New Kia Soul debuts at the New York Auto Show

Kia has unveiled the new Soul at the New York Auto Show inspired by the 2012 Track’ster concept car, keeping the already familiar boxy design.

New Soul rides on a completely new chassis that is stiffer, longer and wider, allowing for more passenger and luggage room while reducing levels of noise, vibration and harshness.

The wheelbase now is 2,570mm long (up 20mm), overall width is 1,800mm (up by 15mm) and the overall height remains at 1,610mm. Boot space is up to 685 litres – up by 14 litres.

The US spec model will be offered with a 128bhp 1.6-litre all-aluminium DOHC four-cylinder engine and a more powerful 162bhp 2.0-litre Nu power plant.

The UK spec model is likely to get a 126bhp diesel as well in addition to the petrol units.

UK sales are expected to start in early 2014.
