Ever since I watched those cute Hamster commercials for the Kia Soul, I just knew that I wanted to test this car out. And for my weekend getaway trip to Tampa, I was giving the opportunity to experience the 2015 Kia Soul. Not only was I excited but my children were overly excited to ride in this cool lime green car.
The 2015 UVO eServices is an incredible service that I had fun playing around with. For 2015, UVO eServices offers four new features: Geo-fencing, Speed Alert, Curfew Alert and Driving Score. Additionally, with the introduction of the Kia App store, select apps can be
downloaded for free from iTunesor Google Play. The Kia app connector is now available for partnership with the content community, including Pandora, iHeart Radio and Yelp. Many more new technologies for comfort and convenience are featured in the new UVO system, including Siri “Eyes Free and Local Search – powered by Google – for finding locations, addresses and points of interest. Sirius XM Travel Link, offering access to traffic, weather, fuel prices, sports scores, stock information and movie times.
Most of the UVO functions were accessible through my iPhone which made my driving my experience that much better. Another feature that we really enjoyed were the inside lights that were in sync with the music being played. The 2015 Kia Soul is GREAT on gas as well. The vehicle was delivered to me with a full tank and I drove it all the way to Tampa without having to fill up.
My overall experience with the Kia Soul was one for the books. I definitely recommend purchasing this fully loaded hatchback. With 3 kids, it was more than enough room for us!
