By: Jeff Youngs, 9/3/2013
The Kia Soul is redesigned for the 2014 model year, and while it looks similar to the model it replaces, the 2014 Soul is new from the ground up, longer, wider, roomier and, according to Kia, more engaging to drive. When the new, redesigned Kia Soul goes on sale, it will be offered in Base, Plus, and Exclaim trim levels.

The Soul Base starts at $15,495 including a $795 destination charge, and includes a direct-injection, 1.6-liter 4-cylinder engine good for 130 horsepower, 4-wheel-disc anti-lock brakes, stability control, hill-start assist control, manual gearbox, and steel wheels with plastic wheel covers. Additionally, the Base model has air conditioning, power windows, power door locks, power heated side mirrors, and a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel. This least expensive version of the new Soul also includes Bluetooth connectivity, a USB port, auxiliary audio input jack, and satellite radio. The Soul's roof is ready to accommodate an optional roof rack, and this model can be upgraded with an automatic transmission, 16-inch aluminum wheels, cruise control, front and rear armrests, and remote keyless entry.

The 2014 Soul Plus ($18,995 including destination) adds these features plus a 164-horsepower engine, 17-inch aluminum wheels, turn signal indicators on the exterior mirror housings, and upgraded exterior trim. The Soul Plus is also offered with a greater array of options, including a UVO eServices package ($400) containing Kia's UVO infotainment system and eServices technology, a reversing camera, and automatic headlights. An Audio package ($1,400 and includes premium audio system with HD Radio and speaker illumination, navigation system with larger 8-inch display screen, automatic climate control system); Primo package ($3,000 and includes leather, heated front seats, panoramic sunroof, Smart Key with push-button ignition, fog lights); and an Eco package ($400 and includes Idle Stop & Go technology, 16-inch aluminum wheels, low rolling-resistance tires) are also optional for the Soul Plus trim level, as well as an automatic transmission.

The Soul Exclaim ($21,095 including destination) is equipped with a standard automatic transmission plus 18-inch aluminum wheels, LED front positioning lights, LED taillights, power-folding exterior mirrors, and UVO with eServices. A Sun & Sound package ($2,600) adds a panoramic sunroof, premium sound system, navigation system, and automatic climate control. Alternatively, buyers can choose The Whole Shabang package ($5,100), which includes the Sun & Sound package plus leather, heated front seats, and Smart Key. Fully equipped, the Soul Exclaim is priced at $26,195.

The 2014 Kia Soul goes on sale in the fourth quarter of 2013.
