The totally transformed 2014 Kia Soul
already takes several styling cues from the Track'ster concept that
debuted at the 2012 Chicago auto show, but a new Red Zone special
edition Soul makes the two look even more alike.
Based off the Kia
Soul Plus, the Red Zone wears white exterior paint that's offset by red
accents on the Tiger nose grille, front and rear fascias, and side
skirts, just like the Track'ster.
While the Track'ster's red roof doesn't transfer onto the Red Zone, its
black roof still creates just enough contrast. A new body kit also
makes the Soul look more aggressive than the garden-variety Soul, as do
custom 18-inch wheels. Inside, the Red Zone's black upholstery gets a
pop of color with red stitching, as do the black floormats with red
piping. Elements such as the shift knob ring, air vent rings, speakers,
and console tray have been dipped in red paint to keep the theme going.
Sport pedals top off the look.
The treatment ends there, as the Red Zone is
powered by the Soul Plus and Exclaim's 2.0-liter I-4 that makes 164 hp
and 151 lb-ft of torque. While the Red Zone is the first special edition
to be based off the 2014 Soul, we doubt it'll be the last. The last-gen
Soul was offered in several limited editions, including the Red Rock, and of course, the Hamstar edition. Limited to just 2000 units, the Red Zone Soul will begin arriving in showrooms at the beginning of 2014.
