Hello! I'm in the market for a new shape Soul and I've found a 14 plate Maxx spec model at a cracking price with Arnold Clark. It's a 1.6 GDI petrol model however, which, upon reading reviews, isn't overly great. 

My daily commute isn't really very long, which to me gives the petrol engine more credit with its lack of dpf and quicker warm up times etc, but are there any owners on here who have experience with the engine? As I have read it's a bit gutless and poor on fuel.

Any advice would be great :)

Thank you

Stephen

Hi Steve421
I have the 1.6GDI model and I find it ok, nice and quiet and reasonable for mileage, especially on longer trips. A Soul's not made for sport driving anyway, so relax and enjoy. Diesel models will face more and more restrictions in future, and they're noisy with a lot of vibes. Good luck with your choice !
