Saturday, July 2nd 2016 | Kia


Just after launching the second generation of Kia Soul in 2014, the company is now ready to show up the next version of Soul as 2018 year model. Based on the latest spy shots after on-road testing, the forthcoming car will get some performance tweaks and refreshments on its design. Nevertheless, it is completely arduous to notice the detailed changes on the 2018 Kia Soul since during the testing segment, the hood, bumper and rear hatch are wholly covered with black fabric that make it unobvious. Therefore, all information jotted down in this article is only a speculation. Keep on eager to see further updates.

Exterior and Interior

As first seen to the Soul body structure, some changes could be noticed. In the outer part, there will be a higher fog lights and a new grille with a horizontal split in the middle part. While for the headlights, it is very possible that the overall shape will be revised albeit currently still not clear. Unlike the former version, the auto designer is likely to remove the air vents system for the new Soul. Around the car body, the side view mirrors will look similar but taller. Looking at to the back end, the taillights might be still the same. One similar thing could be found to the wheels that retain its standard system for the next 2018 Kia Soul. Talking a bit to the cabin, the car dashboard is probably higher than the current model simply due to the changes on body line. Some features such as a 4.3-inch TFT display, climate control on the central console are expected to be equipped as the previous model. The car seats are most likely upgraded even though not as much. Frankly speaking, refreshments on the interior still remains covert, thus, the only to do is just stay tuned for more updates.

Engine

New Engines for future Soul version is unknown. If we see the former engaged drivetrains, there are two different engines like a 1.6-liter engine with 120 horsepower and 118 pound-feet of torque, and a 2.0-liter four-cylinder with 164 horsepower and 151 pound-feet of torque for higher trim model. These engines are paired with both 6-speed automatic and manual transmission respectively. We definitely all expect that the auto team will make some tweaks on the engine sources and the transmissions to boost the 2018 Kia Soul performance.
