The new Kia Soul 2023 features refreshed design elements inside and out. Kia Soul redefined the boxy small-car segment when it was first launched in 2009. Kia Soul has always been set apart by its bold yet functional design and the 2023 model year continues that tradition with an all-new front fascia. The new grill is set off with available LED headlights and redesigned fog lights. New Daytime Running Lamps and turn signals round out the front-end redesign. New available 17- and 18-inch alloy wheels and a redesigned rear fascia and taillights complete the exterior enhancements. Simplifying the line-up for 2023, the Kia Soul is offered in LX, S, EX, GT-line tech trims. And the turbo model and X-Line trim level have been dropped from the line-up. The 2023 Kia Soul will arrive at dealerships in late summer. For 2023, Kia Soul is powered by a single powertrain. The efficient 2.0-liter inline four cylinder produces 147 bhp at 6,200 rpm and lays down 178 nm of torque at 4,500 rpm through the front wheels. Kia's Intelligent Variable Transmission is standard across all variants Kia has been working to simplify the Soul line-up for a few years now: after dropping the base models manual transmission last year, it is now killing off the optional 201-horsepower Turbo engine and the rugged-looking X-Line trim level along with the 2023 Soul's facelift.
