The Kia Soul Quantum could be described as 'tremendous' and 'boring'. Some might argue 'fun' and 'dull' – or 'everyday' and 'out of this world'. Why? Because the Quantum has a split personality. On one hand - like lots of modest vehicles – it has five doors, five seats, and a spacious 340-litre hatchback-style boot. It is available with a couple of everyday 1.6-litre engines too, including a 138bhp petrol unit and a 126bhp diesel. But these forgettable facts fail to capture the spirit of this memorable mile muncher. The Soul looks and feels like something special, something unique - even though it is only a pint- sized hatchback. For whatever reason this vehicle feels like more than the sum of its parts.

The Kia Soul Quantum has more x-factor than most of the Soul range too. It is, after all, one of the 'Originals' designs conceived in the 'spirit of a fashion collection'. As such, it has striking eighteen-inch black alloy wheels, chrome door handles, and titanium silver paintwork. No wonder it looks tremendous. This game of two halves also has heated black leather seats, climate control, reversing sensors, and LED daytime running lights. This complements the spacious cabin, secure handling, reasonable ride, low running costs, and seven-year warranty. What we have then is a vehicle that is easy to live with everyday - mixed with a fashion statement that feels unique and special. Long like the Soul Optimum.
