I have not owned one of these but have ridden on one and I think they are a good car. The problem is with the packages you can find. Power seating is rare and the Primo package is even more hard to find. There are also many many Black carts out there. If yo want black you have no lack of Souls to choose from. If you do not want black the selections are greatly limited.

vs2016 Mazda MAZDA3
2016 Kia Soul winning categories:
  • Power
  • Handling
  • Looks/Style
  • Front Seats
  • Back Seats
  • Cargo Capacity
  • Family Car
  • Value
  • Would Buy
Power Ranked 2016 Mazda MAZDA3 better.
"The Mazda3s with either the 155 hp or 185 hp engines have better 0-60 times than the Kia Soul, which has 164 hp. However, the Soul has better passing power, since its curb weight of 2,714 to 2,837 lbs versus the Mazda3s 2,865 to 3,028 lbs."
Handling Ranked 2016 Mazda MAZDA3 better.
"They are both fun & agile cars to drive, but the Kia is boxy and taller, so its less aerodynamic and has a bit more body roll. The Kia is 17 inches shorter, so its a bit easier to maneuver around tight spaces."
Front Seats Ranked 2016 Mazda MAZDA3 worse.
"Crossover-like ride height plus ample head room."
Back Seats Ranked 2016 Mazda MAZDA3 worse.
"The Kia is taller and squared-off, so it will accommodate 6 ft-plus passengers with ease. However, the Mazda3 will fit rear-facing child seats better."
Cargo Capacity Ranked 2016 Mazda MAZDA3 worse.
"61 cubic feet versus 47 cubic feet"
Family Car Ranked 2016 Mazda MAZDA3 better.
"The Mazda3 hatchback is 177 long, while the Kia Soul is 162 long, which means the Mazda can accommodate rear-facing child seats better, fit 3 child seats across, and a deeper trunk behind the 2nd row for a baby carriage and additional cargo."
Would Buy Ranked 2016 Mazda MAZDA3 worse.
"You get more for your money, with a better warranty. I bought a used 2016 Kia Soul Exclaim (top) trim for $17000 with 5600 miles on it. For that price, you can get a used Mazda3 hatchback Sport (base) trim. Per Consumer Reports, they both have above average reliability."
