Not such a big
hit in the UK, the current Kia Soul receives a special edition called Urban,
spiced up with some new features and a special price. Kia Soul Urban tries to
attract new customers with one trim level and three engine and gearbox options.

The Soul ‘Urban’
fits in the range between the ‘Connect’ and ‘Connect Plus’ models, offering
features like black high gloss bumpers and rear and side sills, teamed with
chrome inserts. Also added to this trim are electric folding door mirrors with
integrated LED indicators, LED rear combination and high level brake lights
alongside front daytime running lights and privacy glass. Rear parking sensors
come as standard on the ‘Urban’ range.

The Soul ‘Urban’
is available in a choice of one solid and three metallic paint exterior
colours. Clear White (solid), Caribbean Blue, Inferno Red and Quartz Black. All
models ride on the 17 inch alloy wheels seen on the Connect and Connect Plus

On the inside the
Soul ‘Urban’ features black woven seats with yellow trim alongside use of soft
touch materials and black high gloss trim giving a contemporary feel. Also
included is an AM/FM radio with DAB radio, Bluetooth, USB port and auxiliary socket.

Engines start
with two 6-speed manual gearbox versions, one with the 1.6 GDi petrol and the
other Kia’s popular 1.6 CRDi diesel engine. An automatic version of the diesel
version is also available when twinned with Kia’s new 7-speed auto DCT gearbox.

New Kia Soul
‘Urban’ joins the line-up from only £15,500
