IRVINE, Calif., June 22, 2021 - With sales of Kia’s iconic Soul up nearly 20 percent year-on-year, the 2022 model arrives largely as a carryover with minor visual enhancements, the most apparent being the bold new Kia badge on the hood, liftgate and wheel center caps.

Updates to the S, X-Line and GT-Line include a standard 10.25-inch display screen with navigation, dual automatic climate control, push-button start with engine immobilizer, wireless smartphone charger and dual USB chargers.

The LX with manual transmission variant is discontinued. The new LX Technology Package adds 16-inch alloy wheels and bundles several advanced driver-assistance systems, including: Blind Spot Collision Warning, Rear Cross-Traffic Collision Avoidance Assist, Lane Change Assist, Forward Collision Avoidance Assist, Lane Keeping Assist and Driver Attention Warning.1 Additionally, for the LX, the standard screen on the head unit is now eight inches (up one inch from last year’s model).
