Take a look at the Red Rock Soul at Kia Country, 1515 N. Main St., Manteca.

Featured in a rich metallic Canyon exterior color, this Special Edition model has many of the same features of the 2012 Soul.

For starters, there’s the 2.0-liter, DOHC continuous-variable valve timing, four-cylinder engine that’s capable of producing 164 horsepower for better gas mileage.

Speaking of which, the Red Rock Soul gets an estimated 26 miles per gallon city, and 34 mpg highway. Mileage may vary based on one’s driving habits.

The Soul also comes equipped with voice-activated UVO “infotainment” system with a seven-inch screen, an Infinity sound system with AM/FM/CD/MP3, and eight speakers.

Besides color – the Canyon was inspired by Sedona’s red rocks – this Special Edition Soul has the extras. Included are LED on both the front blinkers and tail lights.

Much of the stylish Canyon color and flat black match the brown seats, in part, accentuating the cockpit of the Soul.

Safety features include: dual front advance airbags coupled with front seat-mounted airbags, the three-point seatbelts for all seating positions, and the front active head rest.
