If you’re looking for an incredibly unique SUV, consider the 2022 Kia Soul. With its funky exterior, modern interior, and exciting performance, this iconic Kia vehicle will help you stand out no matter where you go.
The 2022 Kia Soul is available at six trim levels: LX, S, GT-Line, X-Line, EX, and Turbo.
The first thing anyone notices about the Kia Soul is its exterior design. This SUV is unlike many others thanks to its boxy shape and low stance. You can paint the 2022 Soul in one of eight appealing colors, including a couple of two-tone options that give it a “floating” roof. Standard 16-inch steel wheels can be found on the base LX trim, but as you move up to the other available models, you can swap those out for 16-, 17-, or 18-inch alloy wheels. Specific features and stylings on the Soul GT-Line include bulb type front fog lights, High Gloss Black outside power-adjustable mirrors, and a hot stamping type front grille. The Soul X-Line also comes with exclusive features and exterior elements like roof rails, fender cladding, and silver outside mirrors. Reserved solely for the Soul Turbo are a chrome-tipped center exhaust, mirror-mounted LED turn signal indicators, and LED lighting from front to back.
It’s not all about the outside with the new Kia Soul. The interior is incredibly modern and can be covered in a variety of comfortable cloth or SynTex materials. Take advantage of available features like dual-zone automatic climate control, LED lighting, heated front seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, satin chrome door handles, a 10-way power-adjustable driver’s seat with two-way power lumbar, and more. When you need to haul some gear or open up the back for pets, you’ll have up to 62.1 cubic feet of space available. However, the Soul GT-Line, EX, and Turbo all come with a dual level cargo board that transforms in seconds to open up even more space. You can also use the cargo cover on the EX and Turbo models to ensure that your valuables are hidden in the back.
Along with being modern stylistically, the 2022 Soul also features advanced technology. The standard 8-inch color touch-screen display showcases all of your infotainment, including connections via Android Auto™, Apple CarPlay®, Bluetooth®, and USB audio input. Moving up just one trim from the base LX to the Soul S gives you the larger 10.25-inch color touch-screen display, which is equipped with Kia Connect, premium navigation, SiriusXM® satellite radio, and HD Radio™. You’ll also get dual center console USB charging ports and a wireless phone charger when you choose this model and above, making it even easier to stay powered up on the go. The Soul Turbo is where you’ll find the high-end Harman Kardon® audio system as well as speaker lights that pulse to the sound of your music and have multiple ambience themes.
The standard engine on the 2022 Soul is a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that’s paired with an Intelligent Variable Transmission (IVT). Combined, this powertrain delivers 147 horsepower, 132 lb-ft of torque, and up to 33 mpg on the highway. But for an even more exhilarating experience behind the wheel, consider the Soul Turbo, which puts a 1.6-liter turbo four-cylinder under the hood. This engine is paired with a “wet type” seven-speed Dual-Clutch Transmission (DCT) to deliver 201 horsepower and 195 lb-ft of torque. Amazingly, fuel economy doesn’t suffer too much, coming in at 32 mpg on the highway with this setup. If you’re looking for outstanding driving dynamics, choose the GT-Line, X-Line, or Turbo models that come with a sport-tuned suspension for swift handling.
The 2022 Kia Soul is also safe. Available Kia Drive Wise driver-assist features include Forward Collision Avoidance Assist and Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist, which both come in handy in busy traffic situations. When you’re on the highway, available features like Lane Change Assist, Lane Keeping Assist, Driver Attention Warning, and Blind-Spot Collision Warning will help make your drives safer. But one of the most innovative systems is available Smart Cruise Control, which automatically keeps a safe distance between you and the vehicle ahead by using next-generation radar.
