2020 Kia Soul Can’t Wait Until The LA Auto Show To Show Its New Face

Just yesterday we brought you the first teaser shot for the 2020 Kia Soul. Now another image has surfaced, this time showing (part of) its fresh face.

The new image depicts the thin vertical headlights, front fender, hood, side mirrors, and part of the greenhouse – complete with a two-tone paintjob. From what we can see so far, the new Soul looks poised to double down on the current model’s signature quirky style and modernize it for the years to come.

The Soul is the last carryover from an otherwise bygone era of oddball rolling boxes from the Far East that once included such oddities as the Honda Element, Scion xB, and Nissan Cube. Only where those have all long since disappeared from the marketplace, Kia seems to be making a go of it.

The Korean automaker first introduced the Soul back in 2008 and brought it to the US a couple of years later, substantially updating it in 2013. Now another five years later, it’s preparing to roll out the next iteration.

The tall-roofed crossover/hatchback form factor not withstanding, the 2020 Kia Soul is expected to pack within its fresh sheetmetal new equipment, a more ergonomic and tech-laden interior, and a variety of powertrain options – including naturally aspirated, turbocharged, and electric motivation.

We’re looking forward to seeing the finished product revealed later this month at the LA Auto Show. But given the pace at which these teasers have been reaching our desks, we don’t doubt there’ll be more to come between now and then.
