Kia confirmed the Soul crossover 2009 will make the official unveiling at the Auto Show in Paris. The firm revealed also that the auto will have a choice: both diesel plus gasoline engines.
2 1.6-liter, 16-valve, 4 cylinder engines powering the auto. The gas, diesel powerunits based on the DOHC engines fitted already to the amazing, successful, European-made, Kia ceeâ€™d. Both these engines will be producing the same 126 hp. So, in America there will be an option also of a 2.0-liter engine - 142 hp.
â€œThe Kia Soul is a brand new urban crossover car packed with liberating ideas â€“ a car that will challenge consumers to free their minds. It will offer cavernous passenger space that matches or even outperforms vehicles with much larger exterior dimensions,â€ said Mr Panu Vainamo, the General Manager Marketing at Kia Motors Europe.
Looking ahead for the Show debut in Paris, Gregory Guillaume, the Chief Designer at Kia Motors Europe, commented, â€œThere will be several unique aspects to the experience of sitting in the Soul and first impressions will make a big impact. The tall doors and high-mounted seats make for easy access, while the â€˜laid-backâ€™ dashboard design, triple dial instrument cluster and thick-rimmed steering wheel create an unusual combination of spaciousness for passengers and cosiness for the driver, to generate a very special ambienceâ€.
