A wedgy, funky little Kia concept called the Soul'ster was unveiled today at the 2009 Detroit Auto Show.

The new concept is based on the new 2010 Kia Soul hatchback, which goes on sale later in the year, and which we'll be driving shortly for a full review. The concept is spun from the same mechanicals, but Kia says it's a breezy alternative to the closed-roof car from the nose back.

The Soul'ster strikes a balance between the open-air fun of a Jeep and the impracticality of, say, a Suzuki X90. The interior does keep four seats--but the top rolls away into the roll bars to let in all the sunshine drivers can handle.

Along with the Soul'ster, the 2010 Kia Soul's base price was announced. It'll start from $13,995, significantly undercutting the likes of the Scion xB.

Stay tuned for more from the 2009 Detroit auto show, and stay tuned for a full road test on the new Soul.
