(Not a hybrid)
The 2012 Kia Soul that was unveiled at 2011 New York auto show was no ordinary Soul -- not only because it featured the brand's newest iteration of its more powerful, efficient direct-injection engines, but because it was the Korean automaker's seventh special edition Soul.
Due to popular demand, Kia has rolled out another limited edition party-rock-mobile onto showroom floors, and instead of looking like the spooky Ghost Soul or the star-stamped Hamstar edition, the newest Soul resembles the beautiful backdrop of the American Southwest. Inspired by the red rock formations that decorate the region, the Red Rock Special Edition Soul wears unique colors in and out.
Special Canyon exterior paint distinguishes the Red Rock special edition from other models, along with a black front fascia and unique side mirror housings. Inside, two-tone seats wear black leather and brown cloth trim, and the same black-brown color theme continues on the dash and on other appointments. Standard equipment includes automatic climate control and heated front seats, smartkey and Kia has priced the Red Rock Special Edition at $21,350 (including $750 destination fee).
Inspired by the strikingly colorful rock formations found in the great American Southwest and based on the top-line Soul Exclaim (Soul!) trim, the 2012 Kia Red Rock Special Edition sets off its unique Canyon exterior with a high-gloss black finish on the front fascia and mirror housings. Inside, the cabin boasts exclusive brown cloth seat coverings with black leather trim and richens the long list of Soul! standard features with automatic climate control, smartkey and heated front seats. The Soul Exclaim drivetrain elements carry over unchanged, and match a 164-horsepower/2.0-liter four-cylinder engine with a six-speed automatic transmission.
