KIA is serving its British customers better than others! In a joint project with sportscar maker Lotus, The new KIA Soul, before going on sale in the UK will have to first visit Lotus workshop and become adapted through a special handling package and maybe some not so great visual mods! According to a spokesman “This is the first Kia to have been developed specifically with UK drivers in mind,” “It has secretly been on test here since late 2008, and evaluation has been fed back to the factory in Korea, as well as to research and development teams in Europe. These mean the Soul is more compliant with UK roads, adding refinement to the ride, yet allowing the dampers to do more work under the chassis”. The mini-MPV will hit showrooms in Britain in March.
