26: Kia Soul
Korean automaker Kia has come a long way since its lowly induction to the U.S. market in 1994. Kia has marketed the Soul as an alternative to cheap compact cars often on the market. There are a few things about the current Soul that you should consider. The first of which is the CVT transmission, which attempts to be exciting at best.
The engine is also a carryover from the outgoing model, and it could use some improvement. The thing the Soul has going for it is the fact that it looks stylish. Very few vehicles look like the Soul, but that doesn’t mean most drivers won’t want to avoid it. There is also the fact that Kia offers an exceptional warranty, so if anything goes wrong with the car the company will generally repair it. Drivers shouldn’t be in it in the first place, however.
