  1. You do not need AWD on the Kia Soul SX. I put Yokohama all terrain tires, the same tires made to go on the Subaru Forester Outback. They are 16-inch tires, steel wheels which fit the Soul like the 18″ wheels & tires that come with it.

    One gets a better ride than the thumpy stock tires and I have been driving off road & in the snow ever since with great traction.

  2. Looking to find the colors available for the 2018 Kia Soul base models. I have a 2015 and want to buy a 2018 as my last car. Love it, it’s great in the snow in the northwestern part of Maine.
