What To Expect

The 2025 Kia Soul will likely arrive as a carryover of the current model, which was last updated in 2023. With the newer Seltos positioned as Kia's volume entry-level crossover, we suspect 2025 will be the final year for the long-running Soul.

The Soul is more spacious inside than its subcompact footprint suggests. Five can fit in relative comfort, and cargo space reaches 62.1 cubic feet. As expected for this price class, the Soul starts with just the basics, like an 8-inch touchscreen and power side mirrors. All but the base trim carry a 10.25-inch touchscreen, navigation, wireless charging, and proximity keyless access. The top trims offer heated front seats, a sunroof, and a Karman Kardon sound system.

2025 Kia Soul Engine & Specs

We expect no changes to the Soul's powertrain. All models currently carry a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that develops 147 horsepower and 132 lb-ft of torque. A continuously variable transmission (CVT) and front-wheel drive complete the mechanical setup. All-wheel drive has never been available on the Soul.

The sporty GT-Line trim gets firmer suspension tuning and 18-inch wheels.

The EPA rates the Soul at 28 miles per gallon city, 33 mpg highway, and 30 combined.

2025 Kia Soul Safety

The Soul will likely retain the current roster of safety and driver-assistance features. Standard fare includes lane-keeping assist, driver alertness monitoring, automatic high beams, a rear seat reminder, and automatic emergency braking. Blind-spot monitoring is optional on the base model and standard everywhere else. Adaptive cruise control is available on the GT-Line only. Surround-view cameras aren't offered on the Soul.

The current Soul receives a four-star overall safety rating from NHTSA. Last year, the Soul scored "Good" in the six main crash tests conducted by IIHS.

2025 Kia Soul Price

With no changes on the horizon, the Soul will probably be priced just slightly above the current model. The 2024 Soul lineup's price ranges from $21,315 to $25,615 including destination.

The Soul competes with other subcompact crossover like the Chevrolet Trax, Honda HR-V, Hyundai Venue, and Mitsubishi Outlander Sport.

2025 Kia Soul Release Date

We expect the 2025 Kia Soul to arrive at dealers in the fall of 2024. We'll update this page with further details on the upcoming Soul as they become available.
