Under The Hood
If you get the standard 2020 Kia Soul, you can expect a 2.0-liter dual overhead camshaft 16-valve inline four-cylinder with dual continuously variable valve timing to be sitting beneath the hood. This engine serves up a respectable 147 horsepower and 132 lb-ft of torque.
You can match this engine with either a six-speed manual transmission or an intelligent variable transmission. With the former, the Soul manages up to 25 mpg in the city and 31 on the highway.* With the latter, fuel economy improves to 27 mpg in the city and 33 on the highway.*
The Kia Soul is also available in the GT-Line trim, which gets you a 1.6-liter dual overhead camshaft 16-valve inline four-cylinder engine with turbocharger for increased performance. With this engine, which is paired to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, the Soul generates 201 horsepower and 195 lb-ft of torque while still managing up to 27 mpg in the city and 32 on the highway.*
Alternative Power On The Horizon
For 2021, Kia plans to roll out an all-electric variant of the Kia Soul. An EV powertrain is not currently available for the 2020 Kia Soul.
Safety is an important element of performance, and the 2020 Kia Soul does not disappoint. Among its suite of available Kia Drive Wise safety technologies are Blind-Spot Collision Warning and Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist. Every Soul comes standard with a Rearview Monitor with Parking Guidance.
