Power and Capability

The 2020 Mazda3 Hatchback powers through any drive with the 2.5L Skyactiv®-G engine. For the acceleration you need to merge on highways, you’ll appreciate the Mazda3 Hatchback’s 186 horsepower and 186 lb.-ft. of torque. The 2020 Kia Soul on the other hand only reaches 147 horsepower and 132 lb.-ft. of torque. Not only does the Mazda3 Hatchback offer more power, it also achieves better gas mileage with an estimated 35 highway mpg compared to the Kia Soul’s 31 highway mpg.

Mazda’s also prepared to keep you safe in the elements with available i-Activ AWD®. While the Kia Soul only offers front wheel drive, the Mazda3 Hatchback offers predictive all-wheel-drive. Your Mazda3 will actively monitor everything from external temperatures to windshield wiper usage and driver steering and braking inputs. Analyzing this information, your Mazda3 can predict and appropriately react where it thinks you may lose traction. The 2020 Kia Soul can’t offer that capability and extra sense of safety.

Cruise With the Latest Technology

Mazda believes in simplicity. The Mazda3 Hatchback offers Proximity Key standard, so your doors unlock as you approach the vehicle, hassle-free. The Kia Soul only offers this feature on higher trims. As you sit in the seat, you can bring your Mazda3 Hatchback’s engine to life with available push start. Keep you and your passenger content with Dual-Zone Automatic Climate Controls in your Mazda3 Hatchback. In the 2020 Kia Soul a compromise must be made with only a single Automatic Climate Control.

Enjoy the Mazda Connect Infotainment system on a larger standard color-touchscreen. View your compatible apps on the 8.8-inch screen and take the stress out of your eyes opposed to the standard 7-inch touchscreen provided standard on the Kia Soul. Connect your smartphone using Apple CarPlay or Android Auto and create a perfect acoustic performance with the available 12-speaker premium Bose audio System, exclusive to Mazda.

Drive Safe with
i-Activsense®

Your safety is of the utmost importance to Mazda, that’s why your Mazda3 Hatchback comes standard with i-Activsense® features such as Mazda Radar Cruise Control with Stop & Go, Blind Spot Monitoring with Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Driver Attention Alert, Lane-Keep Assist, Lane Departure Warning System, and more. The Kia Soul does not offer any of these safety features standard and are only available on higher trim levels. With standard features such as Driver Attention Alert, which monitors your driving behavior and will alert you when driver fatigue or inattentiveness is detected, it’s important to value your own safety first.
