One of the most important things when looking for an effective extra-small SUV is overall space. As you can tell in the table above, the 2020 Kia Soul outpaces the CX-3 in nearly every dimension. With its advantage, the 2020 Kia Soul provides almost 20 cubic feet more storage with the rear seats folded while providing ample room in the front seats. So, whether you need to move across town or hold onto your team’s sports equipment, the Kia Soul has you covered with room to spare for yourself.

Regarding other side amenities, the 2020 Kia Soul comes with a unique set of additional features. Though the Kia Soul does not offer all-wheel drive like the CX-3, the sunny and warm California environment makes it an unnecessary option in everyday travel. But for more zip, the Kia Soul is available with a 1.6L 4-cylinder turbo engine for its GT-Line turbo trim level – a subtle nod to the fact that you can customize your ideal Kia Soul, whereas the CX-3 only comes in the single trim level. The 2020 Kia Soul also comes standard with Apple CarPlay and Android Smartphone Integration for a better and more compatible experience.

Either way you look at it, the 2020 Kia Soul has space, customizability, and integration features that make it stand out compared to the 2020 Mazda CX-3. With so many options to choose from, stop on down to visit us here at Garden Grove Kia to find the ideal 2020 Kia Soul for you!
