This quirky car offers the drivability of a sedan with the space of a compact crossover, all wrapped up in a unique package, making it a top choice for drivers who love to express themselves.
The 2018 Kia Soul is available in three trim levels: Base, + (Plus), and ! (Exclaim).
Powertrain & Performance
Each of the 2018 Soul’s three trim levels has a different engine option, which means you can get a varying amount of pep under your hood.
The Base trim has a 1.6-liter inline-four engine that is paired to a six-speed manual transmission and gets 130 horsepower and 118 lb-ft of torque.
For the + (Plus) trim, you will find a 2.0-liter inline-four, which boosts the power up to 161 horsepower and 150 lb-ft of torque. This is combined with an electronically controlled six-speed automatic transmission.
The highest trim, ! (Exclaim), has the most powerful engine. Its 1.6-liter turbocharged inline-four puts out 201 horsepower and 195 lb-ft of torque.
The Soul’s exterior design truly stands out from the crowd, and its interior is no different. Inside the Soul’s cabin, you will find the perfect combination of comfort, practicality, and high-end materials. This car’s funky shape increases the amount of leg room available, making it easy for adults to get comfortable even in the back seat. It has 60/40-split rear seats that fold down with a single lever, and when these rear seats are down, it offers 50 cubic feet of cargo space. When the seats are up, it offers an impressive 24 cubic feet of volume.
