The four-cylinder 1.6-litre turbopetrol unit produces 150 kW and pushes the Soul to 100 kph in under 8 seconds and on to a top speed of 196 kph. 
In terms of styling, the turbo Soul is differentiated with a redesigned front bumper, new air intakes, dual exhaust system and rides on 18-inch wheels. The updated Soul also benefits from new LED daytime running lights, a new grille design and a revised rear bumper. 

On the inside, the Kia Soul’s infotainment system will feature Apple CarPlay and Android Auto while the turbo Soul will also sport a black and orange interior colour scheme.
