Pricing, Standard Features, and Performance

While the GT Line and GT Line Turbo trims have similar names and a similar sporty appearance, they are likely to appeal to two very different shoppers. The mid-level GT Line trim offers some of the basic amenities and active safety equipment as other base 2020 Soul models with a few appearance-focused upgrades.

Vehicle shoppers can also expect to find the same base engine and performance specs on the GT Line trim as on other lower and mid-level 2020 Soul trims. Because the GT Line upgrades consist mainly of appearance features like red exterior accents, matte silver interior accents, and 18-inch alloy wheels with a trim-exclusive design, the starting price for this trim stays firmly on the budget-friendly end of the spectrum with a starting MSRP of just $20,290.

The GT Line Turbo trim is the 2020 Soul lineup’s highest trim level and offers the sporty appearance found on the GT Line trim plus a generous helping of performance-focused upgrades and premium-level amenities. Under the hood, drivers will find a 1.6-liter Turbocharged Inline 4-cylinder engine rated at 201 horsepower paired with a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission and a sport-tuned suspension. Inside, a sunroof, auto climate control, a Harman Kardon premium audio system, a head up display, heated front seats, a heated steering wheel, a wireless phone charger, speaker lights, and a 10.25-inch touchscreen display help level up the on-road experience. Of course, the upgrades come at a cost and the GT line Turbo trim costs significantly more than the GT Line trim with a starting MSRP of $27,490.
