More On The Kia Soul
The Soul has been widely successful since its release and has won numerous awards. Kelly Blue Book named it one of the five greatest automotive deals because of the high quality of the car and features for the price point.

There is no doubt that the Kia Soul is a great little car. Anyone who owns one will tell you that.
The Kia Soul Hamsters
Perhaps one of the greatest advertising campaigns of all times, the Kia hamsters drove sales of the Soul. With the “A New Way To Roll” campaign, they quickly gained the attention of younger audiences. There was no mistaking who Kia was targeting with this car and with this advertising campaign. One look at the dress of the hamsters and the choice of music said that it was all about youth. Nielson awarded the commercials automotive ad of the year and they are the only auto maker to be added to the Madison Avenue Walk of Fame, an advertising honor.
