Soul vs 2016 Kia Soul Exclaim (!) Trim

The first time you see a Kia Soul, you might think to yourself that the boxy shape and modern features are a bit too much. But once you get behind the wheel, you'll see that the roomy interior offers up to 101 cubic feet of cargo space, and a roofline with space for tall passengers. The base trim offers convenience and technology, and the top trim level, the 2017 Kia Soul Exclaim, comes filled with added luxury without boosting the price to an overwhelming level.

Four doors, cargo space, and high-tech features come on both the 2017 and 2016 Kia Soul Exclaim. The boosted engine power that comes on the Exclaim trim for 2017 gives you a more responsive performance and a more fun-to-drive appeal than the 2016 had to offer. With the new turbocharged engine, you'll see the starting price of the Exclaim trim jump up just a bit, but with the financing options at Riverchase Kia, there's no reason to worry.

If you're looking for a roomy vehicle that offers truly unique style at an affordable price, there's no better place to start than with the 2017 Kia Soul. Visit our inventory to see what we have in stock and to schedule a test drive
