While the buzz might currently be centered around the soon to release 2020 Kia Telluride, we’d also like to keep you informed of other major news from the Kia brand. That would be the big redesign of the 2020 Kia Soul. Already a big success worldwide due to its affordable pricing, unique look, and spacious interior, the Kia Soul further improves with a sleek and stylish upgraded look along with plenty of new technology.

Premiering late last year at the Los Angeles Auto Show, the pictures we’ve included obviously speak for themselves in terms of aesthetic changes between the 2019 and 2020 models of the Kia Soul. However, while the elegant makeover of the poppy Soul is appreciated, that’s just the beginning of the new levels of charm added to the 2020 Kia Soul. With so many changes present, let’s just start with the following overview of the 2020 Kia Soul:




Standard 147 Horsepower and 132 lb-ft of Torque 10.25” Touchscreen Display and 8” Head-Up Display Slim and Sharp Headlight and Taillight Designs
Upgraded 201 Horsepower and 195 lb-ft of Torque Mood Lighting System Longer and Taller Profile
Intelligent Variable Transmission Qi Wireless Charging Roof Rack Mounting Points
Sport-Tuned Suspension Harman/Kardon® Premium Audio Absent ‘Tiger Nose’ Kia Staple

Originally thought to have a summer 2019 release date, the 2020 Kia Soul has now been set with a spring 2019 release date from the Kia company, meaning it will likely release shortly after, or alongside, the upcoming 2020 Kia Telluride SUV.
