Kia Motors France prices new Soul at 14,990 Euros
Eeach day, I receive a few e-mails from my readers, asking me about the pricing on the new Kia Soul.
Until yesterday, all of them received my reply saying that unfortunately, the pricing was not yet announced, but we are expecting the Soul to be priced fairly and competitively, just like any other Kia car.
Today, after I received an inside official document, I can finally show you a brief preview on Soul pricing for the France market. Depending on country, the prices will most probably slightly differ, but let’s have this document as a general sample.
In France, the price for Kia Soul was set at 14,990 Euros. The starting price buys you the base Kia Soul model equipped with 1,6-liter gasoline engine, coupled with 5-speed manual transmission, but most buyers will probably opt for the 1,6L turbodiesel engine that offers same horsepower but lower fuel consumption.
The base Soul model, equipped with diesel engine, will cost you 2,000 Euros more than it’s gasoline powered counterpart. It’s pricing starts just a tad below 17 grand, at 16,990 Euros and goes up to 19,990 Euros for the “Edition Limitee” Kia Soul.
The pricing list also shows a host of new exterior and interior accessories that are available to customize the Soul. To mention only a few of them:
– “Burner” grille 220 Euros
– “Searcher” grille 220 Euros
– 18-inch “Burner” alloy wheels 1650 Euros
– styling kit 1,600 Euros
The Kia Soul was officially unveiled on the 2nd of October at the Paris Auto Show and is scheduled to go on sale across the Europe in February 2009. In US, it’s sales is expected to commence approximately one to two months later.
