2018 and 2017 Kia Soul Exclaim trim level specs with 201 HP

2017 and 2018 Kia Soul Exclaim ! Trim Performance Specs and Benefits 

Did you know the Kia Soul has more power than ever? This iconic yet iconoclastic crossover with a unique boxy shape proves that when we seek improvements in drive-feel, design and power, sometimes you need to “think inside the box.” 

We normally focus on one model year when we talk about the specs and benefits of a particular vehicle. In this case we will focus on two model years with the Kia Soul, 2017 and 2018, but on only one trim option, the Exclaim (!), since it comes with a new turbo-boosted engine that provides 201 horsepower for this multi-purpose crossover! 

We will share specs of the Kia Soul Exclaim trim with you, and also provide you links to learn more or take this vehicle for a test drive!
