For our next comparison of the 2019 Mazda3, we wanted something a bit more unique. Just as the Mazda3 underwent a complete redesign for its 2019 model, we wanted a competitor that similarly was affected by a substantial amount of changes for its current/upcoming model. For that, we’ve chosen the 2020 Kia Soul.
While the 2020 Kia Soul might make a poor comparison against the 2019 Mazda3 sedan, it provides a unique yet not dissimilar contrast against the 2019 Mazda3 hatchback. However, what makes this matchup all the more interesting is the number of differences when compared to their previous models. Undergoing massive redesigns, the 2019 Mazda3 and the 2020 Kia Soul represent a first entry in a new generation for their respective models. So, let’s see how well these brand-new entries stand on equal footing. It’s the 2019 Mazda3 hatchback vs the 2020 Kia Soul CUV!
Although its cargo space hasn’t yet been released by Mazda, the 2020 Kia Soul will likely have a bit more cargo space and does have a (confirmed) more affordable price. However, in every other area, the 2019 Mazda3 hatchback provides a superior driving experience. The 2019 Mazda3 has more power, better handling, better driving dynamics, better tech, and more advanced safety features. Some of these additional features include:
High Beam Control
Bose® 12-Speaker Premium Audio
LED Exterior Lighting
G-Vectoring Control Plus
Cruising & Traffic Support
Genuine Wood Layered Interior
Caturra Brown Nappa Leather-Trimmed Upholstery
Digital Owner’s Manual
Mazda Advanced Keyless Entry System
Smart City Brake Support
