Seoul - Kia’s new generation Soul crossover will reveal itself to the world next week Wednesday, November 28, at the Los Angeles Auto Show, and this first batch of teaser shots shows that it continues on the same hip-to-be-square, somewhat funky design path as its forebears.
The third-generation is likely more of a heavy reskin than a complete redesign, and it retains many of the current Soul’s signature design cues, such as an upright body, clamshell bonnet, blacked out windscreen pillars and vertical taillamps, but adds more body creases and a blacked C-pillar panel that creates a floating roof effect.
The redesigned front end seems quite interesting too with its slim headlights and 'eyelash' panels.
The teaser shots also give us a glimpse inside, where there’s a new oval facia design that incorporates a modern touchscreen infotainment system.
Kia is not divulging much on the spec front, but promises: “More technology, advanced driver assistance systems, increased cargo room and a new variant - the ruggedly styled X-Line”.
