Apart from telling us lots of positive stuff about his new ride, Phil has also sent us some cool looking photos that showcase his funky Soul crossover from different angles.

A picture that really caught our attention was the one that showed the gray-painted Kia Soul from the back-end.

Obviously being a big cyclist fan, Phil has chosen a tailgate-mounted Thule 9042 Helium Aero 2-Bike Carrier to carry bikes on his new Kia Soul.
