Fans of the Kia Soul will remember that a special version named Shaker formed part of the line-up prior to it being facelifted last year.
And now it’s back, equipped with the 126bhp 1.6-litre CRDi engine and priced at £16,690 for a six-speed manual gearbox, or £17,795 with a six-speed automatic transmission.
There’s a choice of Vanilla Shake or Quartz Black metallic paint, and it comes with a distinctive Houndstooth cloth upholstery, together with beige interior trim.
The Soul Shaker is based on the Soul 2 which features air conditioning, front fog lights, power folding door mirrors, a leather steering wheel and gear knob, electric windows all round and Bluetooth mobile phone connectivity.
In addition Shaker versions add 18-inch alloy wheels, cruise control, heated mirrors, privacy glass, an electric sunroof, a colour reversing camera, automatic headlights and an auto-dimming rear view mirror.
The Soul Shaker is available to order now and like all Kias, includes a comprehensive seven year warranty.
