Just picked up Soul EV 2020 Limited in Vancouver

Mon May 06, 2019 9:38 am

I've returned my 2016 Soul EV Luxury lease and bought Soul EV 2020 Limited with 64 kWh battery in Canada. Single color - blue, with sunroof.
From dealer words there are no dual color options in Canada.
The new car is faster, smarter and slightly longer. Cargo volume is larger, slightly more legroom, plenty of headroom, backseat armrest added.
Harman Kardon premium sound system with subwoofer, HD radio, big responsive 10.25" navigation screen. Mood lighting. Heated and cooled front power seats with 2 way lumbar support on driver side, heated back seat.
Front ultrasound sensors are gone, as well as power folding mirrors. I don't care about sensors, but liked to see mirrors close when locking the car - you could tell from distance if car is locked or not. Headrests are not adjustable front to back, but softer and more comfortable.
Finally Kia UVO in Canada! Live traffic, weather info, emergency services, remote climate and charge control, etc.
The new car feels very different - breaking is more efficient, acceleration is much faster. Smart regeneration - car slows down on its own if a car in front is slowing down. Lane keep assist, smart cruise control, pedestrian detection, etc. Steering wheel paddles allow to change regen level, turn it off completely(I love it!) or completely stop the car.
Still learning the car, but if you have any questions - ask away, I'll do my best to answer.

Congratulations! You have the same colour that I prefer. It seems BC and Quebec are getting them first - hope there are some left for Ontario but understand the rationale of course.

Does it have roof rails?

Also I assume the sunroof is not the full panoramic version?

Unfortunately no roof rails on my car. I've seen several Kia Soul EV 2020 in 2 dealerships here in Vancouver and none of them has roof rails.
Sunroof is regular size, not panoramic. But it still helps to get the heat out.
