The 'urban crossover' will be officially launched in New Zealand in early April
The starting price for the 1.6-litre Kia Soul will be $29,990. Full details will be announced at the national launch.
Kia Motors NZ General Manager Todd McDonald says most new cars have yet to see the full effect of the increase in their prices and because the Soul is a totally new vehicle, Kia is starting from a fresh base.
“We’ll be offering a unique and very well equipped vehicle with very high standards of safety, including ESP stability control and 6 airbags for under $30,000,” he says.
The Soul will be launched in other markets around the world at the same time, including the US, UK, Europe, Canada and Australia.
