Down:Cash Deal Only
The Plus model, which Kia calls + but we’ll use the word for, takes a 2.0-liter four that makes 161 horsepower, mated to a six-speed automatic. It’s quicker, but the transmission searches around for the gear it wants, too much, with both this engine and the base model’s.
Soul+ gets upgraded cloth upholstery, a 5.0-inch touchscreen, rearview camera, 17-inch wheels, and body-colored bumpers and trim.
The Kia Soul does indeed have some soul, along with some compelling traits. The base model, even with its speed-challenged 1.6-liter engine and six-speed gearbox, offers a good value. The new 201-horsepower turbo with the seven-speed dual clutch transmission makes the Soul an enjoyable driving companion when the revs are kept up.
