    Kia launched a revamped version of its compact car Soul on Wednesday.

    The all-new version comes with the tag "Soul Booster" to differentiate it from the first version released six years ago.

    Available in two versions -- a gasoline model and an electric vehicle -- the Soul Booster has a toughened chassis to withstand collisions or crashes in case of accidents.

    It is also equipped with a head-up display, allowing drivers to get driving-related information without taking their eyes off the road. As one of its fun features, the interior lighting changes color depending on the beat of the music being played.

    The EV version, which will be released next month, can run 386 km on a single charge, the longest range of any of Kia's EVs.

    Gasoline models are priced between W19.14 million and W23.46 million. EV models will cost between W46 million and W49 million (US$1=W1,128).
