2018 Kia Soul Plus Specs

Kia Soul

The Plus model is only available with a two-liter, four-cylinder engine mated to a six-speed automatic transmission, with 161 hp and 195 lb-ft on tap. Although it sits in the middle of the range, it’s our recommended trim, largely due to the fact it can be better equipped than any other trim. While it receives upgraded upholstery and larger wheels to start, it’s the available options that are most important, as the Plus can be equipped with a range of driver assistance systems like adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning, lane keep assist, and autonomous emergency braking - none of which can be had on any other trim. Additionally, the Plus has a wider range of customization options.
