2020 Kia Soul Trim Levels

2020 Kia Soul x-line driving through desert

Since its inception over a decade ago, the Kia Soul has served as an iconoclast for the subcompact crossover segment. Not only did the fun and functional Soul help kick-start this class, but it still works tirelessly to remind other vehicles that they can be practical, sporty and filled with driver-centered comfort and convenience technology. Needless to say, this mission has made the Kia Soul one of the most popular and recognizable vehicles on the road today.

Having only undergone one major reimagining in that time, the Kia Soul has been due for a redesign. The 2020 model year brings that redesign. Kia has given the 2020 Kia Soul a bold new face with a sporty and menacing front grille. They’ve also brought new trim levels that allow you to select something more rugged and outdoorsy if that is your flavor. Here are how the trim levels compare for the 2020 Kia Soul!
