2014 Soul! shown. Expected Fall 2013.

    Who could forget the iconic Kia hamsters dancing and swaying to the beat in their legendary commercials?  The good news is that they are back to introduce the new 2014 Soul!  They have totally transformed themselves into lean, mean, head-turning machines in order to truly represent the new Soul.  You can watch them hit the gym and work out to Lady Gaga’s latest anthem, “Applause.”

    Some of the features of the new 2014 Kia Soul include include AC, power locks and windows with driver-side express, satellite radio, USB, Bluetooth, stability control, privacy glass and hill start assist. Extra-cost options include 16-inch alloy wheels, cruise control with steering-wheel controls, a center console, rear armrest with cup holders and remote keyless entry.  As you can see, they spared nothing to make this new Soul the best one yet!

    It has more room and more features than its predecessor from the previous year.  The new Soul offers passengers more leg and head room while, at the same time, boasting a wider rear hatch and a clearly expanded cargo space.  The newly slimmed-down hamsters are supposed to fit in perfectly with the new sleek redesign of the Soul which is expected to debut in the Fall of 2013.

    Kia wants to know what your favorite part of their new commercial is as well as what you love about the new 2014 Kia Soul.  They are going to reward one lucky reader of  Tough Cookie Mommy with a $25 iTunes gift card for watching the new video and sharing their favorite part in a tweet!

  55. My favorite part of the commercial is when the hamsters come out of the limo to show their transformation – I love their haircuts.

  61. Tiffany Walker says

    Its a pretty cute commercial. Their workout outfits are totally adorable. Id have to say tho my fave part is when they step out the limo at the end lookin all fancy. Definitely reminded me a bit of Justin Timberlake 😉

  62. tinareynolds says

    The commercial is so cute my kids love watching the hamsters. I really like the music choices and the bold car colors of the new kias. They really stand out.

  63. I’m torn between the diving sequence and the limo sequence. I think it’s almost disturbing how accurately they anthropomorphize the hamsters.

  64. I love it when the hamsters have slimmed down and are walking the red carpet. All the ladies are drooling over them who wouldn’t have given them a second look when they were chubby.

  65. I have watched this commercial so many times. I keep finding new favorite parts. Love all the exercises but especially when the hamsters surprise by being so fit on the Red Carpet.

  66. Richard Hicks says

    I liked it when they dived into the pool
