Spyshots: 2014 Kia Soul

Say what you will about the boxy shape, but in North America, Kia has seen some reasonable success with the Soul. But despite numerous special editions and cosmetics tweaks, the model launched in 2009 is beginning to show its age.

Since the vehicle is now three years old, the company has begun testing the refresh, which will most likely arrive with the 2014 model year next spring.

The challenges faced by the designers are quite substantial, as the Kia brand has excellent new styling, but the company needs to keep the Soul recognizable.

The 2014 Soul is keeping its overall proportions the same, but as you can see, everything has a slightly different shape. We should be seeing refreshed headlights with LED accents, a revised grille and lower bumper.

Round the back, Kia will introduce new graphics for the lights and most likely a redesigned lower bumper, judging by the placing of the reflectors.

We should not see any new engines for the Kia Soul, so they will most likely announce slight improvements in efficiency to keep us interested.
