U.S. Market 2015 Kia Vehicle Line-Up
1. Rio sub-compact car
Available as the 5-door hatchback and the 4-door sedan, the Rio compact car has been one of the longest running Kia models that haven’t been updated yet.
The Rio still looks fresh and a lot more exciting than most of its competitors, so it wouldn’t need any updates.
However, we hear certain rumor that Kia may give the model a subtle facelift for the 2015 model year! The car could also get new engines, including the 1,2L turbo unit.
Stay tuned as we will publish more news and information about the 2015 Kia Rio launch date here at the theKEEA news blog.
2.1 Soul crossover vehicle
Kia Soul boxy crossover has been fully redesigned for the 2014 model year, so the 2015 doesn’t bring any styling or mechanical upgrades.
The model continues to be available in three different trim levels, including the Base, Plus and Exclaim.
The funky crossover remains to be a great package overall and a popular choice among the U.S. new car buyers.

It was first launched in 2014 and remains a strong competitor to Toyota Avalon, Chevrolet Impala, Hyundai Azera and Dodge Charger. (2015 model year specs and trim levels upgrades will be released later this year!)
