2018 KIA Soul + | CAR INFO | Winston Salem NC
In a subcompact universe-where efficiency and economy are often priced above styling and sexiness-the KIA Soul has been a thankful standout since it debuted in 2010. With a nice blend of quick handling, ample interior space, remarkable amount of tech features, and reasonable overall performance-not to mention its distinctively boxy exterior-the Soul is the vehicle to top in the subcompact crossover SUV space. Now approaching the end of its second production cycle, the Soul gets comparatively little changes or additions. The + trim, also referred to as “Plus,” still remains the Soul’s mid-level model, thus striking the balance between affordability and sufficient equipment.
Exterior – 2018 Kia Soul +
Although maintaining the boxy look of the first-generation model, the second generation-of which the 2018 KIA Soul + Plus is a part-has higher-mounted tail lights, a “floating” body-color panel set into the liftgate, and a large trapezoidal lower air intake. The gloss-black-and-chrome upper front grille is flanked by multi-reflector headlights, which have auto light control to automatically turn them on or off according to the amount of outside illumination. Flanking the lower air intake are a pair of fog lights for more penetrating illumination when needed. On the front doors are power heated side mirrors, and the vehicle rides on 17-inch alloy wheels. Exterior options include a panoramic sunroof with a power sunshade, HID projector-beam headlights, and LED turn-signal indicators and power folding ability on the side mirrors.
Interior – 2018 Kia Soul + near Winston Salem
The 2018 Soul + comes with two rows of seats-which have woven cloth trim-to accommodate up to five people. Passenger volume is measured at 101 cubic feet, and cargo volume can be maximized to 61.3 cubic feet. Front seating includes 6-way adjustability on the driver’s side for personalizing maximum comfort. For 2018, the Soul + finally gets UVO eServices as a standard infotainment feature. A subscription-free service, UVO integrates all infotainment functions in a centralized area; in the case of the + trim, it’s a 7-inch color touchscreen display. Also included on the infotainment system are six-speaker audio, a trial SiriusXM satellite radio subscription, Bluetooth connectivity for hands-free phone operation and audio streaming, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay for smartphone-based control, and a USB port and auxiliary audio jack for connecting mobile devices. Other standard interior features include a rearview camera, cruise control, remote keyless entry, air-purifying automatic climate control, and a cargo undertray. Interior options on the Soul + include front-seat power adjustability, seat heating ability, an 8-inch touchscreen (in place of the 7-inch), HD Radio, GPS navigation, a smart key system with push-button engine start, and a Harman Kardon audio system.
