    I finally saw one in person on the road. It was the light gray color and I think it looked great.

    If I didn't already have an IS350, I'd consider getting one of these for a daily. I haven't driven a Stinger or sat in one, so I can't say how I would perceive the quality of the car. My Lexus feels like a well built car with quality materials in most places. The top of the door interior has some cheap plastic that I don't like but most of the rest of the interior seems like good stuff. The Stinger's interior doesn't quite look to be at the same level even though the pricing is similar, but I'd have to sit in one to be sure.

    I have 1500 miles so far on my Soul Turbo with zero regrets.

    Pros:

    Decent power for an econobox with 6.5 sec 0-60 on the VBOX sport, that's not slow
    Plenty of room for my 6'3" frame
    Comfy seats
    Harman Kardon audio is pretty good
    Dedicated buttons and knobs for often used functions, nothing used often buried in a menu
    Great turning radius because of the short wheelbase
    Great lighting
    Room in the rear seats for actual adults
    Great looking wheels
    Clever packaging allowing a very low rear floor because of the beam axle and great cargo hauling capacity
    All the tech I actually want with advanced keyless entry and push button start, power folding mirrors, blindspot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, navigation with real time traffic, heated seats at all 4 corners and a heated steering wheel, Android Auto and Apple Carplay, Sirius XM
    Bi-Xenon headlights and all other exterior lighting LED

    Cons:

    DCT and turbo motor can be jerky at low speeds, but blow away any CVT once on a roll
    Gas mileage has been just okay at 27 mpg
    Needs paddle shifters
    Choppy ride over broken pavement (the trade off of the short wheelbase and beam axle)
    Back seats do not fold completely flat
    Stupid artificially heavy steering in sport mode which can't be deactivated independently of the rest of sport mode

    The independent rear suspension is what makes me with the new Kona. It has a slightly detuned version of the same engine and tranny.
