Automotive executives dream about the Kia Soul. It’s the car they all wish for during a career, the one that arrives with minimal expectation and becomes a sensation. You could credit quirky marketing surely you remember the hamsters but cute commercials don’t sell cars. The Soul is simply a fun, funky and useful vehicle, and now with the weight of success, the 2014 Kia Soul is careful not to stray from the formula.

The new Soul sits on a slightly longer, wider chassis that Kia says is 28 percent stiffer than before. It wears the familiar family grille atop a much larger fish-mouth lower airdam with optional foglights set at the edges. It’s a clever effect that gives the Soul a smoother front end and broader shoulders. Available LED accent lights are moved to the top of the headlight housings, but otherwise the new Soul is pretty faithful to the current model’s lines.

Kia’s Soul has been an undeniable success, thanks to clever packaging, unique styling, and a funky-fresh marketing campaign stuffed with, of all things, breakdancing people-sized hamsters. Now, just four years after the Soul was introduced in the U.S., Kia has totally redesigned the five-door hatchback with a larger footprint, a nicer interior, and carefully updated sheetmetal. Believe it or not, Kia thinks the Soul’s design has become iconic, and thus faced a problem familiar to Porsche’s 911 stylists when it came to updating the car’s look without messing with its basic essence.

2014 Kia Soul Release Date :
Meanwhile some rumors told that 2014 Kia Soul release date will be in late this year. Pricing will be announced closer to the Soul’s launch, but we expect it will go for more than the current car’s $15,175 base price. We promise that we will update soon after Kia announces 2014 Kia Soul price.

2014 Kia Soul Price :
The 2014 Kia Soul goes on sale this fall. Pricing has not been announced, but expect it to hold close to the current model’s base price of $14,400 – $15,175. Check back for a full review of the 2014 Soul, including specs, driving impressions and buying advice as it becomes available.

2014 Kia Soul Interior :
The 2014 Kia Soul comes nicely equipped even at the Base level, with standard power accessories, Bluetooth, satellite radio and USB/iPod connectivity. Cruise control, 16-inch alloy wheels and the six-speed automatic transmission are optional. The Plus adds 17-inch alloys, a rearview camera and front and rear center armrests, with optional foglights, sunroof, navigation system, an Infinity audio system, leather, and heated and ventilated front seats. The Exclaim offers most of the same options, but makes 18-inch alloy wheels, xenon headlights, LED running lights, keyless ignition and a chilled glovebox standard.

The company went a little crazier inside in a good way. Cosmetically, the designers employed a circle-heavy theme, utilizing the shape to define the three-zone gauge cluster, the door panel scallops, shifter base, dash top audio speakers, and the steering-wheel audio and trip-computer buttons. It’s not nearly as overwhelming as it sounds, and the round elements mix nicely with slightly rounded rectilinear elements. Kia’s latest UVO infotainment system is available, here paired with a huge, eight-inch central touch screen and a larger, color TFT LCD screen in the gauge cluster which can display turn-by-turn navigation instructions.

2014 Kia Soul Exterior :
With its slight growth spurt, the Soul offers a bit more room inside, with front legroom up more than half an inch and a pinch more rear legroom and overall headroom. The Soul also gains a half-cubic-foot of cargo capacity, but more useful is a 2.4-inch-wider rear hatch opening.

An upgraded interior yields more soft-touch materials on the dash, center console and door panels, with available leather upholstery and piano-black gloss trim pieces. A new 8-inch touchscreen forms the centerpiece of the instrument panel, used to control infotainment functions or the optional navigation and Uvo smartphone-integrated systems. The latter even includes software to control Pandora streaming radio via touchscreen and voice command.

The Soul’s butt benefits from the addition of a “floating” body-color panel that appears to be embedded in the rear hatch glass. It’s a neat feature, and it really works paired with the tall, high-mounted taillights that flank the hatch opening. As a bonus, the opening itself is 2.4 inches wider than before, meaning the added flair doesn’t come at the expense of functionality. The rear bumper has a raised section that mirrors the front intake, as well as a pair of fog light–emulating circular cutouts that house reflectors. As before, the fender openings are outlined by punched-out flares, but these are 0.6-inch wider than before. The wheelbase is stretched by 0.8 inch to 101.2 inches, while the Soul’s height is unchanged at 63.4 inches. The result is an improved stance and a more upscale look, although it’s not nearly as aggressive as its Track’ster inspiration.

2014 Kia Soul Engine :
When it goes on sale this fall, the 2014 Kia Soul will offer three trim levels: Base, Plus and Exclaim. Engine and transmission choices carry over, with the Base getting a direct-injected 1.6-liter four-cylinder making 130 horsepower and 118 pound-feet of torque. Plus and Exclaim models use a 2.0-liter four-cylinder generating 164 hp and 151 lb-ft of torque. Both engines are retuned for improved torque, the 2.0-liter in particular delivering nearly 10 percent more grunt from just 1,500 rpm.

Under the hood, base models bow with a 1.6-liter direct-injection four-cylinder engine with 130 horsepower and 118 pound-feet of torque, while Plus and Exclaim trims get a more potent direct-injection 2.0-liter four-cylinder. That engine develops 164 hp and 151 lb-ft of torque, and both mills can be bolted to either a six-speed manual or automatic depending on trim.
