The Soul is now refreshed, with new projector headlamps, including LED daytime running lights for improved illumination. New and modern LED rear light clusters also enhance the Soul's unique design, while the overall shape of the vehicle was finessed to give Soul a smoother and more streamlined silhouette.
Offering plenty of standard features, the Soul features a chrome-accented grille, clear lens headlamps, body-coloured door handles and side mirrors with integrated turn signals, black body side molding, rear wiper/washer, variable intermittent windshield wipers, front and rear disc brakes and 16-inch alloy rims with an option to upgrade to 18-inch alloy rims.
Inside, the Soul envelopes its passengers with a more high-tech, futuristic cabin featuring a well-equipped blend of technology features at a tremendous overall value. Passengers will find comfort in the roomy cabin that offers 1,020/1,005 mm of headroom (front/rear), shoulder room of 1,403/1,400mm and 1,070/990 mm of legroom. To ensure a comfortable driving position for all drivers, the steering wheel has both tilt and telescopic adjustment.
An uncluttered dashboard with a three-dial supervision instrument cluster with trip computer, white illumination and floating center stack design is the key visual feature. The trip computer provides all the necessary information a driver needs at the touch of a button. Standard USB and auxiliary input jacks can also be found in the center console with full iPod/iPhone® and MP3 controllability via the audio head unit and steering wheel-mounted controls achieved with the included iPod cable. Jazz up your audio experience with multi-colour speaker lights that pulses to the best of the music or add mood lighting to the car.
Built with high-tensile-strength steel to enhance structural strength without adding a lot of weight, the Kia-engineered body achieves high torsional stiffness, benefiting handling, ride quality and refinement. Quieter cruising is delivered by the six-speed transmissions’ higher top gear ratios.
The updated Kia Soul is priced at $107,999 with COE.
