The facelifted Kia Soul doesn’t have any drastic exterior changes.

On the outside, the facelifted Kia Soul features tweaked headlamps, radiator grille, bumpers and taillights. The Soul hasn’t remarkably changed on the outside with the facelift.


Save for new colour option(s), there are no changes to the interior of the crossover.
