2012 Kia Soul at Gary Lang Kia
The hot-hatchback segment has received a jolt: the boldly styled, effective Kia Soul is on the market, and the 2012 model adds a dose of fun-to-drive performance to the practical hatchback idea. Another bonus in the 2012 Kia Soul, currently available at Gary Lang Kia in McHenry, is that it has award-winning safety, good interior space, competitive fuel economy, and great distinctive styling cues. The 2012 Soul has been upgraded with a few great additions in the realm of both engine power and economy, as well as new steering and transmissions, updated bodywork, and on top of all of this, new technology developments.
Kia Soul Details
The 2012 Kia Soul's engine remains the same as the 2011, bringing a four-cylinder motor capable of pulling 123 pound-feet of torque and 138 horsepower out of a relatively small 1.6 liters. The estimated fuel economy from this powerful engine is 27 mpg in city driving, and 35 mpg on the highway, regardless of whether you get the manual six-speed transmission or the optional automatic. This gets even better if you have the Eco package, with 29 mpg city and 36 mpg highway. Finally, there's a sportier option available in the Soul + and ! models, which have a 2.0-liter four-cylinder that cranks out an energetic 164 horsepower and 123 pound-feet of torque.
Some of the other 2012 improvements we at Gary Lang Kia are proud to make available to our customers have to do with styling and trim. This year's model has new design cues both inside and out that strike a balance between form and function, which you can learn more about on our inventory page.
