2022 Kia Soul Features and Specs

The Kia Soul has an instantly recognizable profile wherever you drive it. Making a virtue out of its subcompact boxy shape, the Soul is a city-friendly car with genuine character and personality to go along with its generous set of features. The latest 2022 Kia Soul is now available at South Trail Kia, and here are the key highlights of this uniquely attractive model.

Iconic City-Friendly Design

It may seem strange for a relatively new model to be described as iconic, but the Kia Soul achieved that status almost immediately after its release. Its tiny footprint takes the best elements of an SUV - solidity, robustness, and style - and packs them into a hatchback format that's all upright lines and confident angles. When you need a car that's unfazed by hectic city driving, the agile Soul has few if any equals.

Power Under the Hood

You wouldn't expect a vehicle of this size to set the performance ratings ablaze, but the 2022 Soul is blessed with a pleasing amount of power under the hood. Most models in this year's lineup are driven by a 2.0L I-4 engine making a healthy 147 horsepower and 132lb-ft of torque, a generous amount of output for an SUV of this size. In line with its city driving target market, this powertrain is completed by a continuously variable transmission feeding front-wheel drive.

But if you're looking for a little more pep from your urban hatchback, then trading up to the 1.6L turbo engine delivers a searing 201 horsepower to take the Soul into a new dimension of lively performance. To channel the extra power most effectively to the front-wheel drive, the transmission in this model is upgraded to a silky dual-clutch seven-speed automatic design for highly controllable acceleration and confident cruising.

Interior Space and Comforts

The Soul's straightforward shape means there's a surprising amount of space in the interior, with a generous 104cm of legroom in the front row and a hugely impressive 98.5cm in the rear. Cargo space is also ample, with 685L available in the rear, rising to 1,758.5L with the second-row seats folded down.

There's also an attractive amount of comfort options available depending on the trim, with highlights including dual-zone climate control, a heated steering wheel, and heated power-adjustable front seats.

Advanced Infotainment and Tech

But it's in the infotainment section that the 2022 Soul really impresses, with several improvements over the previous models. The entry-level trim now boasts an 8" infotainment touchscreen as standard, expanding to a 10.3" version on higher trims. Android Auto and Apple CarPlay provide convenient smartphone compatibility, while optional upgrades include wireless device charging, in-built navigation, and a high-end Harman Kardon sound system.
