2019 Mazda CX-3 vs 2019 Kia Sportage

2019 Mazda CX-3 vs 2019 Kia Sportage

New vehicle models are constantly cribbing ideas from other vehicle builds. With that concept in mind, we look at the 2019 Mazda CX-3. As a subcompact SUV, the Mazda CX-3 provides the build and look of an SUV in a small and practical package, while still having a much larger cargo capacity than is general for a sedan. Back with its 2019 model out now, the Mazda CX-3 is now more fashionable than ever with a facelifted exterior and a refreshed interior of updated features.

Although quite unique, the 2019 Mazda CX-3 still has a few competitors on the market. As we’ve previously matched the Mazda CX-3 up against some of Subaru’s crossovers, today we’ll look at the Kia Sportage which also recently had a brand-new 2019 model release. It’s the 2019 Mazda CX-3 vs the 2019 Kia Sportage.
