2021 Soul Powertrain Options

One of the best reasons to invest in the Kia Soul is that you'll have multiple powertrain options, meaning you'll be able to choose an engine that provides the exact power and efficiency you need.

The first option is the standard 2.0L in-line 4-cylinder engine. When you rev this powertrain, you'll unleash a respectable 147 horsepower and 132 lb-ft of torque, perfect for city commuting.

This engine is paired with a 6-Speed Manual Transmission on the base trim and an Intelligent Variable Transmission (IVT) on the higher trims. While the manual transmission offers a personalized ride, the IVT provides guess-free shifting and an elevated fuel economy.

If you're looking for more power, opt for the available 1.6L 4-cylinder engine with a turbocharger on the highest trim level. This gives an extra boost with an impressive 201 horsepower and 195 lb-ft of torque. Plus, paired with a 7-Speed Dual-Clutch Transmission, you'll have precise handling while it aids in a heightened efficiency.

Kia Soul Fuel Efficiency Ratings

Now that you know more about the different powertrain options of the 2021 Kia Soul, it's time to find out what the Kia Soul Miles Per Gallon is. As you probably expect, your efficiency ratings will depend on both the engine that you choose and whether you have a manual or automatic transmission.

If you have the base engine and the manual transmission, you'll average an EPA-estimated 25 city/31 highway MPG.* With the intelligent variable transmission, you'll see a boost in EPA-estimated fuel economy ratings with an EPA-estimated 28 city/33 highway MPG on most trim levels.*

For more efficiency, choose the Kia Soul EX trim level. With the 2.0L engine and IVT drivetrain, you'll see an EPA-estimated 29 city/35 highway MPG.*

Lastly, the 1.6-liter turbocharged engine and its 7-speed automatic transmission offer an EPA-estimated 27 city/32 highway MPG.*

It's important to note that all MPG ratings are based on EPA estimates only. Your driving habits, road conditions, and other factors can affect your gas mileage.

How to Get the Most Out of Your Kia Soul Gas Mileage

Though the Kia Soul offers an excellent fuel economy across all trim levels, there are some things you can do to ensure it reaches your standards.

  • Vehicle Maintenance: Routine maintenance is a great way to keep your vehicle in tip-top condition. However, it can also elevate your fuel economy as well. Oil changes, filter changes, and even tire rotations can all help your vehicle go farther on one tank of gas. Luckily, with the industry-leading 10-year/100,000-mile warranty program from Kia, it's never been easier to stay up to date on preventive maintenance.
  • Tire Pressure: Making sure your tires always have the correct amount of air will also help your fuel efficiency. When driving on low or flat tires, the engine must work harder and use more gas. With the standard Tire-Pressure Monitoring System in the 2021 Soul, you'll know exactly when you need to fill up.
  • Cargo: The Kia Soul offers seating for up to five as well as a max cargo space of 62.1 cubic feet. Though this offers a handy solution for transporting passengers and cargo, the more weight you have inside, the more gas the Soul will use. Just remember to keep the weight light when you can.

Other Excellent Kia Soul Features

As you can see, the Kia Soul is a highly efficient vehicle, and it can save you a great deal of money on fuel. Efficiency, however, isn't the only reason to invest in this model, as the Soul offers a range of features that you're sure to love.

For example, this SUV provides some of the best technology you can find on the market. With the available Harman Kardon® Audio system and SiriusXM® Satellite Radio, you'll never be without great-sounding music.

Looking to keep connected on the go? Standard Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ support make using your favorite smartphone applications easy.

You can also choose the Kia Drive Wise safety suite. These help you mitigate collisions and elevate awareness with features such as:

  • Blind-Spot Collision Warning
