Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The Kia XCeed has a higher ride height, a range of cheap-to-run engines and lots of kit as standard. There are more comfortable SUVs with better rear space, though.

Pros
Eye-catching looks
Good range of engines
Well equipped as standard

Cons
Bumpy in town
So-so digital dials
Limited back-seat space

By:

On the styling front, Kia has done a fairly good job.Despite what the cladding may suggest, the XCeed is still front-wheel drive only. it’s a Ceed hatch that has been raised by 44mm to create an almost-crossover. We say almost, because Kia already sells the Sportage as a crossover and the Sorento as a full-size SUV.

Pros
Better looking than a Merc GLA and comparatively much cheaper

Cons
Do you really need a coupé-ified crossover hatchback on stilts?

By: 
topgear.com

If the design, ergonomics and credible dynamics of the most recent Ceed demonstrate that Kia should now be considered alongside any other European maker of mass-market hatchbacks, then the Xceed is the derivative perfectly tailored to the current tastes of European buyers.

Pros
More satisfying to drive than the class average, with good steering
Attractive appearance gives the Xceed a good measure of personality

Cons
Low-speed ride exhibits hard edges, despite the raised ride height
Expensive compared with some rival cars

The 2020 Mazda CX-3 comes with all wheel drive, and front wheel drive. Available transmissions include: 6-speed shiftable automatic.The CX-3 lineup has been reduced to only the Sport trim.Many more standard advanced safety features.Added convenience features including Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

Pros
Attractive and comfortable interior
Engaging driving experience
Impressive fuel economy for a crossover
Good selection of available driver aids and active safety features

Cons
Below-average cargo space
Cramped rear seat
Suspension tuning could be too firm for some

The 2020 Mazda CX-3 is stylish but impractical for a crossover SUV.

Pros
Perky styling
Lots of safety gear
Good mpg
Decent ride and handling

Cons
Cramped rear seat
Limited cargo room
Frustrating infotainment
Grand Touring is pricey

By: 
thecarconnection.com

Mazda bestowed a bounty of updates during the previous model year, which include visual refreshments and additional driver assists, but the company doesn't make any significant changes to the 2020 CX-3 lineup.

Pros
Drives better than its rivals,
drinks less fuel than its rivals,
looks better than its rivals.

Cons
Back seat and cargo area are too small,
coarse engine noises,
can't hide harsh bumps.
