As of 2022, over 75 thousand consumers have taken home a Kia Soul. The 2023 Kia Soul is an updated version of Kia’s popular compact SUV, with a focus on comfort, technology, and style. The car’s boxy shape, and distinctive design, which I personally like I believe has made it stand out on the road. The unusual design has allowed the interior to be spacious and comfortable, with plenty of room for passengers and cargo. Soul has always been set apart by its bold yet functional design and in the 2023 model year, it continues that tradition with an all-new front fascia. The new grill is set off with available LED headlights and redesigned fog lights. One of the most striking features of the 2023 Kia Soul is its friendly and fun design. The car’s look is playful and quirky, with bold colors and eye-catching details that give it, I think a unique personality. From the outside, the car looks like a toy car come to life, with its rounded edges and cartoonish proportions. But inside, the 2023 Kia Soul is a serious contender in the compact SUV market, with high-tech features and a comfortable, practical design.
The 2023 Kia Soul comes in several different trim levels. There is the well-equipped LX model, the S, EX, and GT-Line. each having their own set of features and amenities. the LX, comes with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that delivers 147 horsepower and is paired with a continuously variable transmission (CVT) which helps gives is some nice, get up and go. The car’s fuel economy is impressive, with an estimated 29 mpg in the city and 35 mpg on the highway. The mid-level S and EX trim levels come with a turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine that delivers 201 horsepower and is paired with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. These models offer a more dynamic driving experience, with quicker acceleration and more responsive handling. The fuel economy is still pretty respectable, with an estimated 27 mpg in the city and 32 mpg on the highway.
One of the standout features of the 2023 Kia Soul is its advanced technology. The car comes with a 10.25-inch touchscreen display that is easy to use and provides access to a wide range of features, including Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Bluetooth connectivity, and satellite radio. The car also comes with a suite of advanced safety features, including lane departure warning, lane keeping assist, forward collision warning, and automatic emergency braking. On the inside, the 2023 Kia Soul is spacious and comfortable, with plenty of headroom and legroom for both the driver and passengers. The seats are supportive and well-cushioned. The cabin is insulated from road noise and vibrations, which you will appreciate when you are trying to talk to the folks in the back seat. The car’s unusual shape provides ample cargo space, with 24.2 cubic feet of storage behind the rear seats and up to 62.1 cubic feet of storage with the rear seats folded down. That should allow you to carry all the stuff you need for a nice camping trip.
Despite its playful and fun exterior, the 2023 Kia Soul is a serious contender in the compact SUV market. Its advanced technology, impressive fuel economy, and comfortable interior make it a great choice for drivers who want a practical and reliable car that is fun to drive and has some Soul! by Albert Flores, automotive Writer for La Prensa, Texas
