Kia Soul undergoes extreme weather testing

Kia Soul undergoes extreme weather testing

Kia Soul owners have been after an AWD model for some time now, and they might just get it with the 2019 version, snapped here for the first time while undergoing extreme weather tests on a frozen lake somewhere in Lapland. 

The new platform that the Soul will ride on is originally made for FWD, but it is also made with an option for AWD, which Kia should take advantage of given the demand for that option on the Soul.

The Kia Soul EV has been around for a little while now, and while the all-electric model has proven to be very reliable, it does fall a little short on driving range. Kia is therefore planning to change all that with major enhancements to their electric drivetrain technology, all of which adds up to more driving range on a single charge.

We are obviously still too far away from the unveiling to have an official release date for the 2019 Soul, but we can hazard a few guesses as to when we will see it first. The most likely places for an unveiling would be the 2018 Los Angeles Motor Show or the 2019 North American Motor Show in Detroit next January. The new generation Soul crossover vehicle should hit dealerships shortly after the official unveiling.

If Kia should decide on a 2019 Soul AWD model, then the rumours of a more rugged design would certainly seem to fit.
