The unique, boxy vehicle makes very efficient use of its geometry and offers its potential owners an array of engine options so they can choose the exact driving experience they would like to have. The performance specs and cargo volume for the 2021 Kia Soul will continue to keep the special vehicle in its strong position in its class. For the new model year, the automaker has made its rear occupant alert system standard on all six trim grades and introduced a new suspension setup for the X-Line and GT-Line models.

Engine Technology

Kia offers future owners of the 2021 Soul a pair of engine options. Most trims will have a naturally aspirated 2.0-liter, inline four-cylinder engine under the hood that will make 147 horsepower and 132 pound-feet of torque.  The top-of-the-line Turbo trim grade will employ a turbocharged 1.6-liter, four-cylinder engine, producing 201 horsepower and 195 pound-feet of torque. Additionally, the automaker has made three transmission options, a six-speed manual, continuously variable transmission and a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic. 

All six trim grades will get 25 miles per gallon or better in the city and more than 30 miles per gallon on the highway.
