2020 Kia Soul GT-Line Turbo Fuel Economy & Driving Range

For the last 50 years, July 20 has been holding a special place in our hearts because it is the anniversary of man landing on the moon. Since then, space exploration has come a long way and our fascination and celebration of it has really grown in the last few years (haven’t you noticed that galaxy print is everywhere?). In addition to the moon and stars, we have a special fascination with the planets in our solar system – and we are amazed how each planet has its own personality and how big some of them are compared to our home planet Earth.

Today, we thought that we would have some fun and showcase the fuel economy and driving range of the 2020 Kia Soul GT-Line Turbo by finding out how much fuel it would need to drive around each planet!
