2019 Kia Soul Trim Levels

The 2019 Kia Soul is one of the best compact cars around. In addition to its well-built nature and exceptional reliability, the 2019 Soul has been praised for its expansive cargo and passenger room. The vehicle is a beautiful wedding of high-quality and value. It’s no wonder it was named the 2019 Best Compact Car for the Money from US News.

For 2019, the Soul boasts a newly standard 5-inch touchscreen, voice recognition, and rearview camera.

The 2019 Kia Soul comes in three trim levels, all intriguingly named: the 2019 Kia Soul Base, 2019 Kia Soul+, and 2019 Kia Soul! Every trim is an excellent value for the money; even the top trim (!) is only slightly more expensive than the average cost of a compact car.
