You can’t get ’em here dept.

Just took delivery of the latest issue of the British magazine Car. One of the staffers will be driving a new Kia Soul for a bit, and updating readers each month on how it’s going. The thing that caught my eye in the article was the Soul’s diesel engine, which of course isn’t available here in the U.S. It got me wondering what other differences there are between the Euro Soul and our North American version.
Well, where we’ve got four trim levels to choose from (Soul, +, !, and sport) the Brits have five: 1, 2, Samba, Shaker, and Burner. I’d say we may have a leg up on the warranty though, as across the pond Kia’s warranty is five years and unlimited mileage, while U.S. buyers are covered for 10 years/100,000 miles.
