Okay, here we go. These are three popular multi-purpose vehicles, the 2017 Kia Soul, 2017 Mazda CX-3 and the 2017 Nissan Juke. So it might be a bumpy road as we compare the features of the these three worthy competitors.
To start, when you're looking for a crossover or a multi-purpose vehicle, then you are looking for sedan-like fuel economy, space on the inside, SUV-like cargo room and some nice features besides. The 2017 Kia Soul has the most spacious interior, for either cargo or passengers. The Soul's 61.3 cubic feet for bags and equipment in back is a quantum leap beyond the 2017 Mazda CX-3's 42.3 cubic feet, and is on the verge of doubling the 2017 Nissan Juke's cargo area. And your passengers can stretch out in the boxy design of the Soul with its 101 cubic feet for passengers, which is 15 percent more room than either the 2017 Juke or 2017 CX-3 have.
|2017 Kia Soul||Vs.||2017 Nissan Juke||2017 Mazda CX-3|
|61.3||Cargo Room (cubic feet)||35.9||42.3|
|101||Passenger Room (cubic feet)||86.7||87.6|

While the 2017 Nissan Juke has NISMO trim levels with an impressive 215 horsepower, the 2017 Kia Soul has an exciting, and all-new turbo engine for its top trim level, which takes your party to the stratosphere with 201 HP. And while that's a slight reduction from the Juke, the Juke's top HP models with all that power are priced $2,000 to $6,000 more than the Soul's top-line Exclaim (!) trim. There's bad news for Mazda, too, as its 2017 CX-3 has only 146 HP in all trim levels. In addition, the 2017 Kia Soul won recognition from the prestigious Car and Driver with a spot in the publication's 10Best Trucks and SUVs for the 2017 model year. Neither the 2017 CX-3 or the 2017 Juke can lay claim to that honor.
