The Kia Soul is getting a few updates for what is largely a carryover model year following the redesign for 2021.

According to Kia Motors America, sales of the Soul are up nearly 20% year-over-year so they’re taking a bit of an “if it ain’t broke” approach this time around. The 2022 Kia Soul has some minor visual enhancements, most notably the new Kia badge on the hood, liftgate, and center wheel caps.
