NEW FOR 2014:
– All-new model.

While the styling changes are subtle, they are many and the 2014 Kia Soul is built on an all-new platform that improves its ride, handling and overall refinement. On the inside, its cabin comes with improved noise insulation, upgraded infotainment technology and there’s even an optional navigation system … for those lost Souls. An all-electric Soul EV is also expected later in 2014.

The Soul comes with a 1.6-litre or a 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine. A six-speed manual transmission is standard with the 1.6-litre and a six-speed automatic is optional and standard with the 2.0-litre. The 2014 Soul also comes in three trim levels LX, EX and SX.

Standard equipment with the LX trim includes; 16-inch steel wheels; fog lights; heated side-mirrors; body-colour door handles; front and rear splash guards; cloth seats; driver’s seat height adjustment; 60/40 split-folding rear seat; tilt and telescopic steering wheel with audio controls; power locks; audio and MP3 stereo; USB and auxiliary inputs; Bluetooth connectivity; active front head restraints; and hill assist control. Air conditioning, an automatic transmission and an active Eco system are options.

The EX trim adds 17-inch alloy wheels; air conditioning; roof rails; mirrors with integrated turn signals; heated front seats; keyless entry; and cruise control.

The SX adds 18-inch alloy wheel; leather upholstery; Smart Key with pushbutton start; climate control with air ionizer; heated steering wheel; cooling glovebox; a rear-view camera; piano black interior accents and chrome door handles.
