KIA Soul third generation, pre-orders for which have already begun, and the first commodity cars will come to buyers in early June, and in his previous incarnation used we have a good demand.
This car is different: falling in love at first sight, and just as quickly to hate with all my heart. This is, however, the fate of all these controversial and extraordinary SUV. However, before the Nissan Juke, MINI Cooper or Тoyota CH-R “the Korean” has a number of advantages: from a more than affordable price to the abundance of options which can not boast of rivals in similar configurations.
However, in my opinion, “soul” differs from “colleagues on the shop floor”, although provocative, but not so pretentious appearance, evaluate which may and flamboyant young audience and a more adult audience, not wanting to accept the fact that she was already over forty – because at this age life is just beginning, isn’t it?
And in any case hardly anyone would argue that this car stands out in the mass of SUVs (and crossovers), becoming selection unusual and, I think, extremely positive people. What, by the way to say, show and sales model that grew over the past five years in seven(!) time – up to 17 000 in 2018. And with the market entry of the third generation they are, I think, will only grow.
Why you, in particular, will understand from our video test drive. Although to our “movie” and have something to add.
The car, in addition to exterior, surprising and “domestic content”. This is one of those rare machines that seems bigger on the inside than the outside. Space for legs, shoulders and heads that passenger that rear riders – more than enough. That, however, is not surprising: the car has become higher, and slightly longer.
And the driver here just expanse. He is assisted by a host of electronic helpers ranging from the retention system in a car in the emergency lane and automatic braking before an obstacle to adaptive cruise control. There is even a function evaluation of the condition of the driver – tired steering the machine will advise you to relax.
However, of all abilities and skills “Korean” portal “Avtosklad” in more detail in the following publications.
And while I will say that the first acquaintance with the new KIA Soul has left more than a good impression, even in the absence of his beloved Russians all-wheel drive (although short overhangs and ground clearance of 180 mm is will allow you to feel confident and when there are difficulties Parking in the winter city, and on easy country roads).
And considering his initial price of 1 029 000 I would even dare to recommend it for purchase. Definitely will not regret it.
