With style and versatility to spare, the 2020 Kia Soul is the perfect choice for car shoppers who want something that stands out on the streets without sacrificing on-road comfort and convenience. If a compact crossover is your next vehicle of choice, you may be surprised with how well the quirky Kia Soul stands up to other class leaders in the segment in terms of standard amenities, passenger and cargo space, and smooth on-road handling.

For the 2020 model year, the Kia Soul is available in six trim levels: LX, S, X-Line, EX, GT-Line, and GT-Line Turbo. Today, we are helping drivers determine which base trim level is the best fit for their needs by focusing specifically on what the LX and S trims have to offer. Learn more below.

2020 Kia Soul S Trim Offers Standard Active Safety

While both the 2020 Kia Soul LX and S trims should offer drivers many of the creature comforts they need to enjoy their time on the road, the S trim ups the ante with a handful of additional active safety features that aren’t available on base models. If active safety is on your vehicle wish list, the bump in starting price from the uber-affordable LX trim to the still competitive S trim will be worth the cost. Check out the standard active safety equipment found on the 2020 Soul S trim below.

S Trim Active Safety Features:

  • Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist
  • Lane Keeping Assist
  • Driver Attention Warning
  • Blind Spot Collision Warning
  • Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist
  • Lane Change Assist

In addition to the active safety listed above, the S trim is also outfitted with selectable drive modes that offer drivers more control in different weather conditions. All 2020 Kia Soul models come standard with a 7-inch touchscreen display, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, and split-folding rear seats, so no matter which trim you land on connectivity and a versatile cabin are at your disposal.
