Kia Soul Shaker Special Edition AnnouncedSaturday, January 26, 2013 7:52 by Arman Barari
‘Shaker’ is a new addition to Kia Soul Originals collection which offers funky styling details and more standard equipment over the standard spec models. It is a good car, but it’s hard to get over the fact that it’s called the Soul Shaker!
This special edition Soul features Vanilla Shake coloured bodywork, but you can also order it Quartz Black metallic. You18-inch wheels as standard, plus premium cloth upholstery in a new unique ‘Houndstooth’ design.
In terms of features and equipment, the car comes with iPod and Bluetooth connectivity, cruise control (diesel model only) and air conditioning, as well as LED daytime running lights, LED rear combination lamps and high mounted brake lights, leather-trimmed steering and gear knob, electric tilt-and-slide sunroof, and an automatically-dimming rear view mirror with an integrated colour reversing camera.
The car is available with two engines, including the 1.6 CRDi 126bhp turbo-diesel (£15,295), and a 1.6 GDi petrol with 138bhp (£16,690 manual, £17,795 automatic).
