Which Compact Crossover is Better: Mazda CX-3 or Soul?

Often compact crossovers are little more than cars with higher roofs, which is basically the case with the Soul. It’s just an oddly shaped sedan or hatchback. Key evidence of this is that the Soul isn’t even offered in all-wheel drive, and it never has been in its history. The 2020 Mazda CX-3 on the other hand, has all-wheel drive as an option on its base trim level.

Even though the Soul doesn’t offer all-wheel drive, it still can’t beat the Mazda CX-3 in terms of efficiency. In fact, the Mazda CX-3, even in all-wheel drive, still gets 27-city mpg and 32-highway mpg which is still better than the Soul in FWD.

When it comes to features, the Mazda CX-3 simply leaves the Soul in the dust. Features like standard radar cruise control really set the Mazda CX-3 apart. With this feature, your Mazda CX-3 will detect traffic ahead and automatically adjust your car’s speed to the speed of traffic. If and when traffic clears, your car speeds right back up to your desired speed. In addition, the Mazda CX-3 comes with LED headlights as a standard feature. These will typically last for the entire lifespan of the vehicle, provide a brighter and crisper view of the road, and simply look gorgeous.
