Report from Paris Auto Show: Soul vs. Toyota Urban crossover
The 2008 Paris Auto show has opened it’s doors today. First to get up close to all exciting concept and production cars will be the press reporters and worldwide media.
Starting today, automotive blogs will fill up their websites with numerous auto show reports and lots of pics revealing dozens of vehicles that will be presented to the public for the first time.
Some of my friends working for Kia Motors are already at the scene. A few minutes ago I received and email with nice regards (no pics though) from Paris and some great news.
At the Kia stand in Paris there is a full range of Souls presented, each with a different style.
Those who have seen the car up close state it looks absolutely fantastic. It’s design is great and built quality is very good too.
One of the obvious finding from the fist few hours of the Soul is that the media like it a lot! The Soul was very well accepted by all of the journalists and their response so far was very encouraging.
Among many great cars debuting at the show, the Soul is one of the most viewed and desired vehicles in Paris.
One thing was pointed out as well, and that is a comparison to it’s main compeitor at the European crossover market.
Guys at the show compared the Soul with Toyota Urban crossover (see the images attached below), which will also make it’s European debut in Paris and they state that the Soul looks and feels much better compared to it’s rival from Toyota.
And that’s something that is really nice to hear!
We will soon have more news from the auto show. Remember, Kia Soul debuts today, at 16.45 hrs! That means in less than two hours folks!!
