Kia Soul production version unveiled |

Kia sales grew progressively in the last years and that created a more attractive perspective about the Korean cars. After showing the Soul concept in different shapes and colors, Kia announced that this is the final version. Also they have offered some information about the engine range.

The new model, Soul, will be unveiled at the Paris Motor Show, this October and it can be bought a month after. From the first official photos we can see that Soul still has the features of its concept, but also has some similarities with the newer Skoda models. The car is 4105 mm long, 1785 mm wide and has a high of 1610 mm (this are almost the same dimensions as Nissan Note).

Under the bonnet there will be a 122 hp 1.6 liter engine, a 2.0 liter one and a Diesel, also 1.6 liter – 115bhp (turbocharged). The base 1.6 liter engine will be the same as those from Kia Cee’d. Although it has a SUV look, Soul will be available only in front wheel drive. The concept was created by the designers from Kia Europe, but the series model was made by two creation teams, one from California and one from Coreea.
