A new generation of the Kia Soul is brewing, and judging by our spy shots
the funky look we've grown accustomed to with past versions of the Kia
compact crossover SUV will be retained.
The boxy shape was first shown in 2006 on a Soul concept car and today is
instantly recognisable as Kia's smallest SUV. Well, smallest in the United
States. In other markets there is the slightly smaller Kia Stonic.
Beyond the boxy shape, the new Soul also maintains the vertical taillights
of its predesscors. The front will be different, however. It looks like the
designers have gone with a split headlight design where the main projectors
and daytime running lights are separate units ...
For electric car fans, Kia will have a new Soul EV in the range. The current
Soul EV just saw its range increase from 93 miles to 111 for 2018. This
means we might not see much of an improvement for the new Soul EV initially,
though perhaps later in the life cycle. Kia just last month hinted at a Niro
EV with 238 miles of range.
