“Hola” Kia Soul fans and enthusiasts!
I just wanted to say hello to everyone, and report that we have safely arrived in Spain yesterday late at night!
I only slept a couple of four hours, woke up at eight in the morning and went downstairs for a quick breakfast.
The weather here is so nice, it’s sunny with 15 degrees C, so quite a change of climate for us. It was very cold when we left Slovenia and here it’s like spring weather.
Well, you must be interested in the Soul, right!? I have just came back from my first test-drive and I can tell you this car ROCKS and it’s so f****** beautiful!! 🙂
The Soul is so much nicer in real life than at the pics. Several people who have seen it before have already told us that you have to see it in-person to actualle see it’s real beauty and I can confirm that 100%.
It’s boxy design is very attractive and so different from cars you can see on the roads these days!
The one I drove was equipped with 1,6L diesel unit, generating 126hp, tomato red color and 18-inch alloy-wheels. It also had the camera at rear and a display in the mirror inside (very useful option btw!). Front seats were very comfortable and also featured the Soul signatures, you know, those that glow in the dark.
Took some good shots of the Soul, some are published below, but more will come on Saturday or Sunday, when I come back home. Depends on how much engery I will still have left. 🙂
For today, we have another test drive planned. Later in the day there will be a press conference, where some news about future Kia plans are believed to be announced.
A coleague of mine also told me, we will most probably get some news about the cee’d ISG and the future YN mini-MPV, but most of the conference time will be, of course, dedicated to the Soul.
Well, those are just a few first impressions of the Soul and the happening here in Valencia. Everthing’s going as planned and I can’t wait for events (pres conference, another test drive,..) to come later in the day!
Have a nice time and enjoy!
