Re: wifes new toy

How do those compare w/ the xB2 from the perspective of someone who now owns both?
Pros of each?
Cons of each?

Body design wise, I like the xB2 better.

Would also like to see the comparisons between the two.

its actually really nice on the inside, this one is fully loaded: leather, heated seats, sunroof, built in sub, stock 18s, it even has the led halos around the speakers lol. the thing rides crazy high, it feels like an actual suv. insanely smooth and quite, but i would take the xb any today. she loves it though so that's what counts. to sum it up it's basically all the same to me besides body style and engine size. so basically the soul to me has more of a truck / suv feel, and the xb is more for the street...if that makes sense.

Re: rip xb

thanks!


i wanted the speed 6 for a long time that thing is nasty. so far I think I might just do wheels. i have a bad habit of trading cars this is number 7 in 3-4 years. lol especially since i dropped all that money into the box and sold it a month later. who knows though i said the same about the xb. love the car though.

Re: rip xb

I looked at the Mazda 3 when I got the xB.  Performance depends on which model and the xB has much more interior room and a more comfortable back seat.  Personally, I'd rather get a used RX-8 than a new 3 (except for the Mazdaspeed 3, which is AMAZING). 
Back when I got the xB, I was deciding between it and a black RX-8 and yellow/black Mini Clubman.  So, that shows my bias.
(I have a 20 year old Miata that I LOVE and am a huge Mazda fan.)

The 3 is a nice car, just depends on what your priorities for a particular vehicle are.  Planning on keeping it 10 years and having kids that will go from small through teenage in the car makes the rear seat and cargo-room much more important.
What surprised me is how similar the xB drives to the 3, based on how different the xB looks.
Without kids and not keeping the Miata, I would have looked very seriously at the 3.

Re: wifes new toy

Now that she has the Soul and you've traded the xB in for a Mazda 3 . . .
I hope your happy.

I've merged the topics together. The original thread is in the top of each post.
