The 2018 Kia Soul wagon’s styling remains fresh and funky, and its interior offers room for five, or two people and a ton of cargo. Kia knows its intending audience is a young one, so Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are along for the ride, as are the UVO3 infotainment system, autonomous emergency braking and adaptive cruise control.
New Features and Revisions
For 2018, the Kia Soul sees the UVO3 infotainment system expanded to the Base Convenience package and made standard on the Soul Plus. The Plus Primo package becomes the Primo Lit package and gains HID headlights, LED positioning lights and a new Wild Orange paint option. A more powerful battery increases the Soul EV's full-charge electric range to 111 miles (up from last year's 93 miles), which is good, but can't match the new Nissan Leaf's 150 miles and pales beside the Chevrolet Bolt's 238.
