2017 Kia Soul


The 2017 Kia Soul is redesigned inside and out with all-new style and a new turbocharged engine. Add in the great modern technology and versatility, the Soul is still one of the best choices on the road today. 

New Design

The Soul remains one of the best looking cars on the road today. This year's model comes with all-new alloy wheel designs, updated headlight design, new grille and new style cues on the back bumper. 

Inside the Soul features an all-new D shaped steering wheel that looks like something you find on a Formula One Car or fighter pilot. There are updates to the dash and odometer panel and everything is laid out in a logical pattern so it's easy for the driver to see and access everything he needs. 

The Soul features new LED lights in the cabin and updates to the seat designs. At higher trims, the Soul features more leather options like leather steering wheel, leather shift knob, and leather accents on the doors and dash area. 


New Turbocharged engine

The new Soul gets more zip thanks to an optional 1.6L turbocharged engine. This new engine gives you increased fuel economy and horsepower. You'll feel it right away with 201 horsepower at 6,000 rpm. That's 40 more horsepower than the 2.0L engine and 70 hp more than the standard 1.6L. The new 1.6L Soul also saves more on fuel, as you'll get an EPA estimated 26 city, 31 highway and 28 combined MPG. 

In addition to the 1.6L turbocharged engine, the new Soul gets performance from a 7-speed dual clutch transmission with quicker and smoother shift points and no shift stock. 

The 1.6L turbocharged engine is available on Soul Exclaim trim levels. The Soul comes standard with a 1.6L non-turbo engine, and there's also a 2.0L engine option. The Soul is available in both automatic and manual transmission. 

Great Tech Options

The Soul is tech marvel with all the options of the modern vehicle. Every Soul comes standard with Bluetooth to safely make hands-free phone calls. Each Soul also comes standard with USB and Auxiliary plugs. That means your phone stays charges, and it's easy to stream the songs and podcasts from your phone over the speakers. 

The Soul also comes with optional Apple Car Play and Android Auto. This fairly new technology is the safest way to stay connected while driving. Your phone's screen is displayed on the car's touch-screen center console. From there you can make phone calls, send text messages and have texts read through the speakers, access Apple or Google Maps and even use apps like Pandora, Facebook, Spotify, Stitcher, Audiobooks, iHeartRadio, MLB At Bat, and more. 

As you climb the trim levels, the Soul offers multiple USB charging ports, navigation, UVO and more. 


Safety Technology

Safety and Technology combine to the make the Soul safer than ever. It has optional forward collision warning system that monitors what's happening in front of you. If it detects a potential head-on collision, alerts will chime and the vehicle will automatically apply brake pressure to try and prevent danger. 

It also comes with Lane Departure Warning, a system that alerts you if you sway out of your lane without using turn signals. There's also blind spot detection and rear cross-traffic alerts. First off, if a vehicle is in your blind spot, a logo will light up on the mirrors. With the rear traffic alert system, you'll be notified of "crossing" traffic as you back it. This keeps you safe if you're backing out of a parking lot or a driveway and helps prevent danger. 

The Soul also comes with an optional backup camera. 

It's designed for maximum visibility out of the front windshield and also features an advanced air bag system, seat belt sensors, child locks, and the LATCH system to safely travel with children. 


The Soul is by far the most versatile vehicle on the today. It has a wagon-style body with a large cabin and trunk area. You'll get much more cargo space than the typical "small sedan," but it's still small enough to easily park on the street. It also sits up higher with a comfortable driver seat. 

It's great vehicle for small families, because five people can comfortably fit inside. The Soul is also considered on the best vehicles for safely traveling with pets. For the all reasons listed above, the Soul is also one of the best vehicles for outdoor enthusiasts. You can easily fit a bike, camping equipment or outdoor gear in your Soul and take it on a road trip. 

It has to be the only vehicle to win awards as the best vehicle for young drivers, millennials, senior citizens, and families.
