2019 Kia Soul
When you want a vehicle that reflects who you are as an individual, few do it better than the 2019 Kia Soul. This quirky compact car combines a unique style, plenty of personalization options, and peppy power to make it a top-notch choice in its segment. For a car that will stand out, while still offering you the practicality and comfort you need, look no further than the 2019 Soul.
The 2019 Kia Soul is available at three trim levels: Base, + (Plus), and ! (Exclaim).
Powertrain & Performance
Each of the 2019 Soul’s three trim levels have a different engine, so you can pick and choose the amount of power you want. For the Base trim, the standard engine is a 1.6-liter DOHC 16-valve I-4. This comes paired to either a six-speed manual or an available electronically controlled six-speed automatic, both of which help this peppy engine put out 130 horsepower and 118 lb-ft of torque.
For the + (Plus) trim level, you will find a 2.0-liter DOHC 16-valve I-4 engine under the hood. Paired to an electronically controlled six-speed automatic, this powertrain picks up the power slightly — without sacrificing fuel efficiency — with 161 horsepower and 150 lb-ft of torque.
If you’re looking for even more power under the hood, the ! (Exclaim) trim level comes with a turbocharged 1.6-liter DOHC 16-valve I-4. Mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch, this engine produces a whopping 201 horsepower and 195 lb-ft of torque that is sure to make your daily drive that much more fun.
Though the 2019 Soul is one of the most budget-friendly vehicles in the market, it still manages to offer an interior that is refined and premium. Soft-touch materials are used throughout the cabin to create a welcoming environment, while the seats provide plenty of cushioning for up to five passengers. You can even personalize your cabin with ambient lighting to create the exact mood you want in your car. These features, plus the Soul’s maximum cargo capacity of 61.3 cubic feet, make this vehicle a top-notch choice for an everyday driver.
On the outside, the Kia Soul EV is as funky as ever. Unique exterior features include blue-accented Projector Beam Headlights, aerodynamic 16-inch alloy wheels, and, of course, the lack of an exhaust pipe (because of zero emissions). Exterior color options include Clear White, Shadow Black, and others, as well as two two-tone options: Shadow Black and Inferno Red, and Caribbean Blue and Clear White.
Standard & Available Features
As with most Kia models, the 2019 Soul doesn’t scrimp when it comes to offering a range of features. Standard features on the lowest trim include innovations like SiriusXM® satellite radio, a Rear-Camera Display, a five-inch touch screen, Bluetooth® wireless technology, Siri® Eyes Free, voice recognition, and steering wheel-mounted audio control buttons.
If you opt for one of the higher trim levels, you will find available features like a push-button start, a sport leather steering wheel, the UVO infotainment system with a seven-inch touchscreen display, Android Auto™, Apple CarPlay™, a Harman/Kardon® audio system, and driver-assistance technologies like Autonomous Emergency Braking, Forward Collision Warning System, Lane Departure Warning System, Smart Cruise Control, Blind-Spot Detection System, and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert.
