Next generation Kia Soul spotted

Next generation Kia Soul being tested.

A new Kia Soul is coming.

The boxy hatchback which has made a name for itself its unique combination of character and practicality has been through one redesign since its first launching in 2009 and is now offering extra cargo room, a more refined cabin, and an optional 201-hp turbocharged engine. But even in its current form, the Soul is starting to show its age and based on these spy shots,  it looks like the third-generation Soul will be here before long. 

As you can see, the new Soul will stick with its predecessors’ boxy design. That said, it looks a little more SUV-like than before, and it might have even grown a bit. Considering how popular subcompact CUVs are these days, it wouldn’t surprise if Kia used this redesign to fit the Soul more cleanly into that segment. 

It’s difficult to tell based on spy photos, but there’s also a good chance that Kia will finally offer the new Soul with all-wheel drive. If so, that might be part of the reason Kia was testing this prototype on a snowy, frozen lake. 

The heavy camouflage makes it difficult to identify other significant design features, but if you look closely, those fog light housings are pretty large, and even with the headlights mostly covered, it looks like the Soul’s new front end will borrow the Hyundai Kona’s split headlights.
