What New Features Come with the 2018 Kia Soul?

2018 Kia Soul vs. 2017 Kia Soul features paint colors and specs

2018 Kia Soul Features and Specs vs. 2017 Kia Soul 

When you think about it, the Kia Soul has owned the 2010s.  Whether it’s because you know the vehicle from its popular hamster commercials, or because the Soul has been a mainstay on dealer lots, or because of the all-new engine option (a turbo-charged 201 horsepower beast) that arrived in the 2017 model, there’s no denying this multi-purpose crossover is very fun, stylish and versatile. 

So now that the 2018 Kia Soul has arrived on the dealership lot, what new tweaks or upgrades can we expect for the crossover that nearly has it all?  And how does it compare to the 2017 model year?  We’ll look at both!
