The Kia Soul Echo
Kia announced launched a new addition to the Soul ‘Originals’ collection, the brand-new Soul ‘Echo’. Joining the existing Soul ‘Originals’ line-up of the ‘Tempest’, ‘Shaker’ and ‘Burner’ the Soul ‘Echo’ is available in either Quartz Black or Clear White paintwork.
The Soul ‘Originals’ line up features character models which have been developed as particular concepts which customers can choose from, based on their personality and lifestyles. The ‘Echo’ model derivatives – available as a 1.6 petrol manual or 1.6 CRDi manual – are designed to be mirror image reflections of each other based on a contemporary monochrome black and white theme. Customers can choose from solid Clear White or chargeable metallic Quartz Black body paintwork which will be charged at £395 inclusive of VAT. Each model has either white or black high-gloss contrasting door mirrors, dual sports stripe body graphics and contrasting 18” coloured alloy wheels which are all fitted as standard.
The Soul ‘Echo’ also features key standard specification such as air conditioning; Bluetooth™; 6 airbags; ESC with ABS, BAS and Traction Control; remote central locking; the upgraded audio system featuring subwoofer, external amp and USB/AUX/iPod connectivity; full black leather upholstery; privacy glass and reversing sensors.
Bluetooth functionality fitted as standard allows a mobile phone to wirelessly connect to the audio system, enabling the driver to safely receive hands-free calls whilst driving. Functionality is provided via buttons mounted on the steering wheel. MP3 music files can also be played from the phone via the vehicle audio system, similar to the CD Audio with MP3 functionality.
All Souls feature excellent safety credentials with a Euro NCAP 5 Star Safety Rating and standard equipment items such as 6 Airbags, Active Front Head Rests, ISOFIX Child Seat Preparation, ABS with EBD, and All-round 3-point Seatbelts.
