It may not look at it first, but this Kia Soulster could be a car for the times at this month's Detroit motor show. The convertible/pick up combo may look like the result of a Kia Soul, Suzuki Samurai and Tonka dumper truck based recipe but as America ditches its traditionally large 4x4s and utility vehicles, a mini pick up seems right for Motor City.
Whether the Soulster makes production remains to be seen - it's concept car fantasy at the minute - but the standard Soul was in the same position a couple of years ago, and is now on the verge of sales across the world. It's being touted as a Mini rival, and with a unique twist on the small car format such as this, it could have the edge for some people.
