One-size-fits-all is a misnomer in the automobile world and it’s a tad difficult to satisfy everyone’s needs with the variation of style, performance, power, economy and cost. That’s why the 2020 Kia Soul is a hatchback with a difference as it provides one of the widest range of choices and colors and form-factors so you can get to choose what suits your style. As we take a look at the display at The Woodlands Kia dealer,we realize that this perky offering from Kia indeed has a Soul. Spoilt by choices and exhaustive range of features of each of the Soul variants we decide to take a call on the aspects of Styling and performance score of the 2020 Kia Soul.
The 2020 Kia Soul comes in three different exhilarating forms which take you from cool to spirited with the addition of the GT-Line trims and there on to adventurous with the addition of the X-Line trim. The Soul comes in a total of 6 trim levels such as the LX, S, GT-Line, X-Line, EX and the GT-Line Turbo. The sheer range of color and combinations on the Soul is overwhelming and in 2020 you can choose one from 17 different color choices with 10 unicolor and 7 dual tone colors with a different color for the roof. The X-Line trim adds more muscle tone that prepares it for some off-road excitement and adds a classy finish with exclusive 18-inch alloy wheels, exclusive body kit for textured and contrast body cladding and exclusive roof rails. Of course, if you want to play with the designs, you have the available Designer Collection Package that gives you a two-tone finish, full LED headlights and 18-inch wheels. Keeping the above in mind, the Performance Score of the 2020 Kia Soul is a definite ‘High’.
To go with the external appointments, you again get an awesome range of choices to desk up the interiors of the Soul to play with your senses. The seat trims in the Kia Soul can be altered from the Black or Two-tone Tricot Cloth to Woven cloth and thereon to add more luxurious feel by opting for Black Sofino Leatherette to and exclusive EX Designer Sofino Leatherette and cloth seat trims. Since all the combinations are not available for all the trims, the Designer Collection Package comes to the rescue on some of the trims. The interior of the Soul is treated just as impeccably as the exterior with awesome styling, connectivity, entertainment and convenience. This deserves a thumbs-up and easily rakes up another ‘High’ on our performance score.
The Woodlands Kia dealership showed us the minimum configuration you will find in the interior of a 2020 Kia Soul.This is a 7-inch Color Touch-Screen Display, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay capability, Bluetooth, Cruise control with steering mounted controls including audio controls, drive mode controls and such. The GT-Line Turbo trim comes additionally with paddle shifter and an 8-inch color head-up display. The GT-Line Turbo also gives you some superb mood-lighting and a Harman Kardon audio system.
