So for the past week I’ve been test driving the new 2014 KIA Soul, you know.. the hamster car? I got so excited when I found out we were getting that model, :). I thought I was completely in love with our Hyundai, until they came to take back the KIA. It was so sad seeing it go! We had an amazing week driving it and checking it out. This Kale Green colored beauty was so much fun to drive and was loaded with tech!

The inside of this car was gorgeous, it was by far the fanciest car I have ever driven. It had everything! Even heated (and cooled) seats! I mean, come on. You can make your seat COLD! The screens were top-notch and the sunroof blew my 2 year old’s mind. He loved it (Click here to see a video).

I mean, isn’t it beautiful? And it drove so smooth – it really was fun taking it out at night because the interior of the car would light up with the music you were playing! Very cool! We took our car all over for the week – to the park, the grocery store, William drove it to work, we just wanted to drive it everywhere! One of the main benefits of this car is the safety, I felt incredibly comfortable driving around with my kids, and that’s huge. Like I mentioned before, it’s got an overall 5-star crash safety rating.


Driving this car for one week has made me re-think what I’d like in an automobile. The next car we get just might be this one, that’s how much we loved it!

So, what do you think?

Is this a car that you would like to drive?
