Once you have all the information, you’ll be able to decide if this hatchback would be a good fit for your commutes around D’Iberville, Gulfport, and Hattiesburg.
Convenience & Connectivity
Use standard Bluetooth® connectivity in your Kia Soul to access your phone’s music and entertainment, plus import your contacts and make phone calls without removing your hands from the wheel. Charge your devices on the go with a standard USB port, too. Satellite radio is also standard, so you’ll have access to hundreds of channels of your favorite tunes and talk radio. A 6-speaker sound system fills the cabin with crystal clear sound.
For even better connectivity and entertainment, add the available UVO infotainment system. With this system, you’ll gain a large 7- or 8-inch touchscreen display. Completely integrate your smartphone with the system using Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™, and you can add extra USB ports for charging more devices at once. Upgrade to an upscale Harmon Kardon® audio system for improved sound quality. Other available options include automatic climate control, push-button start, a panoramic sunroof, and a selection of active driver-assisting safety technologies.
Kia Soul Performance
The 2018 Kia Soul is available with four different engine options, each associated with a different trim level, so you can select the one with the power output you want. The base model is a 1.6L 4-cylinder that produces 130 horsepower and is paired with a 6-speed manual transmission. The next trim is the Plus (+), which comes with a 2.0L 4-cylinder with a 6-speed automatic transmission.
The Exclaim (!) trim comes with a turbocharged 1.6L 4-cylinder that generates 201 horsepower, which is paired with a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. The more luxurious trim level is the all-electric Soul EV, which comes with a 109-horsepower electric motor. The EV can travel 111 miles on a single charge and is a fantastic alternative to gas for city drivers.
