Expert Reply:

If your 2021 Kia Soul has a Dual-Clutch Automatic Transmission you'll be able to flat tow it. I highly recommend checking your owner's manual to ensure your specific model can be flat towed as there are some slight variations that can't be and to check what steps are needed to ensure the safety of your vehicle's components. To flat tow your 2021 Kia Soul you'll need a Tow Bar, Tow Bar Wiring Kit, Base Plate, Braking System, and safety cables. I have the following recommendations for you below:

Tow Bar: Roadmaster Falcon All Terrain, Non-Binding Tow Bar - Motorhome Mount - 2" Hitch - 6,000lbs Item # RM-522. The non-binding design allows you to release your vehicle at any time, anywhere on even or unlevel ground. The Falcon All Terrain tow bar can also easily be folded up and stored on the back of your RV when not in use.

Tow Bar Wiring Kit: Roadmaster Universal Hy-Power Diode Wiring Kit Item # RM-154. This wiring kit will splice into your vehicle's wiring to signal using the tail lights instead of having to run magnetic lights to the rear of your vehicle every time you want to tow.

Base Plate: Roadmaster Direct-Connect Base Plate Kit - Removable Arms Item # RM82VR. These direct-connect brackets are virtually invisible, easy to mount and remove, and they eliminate the need for a quick-disconnect crossbar on your tow bar.

Braking System: Brake Buddy Select 3 Portable Supplemental Braking System - Proportional Item # HM39524. This system is a occurring setup but only takes a few minutes and has an included charge line kit that will keep your vehicle's battery charged.

Safety Cables: Curt Single Hook, Coiled Safety Cables with S-Hooks - 42" Long - 5,000lbs - Qty 2 Item # C80151. The coiled design eliminates slack and keeps the cables from dragging on the ground.
