Long have we waited for information on when the Kia Soul Turbo would be available and it sounds like the more powerful Soul will be available as the 2017 Kia Soul !. Kia heard the wishes of Soul fans and decided to offer buyers a sportier option in the popular urban crossover. In addition to the turbocharged engine the new 2017 Kia Soul ! Will feature specialized features both on the interior and the exterior. Kia did not announce an official release date for the 2017 Kia Soul but did give us information on the new turbo engine as well as specs on features to expect in the 2017 Soul.
The 2017 Soul ! is powered by a 1.6-liter turbo engine that not only adds 40 horsepower but also improves fuel economy.
