According to a recent report by Autoblog, Kia might be very serious about delivering to the market different versions of the 2014 Soul sub-compact two-box, building on the major success of the model.
Kia showcased a Soul-based coupe variant in 2012 known as the Kia Track’ster Concept, which could find its way into the production cycle to diversify the Soul lineup. Additionally, there’s even word that a turbo version might make its way into the mix as well. Though, at the moment, the biggest challenge facing Kia Motors America is production capacity, which is maxed out at the current rate. This means adding more models would simply strain Kia’s resources.
Despite these setbacks, Kia is still extremely interested in expanding the Soul’s lineup. As an example, Kia still has their Soul EV, which is expected to debut on US soil at one of the up and coming major automobile expositions.
Kia just announced the prices for the refreshed and updated 2014 Kia Soul, which start at $14,700, not including the $795 destination charge, and can be had in Base, PLus, and Exclaim trims.
