First Look: 2010 Kia Ghost Soul
Rounding out the quartet of special editions it promised for the 2010 Soul , Kia has revealed the new Ghost Soul. Like its Ignition, Denim and Shadow Dragon predecessors, the 2010 Kia Ghost Soul will be based on the Soul+ model and production will limited to about 1,100 units, all of which are destined for the U.S. market.
In keeping with its spectral name, the 2010 Kia Ghost Soul is finished in Pale Blue with gray accent stripes. The exterior also boasts a body kit, color-matched rear spoiler, front-fender vents, side-marker repeater lights, a power moonroof, fog lamps and unique 18-inch black-finish alloy wheels with machined accents. Inside, the most impressively appointed of Kia's special-spec Souls comes standard with black leather upholstery and heated front buckets plus the Audio Upgrade Package (a center speaker, subwoofer and external amplifier) with speaker lights that pulse to the beat of the music. Rounding out the cabin enhancements are a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob.
"With the Ghost Soul, we are again offering consumers another unique personality for the Soul while emphasizing its design flexibility," said Michael Sprague, vice president of marketing at Kia Motors America. "It builds upon the success of previous 2010 special edition Souls, which have been well received by consumers for their versatility and unique styling." Pricing for the 2010 Kia Ghost Soul starts at $20,185 with the standard five-sped manual transmission, or $21,185 for one fitted with the optional four-speed automatic.
