The new 2012 Kia Soul is now on sale offering a choice of two regular trim grades badged Soul 1 and Soul 2 and two ‘Soul Originals’ the Hunter and Quantum. The ‘Soul Originals’ are a programme of special versions with unique styling and trim changed at regular intervals.
The Kia Soul is a five door, five seat front wheel drive hatchback, if offers the flexibility of a medium sized MPV or SUV within the footprint of a supermini. The exterior has been given sporty twist with changes to the grilles, lights, front bodywork and wheels. A new bumper with wider lower air intakes gives the Kia Soul a wider stance. The rear of the car has a tusk shaped section in the bumper which visually stretches the width of the car.
Standard specification is generous, with air conditioning, all-round electric windows, remote central locking and six airbags fitted to every model. The 2012 Soul 1 gains Bluetooth with voice control, and sun visors with illuminated mirrors in addition to remote audio controls, electric mirrors, body-coloured door handles and a top-tinted windscreen. The Kia Soul 2 has new 16-inch alloys, unique upholstery and folding mirrors. To top it off, all versions have Kia’s pioneering seven-year, 100,000 miles warranty.
