  1. Any thoughts on the difference in fog lights?

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 3)
    I'm looking at the new 2020 and there's significant difference in the placement of the fog lights. It can be snowy in my area and the fog lights on my '17 Soul have been great. Those are low and on the outer edges. For 2020, it looks like the halogen lights are low but more to the center...
  2. Does a base Automatic get Equal or Less MPGs than the 6 Spd Manual? Difference? Etc

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    I am shopping for a new 2017 base model. Wondering what the drive experience is like between the two? MPGs matter and Reliability above all else. But is the manual peppier and does it get better or less MPG? Active Eco Help? I tend to like a manual, but the addition of keyless entry is...
  3. Cargo Liner vs Cargo Tray. Difference?

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    Genuine Kia Parts Online | Part Number : B2011-ADU00 vs B2012-ADU00 I have no idea what the difference is. I'm thinking cargo tray (B2012-ADU00) is what I want. Ebay has better picture of it: 2014 2015 Kia Soul Cargo Area Tray Protector Liner New Genuine B2012 ADU00 | eBay
  4. Difference Between 2014 Soul Fog light kits

    Soul Accessories (Gen 1)
    Went today to the Kia Dealer in my town to order the Fog Lights for my 2014 Soul and the parts man told me that there was a change over in the 2014 Souls and not all the fog light kits are the same. He had none in stock but wanted the last 8 of my Vin code to figure out which kit fit my Soul...
  5. Have You Made Any Mods That REALLY Made A Difference?

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    Just wondering if anyone has made any handling or engine mods that really made your Soul a much better car? Over the years I've watched gearheads spend thousands in shocks, springs, swaybars, bushings, computer chips, air filters, plugs, wires, fresh air induction, different wheels, etc. And...

  7. Difference between 2012 and 2013

    Aftermarket modifications (Gen 1)
    Still searching for things for my car (2013 Molten +) and I keep running into sites only supporting up to 2012. Is there any major difference between 2012 and 2013 I need to be made aware of as far as compatibility? Or are they pretty much the same vehicle. For instance, I am looking for a CAI...
  8. What's the difference...

    Soul Accessories (Gen 1)
    ...between a cargo tray and a cargo liner? I'm not exactly the most auto-savvy individual, and Kia's car builder site isn't very helpful. A pic or two would be helpful as well. Also, from what I've been reading the factory cargo cover is a piece of crap. True or false? Is the cargo net really...
  9. Why the cargo space difference between the base & + trim?

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    The Soul has caught my eye as a good replacement for our late lamented Escort wagon. The other finalist is the Elantra Touring, which has the most cargo of any compact hatch. But I'm confused as to why the + trim sheds 4 cu.ft. of cargo space, going from the base spec of 23.7 cu.ft...
  10. Summer and winter tire size difference?

    Soul Tire & Wheel (Gen 1)
    Right now I have some 2012 18" wheels installed. I picked up some winter tires at the dealer today that was included in the purchase. They are 15". When i got home I put the summer and winter side by side and the winter is a bit smaller in diameter. Is that a problem? don't they have to be...
  11. Difference in gauges from 2010 to 2011? - Check this out.

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    I thought that the 2010 and 2011 Soul's shared the same gauges, but I found this when looking through same local dealer ad's. This particular 2011 has different gauges and it doesn't appear to be an overlay. Cars for Sale: 2011 Kia Soul + in West Springfield, MA 01089: Sport Utility Details -...
  12. Difference in ride between 16" and 18" tyres?

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    I've read some reviews that the Soul's suspension is quite harsh on rough roads. I also read somewhere that the Soul 4u (in Canada) with the 18" tyres has a harsh road because of the wheels. Is there a big difference between a Soul's ride with the 16" and 18" tyres? Are there any differences in...
