The all-new 2014 Kia Soul is almost upon us, which means it’s time for Kia Motors America to release the pricing levels for their cool new car.
When it arrives, the Soul will be available in three different trim levels: Base, Plus and Exclaim.
Each will have a destination charge of $795, but that aside, the Soul Base model pricing will start at $14,700 MSRP.
Since its release in 2009, the Soul has proven to be a major success story for Kia, and the company believes the new release can take that success to all new levels.
The reason they think this way is because the Soul continues to be cool and affordable, but it now also comes with a host of premium features, as well as improved driving dynamics.
The new chassis is stiffer, wider and longer, which adds up to more passenger and cargo space, as well as reduced noise levels.
He went on to say that people are going to be surprised at the level of sophistication found in the all-new Kia Soul.
