Kia Soul Sales Figures

Kia Soul

Here you will find monthly and yearly Canadian, Chinese, European and U.S. sales figures for the Kia Soul. The Kia Soul is a subcompact crossover SUV produced by the South Korean automaker Kia Motors. Since its debut in 2008, the Soul has become one of Kia’s most recognizable and distinctive vehicles, thanks to its unique design and character. The Soul is often described as a “boxy” car, similar to vehicles like the Scion xB or Nissan Cube, but it has carved out its own niche in the market. The Soul is known for its funky design, comfortable ride, and long list of features. It is also a good choice for those who are looking for a car that is fun to drive.

Kia Soul Overview

Introduced in 2008, the first-generation Soul was characterized by its distinctive design, with a boxy shape, high roofline, and upright stance. The vehicle gained attention for its stylish interiors and value proposition. The Soul underwent a redesign but retained its signature boxy shape when the second generation car showed up in 2013. This generation brought improved materials, better driving dynamics, and more features to the lineup. The latest version of the Soul was introduced in 2019 and had an even more refined design with modern touches. The interior quality, technology, and safety features also saw significant upgrades.

The Soul’s boxy and upright design is its most distinguishing feature. Elements like the rear pillar and tail lights, often referred to as “boomerang” lights, give the Soul a unique character. Over the years, various trims, including sportier versions and those with contrasting roof colors, have been introduced to appeal to different demographics.

The Soul is available in both gasoline and electric (EV) models. Gasoline-powered models are powered by a 2.0L four-cylinder engine that produces 147 horsepower and 132 lb-ft of torque. Electric models are powered by a 109-kilowatt electric motor that produces 201 pound-feet of torque. All models come standard with front-wheel drive, but all-wheel drive is available on gasoline models.

Kia Soul Sales Figures

The Kia Soul has been lauded for its blend of style, practicality, and value. It appeals to a diverse range of buyers, from younger drivers attracted by its distinctive design and customization options to older individuals who appreciate its ease of entry and spaciousness. The Soul is sold in numerous markets globally. While its specifications and features might vary based on regional preferences and regulations, its distinctive design remains consistent.
