2013 Kia Soul Overview
What’s New for the 2013 Kia Soul
The 2013 Kia Soul is largely unchanged from the previous model.
2013 Kia Soul Exterior
The Kia Soul is a one-of-a-kind small, boxed-shaped wagon, and one of Kia’s best-selling cars. The Soul has an impressive list of standard features including 16-inch steel wheels, rear privacy glass, and power heated side mirrors.
Affordable upgrade packages or the Soul+ and Soul! trim levels allow you to fully deck out your Soul, if the standard features just aren’t enough.
2013 Kia Soul Performance
The base Soul gets a 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine creating 130 hp and 118 lb-ft of torque. A six-speed manual transmission comes standard, which includes a hill-start assist function.
2013 Kia Soul Efficiency
The EPA’s estimated fuel economy for the base Soul is 26 mpg combined, not bad for a little wagon with a big personality.
2013 Kia Soul Interior
Optional equipment is similar to last year as well, but with an additional panoramic sunroof and an upgraded Uvo eServices package which includes streaming internet radio capability.
Standard interior features include air conditioning, full power accessories, cloth upholstery, a 60/40 split-folding rear seat, Bluetooth phone connectivity, and a six-speaker sound system which includes satellite radio, CD player, USB port, and an auxiliary jack.
2013 Kia Soul Safety
