Kia Reveal Pricing on their Second Generation Soul Cross Over
|   Tuesday, April 15, 2014
Kia has just announced the final pricing on their latest Soul, which will go on sale sporting a base price tag of £12,600. This second generation vehicles shares every base structure with Kia's Cee'd range of hatch backs and hence similarities are bound to crop up. Every variant comes with a range of two engines, while five different trim levels will initially be on offer.

This vehicle is based somewhat on Kia's Track'ster Concept that was revealed at Chicago Show, two years back.
Styling elements on this vehicle are similar to Kia's other latest launches and some of the borrowed features include a trapezoidal air intakes, tiger nose grille up front, fog lamps and lower air inlets. This vehicle is also larger in dimensions than its predecessor, while ride height has been lowered by a considerable margin.

Standard boot space on the Soul is 354 liters that can rise to a maximum of 1,367 liters after removing the rear seats. This is a substantial amount of space considering the average dimensions of this vehicle. Kia has powered their latest Soul, by a direct fuel injected 1.6 liter petrol engine that is capable of displacing 130 BHP along with 119 ft lb of torque.

CO2 emissions are listed at 158 g/km, while official figures claim fuel efficiency as high as 41.5 MPG. A higher power displacing diesel engine is also expected to be available soon, although you need to wait until the official showcasing, in order to catch a glimpse of this power train. While the petrol variants are expected to accelerate from 0 – 60 MPH within 10.6 seconds, the diesel variant should be able to complete the same course in 10.8 seconds, despite generating high power.

Top speeds of 115 MPH for petrol and 112 MPH for diesel engines have been officially recorded and these should be enough to power a vehicle whose sole objective is transporting people in a frugal manner. Kia seems to have set records straight with their new Soul. While their last generation vehicles were a hit across global markets, second generation variants are expected to achieve similar feedback too!

Ride quality on the second generation vehicles is better than the first, while certain enhancements have been made in order to improve dynamics. The base variant features DAB radio, 16 inch alloy rims, power steering, auxiliary power connections, USD and Bluetooth connectivity, air conditioning and keyless entry. Optional 17 inch rims are also available on special request, along with cruise control, armrests and rear parking cameras.

Specially designed audio device and satellite navigation are also available, if you are willing to shell out an extra few thousand quid. Kia is currently planning on taking complete advantage of the booming cross over segment across the globe although their primary focus will be on the Chinese and European car markets. America will feature a variant of the latest Soul, although certain modifications will be made to make the vehicle compatible. Current variants of the Soul will also be available in certain markets.
