First generation AM (2010–2013) / Kia Soul 2009-2013 AM Owner Manual / Driving your vehicle / ISG (Idle stop and go) system

Your vehicle may be equipped with the ISG system, which reduces fuel consumption by automatically shutting down the engine, when the vehicle is at a standstill. (For example : red light, stop sign and traffic jam)

The engine starts automatically as soon as the starting conditions are met.

The ISG system is ON whenever the engine is running.
