2017 Kia Soul

The Kia Soul is a stylish crossover with a unique character of its own. The Soul has proven its popularity as the second bestselling Kia model in the U.S. It’s also the lead crossover in its segment. Medina, Akron, and Cleveland drivers will not want to miss the refreshing features of the upcoming 2017 Kia Soul when it hits the showrooms in summer of 2016. Though many details have yet to be officially confirmed, Bill Doraty Kia has the latest speculation about this popular model. Read on to see what is in store for the 2017 model year.

Anticipated Style Changes

The Kia Soul is known for its unique look that customers adore, so while there may be a few tweaks to the design, changes are expected to be minor. The 2017 Kia Soul may receive new exterior colors and maybe a special edition model as well. Since preliminary shots of the Soul still covered and hidden by the automaker, details are only estimated at this point and have yet to be confirmed. It seems that there will be reshaped headlights and a revised bumper design, along with refreshed taillights. Though this model year may be relatively unchanged, Kia may be stocking a big surprise for an all-new designed Soul in the future. A new generation won’t be expected until later in the decade.

Possible Powertrain Changes

Experts are unsure if there will be a brand new powertrain, but a 1.6L T-GDI turbo engine seems like a potential addition. Beyond the engine, it’s unlikely that many changes will be seen to the powertrain for gas-powered vehicles. However, Kia has a few tricks up its sleeve for its electric lineup.

Soul EV and New Trailster

The new model year may mean a few new features for the all-electric 2017 Soul EV. It is expected that models will see a boost to extend the driving range. A single charge could be more powerful than expected, thanks to new technological innovations.

Due to intense demand in the past years, this may be the year we see an all-wheel drive version of the Kia Soul. Experts are speculating that this Soul will be called the Trailster, named after the all-wheel drive crossover concept that Kia displayed at recent car shows. We could see the Trailster in 2017.
