Entry-level ‘1’ trim is relatively modestly kitted out, yet still has air-conditioning, 16in alloy wheels, power-folding and electrically adjustable door mirrors, all-round electric windows, a DAB radio and Bluetooth.
We’d suggest moving up to the ‘2’ trim, though. This adds niceties including a 7.0in touchscreen interface with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, sat-nav with live traffic updates, privacy glass, climate control, automatic headlights, rear parking sensors, a rear-view camera, 17in alloy wheels and cruise control.
‘3’ trim is pretty luxurious with keyless entry and go, heated front seats, leather seat trim, front and rear parking sensors, dual-height boot floor, automatic wipers, 18in alloy wheels and a JBL sound system with a subwoofer along with a larger 8.0in touchscreen. It represents a big jump up in price, though, so we wouldn’t bother unless the above are on your ‘must have’ list.
The Sport model comes with the extra performance of its more powerful turbocharged petrol engine, but you also get added features on top of the ‘3’ trim such as a panoramic glass sunroof, heated front and rear seats, xenon headlights with automatic main beams, lane departure warning, blind spot detection and rear cross traffic alert.
Finally the Soul EV comes with highlights including lightweight 16in alloy wheels with low rolling resistance tyres, an 8.0in touchscreen with sat-nav and a charging point locator, climate control, keyless entry, heated front seats, a heated steering wheel, privacy glass, and a reversing camera.
