Expert Rating

Not Available

Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

2022 Kia Soul: Preview, Pricing, Photos, Release Date

Model Preview

The Kia Soul returns for the 2022 model year with minor enhancements. This year, Kia’s new badging is evident on its hood, liftgate, and wheel center caps. Also, Kia made updates to the Soul’s S, X-Line and GT-Line trims. These include a standard 10.25-inch display screen with navigation and dual automatic climate control. In addition, push-button start with engine immobilizer, wireless smartphone charger, and two USB chargers are included. Lastly, the manual transmission is gone; package updates round out the remaining changes.

The current and third-generation Kia Soul rolled out in 2020. It continues a boxy look that once identified a small collection of competing models, including the Scion xB, Nissan Cube, and the Honda Element. Only the Soul survives, a tribute to this model’s lasting appeal. The current model features a striking front fascia with a narrow tiger-nose upper grille, sleek headlamps, and a gaping lower grille. Its profile is enhanced by its tight proportions with a roof that sits low and a high beltline that suddenly rises to meet the roof at its rear. The rear fascia advances the square theme with boomerang taillamps presenting a dramatic flourish.

Inside, the Soul matches hard plastics with soft-touch materials. The dark colors, though, don’t do it much favor though as the overall look is utilitarian a best. This model seats five or four very comfortably. The front seats are placed high, which helps improve forward visibility. One of the Soul’s strengths is its cargo space, measuring 24.2 cubic feet behind the rear seat or 62.1 cubic feet with the rear seat folded.


Only the base LX trim comes with a 7-inch touch-screen display as all other trims have a 10.25-inch screen. Standard features include a six-speaker audio system, one USB port, Bluetooth, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone compatibility. Among the upgrades are a wireless charging pad, HD Radio, satellite radio, and a Harman Kardon audio system.

On the safety front, all but the base trim offers a long list of driver safety features. Still, an available Technology Package brings in these features for a price. These features include forward collision avoidance assist, lane-keeping assist, lane-change assist, and driver attention warning. Also, blind-spot collision warning, rear cross-traffic collision avoidance assist, and forward collision avoidance assist are available.

Most Soul models come with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine with 147 horsepower and 132 pound-feet of torque. Power travels to the front wheels utilizing a continuously variable transmission. The Turbo trim has a 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine with 201 horsepower and 195 pound-feet of torque. This model also sends power to the front wheels, utilizing a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. The entry-level LX with manual transmission has been discontinued.

Stay tuned for our full review.

Pricing & Release Date

The 2022 Kia Soul goes on sale this summer and available in six trims. The prices include a $1,175 destination charge and are as follows: LX ($20,365), S ($22,665), X-Line ($23,765), GT-Line ($23,765), EX ($24,665), and Turbo ($28,965). With the loss of the LX with manual, the Soul's starting price has increased by $1,600 from the current MSRP of $18,765.

This compact model should be compared to the Chevrolet Trax, Fiat 500L, and the Nissan Kicks. Also consider the Kia Niro when looking for a small people-mover.
