    DETROIT -- Six of 12 small cars performed well in front-end crash tests conducted by an insurance industry group, but some popular models fared poorly in the safety evaluations.
    Only the two-door and four-door Honda Civic models earned the top rating of "good" in the tests done by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. The Dodge Dart, Ford Focus, Hyundai Elantra and the 2014 Scion tC got "acceptable" ratings.
    But popular models such as the Chevrolet Cruze and Sonic and the Volkswagen Beetle got "marginal" ratings, while the Nissan Sentra and the Kia Soul and 2014 Kia Forte each were rated "poor."

    I see conflicting or vague information on this so hopefully someone can clear it up for me.

    For 2014, can you get a stick shift in the + model, and if so does the stick shift plus come with cruise control? In other words, can you get a manual transmission Soul with factory cruise in 2014?

    Thank you.

    simply answer - no, it was dropped for 2014 due to low demand (about 1%) Check out this site
  • Ok, thank you. Probably rules it out for me, then. Appreciate it.

    your welcome, maybe as an alternative the all new 2014 Forte 5, will have MT in their new SX turbo version. Full details, except pricing is available here

    Did you know you can manual shift the 6-speed auto in the Soul?
  • Cool, was not aware of the turbo manual Forte 5 for '14. I will check it out.

    Ok, I went from a 2006 Hyundai Azera Ltd (used) to a new 2012 Kia Soul ! in 2012. I didn't think I'd run into any problems with a brand new car, so I took out a 3 year lease. I'm 18 months into my lease and now I'm starting to have some odd problems, with the car either accelerating or deccelerating on it's own. I tend to stay away from highways when this seems to be happening. I am now going to be taking it to the dealership tomorrow for the 3rd time. First time, they reset the adaptive learned settings and 2nd time they put in some more transmission fluid. Tonight, it decided it was going to hold it's breath while I was driving and then the check engine light ( or whatever they are now calling it) came on. Has anyone obtained a successful resolution to this problem? I saw at least 3 complaints on the NHTSA site (only thru 9-30-13 due to gov't shutdown). But can't tell if anyone got it safely fixed.

    What's your favorite feature of the Soul? I see a fair number of them on the roads here in PA
