Bold by design.

Slick. That’s the Kia Soul. Its unique shape makes you instantly recognizable everywhere you go. You’ll get all the looks with striking features like its signature grille and available high-gloss black bumpers. Plus with its available machined-finish 18-inch alloy wheels, you’ll always roll up in style.


Eyes. The window to the Soul.

See and be seen. With the Kia Soul’s LED lighting – and available High-Intensity Discharge (HID) headlights – nighttime visibility is guaranteed. The Soul’s unique available LED light bar taillights are as elegant as they are functional, demonstrating that safe can be beautiful.


It’s all in the details.

If you’re a fan of thoughtful features, you’ll see plenty on the Kia Soul. With the available side-view mirrors that fold automatically or with the touch of a button – giving you an extra few inches on each side when you’re pulling in and out of narrow spaces. What’s more, subtle available signal repeaters on the mirror housing, make you more visible to others when you’re turning.


Choose your Soul.

There’s no limit to the ways you can express your personality. That’s why we have so many ways to design your Kia Soul. Check out the special edition Soul models below and when you’re ready, see your Kia dealer for details*.


Unique inside and out.

Step inside a Soul and you’ll instantly notice the cockpit’s funky, intuitive layout. A driver-centric array of cool features are at hand – like the standard sporty steering wheel with audio and available cruise controls, thoughtfully-positioned instruments and vents and speakers with a circular theme.


Luxuries abound.

Looking for luxury? In the Soul, it’s everywhere you look. From its beautifully upholstered available leather seats to the steering wheel – and even the shift knob – leather is all around in the Soul’s spacious interior.


Take on the elements.

Canadian weather is anything but predictable. That’s why the Soul puts your comfort first.

Let the sunshine in.

There’s nothing like hitting the open road with the wind in your hair. At the push of a button, the Soul’s available panoramic sunroof opens up to let the outside in.


Drive connected.

The Soul keeps you connected to your world. The available voice-activated navigation1 system boasts an impressive 8-inch screen, and with its multimedia interface, keep your devices connected for hands-free use while driving2.


Rock out in the Soul.

Love listening while you drive? The Soul was made for you. Its available multimedia interface syncs your MP3 player, Bluetooth®-enabled3 smartphone, or the system’s own internal hard drive, letting you stream your music instantly. Plus with the available Premium Infinity audio system4, your favourite tunes have never sounded better.


Smart Key. Smart everything.

Metal keys are so last century. The Soul’s available Smart Key system with push-button start does away with the necessity of putting the key in the ignition – you can literally start your car with your key in your pocket. Plus you can find the push-button start intuitively placed on the centre console.


Light it up.

There’s something to be said for clarity. The Soul’s available enhanced LCD Supervision instrument cluster provides you with a variety of diagnostics, media information and vehicle settings that are sharp, clear and readable at a glance.


Uniquely safe.

You may be surprised to know that such a unique vehicle is also so safe. The Soul’s body is constructed with ultra-high-strength steel reinforcements that retain their shape like nothing else. Standard front and front side airbags plus dual-row side air curtain airbags give you added protection in the event of a collision – and on impact, the doors unlock automatically so the vehicle can be exited safely5.


See what you can’t.

Shift into reverse, and you’ll see a wide-angle view of what’s behind you appearing on the dash screen. That’s the available rearview camera6, one of the Soul’s handier features. It’s like an extra set of eyes to help you while backing up.


Keeping your Soul safe.

The Soul has an array of advanced safety systems to keep you secure. Standard Hill Assist Control keeps you from rolling backwards when starting on steep hills. In addition to anti-lock brakes, a Brake Assist System instantly applies full braking force if it detects rapid brake movements. And the Electronic Stability Control and Vehicle Stability Management help keep your Soul composed on slippery surfaces7.
