Great comparison and I completely agree with his observations and conclusions. It’s uncanny really as I could see myself giving almost the exact same review.
It came down to these 2 for me and I chose the Seltos. I’m in Canada so we get the ventilated seats, heated steering wheel and HUD along with heated rear seats.
A couple of small things. He mentioned the Bose in the Seltos and wished they would have used Harman Kardon as in the Soul. I found the HK in the Soul much too bass heavy without the ability to adjust. The Bose is much cleaner and more enjoyable, to my ears anyway. Savage Geese made quite a point of it in his Soul review. And Apple CarPlay does cover the whole screen in the Seltos. It’s not the default though and needs to be turned on in the settings.
Keep in mind that he is comparing top trims as was I.
I was almost swayed by the Mazda interior quality coming from an Audi. 2 months in and it’s a non issue.
Very happy with my choice but the Mazda is excellent as well for someone with different needs and priorities.

It can change when you go to lower trims, I'm presently comparing the Seltos EX to the CX-30 GS FWD. I just wish the Seltos EX was offered in FWD, as I have no interest or need for AWD. I picked these two as they are in a similar price range as I really don't want to go any higher. I had considered another Soul, looking at the EX Premium version (but wanted a change from yet another Soul - had two) so the Seltos EX and CX-30 GS FWD were close to the same MSRP.
