Kia’s wilfully different high-rise hatchback is back. All-new and on sale in Europe in the irst half of 2019, it has a frownier face, like a bored robot, but there’s no mistaking the silhouette. As before, a pure EV variant will be available with around 200bhp, a blanked-o grille and a built-in DC fast charger. As per the new Ceed, the Soul now features fully independent rear suspension and a 10.25-inch touchscreen media system. Still genre-confused as to whether it’s a hatch, MPV or crossover, the Soul’s singular appeal is undimmed.
