Thanks to features like roof racks and generous storage space, the redesigned 2014 Kia Soul has been named the Active Lifestyle Vehicle of the Year.
This is the 2nd consecutive year that the 2014 Soul has been recognized for its versatility, complimented by the vehicle’s ride comfort and technology.
Considering that the 2014 Kia Soul is redesigned and updated, it appears that the engineers and experts have really hit the mark, again.
2014 Kia Soul is a Great Vehicle for Active People
The 10th annual Active Lifestyle Vehicle Awards was held in Chandler, Arizona, celebrating active individuals and the vehicles that help them live their exciting and engaging lives.
Michael Sprague, Kia’s executive vice president, said that the award is “strong evidence that our complete redesign of this iconic vehicle was successful”. He said that improvements came to the Soul’s ride, handling, and interior features and appointments. Most importantly, however, the Soul “lost none of its fun, funky, and young-at-heart personality”.
To appeal to active individuals, Kia has added roof racks to every model, complimenting the expansive storage space found in the Soul.
“Soul speaks to those who want a vehicle that offers iconic design and all the things that support a youthful and active lifestyle.”

The Kia Soul has a premium look and feel, with plenty of features and technology.
The quiet and comfortable cabin is enhanced by Kia’s UVO eServices, one of the most functional and popular infotainment systems available.
The Active Lifestyle Vehicle organization promotes communication between auto manufacturers and buyers with active lifestyles, such as bicyclists, kayakers, campers, and athletes.
The program was founded in 2004 and recognizes vehicles that help these people meet their personal needs.
Leaders at the Active Lifestyle Vehicle program complimented Kia for its support and participation of the event, and also had some very positive things to say about the Kia Soul.
“The Soul has always been an awesome choice for urbanites that need a car with a small footprint but also a versatile interior.”
- Nina Russin, Active Lifestyle Vehicle program founder
