What engine is in a Kia Soul +?

I don’t understand what the + means when it comes to Kia models, so I’m not sure if that implies a model being better or not. Does the Kia Soul + have a better engine than the regular Kia Soul?

The Kia Soul + has a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine. The base model Kia Soul has a 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine, meaning it is less powerful than the Soul +. The Soul + can achieve 161 horsepower, whereas the base model can only achieve 130 horsepower.
However, most of the differences between the base and + models are found in the interior features list. The Kia Soul + has features like:
  • Automatic temperature control
  • Heated front and rear seats
  • A heated steering wheel
If you’re tempted by interior features offered by the Soul + model, I recommend giving each model a test drive to see which one works best for you. That way, you’ll be able to compare the handling, speed, and features of each model yourself.
