Overall:

Its a great car for the price! However, there could be more space between the accelerator and brake pedals, and some features that work automatically (for safetys sake) in other cars do not on this car.

Overall:

Well, my wife saw the car (2018 Kia Soul plus) and long story short........ we bought it. The car looked exactly like it did in the photo and had the upgraded entertainment system in it which made it easier for me swallow. And the price was great. I walked away from the purchase feeling like my wife won and bought the car she wanted and I thought is was not that bad. If you are married then you know how that goes.

2018 Kia Soul + Review
Delpacrite says:
I was impressed by the squashed curves of this little jewel, the generous headroom, spacious cargo availability (with back seats folded down) and the ease of slipping in and out - almost a walkin. I looked a 3 and they were identical except color but did not cate for the black interior from the window down. Was also flabbergasted that their wad not a manual lever that can be operated inside to unlock the hatchback door. No auto lift on the hatchback lid either. It felt roomier than the Hyundai, though specs are nearly identical and I liked the 17” tires as opposed to the Elantra 16” wheel / tire. I was really torn between the Soul, because I wanted the cargo space and the Elantra because of the amazing handling and because I felt secure in it. I worried about the back seat of the Soul being so close with little to buffer should I get rear ended while carrying grand babies! They are both rated as very safe ! cars! In the end the Soul’s dark interior, which I found depressing, gave ultimate sway to my purchase of ( my third**‍♀️) Hyundai Elantra.
