2021 Kia Soul Overview

The 2020 Kia Soul was totally redesigned and ushered in the third generation of this extremely popular and arguably iconic nameplate. The redesign earned substantial critical praise, including the 2020 World Car of the Year award and being selected as a Car and Driver Editors' Choice. This was surely going to be a difficult success to follow up, but Kia has managed it with the 2021 Kia Soul now available at Arapahoe Kia. Notable updates include standard rear occupant alert, a redesigned suspension for the X-Line and GT-Line and a remote start function on the key fob for the EX and Turbo trims. Join us as we explore these changes and much more in our 2021 Kia Soul vs 2020 Kia Soul near Denver review.

Denver CO - 2021 Kia Soul's Overview

Exterior - Kia Dealer serving Denver CO

Kia wanted to make the 2020 Kia Soul a bit bigger on the inside, which it accomplished by expanding the wheelbase from 101.2 to 102.4 inches and the overall length from 163.0 to 165.2 inches. This is not a big change as far as the exterior goes and allowed the Soul to remain a shape and style that have become so recognizable. Perhaps the biggest exterior difference between the current and outgoing generation is that the minimum ground clearance was raised almost an inch to 6.7 inches. Kia offers six distinct trims: LX, X-Line, GT-Line, S, EX and Turbo. The X-Line and GT-Line are particularly notable in that they both feature appearance packages that set them apart from the rest of the lineup.

That rear legroom means that you can actually seat adults back there, which much of the competition cannot claim. The base model includes nice cloth upholstery, air conditioning and a 7-inch infotainment touchscreen. The X-Line adds a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob. The GT-Line adds a sunroof and upgrades the cloth upholstery. The S is like the GT-Line but adds a power-adjustable driver's seat and drops some of the youthful touches. The EX adds push-button ignition, dual-zone automatic climate control, heated front seats, a bigger touchscreen and wireless charging, and the Turbo adds a heated steering wheel and sim-leather upholstery.
