If you are looking for a Soul that packs a punch, check out the Turbo trim. This trim starts at $27,790, making it only a modes upgrade from the previous trim. It includes a 201-horsepower 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine and a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. It is an upgrade from the EX trim, boasting cloth and leather upholstery, a premium Harmon Kardon audio system, and a heads-up display.

The 2022 Kia Soul is an excellent choice for small families. In addition to the vehicle’s safety and comfort features, the vehicle has two sets of LATCH connectors for car seats. The best part of the Soul, however, is the cargo space. Behind the rear seats, you’ll get 24.2 cubic feet of space. With the rear seats folded, you’ll get an impressive 62.1 cubic feet. Check out this vehicle at your local kia dealer to see if it’s the right choice for you.
