Regardless of model, the cabin is filled with soft-touch materials and high-quality fabrics, giving it an elegant feel.

Kia Soul Interior Versatility

In the cargo bay, the Soul offers 24.2 cubic feet with the seats upright, and 62.1 cubic feet with the seats folded down, with the help of the 60/40 split-folding rear seat. This is not only generous for the class, but it provides more than enough space for all your luggage, camping gear, shopping bags, or just about anything else you may need.

The cargo load floor is flat and low as well, making loading your bags quick and convenient. Several small storage compartments can be found within the cabin, giving your passengers the small spaces necessary to stow their phones, wallets, keys, or other belongings.

The Soul includes many technology features standard, such as:

  • 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system
  • Rear-camera display
  • 6-speaker sound system
  • Apple CarPlay®, Android Auto™, and Bluetooth® connectivity
  • USB port

These will create a premium audio experience that will keep you effortlessly connected to the world around you while on the go.

Additional technology features are available in higher trim levels. The available UVO link with a 10.25-inch Color Touch-Screen Display with Premium Navigation, Satellite Radio, and HD Radioä, for example, will enhance the already impressive level of connectivity provided in the Soul.

Other available technology features include Automatic Temperature Control Air Conditioning with a Cluster Ionizer, Remote Keyless Entry, and a push-button start.

The steering-wheel-mounted audio control buttons will also improve your experience, making it easier for you to control volume and radio station, and select phone options without taking your eyes off the road.

2021 Kia Soul Safety

While you can rest assured knowing that the 2021 Kia Soul will deliver an enjoyable experience behind the wheel, you'll also want the peace of mind knowing that you're safer within the Kia vehicle's walls. Kia has taken several steps to ensure this is the case.

The Kia vehicle features numerous safety features that are essential to automotive safety. These include an airbag system, seatbelts, child-safety doorlocks, and more. Where the Soul differentiates itself from the pack is with its available driver-assistive features.

The driver-assistive package available in some of the Kia Soul trims includes:

  • Forward Collision Avoidance-Assist
  • Lane Change Assist, Blind-Spot Collision Warning
  • Smart Cruise Control, and Rear Cross-Traffic Collision Assist

These features combine to give you an extra set of eyes while on the roadways, preparing you better for potential obstructions.

2021 Kia Soul Performance

While the interior setup proves to be impressive, the Kia Soul continues to amaze with its overall performance, tying back to its engine configuration. The 2021 Kia Soul comes with a 2.0-liter DOHC 4-cylinder engine that's equipped to produce 147 horsepower and 132 lb-ft of torque.

This engine setup is also configured with a 6-speed manual transmission with an available Intelligent Variable Transmission (IVT). The stock transmission was able to earn an impressive EPA-estimated 25 city/31 highway MPG.1 If you find you need even better fuel efficiency, the IVT will be able to get you an EPA-estimated 28 city/33 highway MPG.1

This control afforded to you by the powertrain is enhanced further by the Leather-Wrapped Steering Wheel & Gearshift Knob available in certain 2021 Kia Soul trim levels. Whichever trim you land on, you can be sure that the interior and exterior performance will align to create a luxurious driving experience.
