The Enhanced 2017 Kia Soul at 2016 Paris Motor Show

The facelifted Kia Soul is here and it comes with a new petrol engine. Powered by the 1.6-liter T-GDI, which comes straight from the Cee’d GT and Pro_Cee’d GT, it becomes the most powerful Soul ever engineered by the South Korean brand with 201 HP that are directed to the front wheels through a new 7-speed dual-clutch transmission. From 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h), it needs 7.5 seconds and it can go up to 122 mph (196 km/h). Stopping power comes from larger brakes and drivers can choose between Normal, Eco, and Sport modes.
