We can explore the existing Kia Soul all day, but we simply cannot seriously concur regardless of whether we are seeking into crossover or it’s a hatchback. Either way, the vehicle is rather intriguing, nevertheless also out-of-date. Today’s product has been all-around considering the fact that 2014 and it is refreshed in 2017, so it looks good. Continue to, there are a number of details which can and will be greater when the new-era Kia Soul comes. And it will get there quite shortly without any doubt. We know that many thanks to a set of spy photographs. The prototype has been pictured someplace close to the North Pole, where the carmaker is checking out the new skills of the 2019 Kai Soul.
Ideally, the prototype is making use of all-wheel-travel for the initially time. The AWD will be completely mated to a 7-velocity DCT. While, the carmaker will give 6-speed manual and 6-velocity gearboxes as nicely. A range of transmission options will be paired with a range of engines. The 2019 Soul will start out with a 2.-liter motor, which delivers 147 horsepower. In case you want one thing a lot more potent, there’s likely to be a 1.6-liter turbo with the means to produce 201 horsepower. Some reports (whilst unofficial) claim that the little SUV (we dare to contact it SUV) need to offer a high-efficiency product that will reportedly use a 2.-liter turbo with 275 horsepower. Which is not every little thing of training course. The manufacturer will proceed to provide the Kia Soul EV. Nonetheless, the design has received a new powertrain final year, so we do not assume something new or superior from today’s 111-mile range.
The prototype is absolutely camouflaged, so it’s pretty challenging to figure out what’s heading to be transformed. Nevertheless, judging by the photographs, we can conclude that the new-gen Soul sports both a little bit increased roof or much more intense front conclude. The new crossover will possible characteristic new break up headlights, whilst the taillights surface to be as higher as previously (and vertical of course). The new grille is entirely covered, but we hope it’s going to be borrowed from the new Niro crossover.
The 2019 Kia Soul will reportedly be introduced at the 2018 Los Angeles Auto Present. Nonetheless, there is lots of time right up until then, so remain tuned for updates.
