2016 Kia Soul Priced at $16,515; Adds Two New Packages


IRVINE, California — The base 2016 Kia Soul with a six-speed manual transmission is priced at $16,515, including an $825 destination charge, reflecting a $500 price increase over the 2015 model.

But the base 2016 Kia Soul with a six-speed automatic transmission is priced at $18,015, including shipping, reflecting no price increase over the 2015 model.

The 2016 Kia Soul, a carryover model, is expected to roll into Kia dealerships soon.

The 2016 Kia Soul + (Plus) starts at $20,015, including shipping, for a price increase of $500 versus the 2015 model.

The top-of-the-line 2016 Kia Soul ! (Exclaim) is priced at $21,915, including shipping, up $300 versus the 2015 model.

Alloy wheels now come standard on all Soul models. Base models equipped with the $500 Convenience package add a 4.3-inch color touchscreen, SiriusXM satellite radio and a rearview camera.

A new $500 Designer Collection package kicks the styling up a notch with a two-tone exterior paint treatment. Choices are white with a red roof or red with a black roof. Other details include 18-inch black-spoke alloy wheels and a leather-wrapped steering wheel and gearshift knob.

Also new to the Soul ! trim is a $4,400 Premium package that adds a long list of amenities and new safety features, including a forward-collision warning system and lane-departure warning system, both of which are new to the Soul.

The optional interior Umber Color package, priced at $1,100, now includes HID headlights for the 2016 model year.

The base Soul is equipped with a 130-horsepower 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine linked to a standard six-speed manual transmission. A six-speed automatic is optional. The + and ! trim levels get a 164-hp 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine and a standard six-speed automatic transmission.

The key Soul competitor is the Scion xB, but one could easily compare it to one of the similarly sized and equipped subcompact SUVs like the Fiat 500X, Honda HR-V or Mazda CX-3.

Pricing on the 2016 Kia Soul EV was announced earlier.

Edmunds says: Prices inch upward on most Kia Soul trims, but they still remain lower than the similarly sized and equipped subcompact SUVs that have recently been introduced.
