Same here nick. For me, they don't offer much of a better mousetrap with Gen3. I thought Gen2 was a big step from Gen1. Your 1Million edition is terrific & will last you a long time, fully loaded too.I plan on keeping the two that I have as long as I am able to drive. My 2013+ only has 34K miles. The 2018 1 Million was a BIG buy for us. Compared it against the 2019's and with the extras that came with it, there was no comparison for us. We just don't care for the new models.
I am thinking if EVs come down drastically in cost, as forecasted in the next 5 years, to similar prices of ICE vehicles, I might jump to that from my manual transmission life.
If Kia offered up some Special Edition Gen3 package for the Soul, like a GT stick, similar to what Hyundai has done with the Elantra Sport, then I'd jump in to Gen3.
