Kia Soul – NZ pricing announced

Kia Soul

Kia has announced the New Zealand pricing for its soon-to-be-released ‘urban crossover’ model, the Soul, ahead of the official launch in early April.

The starting price for the much anticipated 1.6-litre Kia Soul will be $29,990. Full details will be announced at the national launch.

That price, says Kia Motors NZ General Manager Todd McDonald, includes the full effects of the lower value of the Kiwi dollar. He expects Soul to be very competitive as other manufacturers are forced to continue raising their prices to reflect the lower dollar. “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 for us, we are starting from a fresh base,” adds Mr McDonald. “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.”

New Zealand is launching the Soul in synch with a number of other markets around the world, including the US, UK, Europe, Canada and Australia.
