2021 Kia Soul Topeka KS

Meet the 2021 Kia Soul

There’s a handful of changes to look forward to with the 2021 Kia Soul. The most notable change is that every trim now comes with Rear Occupant Alert. This safety feature notifies the driver using a beep or a notification sent to your smartphone notifying you that someone is in the back seat. Other changes include new shock valves on the X-Line and GT-Line trim levels, increasing ride quality and comfort.

Two different engines are offered for the 2021 Soul, those being the base 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 147-horsepower. This can be paired with either a six-speed manual transmission or a CVT. The second engine option is featured on the Turbo trim level. This engine is a 1.6-liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine that makes 201-horsepower, and it’s paired with a seven-speed automatic transmission. Fuel economy wise the Soul performs well, doing a combined 31 mpg.

Kia created the Soul with the intent of giving its owners as much interior space as possible. The Soul seats five people comfortably and has 24.2 cubic feet of cargo space with the seats folded up and 62.1 cubic feet with the seats folded down. Kia’s designers were creative with the interior of the Soul, matching the creativeness of the exterior. You’ll find textured door-panel inserts, colorful trim, ambient lighting, and great technology features such as a smartphone charging pad, push-button ignition with keyless entry, and heating for seats and the steering wheel. Touchscreen infotainment with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto is standard and comes with either a 7.0- inch or 10.3-inch display with Kia’s latest UVO interface.

If you’re looking for an eye catching and fun family vehicle look no further than the 2021 Kia Soul. The Soul starts at $17,590. If you want to learn more about the Soul or if you’re interested in giving it a test drive, come on down to Briggs Kia.

Kia's New All-Electric Car, the EV6

Kia’s All-Electric, EV6 Reveal

We previously talked about how Kia has undergone changes, specifically rebranding and shifting their focus towards being a fully electric car company. Well, Kia has now officially revealed their first dedicated electric car, the EV6. Let’s check out the EV6 and what we know so far about this new impressive electric vehicle.

The EV6 will be a crossover SUV that has a bold and sleek exterior and a spacious and comfortable interior. The design of this electric crossover looks different from Kia’s other vehicles, and you can tell that Kia wants to start a new chapter with the release of the EV6. Kia will use a new dedicated EV platform, the Electric-Global Modular Platform (E-GMP), which will allow the EV6 to have a range of 311 miles. The charging of the vehicle will also be extremely fast thanks to the E-GMP platform, replenishing 62 miles of range in only 4 minutes. The E-GMP will also allow the EV6 to go from 0-60 in 3 seconds, which is impressive, especially considering this is a crossover and not a sports car.

The world premier of the EV6 will take place on March 30th, giving us more information on the specs of this incredible crossover. In fact, you can watch it here:

Stay tuned for more regarding the EV6 and all things Kia.
