The 2020 Soul is completely new yet the familiar version of Kia's beloved and award-winning urban runabout.
Taking everything that helped popularize the quirky, unconventionally styled subcompact, Kia Motors poured more of its soul into nearly every inch of the vehicle, resulting in a third-generation that continues to transcend unmatched style, peppy performance, thrilling technology, and urban practicality.
Proving the point that "there is a Soul for everyone," the normally aspirated and optionally turbocharged Soul is available in five trim levels -- LX, S, X-Line, GT-Line, and EX -- plus the all-new Soul Electric Vehicle.
Music has been an overarching theme for Soul since its inception, and it's no different this time around. For the third generation, designers and engineers turned up the volume on the interior design.
Soul enhances its fun-to-drive personality and versatility with different drivetrain combinations. Kia's Intelligent Variable Transmission (IVT) is now available on the 2020 Soul for those who require efficiency with their zip. Designed and built in-house, the IVT is Kia's unique version of a continuously variable transmission that provides an engaging driving experience.
The standard engine is the 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine hooked to a 6-speed manual transmission or Intelligent Variable Transmission. It delivers 147 horsepower, 132 lb-ft. of torque.
For those who desire more zip, a turbocharged option is also available. The 1.6-liter twin-scroll turbocharged I-4 GDI engine paired to a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission. It produces 201 horsepower, 195 lb. ft of torque.
With the Soul's all-new platform comes a more refined experience behind the wheel and on the road. Engineers designed suspension geometry to help quell noise, vibration and harshness while also improving handling and comfort in a variety of conditions.
