After a great Pan-European test drive of new KIA Soul, held in Sicily, Italy, a brand new car is in Ukraine. Sales of new Kia Soul have started.
Test- drive of new Kia Soul recently was held in Sicily. Almost 300 journalists all over Europe arrived there in order to test this car. Ukrainian Media representatives were among them.
New KIA Soul was first presented in 2013 at Frankfurt Motor Show. New generation of compact crossover was created by KIA design team led by Peter Schreyer, vice president and a chief designer of KIA Motors Corporation.
Second generation of KIA Soul is a brand new model, which is based on Kia Track'ster 2012 concept. Its development was a serious challenge for designers, as it was of vital importance to remain a vivid personality of the car, which has achieved such a great success throughout the world, and thus make the design fresher.
Designers have achieved their goal: new KIA Soul has already been noted in the prestigious international competitions of industrial design “IF Product Design Award 2014" and “Red Dot design award”.
Compared with the previous version, the new model is 20 mm longer, 15 mm wider and 10 mm lower. New sizes and extended wheelbase allowed increasing the practicality of the car by providing more room for passengers and luggage.
High quality materials are used inside the new KIA Soul. Depending on the configuration, the model is equipped with a ventilated driver and front passenger seats, as well as heated both front and rear seats, navigation system, Park Assistance, Infiniti sound system, keyless access and start/stop button, cruise control and other premium options.
Each new Soul is equipped with Kia FlexSteer system. It provides three different modes of control according to your driving style - "Normal", "Comfort " and "Sport".
KIA engineers designed KIA Soul structure so that the latest generation meets the highest safety standards in its class. New Soul has awarded a five star safety rating by NHTSA (National Traffic Safety Administration U.S. vehicles).
Even in a base version Soul can be equipped with such technologies as ESC (electronic stability control system), HAC (hill assist control) and VSM (vehicle stability control system).
