At Danbury Kia, the Kia Soul has always generated a lot of buzz, with each new iteration. While customers usually know it for its impressive fuel economy and drivability, our team is familiar with the vehicle's surprising versatility. The Soul is a great vehicle for commuters and the like, but it can also serve as a workhorse if you need such a car. That's why we wanted to talk about the vehicle's various performance stats and its towing capacity in particular.

Towing Capacity

The Kia Soul boasts a braked towing capacity of up to 2,500 pounds, meaning its more than equipped to tow around a large amount of equipment. The vehicle's small size also ensures that turning and handling the Soul will be much easier for drivers, especially those uncomfortable managing larger vehicles.

This makes the Soul an option for musicians who need to haul amplifiers and musical instruments, artists who need to move large pieces and equipment, and even laborers who rely on transporting their own tools for their work. Basically, the drivability and small size combined with a towing capacity of this level mean the Soul is ideal for anyone who relies on consistent vehicle performance.

General Performance

This hatchback is designed to perform, with a standard 2.0-liter engine that offers up to 147 horsepower. With its tiny frame, you'll be able to zip from point A to point B and have fun doing so, utilizing the vehicle's standard six-speed manual transmission.

The Soul's drivability is further strengthened by its 132 pound-feet of torque, which tremendously helps its maneuverability. An intelligent variable transmission also works to keep the Soul stable and you in control. Whether you're towing 200 pounds or 2000 pounds, there's no messing up this vehicle's stability.
