Kia's new 2014 Soul has been spied testing once more this week, offering a revealing new look at the next-generation hatch.
It is clear from these photos that Kia will stick with the successful look of the current model, adopting an evolutionary approach in the vein of Suzuki's new Swift hatch.
We can however expect a number of Kia's new styling cues to find their way into the new model, including the new headlights featured on the recent Track'ster concept.
Inside, the new Soul will benefit from the same new styling and upgraded materials now found in the Rio.
The spied car shares little else in common with the low-and-wide Track'ster concept, but it is too soon to rule out the potential for a performance-focused three-door version of the new Soul.
If a performance model does come, we can likely expect either the Track'ster's 2.0 litre turbo engine (borrowed from the overseas Optima Turbo and other models), or the Veloster Turbo's 150kW 1.6 turbo.
This five-door version will be the volume-seller for the next Soul, however.
