Soul Adds Style and Convenience with Two New Packages

2016 Kia Soul
•Forward Collision Warning1 and Lane Departure Warning1 systems round out a new Premium package
•Soul gets extra dose of style thanks to new Designer Collection that dresses it up with a two-tone paint scheme and other unique elements2016 Kia Soul
IRVINE, Calif., Aug. 6, 2015 – The extremely popular Soul ups its 'wow' factor for the 2016 model year with a host of new style and convenience features, some of which actually debuted on the K900 luxury sedan. (concept carz) In addition, owners can further express their unique individualism through a new Designer Collection that plays up the Soul's fun-loving attitude with a two-tone paint scheme.

2016 Kia Soul
Three unique trim levels (Base, Plus, and Exclaim) remain, and each one adds new features for the 2016 model year. Alloy wheels now come standard across all models. Meanwhile, Base models equipped with the Convenience Package add a 4.3-inch color touchscreen, SiriusXM®2 satellite radio, and integrated Rear Camera Display3.


2016 Kia SoulThe standard features list grows for the Plus model, which now gets gloss black bumper 'tusks,' fog lights, and integrated Rear Camera Display3. A new Designer Collection package, inspired by its all-electric sibling, brings new style with two visually striking two-toned color combinations: white with a red roof, or red with a black roof. In addition, the Designer Collection also adds 18-inch alloy wheels with black spokes, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel and gearshift knob. The Exclaim now comes standard with leather-trimmed seats. Also new to Exclaim is the Premium Package, which elevates the driving experience with desirable convenience features including Forward Collision Warning System (FCWS)1 and Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS)1, both of which are new to the Soul. The camera-based LDWS helps to monitor the Soul's position and provides visual and auditory warnings to the driver when the vehicle begins to drift too close to the lane markers. Other creature comforts that come as part of the Premium Package include navigation4, an upgraded Infinity®5audio system, string-LED front speaker surround mood lighting, a panoramic sunroof, ventilated front driver and passenger seats, seat heaters for all four outboard positions, a 10-way power adjustable driver's seat, a leather-wrapped and heated steering wheel, and a leather-wrapped gearshift knob.

The optional interior Úmber Color Package, which is available with either the Shadow Black, Titanium, Fathom Blue or Cloud White exterior colors, now benefits from HID projector headlights for the 2016 model year. Also included with the option package is premium Nappa leather seating surfaces and door armrest accents.


Motivation for the Base Soul is delivered by a gasoline direct injection (GDI) 130-horsepower (at 6,300 rpm) 1.6-liter all-aluminum DOHC four-cylinder engine. The GAMMA engine produces 118 lb.-ft. of torque at 4,850 rpm. The Plus and Exclaim models enjoy the more powerful 2.0-liter NÚ power plant with GDI technology. Power is rated at 164 horsepower at 6,200 rpm and 151 lb.-ft. of torque at a 4,000 rpm. The 1.6-liter engine is mated to a six-speed manual transmission or, optionally, to a six-speed automatic. The Plus and Exclaim models are available exclusively with the six-speed automatic.
