Performance

Under the hood, the 2021 Kia Soul is set in motion by a responsive 2.0L four-cylinder engine that makes 147 horsepower and 132 pound-feet of torque. Handling the gear changes, a six-speed automatic transmission is standard on LX models, while an Intelligent Variable Automatic Transmission is available for the base tier and standard across the rest of the lineup. And a well-tuned suspension keeps the Soul composed in the corners and occupants happy on the highway.

If you're looking to complement the Soul's sporty aesthetics with a little more get-up-and-go, the Soul Turbo has you covered. This performance trim level gets a boost from a 1.6L turbocharged four-cylinder that sends 201 horsepower and 195 pound-feet of torque to the wheels via a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.

Style and Accommodations

Boxy and beautiful, the Kia Soul isn't afraid to express its quirky character. And you can further distinguish the hatchback to match your preferred style with exclusive trim levels like the sporty GT-Line and rugged X-Line. The Soul's quadrate design is both intriguing and practical, giving occupants ample room no matter where they're seated and providing one of the most spacious cargo capacities in the class. You'll have 24 cubic feet for your luggage, groceries, or gear behind the second-row and up to 62.1 cubes with the rear seats folded.
