2020 Kia Soul Review

Kia Soul Red

If you are looking to bring a unique energy to your next drive around D’Iberville, Gulfport, and Hattiesburg, the 2020 Kia Soul might be just the car you’re looking for.

To help you decide if this vibrant vehicle is right for you, our team at Pat Peck Kia has put together this 2020 Kia Soul Review. We’ll explore its energetic performance, lively interior, and smart safety features. Let’s get started!

Spirited Performance

The 2020 Kia Soul has two engine options:

Engine Horsepower Torque
Standard 2.0L DOHC 4-cylinder 147 132 lb-ft
Turbocharged 1.6L DOHC 4-cylinder 201 195 lb-ft

When equipped with the standard 6-speed manual transmission, the Soul gets an EPA-estimated 25 MPG city and 31 MPG highway.1 However, when equipped with the available Intelligent Variable Transmission, you’ll be able to take this hatchback the extra mile with an EPA-estimated 27 MPG city and 33 MPG highway.1

If you decide to upgrade to the exclusive GT-Line Turbo trim, you’ll get added performance that is specially designed for a racetrack. The 7-speed dual-clutch transmission offers seamless shifting power. Plus, the specially sport-tuned suspension will allow you to take on the tightest curves with pinpoint precision.

Enthusiastic and Entertaining Interior

Let’s start with the nerve center, the available 10.25-inch touchscreen display offers premium navigation with real-time road conditions and SiriusXM® Satellite Radio. On top of that, you’ll stay connected with standard Bluetooth®, Apple CarPlay®, and Android Auto™ integration.

When it’s time to have some fun, the available 10-speaker, 640-watt Harmon Kardon® premium audio system comes into play. It offers an immersive auditory experience with sound components like a dedicated amp, one center-channel speaker, and a subwoofer.

If you’d like to bring some friends, the 2020 Kia Soul has a passenger volume of 102.2 cubic feet. Plus, the available SOFINO leatherette- and cloth-trimmed seating provides premium comfort with a sporty accent. If you’d rather bring along your band equipment, fold down the 60/40 split rear seat to gain access to 62.1 cubic feet of cargo space.

Smart Safety Features

Kia Soul Interior

The 2020 Kia Soul is equipped with a variety of available safety and driver-assistive technologies that will watch your back as you traverse the city streets and country roads. The available Forward Collision Avoidance Assist system will provide audio and visual alerts if it detects a potential collision in your path.

There is also Lane Keeping Assist, which monitors the position of the Kia Soul. If it senses you drifting from your intended lane, it may apply steering input to help keep you front and center. Plus, the available Blind Spot Collision Warning will help you manage your side and rear blind spots, so you’ll have more confidence behind the wheel.

Finally, the Iso-Structure™ of the Soul is specially engineered using high-strength steel. The reinforced body integrity helps protect the passenger cabin during a collision so that the whole squad can enjoy the ride with added peace of mind.
