The All-New 2020 Kia Soul Brings the Goods

Thursday, March 14th, 2019


Those well informed in the auto industry like to talk about the best times to shop for a car and how to get a good deal. Many like the joke that the best time is after Halloween – just like vendors and grocery stores that discount candy after the event is over, the last quarter of the year is also when new vehicles start coming out – like the newly redesigned 2020 Kia Soul, one of the first vehicles we’ll see from Kia Motors new GT lineup. With the arrival of the 2020 model in dealerships in late 2019, consumers can grab a deal on the outgoing 2019 model, but we’re not sure if someone can really pass up the all-new 2020 Kia Soul.

All-New Kia Soul

In late October 2018, Kia Motors let the news slip, and during the 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show, the 2020 Kia Soul was revealed alongside its electric variant, the 2020 Kia Soul EV. The two shared some aesthetics and features, including a new wrap around windshield that gives the entire front fascia a slick look, but only the 2020 Kia Soul has any mentions of a new lineup from Kia Motors. Undisclosed as much as their new GT lineup, the 2020 Kia Soul also features an X-line trim, suggesting Kia Motors has many plans bubbling up.

In October 2018 (hint), Kia Motors announced the new direction they’re taking the business in. The 2018 Kia Stinger sports car had a larger impact on the automaker than we may have thought because after the Kia Stinger GT, Kia Motors decided to open an exclusive GT line and produce more GT models. Think sports car, but with high-end premium features that could land it in the luxury car segment. After all, the Kia Stinger is faster than many high-end luxury vehicles in a race, why not up the ante?
