The vanilla-cream Soul has 18-inch alloy wheels, privacy glass and an LCD display rear-view mirror for reverse parking assistance. Kia will replace the car after six months with a newer model.

“The car is as highly visible as we are," said PCSO Charlotte Whittaker. "We were delighted to have been given a car, but to have one that turns heads as swiftly as this one does only helps us become more visible to the public.”
