My wife drives a base model 2014 Soul named Snoopy and my daughter drives a base model 2015 Soul that has yet to be named. We are very satisfied with both cars and may eventually add a third to the garage. Whether we're running around town or on a road trip each Soul has served us well. The cargo volume with seats laid down is large enough to accommodate a drum corps-style marching tuba in the case with room for a couple smaller instruments, too. Peace, love, and happiness, to all!
