2015 KIA SOUL: Refined interior, cutting-edge technology and striking road presence describes the transformed Kia Soul for 2015. Several new refinements are available, including UVO eServices package that provides a rear-camera display, fog lights and auto on/off headlights. A new color is called Cloud White, and an Umber color package adds premium Nappa leather seating surfaces, Nappa leather armrest accents and gloss black wheel inserts. Unchanged is the Soul upright stance, squared shoulders, wraparound greenhouse, high-mounted taillights and distinctive fender flares. Combining a longer wheelbase, overall width and a reduced overall height, adds a more aggressive edge to the Soul’s appearance. The Soul comes in three unique trim levels: Base, Plus and Exclaim. An overall, more premium look and feel to the ‘15 Soul’s interior comes from the soft-touch materials found on the instrument panel, center console and door panels. Available leather trimmed seating with improved lateral and thigh support, and the use of high-gloss piano-black trim pieces elevate the sophisticated look of the five passenger cabin. Most prominent in the new instrument panel is the available eight-inch touch screen – the largest ever offered on Soul. Also available on the new Soul is UVO eServices, Kia’s second-generation infotainment and telematics system. A wider opening for the liftgate, allows Soul to swallow more stuff, and when rear seats are down, the Soul can haul up to 53.4 cu. ft. of cargo. Motivation for the Base Soul is delivered by a gasoline direct injection 130-horsepower 1.6-liter all-aluminum DOHC four-cylinder engine, mated to a six-speed manual transmission or, optionally, to a six-speed automatic.. The Soul Plus and Exclaim models enjoy the more powerful 2.0-liter NU power plant rated at 164-hp, and available exclusively with the six-speed automatic. It is understandable why the Kia Soul such a dominate competitor in the “boxy” car segment.
