Kia considering high-performance convertible Soul image

The South Korean based automaker Kia is planning to launch a high performance version of the Soul, which will also hit the market as a convertible in the U.S. and Europe.

The car manufacturer didn’t announce anything official on a possible high-performance version of the Soul, or even on its drop-top, but that doesn’t mean that the company isn’t considering it. According to the guys at autoexpress.co.uk, the high-performance convertible Kia Soul is already in development and the model is expected to be launched in the United States and Europe.

Our source is also saying that the future Soul lineup will also include a production version of the Soul’ster convertible concept, which was revealed back in 2009 at the Detroit Motor Show. Unfortunately, no more details are known about the future of the Kia Soul, but we will keep you updated on the subject.

In other words, Kia has recently announced that the Soul model will receive a facelift in 2013 and the overall design of the new model will be inspired by other vehicles in the lineup, like the Cee’d, Picanto or Rio, and this will translate into modified headlights, a new front grille and other aesthetic updates. The Kia Soul is the second popular model in the United States which is coming from South Korea which makes the facelift quite important.
