Want to see the 2010 Kia Soul before its September launch at the 2008 Paris motor show? Make your way to this summer’s 2008 Vans Warped Tour.
As an official sponsor of the skateboard-‘n’-music festival, Kia’s hawking its wares at most stops along the nationwide tour, including what seems to be a production-intent Soul hatchback.
We say “seems to be”, for in the interest of retaining some suspense for the Paris show, Kia’s lightly disguised the Soul for its appearances at the Tour. Painted in silver, the Soul slated for display sports checkerboard-print tarps over its front and rear fascias, obscuring just enough detail to raise curiousity. Likewise, the windows to the Soul’s interior have been deep-tinted to the point of obscuring any glimpse of what’s inside.
Although the Soul’s set to go on sale in the U.S. in early 2009, the Warped Tour begins June 20th in Pomona, California. If you’re interested in seeing the Soul, check out http://www.warpedtour.com/warpedtour/concerts.asp for a concert venue near you.
