2013 Kia Soul
2013 Kia Soul

New For 2013

The Soul gets a dark chrome grille surround, as well as a revised “Kia” badge on the hood, liftgate, and steering wheel. Bluetooth is now standard on the base model with the manual transmission. Power-folding exterior mirrors are standard on the Soul! trim level. Molten, titanium, and moss exterior colors are now available across the line.

Overview

When the Soul showed up in 2010, it made waves. Thanks in part to a successful Super Bowl ad, the Soul secured its spot in the boxy-car trifecta along with the Nissan Cube and the Scion xB. The Soul is the best seller of the bunch by a large margin, and it’s easy to see why. Nifty, funky, and quirky are all words that can describe its styling. Big, buggy headlights and a squared-off, swept-back design give the Soul a sportier look than its competition. Kia added a dark chrome grille surround for 2013. Bold exterior looks are accented further by wacky but appealing paint options. Inside, there are lights in the door-mounted speakers that can flash in time with the music. The Soul! has a voice-activated infotainment system with a 4.3-inch color touch screen and a rear camera display. The two four-cylinder engines now make more power. The 1.6-liter engine, paired with a six-speed manual transmission, produces 138 hp. Not enough? A 2.0-liter produces 164 hp and 148 lb-ft of torque. It’s available with the six-speed manual or a six-speed automatic. The larger engine is standard on Soul+ and Soul! models. If flower power is more appealing to you than horsepower, there is an available eco package that features automatic stop/start and an Active Eco system for optimal fuel-efficient driving.

Safety

ABS; stability and traction control; front, side, and side curtain air bags; a tire-pressure monitoring system; and hill-start assist are standard.

2014 Kia Soul Test Mule Interior
We’ve seen the 2014 Kia Soul’s heavily camouflaged exterior, but these latest shots show the tester’s revised interior. Among the updates is a new infotainment screen, which looks big enough to satisfy the Soul’s style-focused customers when the new car arrives.
