2021 Kia Soul

Summer is here, meaning it is time to pack the car and head out across Utah and explore all this beautiful state has to offer. The 2021 Kia Soul is a fun, compact SUV that is perfect for any South Jordan adventure. With the unique styling customers love, the Kia Soul has always been a favorite and has become an icon since its debut in 2008. For the 2021 model year, the Soul now has improved suspension for the X-Line and GT models and a standard Rear Occupant Alert across all trims. Follow along as Jerry Seiner Kia South Jordan shows you why the 2021 Kia Soul is a must-have vehicle for the summer.


The 2021 Kia Soul is a compact SUV, which means it is pinned against lots of competition. What makes the Kia Soul a stand-out choice is its reasonable pricing. Starting at only $17,590 drivers will get a base “LX” model, which is equipped with features like a 2.0L 4-cylinder engine with 147 horsepower, 7-inch color touch-screen with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and manual or automatic drivetrain options. For a great price, the 2021 Kia Soul makes a big impact. Trim levels available for the Kia Soul include

  • LX
  • S
  • GT-Line
  • X-Line
  • EX
  • Turbo


Depending on the trim level you choose, your Kia Soul will cater to your unique style! The off-road-oriented “X-Line” trim is a great option for getting off the beaten path. Starting at $21,790, drivers will find notable features on the Soul X-Line, including rugged black exterior body trim with silver accents, fog lights, special roof trim, and exclusive 18-inch alloy X-Line wheels. If speed is what you need, consider the top tier 2021 Soul Turbo for $27,650. Soul Turbo drivers get the available 1.6L 4-cylinder turbo engine with 201 horsepower plus additional features, like GT-Line exterior appearance, LED headlights, sunroof, synthetic leather, and a 7-speed DCT transmission with paddle shifters. Among the six trim levels available for the 2021 Kia Soul, there is definitely a Soul for everyone this summer.


For an exceptionally priced SUV, the new Kia Soul packs quite a lot of technology into a small package. With UVO Link, Kia’s Access App for compatible smartphones, drivers gain access to convenient features all controlled by their smartphone. UVO Link features include

  • Remote Start with Climate Control
  • In-Vehicle Notification Center
  • 911 Connect with Roadside Assistance
  • Amazon Alexa
  • Google Assistant

Other notable technology features found on the 2021 Soul include an available 10.25-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and available wireless charging. Your passengers will be well-connected when traveling in the well-equipped Kia Soul.

Safety & Comfort

When you step inside the cabin of the 2021 Kia Soul, you will be greeted with a fun, yet inviting interior. Features like an available Harman Kardon audio system, mood lighting, 10-way power-adjustable driver seat, and 60/40 split-folding seats make the Kia Soul a pleasant and functional space when traversing across Utah. Thanks to the Soul’s box-like proportions, cargo space is a generous 62.1 cubic feet with rear seats folded. To ensure your family is safe when riding in a Kia Soul, the Kia Drive Wise safety suite provides great safety features in one convenient package. Kia Drive Wise features include

  • Forward Collision-Avoidance Alert (FCA)
  • Blind-Spot Collision Warning (BCW)
  • Lane Keeping Assist (LKA)
  • Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance (RCCA)
  • Smart Cruise Control (SCC)

The new Soul features an Iso-Structure body design, which reinforces the body integrity by using advanced high-strength steel to improve rigidity. This high-strength body, plus active safety features like a Traction Control System, Electronic Stability Control, and Vehicle Stability Control all work together to ensure peace of mind and protect you and your loved ones.
