Kia Soul 2025 price increase of $300, Soulmate Special Edition added to EX trim

The Kia Soul debuted during the Box Car Era, following the Honda Element, Scion xB, and Nissan Cube. Despite the discontinuation of its competitors, the Soul has continued to thrive in the market. While sales have dipped from previous years, Kia has still managed to sell around 60,000 units annually in the U.S. The Soul remains a popular choice among consumers, with a dedicated fan base.

For the 2025 model year, Kia has increased the MSRPs by $100 from the previous year. Additionally, the destination charge has also been raised by $50. The updated prices for each trim level, including the destination charge, are as follows:

  • LX: $21,665
  • S: $24,165
  • GT-Line: $25,265
  • EX: $25,965

One of the highlights for 2025 is the introduction of the Soulmate Special Edition, based on the EX trim. This edition features a two-tone roof, lower body cladding, 18-inch wheels, SynTex and Cloth Seating in an umber color, and Harman Kardon premium audio. The Soulmate Special Edition builds upon the previous year’s Designer Package, offering additional features to enhance the driving experience.

Although the exact price for the Soulmate makeover has not been disclosed, it is expected to be higher than the previous Designer Package, which was priced at $500. The addition of premium audio as an option on the EX trim gives consumers more customization choices for their Soul.

Every Kia Soul is equipped with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine producing 147 horsepower and 132 pound-feet of torque. The CVT is the sole transmission option since Kia discontinued the manual transmission in 2022.


Q: Is the Kia Soul available in different engine options?

A: No, the Kia Soul is only offered with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine.


The Kia Soul continues to be a popular choice in the subcompact segment, offering a unique blend of style, functionality, and value. With the introduction of the Soulmate Special Edition and updates for the 2025 model year, Kia has demonstrated its commitment to providing customers with a compelling driving experience.
