Kia Soul Hamstar Edition Priced at $20,295

If you enjoyed seeing a couple of hamsters shaking their heads to the sound of music in a Kia Soul a while back, you can start acting like one, as the edition dedicated to the hit commercial of last year is making its way to the dealerships.

Priced at $20,295, the Hamstar Soul comes with a series of unique enhancements, more visual than performance related. Based on the Soul+ trim, the model comes painted in Molten Red and features Hamstar artwork, highlighted by a black star graphic with the signature Hamstar script logo on the hood and off-black matte finish stripes on the vehicle's sides.

The unique exterior look of the model is rounded off by body colored bumpers with a rear bumper applique, power sunroof, fog lights, a rear sport spoiler, black 18-inch alloy wheels, black fender vents with turn signal indicator and a matte black alloy fuel door.

At the interior, the already welcoming Soul receives Hamstar floor mats, black leather trimmed seats with heated front seats, push button start with smart key, automatic climate control and leather wrapped steering wheel and shift knob.

An Audio Upgrade Package (center speaker, subwoofer, 315-watt external amplifier and speaker lights that pulse to the beat of the music) is also available on the Hamstar.

The hamster advertising campaign launched by Kia to support the launch of the Soul proved a huge hit in the US. Since the first appearance of the hamsters, the idea grew into a real phobia, adorned with the hamster's own clothing line.
