Tall drivers will be relieved to find plenty of reach and height adjustment available for the Soul’s steering wheel, which already makes the job of getting comfortable easier than in a Nissan Juke that has steering wheel height adjustment only. There’s a wide range of up and down adjustment to the driver’s seat, too, with the only annoyances being the lack of lumbar adjustment and, like many of its rivals, a ratchet lever for the backrest recline. This offers a limited range of positions for the backrest angle. Only on the most expensive Sport model are these irritations overcome, thanks to its standard 10-way electric seat adjustment, including lumbar.
The dashboard is sensibly laid out, so you shouldn’t struggle to find the light switch or change the heater’s settings on the move. The large, clear instruments are easy to read as well.
