Kia has been busy building a cool and compact SUV – the Kia Soul. Our US-based photographers took these spy photos of the production model undergoing testing.
Initially unveiled at the 2006 Detroit Auto Show, Kia has already confirmed production plans for the US market.
Under the current circumstances an Australian release seems unlikely for the time being, nonetheless CarAdvice has asked Kia Australia for comment.
The Korean company has built the Soul to appeal to a younger market. With a pimped out stereo and aggressive styling, the Soul is definitely one Kia we we are keen to test.
The car will be powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder petrol engine coupled to a 5-speed automatic transmission with manual shift capability. It will see American daylight late next year.
