The 2011 Kia Soul has just been tested by the Australiasian New Car Assessment Program (ANCAP) in its strident crash testing procedures and the new model has been awarded a five-star safety rating.
For a car packed full of features, the new model also gets a trip computer, metallic finish on the instrument panel and a new ergonomic door handle design on top of the just-awarded five star safety rating, it's now a very comprehensive package.
Tony Barlow, Chief Operating Officer of Kia Motors Australia, recently said about the results,
"The acknowledgement by ANCAP that Soul is now one of the safest cars in Australia is a worthy recognition of Kia’s commitment to safety. Kia has made a commitment to deliver five-star safety across the range and this is yet another step towards that goal."
Kia Soul model year 2011 prices start at 20,990 for a manual and $22,990 for an automatic.
