Kia Soul Gas Mileage

Depending on which trim level you choose, there are two different Kia Soul engines available. They both have solid fuel economy, but there are slight differences:

  • 2.0L DOHC 16-valve I-4: Most Kia Soul models come with this engine, which is paired with a 6-speed manual as standard on the LX. Other models with this engine get an IVT. The LX has an EPA-estimated 29 mpg city/35 mpg highway, while the S, GT-Line, and X-Line reach an EPA-estimated 28 mpg city/33 mpg highway.
  • 1.6L Turbocharged DOHC 16-valve I-4: This turbocharged engine is standard on the Turbo achieves an EPA-estimated 27 mpg/city and 32 mpg/highway with the seven-speed dual-clutch transmission.

The Turbo Kia Soul fuel economy is slightly less than preceding than the fuel economy specs of the preceding trims, it compensates with extra power that might be preferable for some Cottage Grove drivers. Keep reading for more about the Kia Soul engines.
