2022 Kia Soul Overview | Evansville, IN
If you’re in the market for a new SUV that stands out among the crowd, you can’t get more unique than the 2022 Kia Soul. This exciting vehicle blends Kia value with advanced technology, sporty performance, and the iconic style the Soul is known for.
The 2022 Kia Soul is available at six trim levels: LX, S, GT-Line, X-Line, EX, and Turbo.
You can choose from eight alluring colors for the exterior of the new Soul, like Inferno Red and Neptune Blue, as well as a couple of two-tone options that give the SUV a “floating” roof design. The boxy shape of the Soul begins at the front with its radiator grille that’s flanked by multi-focus reflector headlights. LED headlights and front fog lights are also available for added style and function. Wheel options range from the standard 16-inch steel design to larger 17- and 18-inch alloy wheels.
For a more rugged design, choose the Soul X-Line that is off-road inspired and adds features like contrasting body cladding, roof trim, and satin silver accents. The Soul GT-Line also has its own style options, with exclusive front and rear bumper fasciae, sporty side sills with red accents, a silver rear skid plate, and a hot stamping grille.
The inside of the 2022 Soul is just as exciting as its exterior, offering the ideal blend of comfort and style. Seats can be covered in woven cloth, premium tricot cloth, or a combination of SynTex (synthetic leather) and cloth, depending on the trim level you choose. The Soul GT-Line is where you’ll find the SynTex seats with an exclusive red color pack. Throughout the vehicle you’ll find soft-touch materials on the dashboard and on the upper front door panels as well as matte silver accents and available satin chrome and piano black accents.
In addition to that appealing style, the Soul can be outfitted with an available 10-way power driver’s seat with two-way power lumbar support to make long drives more enjoyable. Even more convenience can be had with available heated front seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and gearshift knob, a heating element for the steering wheel, and a power sunroof. Additional ease comes in the form of the versatile 60/40 split-folding rear seat that opens up to 62 cubic feet of space when folded down.
Along with being stylish, the new Kia Soul is also smart. Infotainment tech begins with a standard 8-inch color touch-screen display that seamlessly connects with your smartphone via standard Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™. You can also connect your smartphone via Bluetooth® or the USB audio input/charging port in the front console. When you select the Soul S model, you’ll upgrade to the large 10.25-inch touch-screen display, which comes with Kia Connect, premium navigation, SiriusXM® satellite radio, and HD Radio™. One of the most unique features available are the speaker lights, with ambience themes, that pulse to the sound of your music on the available Harman Kardon® audio system.
When it comes to safety technology, the Soul can be equipped with many advanced driver-assist systems. This includes typical available features like Lane Change Assist, Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist, Blind-Spot Collision Warning, Driver Attention Warning, Forward Collision Avoidance Assist, and more. But one of the more advanced features is Smart Cruise Control, which automatically adjusts the speed of the Soul to keep a safe distance from the vehicle ahead of you, under proper conditions.
No matter which model you choose, you’ll experience dynamic driving behind the wheel of the new Kia Soul. The standard engine is a 2.0-liter four-cylinder that’s paired with an Intelligent Variable Transmission to deliver up to 33 mpg on the highway. For an even more exhilarating drive, consider the Soul Turbo model, which houses a turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine. With its seven-speed Dual-Clutch Transmission (DCT), you can expect to get a thrilling 201 horsepower (up from 147 on the standard engine) and still get up to 32 mpg on the highway.
