2020 Kia Soul LX Review and Price

The new Kia Soul LX 2020 has a stylish body design, improved interior and good technical characteristics. In addition, many useful options have appeared in the car. The Kia Soul LX has increased overall dimensions, a high level of comfort and a larger luggage compartment.

Exterior of the Kia Soul LX 2020

The Soul combines elements of both business and sporty style. This will be appreciated by representatives of different target audiences: both young people and older people. The new body is attractive with a non-standard design and a reasonable layout of all units.

The front of the car is characterized by a relatively slight slope of the windshield and a massive hood parallel to the roadway. A fairly large trapezoidal grille filled with coarse mesh and side diffusers take up a fair share of the front bumper area. The lower part is covered with plastic protection.

The new model has a very solid and representative side section. Structurally, the new Korean crossover is very different from other cars of this class, with classic proportions.

The rear end, which has undergone restyling, still remains quite recognizable. There is still the same large panoramic rear door window. However, the taillights have turned into one large crescent that surrounds the rear window. They converge under a large plastic trim that has a rear wiper.

Interior of the Kia Soul LX 2020

The fact that this car belongs to the third generation has affected the quality of the interior in the best way. The interior of the model even in the basic configuration has become much more interesting. The flagship crossover model is equipped with equipment typical of more expensive cars.

The sporty steering wheel is extended towards the driver and is very comfortable. On its side spokes there are buttons for controlling additional functions in the original round blocks. It can be adjusted for both height and reach.

The center console starts with an original block. It contains two airflow deflectors, under which there is a large touchscreen display of the multimedia system with additional buttons on the sides and two small ‘twists’ at the bottom. Below it is the alarm button.

Below is the climate control panel with a setting washer in the center and two round switches on the sides. Then comes the niche for little things.

Further, the center console smoothly passes into the main tunnel, on which the gearshift lever flaunts. Closer to the seats in the tunnel, two cup holders there are. There is a handbrake next to the driver’s seat. An armrest with a glove compartment under the cover is installed between the front seats.

The seats are upholstered in primitive fabric. Moreover, they are very functional and convenient. The front seats are aerodynamically shaped, heated and have good lateral support.

The rear sofa is more primitive compared to the front seats. Three passengers, of course, will sit there, but two people in the back are definitely better, since you can fold the center armrest located in the back. Furthermore, the luggage compartment volume is 360 l. It can be made at least twice as large by simply folding the rear seats.
