Kia Soul Magma to explode onto Paris

Kia will use the upcoming Paris Auto Show to introduce several new products including the Soul Magma concept. So far, the automaker has released a single image of the car, which was penned by Kia France and could be sold over there in very limited numbers.


Following its world debut in Korea, the all-new Kia Sorento will have its European premiere in Paris. The redesigned Kia Rio and Venga as well as the Optima T-Hybrid concept will also be on display.

About that last one: Hinting at a future production model, it features a 1.7L turbodiesel engine mated to a small electric motor and a 48V lead-carbon battery pack. Kia estimates power to be up 15%-20% over the current 1.7L diesel unit.
