The 2023 Kia Soul in Albuquerque NM Offers Exceptional Space in a Small Package
Since debuting in 2008, the innovative Kia Soul has remained a true original. Easily recognizable and highly sought after for its practicality, the 2023 Kia Soul in Albuquerque NM lives up to its reputation.
Slotting in the Kia lineup as the smallest of its vehicles, the Soul has an original design that stands out in several ways. It offers loads of room for people (even tall adults fit in the backseat!) and the cargo they need to take along on a trip. The interior is quite spacious, yet the Soul takes up only a small amount of space in your garage or driveway.
Because it was redesigned as an all-new model for 2020, the Kia Soul received just a few refreshes for the 2023 model. A few of the new features include a revamped front grille and bumper design, along with new headlights. You’ll also have a choice between 17 or 18-inch wheels. And depending on whether you want just the basics or feel the need for more creature comforts, you can choose from four different trims: the LX, S, GT-Line, or EX.
Performance and Power
No matter if you prefer fun or function, you won’t be let down with what the Kia Soul brings to your daily drive. This spunky subcompact comes standard equipped with an efficient 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine that can produce up to 147-horsepower and 132 lb-ft of torque. Paired with a standard Intelligent Variable Transmission, this setup will achieve a happy fuel economy rating of 29/35/31 MPG city/highway/combined, which is the type of capability you want in order to keep the numbers at the pump as minimal as possible, while keeping you on the road for longer. In addition, the Kia Soul has a Drive Mode Select feature which enables you to adjust the transmission and engine settings, thus giving you more control over how it performs.
Exterior Appearance of the 2023 Kia Soul in Albuquerque NM
The fresh look of the redesigned front end gives the Soul a bit of a new look, though it’s still easily recognizable as the iconic Kia Soul. Automatic headlight control is included on all trims, and you’ll fall in love with the multi-reflector headlamps that promise a brighter field of view. Positioning lights are available on all versions, but only the GT-Line includes LED lighting with optional LED fog lights. Roof rack mounting points are standard on all trims, while the higher trims also come equipped with a sunroof.
Some of the flashiest colors in vehicle paint can be found on the 2023 Kia Soul in Albuquerque NM, including Surf Blue, Mars Orange, and Inferno Red. The sporty GT-Line variants even offer a designer package with two-tone paint and interior options to match!
Inside the Kia Soul
Thanks to the upright shape of the Soul’s body, the interior feels roomy with up to 120 cubic feet of passenger volume. The high-tech and youthful appearance of the cabin gives way to an 8-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration. You can also bump up to the 10.25-inch screen, which comes with the addition of Sirius XM Radio, Navigation, and Kia Connect. Bluetooth technology comes standard on all trims so that you can maintain hands-free connectivity while you drive. Keep the excellent 6-speaker audio system that comes standard or opt for the Harmon-Kardon Audio System with 10 speakers for a premium sound.
Kia is committed to vehicle safety and provides a laundry list of active safety and driver-assist features to help you avoid dangerous situations. A forward-collision warning system with emergency braking, lane departure warning, lane-keeping assist, and blind-spot monitoring come standard. A host of other features, including a driver attention system, are also available.
