We mentioned the 2017 Kia Soul Turbo a couple weeks ago and also said something about letting you know when we learn more. That’s today as Kia has announced the specifications of the new turbo Soul.

The standard Kia Soul is a good seller both in standard and EV guise. They are everywhere in our cities. The combination of youthful looks, practical interiors, space for passengers and good engines make the Soul the ideal choice for busy families or anyone who wants to get around quickly and comfortably.

The Kia Soul EV is a very accomplished electric vehicle that is proving very popular with Canadians. We sell quite a few of them for their interior space, quality cabin, great looks and decent performance. Of course, the very competitive Kia pricing might have something to do with it too. You get a lot of car for your money whether you choose a Soul or any Kia model!

2017 Kia Soul Turbo
The 2017 Kia Soul Turbo is all that and more. It takes the fun of the standard Soul and bolts a turbo onto its 1.6-litre four cylinder. Kia have announced that the turbo Soul will deliver 201 hp and will hit 0 62 mph in 7.8 seconds. While the stop light grand prix isn’t why you would buy a Soul, it’s a marker of how much power will be on tap.

As well as the turbocharger, the 2017 Kia Soul Turbo will have the existing 7 speed dual-clutch transmission and larger front brakes to help keep control of that extra power. As far as we can tell, the 2017 Kia Soul Turbo will be a very similar weight to the normally aspirated model so you will get to benefit from all that extra power rather than having it consumed by hauling extra bulk.

On the outside, the 2017 Kia Soul Turbo will have dual exhausts, 18 inch alloy wheels, a unique front bumper and front grille. How much that grille will differ from the family tiger nose is anyone’s guess but we shall soon see.
On the inside, the turbo model will get slightly different interior trim with dark upholstery with contrasting stitching, a racing-style steering wheel and extra body colour trim accents spread around the cabin.

The 2017 Kia Soul Turbo goes on sale in Europe in October and will be coming to Canada and the U.S. sometime after. Kia have yet to announce the exact date as yet.

If you like the sound of a little extra power in your Soul, visit Kia of Hamilton, 1885 Upper James St, Hamilton ON, L9B 1K8 to learn more about this great new car!
