It’s a actual cautiously active Kia box. With the Soul alone in its third year of production, Kia has addressed what it admits was the car’s capital weakness by way of two upgraded engines and new transmissions.

First, the important part: The abject 1.6-liter four-cylinder now makes 138 hp and 123 lb-ft of torque, up from 122 and 115, acknowledgment to the accession of absolute injection. The Soul’s 2.0-liter four now makes 164 hp and 148 lb-ft, increases of 22 hp and 11 lb-ft. Six-speed chiral and automated transmissions alter a brace of five-speed sticks and a four-speed auto. The new transmissions advice to access the Soul’s EPA ammunition abridgement with the 1.6-liter from aftermost year’s 26 mpg city/31 artery with either chiral to 27/35; the 2.0’s ratings acceleration from 24/30 to 26/34.

Allow us to point out the administration changes. The pug face’s lower fascia has been revised with a added trapezoidal lower lip and beyond fog lamps. Out aback is a analogously new, wider-looking fascia beneath the liftgate. Top-of-the-line Soul Exclaim (Kia wants us to put an italicized assertion mark there, but we refuse) models now accommodate LED daytime active lights and taillights. And that’s about it.

How Does It Drive?

In a appealing accustomed manner. The sole Soul we collection in and about Seoul was a 2.0-liter with the automatic. It had affluence of ability for casual assignment on South Korea’s well-maintained highways. The six-speed auto is a all-inclusive advance over the four-speed. It accouterment quickly—although we did agenda a slight adjournment during some downshifts—and its taller final-drive arrangement keeps the agent quieter (and added efficient) aback cruising. Those Souls with the upgraded 1.6-liter should accomplish analogously to the approachable 2.0-liter models, which hit 60 in 7.9 seconds; the revised 2.0-liter should be acceptable for a 0-to-60 time in the low 7s.

Although we didn’t sample it on a Soul, Kia did acquiesce us to drive a 2012 Rio5 able with its “idle stop and go” (ISG) system. ISG is a simple, humble stop/start arrangement for auto-equipped cars. It turns off the agent aback the amount permits at a standstill and fires it aback up aback your bottom comes off the anchor pedal. Later this year, we will get a Soul Eco, which will array ISG with low-rolling-resistance tires and an active-eco ambience that dulls burke response. Eco Souls will see ammunition breadth access to 29/36 with the 1.6-liter and 27/35 with the 2.0. Chiral buyers will accept to exercise their key wrists to see agnate gains.

How Does It Stack Up?

Kia’s access charcoal our best in the boxlike little auto segment, adverse off as it does adjoin the Nissan Cube and Scion xB. (In case you’re wondering, the Honda Element is asleep for 2012.) The Soul’s newfound ability solidifies that position. Plus, the Soul comes in brown, with an alternative two-tone autogenous whose trim pieces and bench inserts admonish us of arctic Coke. Delicious arctic Coke. Newly accessible accessories for 2012 includes Kia’s Uvo infotainment arrangement and an Infinity sound-system upgrade.

What’s the Cost?

Much to no one’s surprise, Kia has kept the 2012 Soul’s amount appealing abutting to that of aftermost year’s model, with stickers seeing an access of $600 to $800. A abject Soul with the 1.6 and a chiral starts at $14,650, with the automated abacus $1800 to the price. The Soul Plus starts at $17,050 and includes added equipment, including the 2.0-liter; an auto costs an added admirable here. The top-spec Exclaim is auto-only and runs $20,350. The Sport model, with its different abeyance tune, dies off for 2012.

So that’s added power, bigger efficiency, and basically the aforementioned price, all in the aforementioned useful, packaging-focused little hatch. Planned obsolescence with no absolute downside.
