Small diesels arent known for their wide rev bands. So sticking a 4 speed auto on it doesnt sound at all promising. And then charging 18k for it sugests the Koreans are getting a bit too confident already.

The name suggests what you might be doing whilst lying in bed at night with one of these parked in the driveway.

Where has all Japanese design went to?

Appears to have been an unannounced change of policy at Hyundai/Kia - the latter's price are now dearer than the former - see also ix35 v Sportage

Does this car mean that Kia are going to give all their Soul limited editions names that suggest puns or plays on word? If this is the case how about Survivor, Brother.

At least you'd be able to find it in the car park, otherwise it'd be a Lost Soul.

The Lost Soul is the Sat. Nav. edition - the voice setting is stuck in Korean!

i am still waiting for the long talked about collaboration with Honda, that will give us the Kia Type R Soul.
