Soul Burner, Diva and Searcher show Kia's plans for personalisation
4 March 2008

Kia unveiled three Soul concepts at the Geneva motor show, all based on the high-riding, compact soft-roader that the company will debut at the Paris show later this year.

Kia Soul Burner

Described as the 'bad boy' of Kia's new concepts, the Soul Burner comes in satin black paintwork with dragon tattoos. It also showcases an eccentric two-tone interior - the top half of the cabin is entirely red, while the bottom half is entirely black.

Kia Soul Diva

The Kia Soul Diva is described as a “fashion accessory for a style-conscious young-at-heart woman”. There’s plenty of glitter inside and out, including seats trimmed to look like sofas, a panoramic glass roof and even “pony-hide-style” carpet.

Kia Soul Searcher

Kia believes it has captured the essence of the Far East with the “haven of tranquility” that is the Soul Searcher. Muted colours and textures add to the calm aura, as does the “old, lived-in leather finish” that covers the bonnet, folding roof and tailgate.Kia has also unveiled an Eco_cee'd concept car. Engineers have improved the standard car’s aerodynamics and reduced its weight so that the Eco_cee’d emits just 104g/km of CO2 for the 3-door and 106g/km for the 5-door. Kia claims a fuel economy figure of 60.3mpg.
