Kia SOUL will make its US official debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show. But until then, the US spec were revealed, thanks to Kia World.
The US model will only be offered with a 2,0L in-line four engine. Developing 142 hp, the engine should provide plenty of punch, while still delivering a respectable gas mileage. When going on sale in US, the Soul will be available with either a five-speed manual or four-speed automatic transmissions.
Kia plans to sell 50,000 units in USA (from a total of 136,000). Sales will begin in April 2009.
