New Car: 2009 KIA Soul (U.S)

We've seen the Korean and European Soul, now you see the American Soul. The U.S spec Kia Soul is slated to make its debut at the L.A. motorshow later this month.

The Soul had its world premier earlier this year after the production version was seen at the Paris autoshow in September. The U.S version will come solely with a 2.0 litre petrol engine that produces 142bhp. U.S consumers will have the choice of either a 5 speed manual or 4 speed automatic transmission for the U.S Soul.

Kia intends to produce about 136,000 units per year of the Soul at their Gwangju manufacturing plant in South Korea. 50,000 of those are slated for the U.S market. The L.A autoshow takes place from November 21st to the 30th.
