What's New in the 2015 Kia Soul?

2015 marks the first year for the Soul EV. Aside from its electric powertrain, the Soul EV distinguishes itself from the standard Soul with unique colors, a white cap roof, flush wheels for improved aerodynamics and dual charge ports concealed behind a sliding panel in the plastic grille panel. 

Which Soul is the Best?

Considering there's only a $2,000 difference between the two trims, we say go for the Soul EV Plus. Its heated and ventilated front seats are worth every extra penny, and the park-assist feature is a nice way to ensure that the bumpers won't get beaten up when parallel parking. Find a Kia Soul EV for sale


How Much Does a 2015 Kia Soul Cost?

The Kia Soul EV is offered in two trims: base and Plus.

The Soul EV base ($34,525) includes 16-inch lightweight alloy wheels, keyless entry with push-button start, power windows, mirrors and door locks, auto headlights, automatic climate control with driver-zone-only feature, heated front seats, a heated steering wheel, a height-adjustable driver's seat, a tilt-telescopic steering column, a trip computer, a unique EV-oriented gauge cluster, climate scheduling (allows preset heating or cooling of the vehicle while charging), Flex Steer driver-selectable power steering and a rear backup camera, plus an AM/FM/CD/satellite radio with six speakers, navigation, UVO voice-activated infotainment and an iPod/USB port. Also standard is a 120-volt charging cable and dual charging ports (one AC, one DC Fast Charge).

The Soul EV Plus ($36,525) adds fog lights, leather seats, power-folding mirrors, front and rear parking sensors, heated and ventilated front seats, a padded leatherette dash pad and door armrests, an auto-dimming rearview mirror and heated rear seats.

Kia Soul Safety

Is the 2015 Kia Soul a Safe Car?

The 2015 Kia Soul EV comes with a complete armory of the latest safety features including front, front side-impact, and front and rear side-curtain airbags. Also on board are anti-lock brakes, electronic traction and stability control, hill-start assist, and because EVs run so silently, a pedestrian warning system that creates a virtual engine noise at low speeds.

As for crash-test results, neither the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration nor the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has tested the Soul EV. The gasoline-powered Soul does very well, however, earning an overall 5-star rating from the government and a Top Safety Pick rating from IIHS.
