The Advertiser - Motoring - - FIVE THINGS -

As a city run­about, the Soul is not meant to get the heart rac­ing. In­stead, it feels com­fort­able and safe. The power steer­ing can feel a touch vague at free­way speeds but most of the time the Soul feels se­cure on the road. The brake pedal travel is a touch too long for my lik­ing but I soon got used to it. The 2.0-litre petrol en­gine is not su­per fru­gal but nor is it a gas guz­zler. It’s perky enough, with­out mak­ing a racket. com­bi­na­tions with the re­cent price ad­just­ment, to give it a touch more flair. Con­sider a Soul if you want a roomy small car that stands out from the crowd. Just don’t pay $1 more than the $24,990 drive-away price. Metal­lic adds $550. You may be able to hag­gle on this.
