The 2019 Kia Soul starts at $16,490 MSRP and offers plenty of standard and available features and specs, including an exceptional fuel economy rating. The Kia Soul mpg numbers depend on certain factors, such as the engine and transmission type.

Kia Soul Fuel Economy and Engines

There are three Kia Soul engines available, and the Kia Soul gas mileage varies depending on each engine.

  • The first engine is the standard 1.5L DOHC 16-valve I-4 engine. With this engine and a six-speed manual transmission, your Kia Soul will earn an EPA-estimated 24 mpg city and 30 mpg highway. With the six-speed automatic transmission, you’ll earn 26 mpg city and 31 mpg highway.
  • The 2.0L DOHC 16-valve I-4 engine, paired with a six-speed automatic transmission, gets an EPA-estimated fuel economy of 25 mpg city and 30 mpg highway.
  • The 1.6L turbocharged DOHC 16-valve I-4 engine, paired with the seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, earns an EPA-estimated 26 mpg city and 31 mpg highway.

Kia Soul Engine Specs

Each Kia Soul engine has a 14.2-gallon fuel tank capacity, dual continuously variable valve timing, gasoline direct injection, four-wheel disc with an anti-lock braking system, and electric power steering.
