Starting this month Kia Motors is selling a new special edition version of the Soul in the British market. It is called Kia Soul Urban and according to the manufacturer it comes with enhanced styling and equipment level which means it offers greater value.

As such, Kia Soul Urban comes in only one trim level and two engines, including a 1.6 GDi petrol (130 hp) and a 1.6 CRDi diesel (134 hp). The petrol unit comes with a six-speed manual gearbox, but a 7-speed auto DCT gearbox is available for the diesel.

Slotting neatly in the middle of the range as a semi-premium model, Kia Soul Urban boasts black high gloss bumpers and rear and side sills and chrome inserts as part of its ‘SUV Pack’ for a more robust look, and features electric folding door mirrors with integrated LED indicators, LED rear combination and high level brake lights alongside front daytime running lights and privacy glass.

In terms of equipment, the Urban comes with 17” alloy wheels, black woven seats with yellow trim, soft touch material, black high gloss trim, DAB radio, Bluetooth and USB, and three metallic paint exterior colors of Clear White (solid), Caribbean Blue, Inferno Red and Quartz Black.
