The images of the new Soul show a number of styling details, such as the car's rear end shape and overall side-on profile. One image also shows part of the car's dashboard, demonstrating a larger infotainment screen with additional features.
Kia claims the Soul will bring "something for everyone, offering more technology, a range of advanced driver assistance systems, and increased cargo room". There will also be a more rugged X-Line variant alongside existing trim levels, although it's not clear yet if the UK will benefit from this option.
The third-generation Soul is due to arrive in the UK in EV-only form in the second half of 2019, with a US market launch earlier in the year. While the American market will receive a couple of four-cylinder petrol engine options, only an electric model is deemed necessary for the UK, because the similarly sized Stonic will be the conventional volume seller.
