The Kia Soul has remained a powerful force on the U.S. market since it first debuted in 2009. It’s all thanks to the Soul’s spirited performance, generous array of premium features and award-winning crash test scores. Best of all, there are a variety of ways to build your Kia Soul. Whether you’re looking for a vibrant exterior color or a top-of-the-line trim, there are many options. But that leaves two very important questions. What are the differences between the Kia Soul trims and which model is right for you?
Kia’s 2019 Soul is available in three different engine options. In fact, each of the Soul’s three trims (the base, Soul Plus and Soul Exclaim) have a unique engine under the hood. Truly, the key differences between each model are not only the engines available, but the optional packages and standard features.
