And here is his new one:
The Soul is very…boxy. Like the Nissan Cube and the Scion xB, the Kia Soul seems to have been designed with Legos, rather than a more fluid, malleable material, like clay. There’s a big rectangle, in which you sit, and a small rectangle, containing the motor. As a design exercise, it doesn’t burn many mental calories. You could describe the exterior styling as “clean”. Or, “simple”. Or, “ugly”. Anyway I don’t see the attraction of driving a car that looks like an oversized milk carton.
You won’t find this sort of honesty in the bought-and-paid-for reviews the big boys make in their big boy car mags.
