The result is 210 pound-feet of instant torque and an estimated driving range of up to 111 miles. It also includes your favorite tech from the traditional Kia Soul with an eco-friendly twist, including UVO with eco-specific connectivity and bio-based cabin materials.

The Turbo

Or you can opt for the 2019 Soul ! which is the most exciting Soul in the lineup. It uses a turbocharged engine to deliver 201 horsepower with a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission that shifts quickly. The Soul ! is designed to give you a spirited drive and to show this off. You will notice things like bold red exterior accents and vibrant orange stitching on the cloth and leather interior.

The Exterior

When you choose to drive the 2019 Kia Soul, you get a unique exterior with a bold silhouette. You can configure the Soul with High-Intensity Discharge headlights plus LED front fog lights to ensure visibility and driving confidence. Complement these with available LED rear lights. To round it out, the exterior colors range from those that blend into those that stand out from the crowd, meeting all preferences.

The Interior

Inside the latest Kia Soul, you will find a comfortable cabin with great features, like ventilated front seats and heated front and rear seats. The interior has luxurious soft-touch materials, LED mood lighting, and tailored headrests to give you a premium feel.
