Exterior – 2018 KIA Soul

Five exterior colors are available with the base trim: Clear White, Bright Silver, Titanium Grey, Shadow Black, and the very cool Alien 2. Dual body-color power mirrors and multi-reflector headlights are standard. Lengthwise, the Soul is the shortest vehicle in its class, sitting at 163 inches.

A 6-speaker AM/FM/MP3/SiriusXM audio system with 6 speakers is standard, and the UVO infotainment system with 7-inch touch-screen display is available. Bluetooth wireless technology with steering wheel-mounted buttons is standard. Four adults can sit comfortably in the 2018 soul, with the rear seats being remarkably spacious. The seating position of 25.6 inches from the road surface is average for this class, but it’s a perfect height for getting in and out of the car, as well as providing a comfortable riding height. Controls are easy to reach, and they feature soft-touch plastics and leather-grain detail.
Mechanical/Powertrain – Soul specs near High Point NC
The Soul is more than just fun design and features: the base 1.6-liter four-cylinder and available 2.0-liter four-cylinder engines provide acceleration that speed that lives up to the Soul’s aggressive looks. The 1.6-liter provides 130-hp at 6,300 RPM and 118 lb-ft of torque at 4,500 RPM. A 6-speed manual transmission is standard, to the pleasure of manual driving enthusiasts, and an electronically controlled 6-speed automatic is available. The braking system on this front-wheel-drive vehicle is a 4-wheel disc with anti-lock. The ride is smooth and stable with front suspension features such as MacPherson struts, gas shock absorbers, and a stabilizer bar. The rear suspension is equipped with a coupled torsion beam axle and gas shock absorbers.
Safety – 2018 KIA Soul dealer
New for 2018, automated emergency braking and adaptive cruise control round out an already-solid safety package. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) awarded the 2018 Soul “good” ratings in all categories. Advanced safety features such as forward-collision warning, lane-departure warning, and rear cross-traffic monitor are available as add-ons. There is no spare tire, but a tire inflator kit is included. Hopefully, though, the standard tire pressure monitoring system should keep you from running flat. Airbags abound, including those of the dual front advanced, dual front seat-mounted, and full-length side curtain variety. Vehicle stability management and electronic stability control keep things balanced.
