 What’s New for the 2018 Kia Soul?

As one of the top competitors in the subcompact SUV crossover class, there were not many things that needed to be drastically changed on the 2018 Kia Soul. The Soul, now in its fifth model year, is both fun and functional as a daily driver. One of the new things for 2018 is the addition of the infotainment system as a standard feature to the Soul Plus as well as the Base Convenience Package. Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) and Smart Cruise Control (SCC) are now available on the Soul Plus Primo Package. The Soul Plus Primo “Lit” Package is brand new for 2018 and has features that include LED positioning lights and HID headlights. Also, the Plus Designer Collection now features a snazzy Wild Orange paint option.

Aside from the few changes that were made, everything else carries over from the 2017 Kia Soul. The 2018 Soul has three engine options: the 1.6-L I-4, the 2.0-L I-4, and the 1.6-L turbocharged I-4. The 1.6-L comes with a 6-speed manual or automatic transmission and generates 130 hp and 118 lb-ft of torque. The 2.0-L is paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission and generates 161 hp and 150 lb-ft of torque. Finally, the 1.6-L turbocharged engine is paired with a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission (DCT) that generates 201 hp and 195 lb-ft of torque. All vehicles come standard with FWD. There is still numerous driver assist features (such as the optional lane departure warning and blind spot monitoring) and safety features. There is sufficient cargo space in the rear (61.3 cubic feet with the rear seats folded down) and enough head, shoulder, and leg space throughout the cabin. On the manual transmission, you will get about 27 mpg combined (24 mpg city and 30 mpg highway)**. On the automatic transmission, you get 27 mpg combined (25 mpg city and 30 mpg highway)**. The DCT nets a slightly better EPA at 28 mpg combined (26 mpg city and 31 mpg highway)**.
