Is the Kia Soul AWD?

2020 Kia Soul on pavement

Many drivers are interested in an all-wheel drive vehicle. And for those Independence drivers looking into the 2020 Kia Soul, the question of “is the Kia Soul all-wheel drive?” is one that comes up often. Unfortunately, there is no Kia Soul AWD available for purchase this year — but that doesn’t mean you should rule it out as an option!

Is the Kia Soul Front-Wheel Drive Your Only Option?

Thought there currently is no Kia Soul AWD option, drivers that choose this compact SUV will still have plenty of ways to customize their powertrain and drivetrain to their liking.

  • Most Kia Soul models include a 2.0-liter In-line 4-cylinder engine, producing 147 hp and 132 lb-ft of torque. Those who upgrade all the way to the GT Line Turbo trim will find even more to love in their 1.6-liter turbocharged In-line 4-cylinder engine, which generates up to 201 hp and 195 lb-ft of torque.
  • The baseline Soul LX can be equipped with a Manual Transmission or an Intelligent Variable Transmission. The IVT (standard on most other models) offers better fuel economy, but some drivers prefer the M/T for the more engaging drive that it offers. Upgrade to the GT Line Turbo for a 7-Speed Dual Clutch transmission that combines the best elements of both!

If you’re insistent on a Kia AWD model, consider the new Kia Sorento, the Kia Sportage, or the Kia Stinger. Each of these models gives drivers the style and high-tech features of a Kia SUV with the AWD drivetrain Raytown drivers want.

Kia Soul Safety Features

Drivers tend to choose AWD vehicles because of the added safety that these systems offer. Although you’ll have to stick with front-wheel drive on the Kia Soul, this model’s array of standard features includes:

  • Electronic Stability Control (ESC)
  • Vehicle Stability Management (VSM)
  • Hill-Start Assist Control (HAC)
  • Tire-Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)
  • Electronic Brake-Force Distribution (EBD)

Higher up on the Kia Soul trim levels, you’ll find you can get behind the wheel of a model equipped with Smart Cruise Control, a Head-Up Display, LED Headlights, and much more! In addition, drivers can rest assured they’re choosing a safe model as the new Kia Soul safety ratings from recent years included a Top Safety Pick designation from the IIHS.
