There are four trim levels, dubbed '1', '2', '3' and 'Sport'. Prices for this Soul are still affordable, starting at around £14,000 for the entry-level 1.6-litre GDI petrol variant. You'll need around £18,500 for the least pricey 1.6 CRDi diesel, this the engine you have to have if you want the option of paying £1,500 more for '7-DCT' auto transmission. All models are reasonably well equipped an offer a DAB radio, Flex Steer variable power-assisted steering, coloured-keyed bumpers, power windows and mirrors, air conditioning, USB and AUX-in ports and six airbags.
Further up the range, there are features like a premium Infiniti sound system, a reversing camera, sat nav and front speaker mood lighting, plus the contrasting roof colour and door mirror casings that will really set your car apart. The top variant gets a huge panoramic glass roof, leather upholstery and smart key entry. In this facelifted model, buyers can choose from 7.0 or 8.0-inch colour touchscreens and via these can use the Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity systems.
As you'd expect, the all-electric Soul EV variant costs quite a lot mre than the conventional models. Expect to have to find around £25,000, even after you've subtracted the generous £4,500 government Plug-in car grant from the initially off-putting asking price.
