The car that started Kia’s modern day transformation will itself be re-invented, with the Korean automaker planning to debut the second-generation of its distinctive Soul model at the NY Auto Show this week.

Spy photos have revealed little in the way of what Kia has in store for the design, though it’s sure to adapt cues from the new Forte sedan, while keeping its unique boxy shape. A lower stance and wider body are also likely.

Look for a base 1.6-liter 4-cylinder with 138 hp, with a new direct injection 2.0-liter making as much as 173 hp.
