2020 Kia Soul vs 2019 Kia Soul

Serving Wesley Chapel, FL

The Kia Soul has become one of the most popular crossover SUVs on the market. For the 2020 model year, it’s been completely redesigned. This means the arrival of new features and a fresh exterior design. Let’s see how the all-new 2020 Kia Soul compares to the 2019 Kia Soul.


Kia has replaced last year’s base engine with a new power source. Under the hood of the 2020 Kia Soul rests a 2.0-liter, MDI four-cylinder engine. It pushes out a stronger 147 horsepower and 132 lb-ft of torque. Fuel efficiency is aided by a new CVT automatic. Luckily for driving enthusiasts, a six-speed manual transmission is still offered as well. Drivers who crave more fun on the road will be excited by the available turbocharged engine, which is also available on the 2019 Kia Soul. Total output stands at an exciting 201 horsepower and 195 lb-ft of torque.


Like the 2019 Kia Soul, the new 2020 Kia Soul has a boxy shape. However, it looks sleeker and more upscale. When doing a side-by-comparison of these models, you’ll immediately notice the 2020 Kia Soul’s slimmer headlights and boomerang-shaped taillights. If you desire a rugged look, check out the new Soul X-Line. Kia decks out this adventurous-looking trim with extra body cladding. Meanwhile, a unique set of 18-inch alloy wheels and sporty exterior accents help give the new GT-Line trim a racy appearance. Some of the exhilarating paint colors available for 2020 include Solar Yellow, Neptune Blue, and Undercover Green.


The 2019 Kia Soul was known for delivering great comfort on the road. Expect the 2020 model to feel just as relaxing on the inside. You can also take advantage of the crossover’s new features. Kia’s new 11-color Sound Mood Lighting system promises to create an exciting atmosphere. Speaker lights pulse to the beat of the music. A 10.25-inch navigation display has also been introduced on the 2020 Kia Soul. High-definition graphics make this interface especially enjoyable. Yet another new feature is the head-up display. By projecting your speed and other information onto the lower windshield, it helps keep your attention on the road. Both the 2019 Soul and the 2020 Soul offer premium features like a powerful Harmon Kardon audio system and adaptive cruise control.
