The exterior remains largely unchanged from 2018's model to the current, featuring multi-reflector headlights at base trim, optional High-Intensity Discharge (HID) headlights on the higher trims, as well as optional LED Fog lights. 16-, 17-, and even 18-inch alloy wheels are equipped to base, Plus, and Exclaim trims respectively, while other exterior cues dependent on trim include gloss black and red trim elements on the Exclaim as well as chrome twin exhaust tips. Also available is a Designer Collection Package, which features 18-inch alloy wheels with gloss black inserts for added flair.
Riding high at 63.5 inches tall with 5.9 inches of ground clearance, the Kia Soul uses its height for the benefit of its occupants. With a total length of 163 inches distributed over a 101.2-inch wheelbase, the compact crossover boasts short overhangs front and rear, while at 70.9 inches wide, it has a square stance befitting its square design. The Kia Soul has a curb weight of 2,884 lbs in its base configuration, adding another 58 lbs when paired with its optional automatic transmission. Opting for the Plus model, the bigger motor puts the curb weight at 3,163 lbs, where the top of the range Exclaim trim peaks at 3,232 lbs.

The Soul can be finished in 11 exterior finishes, including a selection of two-tone offerings, but combinations are limited to specific trims. Available on all, Clear White, Bright Silver, Titanium Gray, Shadow Black, and new for 2019 Inferno Red are great looks, but it's the more exclusive hues that suit the Soul's funky character. Mysterious Blue is a Soul + specific color, while the green Alien II is limited to the base and + derivatives. A range of color offerings are exclusive to the + as part of the Designer Collection, including Caribbean Blue, Wild Orange, and two two-tone offerings, Clear White with a red roof, and Inferno Red with a black roof. Each of these designer options adds a further $400 to the Soul's price tag.
