What's New for the 2018 Kia Soul?

The 2018 KIA Soul has earned the top spot in its class rankings at U.S. News and World Report. In fact, it has a number two ranking among hatchbacks and small cars. Quality, technology and crossover-worthy cargo space make it a good choice, and its affordable price points make it especially inviting.

Clever curb appeal has been a hallmark of the Soul since its introduction. The newest models let you accent your car with a black or red roof. The menu features more dash tech and more safety tech to give you the contemporary ride you want.

The interesting exterior is reflected in the innovative interior. Space is better than rival cars due to its high ceiling. Drivers appreciate the higher seats, which give the Soul a crossover-like advantage over other cars. The 24-cu.ft. hold expands to 61 cubic feet, another crossover-like advantage. Souls come in three trims. The base edition has wireless connectivity, a USB port, and an available seven-inch touchscreen. This system includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. If you step up to the Soul Plus, KIA includes these features and adds keyless entry, upgraded cloth upholstery, and a rear center armrest. The Plus Primo package supplies a panoramic sunroof and many standards from the Exclaim trim. This top edition has navigation, push button start, LED speaker lights, and a large touchscreen. Exclaim side mirrors are power-folding as well as power-defrosting. The front seats are power-adjustable as well as power-heated and power-ventilated. Power-heat also comes with the steering wheel and the rear seats. Exclaim seats come in a black cloth and leather upholstery combination with orange contrast stitching.
