  • Outside Mirrors : Every trim of the 2021 Soul boasts power-adjustable outside mirrors, but how these mirrors are finished depends on which edition you select. The LX base trim features standard black mirrors, while the S and EX trims gain body-colored mirrors. The GT-Line sports an aggressive look with its high-gloss black side mirrors.
  • Appearance Package: Of the four trims compared here, only the GT-Line gets a unique appearance package. The GT-Line's distinct exterior is highlighted by red, silver and high-gloss black accent trim, as well as 18-inch alloy wheels.
