Even base Kia models are pretty well-equipped and the Soul LX is no exception. Some surprising standard features are available 16-inch wheels come as standard equipment as does an 8-inch touch screen with Android Auto and Apple Carplay, Bluetooth connectivity, USB port, a backup camera and steering wheel mounted audio and cruise controls.
Mid-level S models build on the LX by adding a 10.25-inch touchscreen, Blind-Spot Collision Assist, body-color outside mirrors, Drive Mode Select, Lane Change Assist, Lane Keeping Assist, Rear Cross-Traffic Collision Warning, and Remote Keyless Entry.
The EX trim features a power sunroof, heated side mirrors, 17-inch wheels, heated front seats, voice activated navigation, and wireless device charging.
Stepping into a GT-Line trim level adds a 12V power outlet, 18-inch alloy wheels, dual center console USB charging ports, turn signal indicators in the mirrors, and a leather wrapped steering wheel and gearshift knob.
Safety features across the lineup include active lane departure, forward collision mitigation, front pedestrian detection, a driver attention alert and a traffic sign information system.
