Chicago Nissan, Gurnee Nissan, Mundelein Nissan

Local urban drivers know that they need a dynamic, versatile vehicle that can handle the strains of city driving. When you visit your local Chicago Kia Soul dealership, try the all-new 2010 Soul on for size. You might find that the brand new Kia has a knack for driving under the adverse conditions that city driving can present.

The Kia Soul comes with a variety of options for the engine and handling. Available are two inline four-cylinder engines—one a 1.6-liter that delivers 122 horsepower and 115 pound-feet of torque; the other a 2-liter that pumps out 142 horsepower and 137 pound-feet of torque. All of the vehicles are front-wheel driven.

Both of these engines integrate Continuously Variable Valve Timing; what’s more, both are tied to a standard five-speed manual gearbox. The engine options provide solid acceleration, fluid steering and a compliant ride. With options like these, your local Gurnee dealership is teeming with customers looking to test drive the 2010 Kia Soul.

Driving the Kia Soul is hip, fun and stylish. In an urban environment, the Soul is compact, sleek and zippy—the perfect combination for drivers trying to get around the big city. Making a trip to your Libertyville dealership is an easy decision once you’ve had a chance to check out some of the safety features offered with the highly affordable Soul.

In fact, the Kia Soul was recently voted “Top Safety Pick” by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). Additionally, the vehicle won laud as one of Kelley Blue Book’s “Top 10 Back-to-School Cars” for outstanding reliability, acclaimed safety features, phenomenal affordability, general practicality, crisp handling, comprehensive warranty, spacious interior and great fuel economy. It’s no wonder your Gurnee dealership is bustling with potential Chicago Kia Soul drivers.

The 2010 Kia Soul is stylish, too. The vehicle’s boxy top bleeds into a striking front detailing and employs attractive angular shapes that set the vehicle off against other, less unique and ornate cars oftentimes found in an urban setting.

The car’s interior is roomy and can seat five adults comfortably, offering more than enough head, knee and legroom. Fold seats down for convenient extra storage. But large, nearly vertical hatchback is the key storage factor; urban drivers can fit a miscellany of items through the wide opening. Make sure to check out the storage room for yourself when you get a chance to visit a Gurnee dealership.

The Kia Soul’s affordability is one of its greatest differentiators for such a quality ride. The basic Soul package starts at $13,300, while the Soul Plus ups the ante a bit at $14,950. The Soul Sport is set at $16,950, and the Soul Exclaim starts at $17,900. Even a Kia Soul with all the trimmings should set you back less than $19,000. If you visit your local Chicago Kia Soul dealer, you might even be able haggle a bit to get that price exactly where you like it.

Stop into a local Gurnee dealership and learn to love city driving again.
