2019 Mazda CX-3 vs 2019 Kia Sportage
Rarely do our vehicles need to serve only one function. More often, they are errand-runners and commuter vehicles by day, family haulers at night, and cargo haulers or adventure vehicles on the weekend. That’s where versatile crossovers come in. With split-folding rear seats and rear liftgates that make it easy to configure the interior to fit all needs, crossovers provide drivers with the tools they need to accomplish their growing task lists. Today, we are comparing two popular crossover models, the 2019 Mazda CX-3 and 2019 Kia Sportage, to see what they have to offer active drivers on the move.
Overall, the 2019 Mazda CX-3 comes in with a smaller starting MSRP and a smaller overall footprint that, in general, allows crossover shoppers to spend less at the dealership and less at the pump. However, drivers who need a larger interior space may favor the 2019 Kia Sportage for its larger footprint.
