Do you think it's better to change the rear height to improve aerodynamics?
A spoiler will only make downforce stronger

What measure do you have?

I think it's too low in the back

Kia Soul EV have a rear diffuser in place of exhaust.
No need to use a spoiler on the top of the roof.

ebay has a "Rear Wing Spoiler" listed that may have benefits for reduced drag:
<https://www.ebay.com/itm/PAINTED-TO-MATCH-REAR-WING-SPOILER-FOR-A-KIA-SOUL-FLUSH-MOUNT-FACTORY-2014-2018/232198528389?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649>

Has anyone tried this ?

Any real drag-reduction benefits ?

Quality and fit ?

Thanks,
