Kia has announced a round of updates for its Soul crossover, with the highlight a new 201bhp 1.6-litre turbo engine. Also joining the range in the 134bhp 1.6 T-GDI engine from the Cee’d hatchback. Visually, the entire Soul line-up has been updated, too, with new front and rear bumpers and a revised tiger nose grille, plus new foglamps and reflectors.
Inside, new five, seven or eight-inch touchscreen infotainment systems are now available, with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. The Carens MPV has also been updated with a subtle new look and some extra kit. As on the Soul there are new bumpers, foglamps and a reshaped grille. Both cars are on display at this week’s Paris Motor Show before arriving in UK showrooms later this year.
