This 2015 Kia Trail’ster concept provides the drive to all four wheels, roll-bar in the roof and on the roof rack for your bike, ski or some other hobby in nature which he may do. Design changes are so great. At first glance, one can notice a big difference in the form of separate white and black roof, which Kia says are inspired by the snow and mud. There are also new LED headlights inspired by the most luxurious model of the company K900, a new grille and special sports bumper, but the detail that certainly attracts the most attention are the beautiful new rims. The situation is similar in the interior and 2015 Kia Trail’ster is certainly the most luxurious Soul has ever produced. Leather seats and aluminum details are just a few features, but the question is why the car was made for off-road driving provides something.
