A Closer Look at the Redesigned 2014 Kia Soul

The 2014 new Kia lineup has all of us at Kia of Cleveland getting pretty excited, especially with the recent unveiling of the redesigned Kia Soul at the New York International Auto Show. With plenty of enhancements added to the interior and exterior, this model definitely has a lot of style and innovation to bring to the table.

Because many of us in the greater Cleveland area have come to love what the Soul has to offer, Kia made sure to create a balance between original and new designs. Michale Sprague, executive vice president of marketing and communication for Kia Motors America, explains, "It was important that the all-new Soul remain true to the original iconic design while infusing it with improved driving dynamics and desirable features that add appeal, sophistication and value."1

Beginning with the interior, you'll be able to enjoy the benefits of an  eight-inch touch screen infotainment system complete with the ability to scroll through information similar to the way you would on a smartphone. This allows for easier organization and access to apps. You can also experience more comfort with addition of soft-touch materials and the option of having leather seating.

To increase interior space, Kia added an inch to the wheelbase and a track widened by .6 inches. The hatch was widened as well, to allow for easier loading and storage of cargo. In terms of powertrains, the base model sports a 1.6-liter direct-injection four-cylinder engine that generates 130 horsepower and 118 pound-feet of torque. For extra power, the Plus and Exclaim trim options offer 2.0-liter four-cylinder that cranks out 164 horsepower and 151 pound-feet of torque.

If you are interested in learning more about the jazzed up Kia Soul and all that it has to offer, we encourage you to visit our showroom located at 2492 South Lee Hwy Cleveland, TN 37311 and serving the Chattanooga, Dalton and East Ridge areas. Our lineup has a lot of other great models worth checking out as well including the Kia Sedona minivan or the Rio5 hatchback.
