Kia Soul Upgrade

With plenty of talk going around, you may have heard that the newest Kia Soul upgrades from Europe could soon make a United States appearance. Currently, the European market has confirmed a powerful engine for the Soul. Will this turbocharged powerhouse make its way overseas? Find out at Jeffrey Kia!

Current Performance Specs

The Kia Soul currently is equipped with a 1.6L engine, delivering 204 hp, and a 7-speed dual clutch transmission. The result is a fun, agile vehicle that delivers a comfortable ride. But, the Soul can also move on the road. This engine takes the Soul from 0-60 mph in just 7.5 seconds. While the zippy Soul provides the power and handling to create a wonderful daily commuter, the rumored European counterpart may offer a little extra kick.

Europe Debut

Drivers who crave a Soul with athletic prowess should keep an eye on the latest news from Europe. Right now, the European Soul is heading to Paris to make its refreshing debut. Kia fans have speculated that a more vigorously turbocharged engine could make its way to drivers in the United States, and we should keep in mind that Europe will be a first sign of what we could expect for the future U.S. market. Once the time comes for a North American auto show, then we can probably expect the automaker to have some big plans in store for the Kia Soul upgrades.


While we wait for more news from Kia about the Soul upgrades, bask in the latest design features. Models have a newly designed bumper and the option for LED daytime running lights. On the inside, you can expect a revised infotainment system as well. Explore the standard 5-inch display screen, upgrade to a 7-inch screen, or go big with the available 8-inch screen. On top of the new upgrades, you can expect Apple CarPlay and Android Auto to enhance your drive with cutting-edge technology.
