Kia Soul-based Trail’ster e-AWD concept gets hard-edge style

ADVENTUROUS in design and look.

That's the new concept car from Kia, called the Trail'ster e-AWD which was revealed at the 2015 Chicago Auto Show.

Based on the brand's Soul passenger vehicle, the turbocharged Trail'ster has a roll-top canvas roof and armoured aluminium skid plates. Kia says it's designed for those looking to escape their urban environs in search of higher-elevation playgrounds where snow, mud, rivers and trails abound.

"The Trail'ster concept is a near-future look at how the production Kia Soul would logically evolve into an all-wheel drive capable version that's built to escape the city streets and roam into the mountain wilderness," said Tom Kearns, Kia Design Center of America chief designer.
