2012 model year changes

The Kia Soul has been refreshed for 2012. Updates include new side mirrors with integrated turn signals, a sculpted hood, a revised front end with new headlights and updated grille, as well as new taillights and rear bumper. The new Soul is slightly longer than its predecessor. Inside, changes include a standard tilt/telescopic steering wheel and revised stereo system. The Soul Sport has been dropped from the model range, leaving the base Soul, Soul +, and Soul !, the last of which now includes LED projector headlights with LED taillights. Powertrains have been updated as well. The 1.6L four is now direct-injected for increased efficiency, and power has been boosted as well, from 122 hp to 138 hp. The 2.0L found in the Soul + and Soul ! jumps from 142 hp to 164 hp. Both engines are now mated to a new 6-speed automatic, with a 6-speed manual available as well. Pricing starts at $13,900 for a manual-equipped Soul.

Special features for 2012

The 2012 Kia Soul is aimed squarely at the Scion crowd, with its funky styling, wild colors, personalized interior and exterior treatments, and kooky hip hop hamster advertising campaign. Improvements in performance and efficiency add tremendous value to the Soul, especially with a base price of $3,500 less than a comparable Scion.
