2020 Kia Soul Wireless Charging

Wireless Charging Capability[1]

Have you cut the cord for your cable in your home? Then why are cords for charging your phone still causing clutter in your life? In the 2020 Kia Soul, cords are a thing of the past! For Qi-enabled smartphones, you can easily charge your mobile phone without the hassle of a cord, and with the convenience of the “put down and go” technology that wireless charging in your car allows. No worries- you’ll still have access to multiple charging ports within the Kia Soul, but wireless charging is just another way Kia is trying to broaden your convenience features and connectivity options in 2020.

10.25” HD Touchscreen

Let’s be honest- we’ve all wanted a cool multimedia screen in our cars to impress our passengers and make our lives easier when commuting or road-tripping. Kia heard these requests and the 2020 Kia Soul now boasts a 10.25” HD touchscreen to allow you to control your music and navigate with ease and in style! This touchscreen provides available capabilities such as navigation, split-screen views, and two Bluetooth® device connections[2]. You’ll be impressed with the endless possibilities you have with this HD touchscreen option in the 2020 Kia Soul!

2020 Kia Soul | Apple CarPlay

Apple CarPlay®and Android Auto

We know that it can be tempting to reach for your phone when you’re behind the wheel, but the safety of you, your passengers, and your fellow drivers on the Salt Lake City highway is too important for that! That’s why the 2020 Kia Soul offers Apple CarPlay[3]and Android Auto[4] technology to allow you to stay connected without ever having to touch your smartphone. This technology allows you to connect to and control your phone through controls on your touchscreen display. Access your calendar, navigation, messages, and more all from your HD touchscreen in the 2020 Kia Soul!

2020 Kia Soul | Access App

Remote Lock/Unlock Capability

The Jerry Seiner Kia Salt Lake team understands that sometimes your hands are full and it makes it an incredible challenge to unlock your vehicle in a hurry. Kia heard this feedback and developed an easy way for our customers to lock and unlock their Soul without ever having to use a key! When you have the Kia Access App with UVO Link downloaded onto your smartphone, you can easily lock and unlock your Kia Soul with the swipe of a finger[5]. This also provides you peace of mind on those days when you simply can’t remember whether or not you locked your car outside of your home or business.

2020 Kia Soul Hatchback

Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant

Why should the convenience of voice assistance stop once you leave your home? Kia developed a way for you to have the ease of Amazon Alexa[6] and Google Assistant[7] be your “voice from above” on every commute or road trip across the great state of Utah. Our customers can utilize Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant for voice commands to make climate control, lock and unlock the Kia Soul, and more! Your wish is a simple voice command when you’re behind the wheel of the 2020 Kia Soul!

The 2020 Kia Soul allows you to turn heads all across the Salt Lake City area thanks to its bold, colorful exterior styling and undeniable power under its hood. What’s offered in tech features is saved for the passengers who are lucky enough to ride around Utah in this Kia hatchback. From voice assistants to superior touchscreen capabilities and wireless charging capabilities, the 2020 Kia Soul was designed with your needs and your convenience in mind.
