A Glance At The New 2022 Kia Soul

June 1st, 2022 by

When you’re looking for a 2022 Kia Soul, come to Greenway Kia Rivergate. Up to five passengers can enjoy the spacious interior unless you fold down the 60/40-split rear seats to increase cargo capacity from 18.7 to 62.1 cubic feet. High-strength steel is used in the Iso-Structure™ to reinforce body integrity and provide superb rigidity. The available roof rack provides a place to bring any cargo that doesn’t fit in the trunk.

For the exterior, you can select a single color, such as Undercover Green or Snow White Pearl, or opt for dual tones, such as a Neptune Blue body topped by a Cherry Black Roof. Illuminating your night drives are the available LED headlamps that automatically turn on and off, depending on exterior lighting. Front fog lights maintain your visibility when the view turns misty.

Moving Ahead

Expect up to 201 horsepower from the available 1.6-liter Turbocharged 4-cylinder and the 7-speed Dual Clutch Transmission with paddle shifters. If you stick with the standard 2.0-liter inline-4 and its paired Intelligent Variable Transmission for up to 147 horsepower and 132 lb.-ft. of torque.

The standard front-wheel drive boosts fuel economy to as much as 29 MPG in the city and 35 mpg on the highway. Choose the Turbo trim and thrill to sport-tuned suspension with more solid braking from the larger front and rear brake rotors.

Inside Connections

Inside the 2022 Kia Soul, you stay connected to family, friends, and work, through the 10.25-inch touchscreen display can show a split-screen view as well as a dynamic moving map with directions to where you want to go. Support for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integrates your compatible smartphone, so you can make calls, access text messages, and download selected apps. The Wireless Charging Pad lets you charge your Qi-compatible device without wires. If you prefer, you can also connect the traditional way through charging ports.

Boost your music appreciation with the Harman Kardon® Audio System, which comes with an external amplifier, center speaker and subwoofer. Your entertainment choices include the clear sounds of HD Radio® and SiriusXM® Satellite Radio, which provides ad-free music, live sports, the latest news, and exclusive celebrity talk shows.

The Kia Access app with Kia Connect turns your smartphone into a remote that lets you lock and unlock the doors, or start the engine and run climate control from wherever you are. You can also ask for roadside assistance or receive vehicle notifications. Kia Connect Voice Assist lets your car search online for points of interest for better search results.

Safety First

Whether you’re driving solo or with you family, the 2022 Kia Soul puts safety first by monitoring the road around you and warning you of hazards. Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist detects potential collisions and can apply braking to prevent an accident. Pedestrian Detection works when people are in your path. To maintain a safe gap between you and the car in front, Smart Cruise Control automatically adjusts your speed when traffic gets faster or slower.

Lane Keeping Assist can nudge the steering wheel to bring you in line when you drift outside your lane without activating a turn signal. To guard your lane changes, Blind-Spot Collision Warning tells you of incursions in your blind zone. You won’t fall asleep or become inattentive when Driver Attention Warning prompts you to wake up.

When you reverse out of a parking spot, Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist tells you about any vehicles that are crossing your backward direction. The Rear-View Camera shows what’s going on behind you. It can also brake your hatchback to stop you from backing into a hazard. When you drive forward, the Traction Control System, Electronic Stability Control, and Vehicle Stability Management function together to smooth out your ride, keep you in control, and maximize your traction under uncertain conditions.
