The South Korean based automaker Kia is planning to introduce a coupe version of the new Soul generation.

Kia is planning on introducing a coupe version of the recently unveiled Soul. The announcement hasn’t been made official by the carmaker just yet but it was hinted by the guys at Car and Driver. According to our source, the new Kia Soul Coupe might be inspired by the Track’ster Concept, which was officially brought to the Chicago Auto Show, back in 2012. Rumors are saying that the company is also planning on introducing a high performance version with a 250 HP (186 kW) 2.0 liter four-cylinder engine under its hood.

Sadly this is all we’ve go on this subject for the moment but as a small reminder, the new Kia Soul has been introduced at the 113th edition of the New York Auto Show and it’s 15.24 mm wider than its predecessor, it has a 60.9 mm wider opening for the liftgate and a 20.3 mm longer wheelbase. The model in question is offered in three trim levels, the Base Soul, the Soul Plus and the Soul Exclaim and the cheapest model has a 130 HP (97 kW) and 160 Nm (118 lb-ft) of torque 1.6 liter GDI engine under its hood.
