Cocktail Orange Kia Soul Image Gallery
Kia Motors held a press event in South Korea yesterday to officially present the Soul crossover to domestic consumers.
With the Soul, Kia Motors aims to take the lead in the crossover market at home, as well as abroad.
At the event, the company revealed it plans to sell 18,000 units of the Soul this year.
Considering the Soul will have a buyer friendly pricing and sports some great styling cues, there should be no problems by achieving that.
Korean online and offline media are the first ones that got to see the Soul up close and their first reports, including large amounts of quality images are coming in.
Guys from Careview have just published some great shots of Kia Soul coated in a beautiful Cocktail Orange color and equipped with attractive “Burner” style alloy-wheels.
To see their Kia photos, hit the jump at the end of this post.
The Kia Soul will go on sale in Korea this November, followed by Europe, USA and other regions, where it will take on cars like Scion xD and Nissan Cube.
Sales in Europe will reportedly commence in February 2009, while the introduction into American and Chinese market is planned for March of the same year. [Photosource: Careview and Megaauto]
