social Media Conference.
While the trunk may have been a bit to small for a family of 4, for the two of us it worked just fine. You can see that two suitcases, and a few carry-on bags filled up the whole trunk.
We packed a cooler in the back seat and used the extra back seat room to hold our purses leaving the front with plenty of leg room.
Then with the push of a button we were off with a gorgeous Las Vegas sunrise to send us on our way!
Las Vegas, Nevada to Park City, Utah is 426 miles away and according to Google Maps is 6 hours 56 mins driving time.
The Kia Soul has a 12.7 gallon fuel tank and gets about 26/36 MGP City/HWY. WE fueled up 2 times on the way to EVO and then twice again on the way home. Both Lolo and I tend to be safe with it comes to fuel, and never had more than a 9 gallons to fill up.
The Kia Soul was very fun to drive. I really enjoyed the extra features that have been added to it like the infinity speakers, navigation system, and push button engine.
I think this car is perfect for a young high school, college, or post college grad. I would also recommend it for anyone without kids.
I did find the space in the car impractical for a family. As a family car, I can say my stroller would fill up the entire trunk space, and would make it so I would have to put groceries in the back seat, but if you didn’t have kids (who tend to make any space more cluttered), this would be a great car. It is a really fun alternative to your everyday boring four door car!
I do also have to give a shout out to the fabulous windshield wipers. On our way home from Park City while driving through the mountains, we encountered several severe downpours. This picture doesn’t do the rain justice, it was really coming down. It does however show how great the wipers are.
The Kia Soul has a great mix of functional and fun elements that make the car a blast to drive. Kia also offers a 10 year or 100,000 mile warranty that is standard with every Kia. While this car may not be a perfect fit for my growing family, I can see my mother or sister loving every inch of this car!
