    2020 Soul LX AT - Does it come with SiriusXM ???

    I can't seem to find the answer anywhere, but can some verify if the 2020 Soul LX has SiriusXM radio? I know the higher level trims have it when equipped with the UVO system.

    Welcome on board. No, the lower trim levels make no mention of SiriusXM but the EX and the GT Tubro are the only two that do.

    I think only EX and GT turbo get in-house XM. However you can access it thru Android Auto or ACP with a streaming app. Data charges apply.

    I know, it sucks.

    I just don't understand, all of the Gen 2 models had it... Why go backwards?

    Is there another way to get SiriusXM without having to buy a external SiriusXM radio and antenna, something integrated?

    I don't know why folks don't go to the KIA web site and see/compare the models.

    Oh, I've been there, i just figured maybe they forgot to mention it. Satellite radio is in darn near every vehicle these days... It's like not having a rear view mirror, hard to believe.

    Actually hypecat this has sadly become an industry trend. Most car makers are leaving it out of L, LX, S etc levels. Usually starting in EX and above trims. Even some Touring levels don't get it.

    It's sometimes standard in lower trims on new models, like the Telluride or Stinger.

    Mazda and Honda are especially tight with XM.

    I'm sad to see it too. My base has it and I love it.

    I guess streaming thru AA or ACP will be forced on us. I agree, who wants to stick some ugly XM add on receiver to your beautiful new dashboard, and affix that dumb XM antenna to your windshield.

    They probably have enough data by now that suggests to them they are more likely to get XM subscribers from upper trim level owners.

    To me, XM is too much like local radio for content. I would never waste my money streaming XM when there are so many better options that I like. Primarily, Spotify and a bit of Tune In Radio for a taste of international flavor.

    Sports, The NHL Network is my favorite. I have tons of music on MP3, but even then it gets repetative. Satellite radio is just a choice I'd like to have and I don't think it's too much to ask. Why on Earth does any car come with AM radio? When is the last time anyone has listened to AM radio?
