Well, it’s now official. Kia has announced that it will retain the name of the AM concept cars – Soul – shown in Geneva earlier this year and in Detroit in early 2006 for the production model, which will be unveiled at the Paris Motor Show the first week of October.

Below are the first official images of the production model.

    Congratulations, what a GREAT move….the logo could use some more thought, so does the Website, but the car itself and the concept will go a long way…..Very Impressive!

    WOW!!! beautiful!
    This the best car from Kia yet. I run out of words when I see the SOUL and that has definately happened today, seeing it without black covers. And great decision keeping the name SOUL for production and the SOUL badge is also neat with those over-lapping letters.
    I hope UAE will get the good options. If a 2.0L engine will be available, it should, no doubt, be offered here.
    BTW, will the grille be the same as on the trio concepts; H-shaped?

    Yours sincerly,

    Great!!! Cannot wait to test one in Madrid, Spain, my city, and without the shadow of a doubt, buy one (the ecofriendly version, of course). Bravo, Kia, great job.

  • It looks so cool, except of those door-handels that look like those found on Zastava 101 from 1975…Well, I gues that’s not such a problem, if overall vehicle is quality built and great to drive!

    Really a great looking little car!

    That’s kinda great, but I really really hope nothing like great equipment cuts will happen as recently with cee’d trim levels. What was my disapointment
    to be informed by our regional dealer that my car (cee’d 1.6 CRDi LX trim level) will miss hight adjustable driver’ seat?!?! and there was absolutely not any possibility to order. Such a shame! Even the cheapest junk has hight adjust nowadays. I frankly hope that some KIA people responsible for marketing or whatever will pay close attention to that omission. 21st century we are after all.
