Comparing the Power Ratings and City/Highway Gas Mileage Ratings of the 2021 Mazda CX-3 and the 2021 Kia Soul

Model comparisons are done each and every day throughout the automotive industry, and they’re usually used to point out one specific feature of a new car, truck or SUV. For example, if a company comes out with a new model that’s especially powerful, they’ll compare it to the other models in its class to show just how powerful it is. But then they usually have to ignore gas mileage ratings because gas mileage and power don’t usually go hand in hand.

And that is what’s especially special about the 2021 Mazda CX-3 lineup here at Royal South Mazda in Bloomington, IN. As you can see in our comparison table above, the 2021 Mazda CX-3 not only dominates its 2021 Kia Soul competition in terms of power ratings, but in terms of city and highway gas mileage ratings as well. And, as we said before, that’s not something that happens very often.

And that’s just one of the many reasons why the 2021 Mazda CX-3 is such a special new SUV – and why it’s the perfect choice for anyone in need of a dynamic and fun to drive new SUV.
