Montreal 2014: Kia Soul, Forte 5-Door and Forte Koup

Kia Canada has revealed pricing and content detail of the all-new 2014 Kia Soul at the Montreal Auto Show. The company has also reunited the Forte family by revealing pricing and content detail of the all-new 2014 Kia Forte 5-Door and Forte Koup.

While the Soul is currently on sale across the country, the two new Forte models will be available before the first quarter of 2014 ends.

2014 Kia Soul
Based on the Track’ster concept, the second-generation Soul delivers improved handling courtesy of a stiffer chassis and revised suspension. From a design standpoint, the large trapezoidal lower air intake is nearly a direct carryover from the concept, and the unique body-coloured "floating" panel inset into the liftgate originated with the Track'ster as well.

The roomier cabin of the 2014 Kia Soul was given a more premium look and feel. Highlights include push-button start, a round shift knob, and steering-wheel mounted controls that are housed in Soul-exclusive circular groupings along the lower spokes. Let's not forget the available 8'' touchscreen multimedia interface and leather seating.
