2019 Kia Soul

The Soul has actually been a strong seller, a brand name ambassador, and a visual example for Kia, however as the existing model has actually continued, the numbers have actually dipped. In 2016, the company moved 145,000 of the softly geometric runabouts, a number that reduced by 30,000 for the ’17 model year in a more remarkable decrease than the industry-wide disintegration of sales in the exact same duration. We ‘d like to blame the absence of an au courant Hamstar Edition, however the truth is that the present Soul is aging– a procedure sped up by the arrival of lots of new rivals in its sector. As much as Kia would have you think that the new Stinger sport tourer is its image leader, in the meantime, that title still comes from the fun-signifying Soul. Making the next model a lot more enticing to consumers is critical.

2019 Kia Soul Platform

The 2019 Kia Soul will share a platform with the soon-to-arrive Hyundai Kona and the Kia Stonic. The latter, like other B-segment utelets, provides a more standard take on the sector than the upright Soul, however we, like Hyundai-Kia, figure that will not matter much. With Scion and its xB having actually gone the method of the dodo, and Nissan’s Cube got rid of to some Picassofied unbalanced limbo, there are however 2 alternatives for those who jones for a Soul-like item: the Soul and the airier (within), more gelatinous (outdoors) Fiat 500L, and we’re sorry we raised the latter.

2019 Kia Soul Powertrain

Kia presently uses a naturally aspirated 130-hp 1.6-liter inline-four, a 2.0-liter 4 draining 161 horse power, and a turbocharged 1.6-liter 4 great for 201 horse power, in addition to the electrical Soul EV. Considered that Hyundai is prepping an electrical variation of the Kona, the Soul EV’s ongoing presence is practically ensured. The internal-combustion powertrains are where things get intriguing. Sources recommend that, while the Kona/Stonic will use a mechanical AWD system, the Soul might feature rear wheels driven by means of electrical motor. It might be much like exactly what Kia utilized in the Trail’ ster principle car it showed in 2015, and would suggest including a hybrid or plug-in hybrid variation to the range.

Hyundai’s Kona will get here with your option of a 2.0-liter inline-four or a turbocharged 1.6-liter 4, and as such, we anticipate the Soul to hang onto its 2.0 and 1.6 turbo. Kia will desire the base Soul to stay competitively priced, which likely demands the retention of the naturally aspirated 1.6 at the bottom of the line. We would not be amazed to see the six-speed automated continue its pairing with the naturally aspirated engines, while the 1.6 turbo is a lock for the dual-clutch system that is presently discovered in the Soul Turbo. The schedule of a manual transmission on the next Soul is something of an open concern, however we ‘d a minimum of anticipate it to be readily available on the 1.6.
